Hunt’s Photo Walk: Emerging Series- Nature at Horn Pond
October 22, 7:30 am - 10:30 am
One event on October 22, 2020 at 7:30 am
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 as we explore Horn Pond’s 102-acre body of water along the Aberjona River in Woburn, Massachusetts. On this walk, we will have numerous shooting opportunities from birds to flowers to landscapes and more! We may have a chance at some hummingbirds, as well as other birds in the area, and we will benefit from the flowers of the season. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend!
Horn Pond is a wonderfully scenic area, offering many outdoor activities such as hiking and bike riding. These same trails are an excellent place to explore many types of photographic opportunities, emphasizing nature, landscape, and macro. On many of our walks, the quality of day can positively or negatively affect how our images turn out. On this walk, we will emphasize making the best out of any situation, whether cloudy, sunny or rainy (well, not too rainy). Bring your creative thoughts!
We recommend having both a standard zoom lens and telephoto zoom lens, preferably one that will go to 200mm or above.
Please note: There will be a good amount of walking on this Photo Walk. Nothing too treacherous, but make sure to wear comfortable shoes!
