Photo Day at President Lincoln’s Cottage on April 25th

The first-ever Photo Day at President Lincoln’s Cottage will be held Saturday, April 25, 2009.   Photo Day offers amateur photographers a rare chance to take interior and exterior shots of the Cottage and a scenic vista overlooking downtown Washington, DC.   Interior photography and access to the vista are exclusive to this program.  

All photographers will be asked to submit their favorite images to our 2009 Photo Contest for a chance to have their image featured on our blog and turned into a postcard for sale in the President Lincoln’s Cottage Museum Store!

    This is great; I’ve already bought my ticket! Could you provide links to the rules and requirements for the day (such as expected FAQs; equipment we can and can’t bring, such as tripods; will flash photography be allowed; etc)?

  2. Cool, this is a nice project to work on, Yes of course as Brian said, it would be nice to tell us what can we bring along or what are we not able to do there.
