Located an hour west of Boston, Sturbridge Village is a proud replication of an 18th century New England town. Sturbridge Village is a living history museum that features many authentic period buildings and homes to explore and enjoy. The village is also inhabited by re-enactors who provide colorful insight to life in New England during the 18th century. Sturbridge Village is a wonderful destination for a multitude of photographic opportunities as well as a glimpse into a bygone era.
Olde Sturbridge Village is perhaps one of the best places to have both a Photo Walk and a class. There’s a little bit of everything at this living history museum, from macro and closeup with fine details to architecture, from portraits to landscapes. We will photograph both indoors and outdoors, in regular light as well as very low light. We will discuss how to work with subjects to create a story, and also work on settings to fine-tune focus and exposure! This Photo Walk is one of the best opportunities to build your photographic knowledge, no matter what level. This walk is equally as beneficial as a first walk or a twentieth walk, as the area has so much to offer!
After the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to review their images and make some edits. We will then reconvene online with an image review where we will discuss many of the factors that we discussed on the walk portion of the workshop. This workshop is an excellent opportunity to hone in on and develop your photography skills.
Join us for a great experience!
Please note: The cost of your ticket does not include entrance to Sturbridge Village. You can purchase tickets up to two weeks in advance here.
