Join Hunt’s Photo Education for a photo walk featuring Golden Hour along the Charles River Esplanade.
The Charles River Esplanade has experienced immense changes over the past 100 years to what we see today. Originally “The Embankment”, the area expanded in the first half of the 20th century to include boat landings, playgrounds, trees and plant life, and the Hatch Memorial Shell. In the second half of the 20th century, Storrow Drive and the Dr. Paul Dudley White Bike Path–an 18-mile stretch– were added.
Photography will start at the Storrow Lagoon location working our way along the Charles River and back towards the Longfellow Bridge. We will explore scenes and compositions as we go making use of the golden hour light until ending at our final location, a dusk shot of the city of Boston and the Longfellow Bridge! Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend!
