Join Hunt’s Photo Education for a pair of action packed photography walks/workshops! On these walks, we will be giving instruction and photographing the fast-paced sport of Polo at the Myopia Polo Grounds in South Hamilton!
For both dates, we will begin at our classroom at Hunt’s Photo & Video in Melrose, Massachusetts where we will show images from previous years of photography at Myopia and discuss different techniques of photographing action, including how to compose and expose, choose your focus properly, and stop and pan action. After this, we will break for lunch (not included) and regroup at the Myopia Polo Grounds in South Hamilton (about a 35-minute drive from our store). Leading up to the match on the grounds, we will prep by going over the layout of the field and the day, and also photograph some of the lifestyle of the event, including the prominent and often posh tailgating! The match will last from about 3pm until about 5:30pm, with a traditional “fox hunt” as an intermission. (Don’t worry- no foxes will be harmed!) The action, detail, and energy is fantastic!
Also for both dates, we will have both classroom AND hands-on instruction from Hunt’s Instructors.
The July 1st date will feature the East Coast Women’s Open Final and will be an excellent opportunity to practice capturing action!
The July 29th date will be a unique event where you will have gear available for you to try out! Sigma’s famed long telephoto lenses (150-600mm, 50-500mm, 70-200mm and more!) will be available to borrow for the afternoon, as well as Manfrotto monopods. Sigma professional Marc Farb will also be on hand for this event to assist. This workshop is also a part of our Hunt’s Photo Education Weekend of Workshops with Sigma, in which you can sign up for just this event or the entire weekend for a discounted rate.
Both events will be unique experiences! Join us to stop the action!
