Hunt’s Photo Walk: Emerging Series- MIT Architecture & Memorial Drive
October 21, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
One event on October 21, 2020 at 4:00 pm
This Walk is part of our Emerging Series, as we cautiously begin to emerge from the COVID-19 lockdown. For this series of walks, we have chosen areas that are more spread out and with less foot traffic. We will also be limiting our group size to a maximum of 8 attendees with one instructor. After the course description (but before registration) will be guidelines for these walks. Please make sure to read them prior to registering.
Join Hunt’s Photo Education for a photo walk through MIT in Cambridge and onto Memorial Drive overlooking the Charles. On the walk, we will discuss Architectural Photography, Image Composition, Long Exposures, and Black and White Photography. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.
MIT is not only famous as a research institute and school, but also for the stunning architecture that has been commissioned. These include the Landau Building (“The Wedge”), The Dreyfuss Building, Simmons Hall (“The Sponge”), the Zesiger Center (“Z-Center”), the newly constructed Sean Collier Memorial, and the Stata Center (pictured). We will discuss the many ways these pieces of architecture can be photographed in the evening and night skies. Our walk will take us in and out of the MIT campus and along Memorial Drive and the Charles River. If weather allows, we will have the opportunity to photograph the sunset along the river as well.
Emerging Series- A Guideline for Photo Walks during the era of COVID-19
As the COVID lockdown ends and social restrictions begin to ease, we have decided to start offering our popular Hunt’s Photo Walks again.
Hunt’s Photo Education remains dedicated to the health and safety of every single attendee, student, and customer, first and foremost. We also are committed to the best possible learning experience. We have put forth rules and guidelines for Photo Walks that occur during the era of COVID.
•We will have no more than 6-8 attendees per Photo Walk with a single instructor
•We ask that all attendees wear a mask. (Please make sure the mask covers your mouth and nose.)
•We ask that all attendees socially distance 6 feet from one another, unless you are attending with the other person
•Hunt’s Photo Educators will be unable to physically handle others’ cameras
•Consider bringing sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer
•If you are sick or feeling unwell, stay home! We will gladly give you credit towards a future walk!
These guidelines will stay in place until further notice. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are attending this walk, we will send out more specific instructions to you a few days prior to the walk. Please note: Some slight details above can be subject to change. This email will detail any of those minor changes.
