Greenfield Village – Through My Eyes

May 30, 2014

“My love of photography is melded with the ability to capture what I want to remember in the moment I want to never forget.” Devin Dygert

As I mentioned in my last blog post, a field trip to Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan, was part of my Midwest Photography Workshops “Intermediate Shooting Techniques” class.  It had been years since I visited this Southeastern Michigan historical gem and I was truly excited to have the opportunity learn new photography techniques while capturing new, unforgettable memories.

Ten students participated (five from the day class and five from the evening class).  Our instructor, Bryce Denison brought along his “trusty assistant”, his experienced and knowledgeable wife, Linda, who I just happened to graduate with from high school — Garden City East Class of 1976!!!!!

Considering the crazy weather we had been experiencing, it turned out to be a pretty nice day, albeit a little cool and breezy, but the sun was shining brightly!  In addition to learning about indoor timed exposures and landscape composition, we enjoyed a wonderful, authentic 19th century lunch at The Eagle Tavern.

Below are a few of my more memorable photos from that day.  Enjoy!
