Hunt’s Photo Walk: Learning Manual Mode in the Field – Castle Island, Boston

September 23, 7:00 am - 9:00 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.

Walk Description
Learning about photography can be a real challenge. There are so many pieces to the puzzle of photography, some of which use confusing terminology. For this reason, we often start newcomers off using the Priority Modes because it’s “easier”. In reality, these priority modes are just a short-term solution. It’s important to fully understand the “why” and “how” of your camera settings, and learning to master manual is an excellent way to do so.

In this outdoor, hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how and why to control aperture, shutter, and ISO, as well as how to get the right exposure in the field. We’ll spend the morning exploring different scenes and learning to balance the light by reading our meter and covering the most important questions of all: what should I change and when?
Castle Island is a terrific area with a variety of fine-details and interesting scenes that can lead to terrific photographs. Join us to strengthen your photographic knowledge!

Emerging Series- A Guideline for Photo Walks during the era of COVID-19
