There is a big re-enactment at Hale Farm in August. I have read that it gets about 1000 re-enactors. Hale Farm is down in the valley near the covered bridge. Normally they do not allow tripods. They may drop that rule for this event, better check with Hale management. Their logic is that a pro uses a tripod. A pro makes pictures to make money. They want the money. Naturally I don’t agree with this logic. I do find hand holding a 7x17 challenging.
“Hale farm is the museum farm we have visited near your home”. No, Hale Farm is down in the valley south of the covered bridge, west of the beaver pond. See their website for directions. http://www.wrhs.org/Properties/Direc...e_Farm_Village
We as a group have visited the OH Farm Museum, 1.4 miles from my house, on Southern Rd. in Richfield. The owner Jim Fry encourages us to make pictures, especially if you give him a print. I worked there two years and gave him 73 prints. Peter worked there a lot with me and gave him scans of his 8x10 and 5x7s for his website.
Let me know if you talk to Hale Farm about tripod permission in August.
