Hunt’s Photo Workshop: Action & Sports- Myopia Polo
July 28, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm$129.99
Join Hunt’s Photo Education for an action packed photography workshop! On this walk, we will be giving instruction and photographing the fast-paced sport of Polo at the Myopia Polo Grounds in South Hamilton!
We will begin at our classroom at Hunt’s Photo & Video in Melrose, Massachusetts where we will show images from previous years of photography at Myopia and discuss different techniques of photographing action, including how to compose and expose, choose your focus properly, and stop and pan action. After this, we will break for lunch (not included) and regroup at the Myopia Polo Grounds in South Hamilton (about a 35-minute drive from our store). Leading up to the match on the grounds, we will prep by going over the layout of the field and the day, and also photograph some of the lifestyle of the event, including the prominent and often posh tailgating! The match will last from about 3pm until about 5:30pm, with a traditional “fox hunt” as an intermission. (Don’t worry- no foxes will be harmed!) The action, detail, and energy is fantastic!
For this workshop, we will have both classroom AND hands-on instruction from Hunt’s Photo Educators.
For this event, we will have available Tamron long telephoto lenses for use with Nikon and Canon, as well as selected long-telephoto lenses for use with Olympus, Sony, Fuji, and Panasonic.
This event will be a unique experience! Join us to stop the action!
