Hunt’s Photo Workshop: Using On-Camera Filters, ft. Fan Pier, Boston

May 4, 1:00 pm - 8:30 pm


In the age of film photography, filters were used to great effect. Because darkrooms were less accessible for editing (than editing in the digital age), filters were used to “get it right in camera”. Despite all the editing programs available today, it is still best to “get it right in camera”, and certain filters still produce vastly superior effects that cannot be achieved by post-processing alone.

Join Hunt’s Photo Educators Rick Berk and Emily Hojnowski for a hands-on photography workshop designed to help attendees create better images by utilizing long-exposure. We will start with a classroom session explaining the different filter types and their uses, as well as examples of when and why to use them. Circular Polarizers, Neutral Density Filters, and ND Graduated Filters will all be covered. At about 3:30pm we will break and reconvene at Fan Pier in Boston at 4:30pm to put into practice the filters and techniques. We will conclude the walk around 8:30pm.
We will have some Benro Neutral Density and Circular Polarizing filters on-hand for attendees to use in order to test the techniques discussed in the class. If attendees are interested in purchasing filters to use during the event, we will be offering a discount on them the day of the workshop.

If you are attending this walk, we will send out more specific instructions to you a few days prior to the walk. However, be advised we will be meeting at Hunt’s Photo, Melrose at the time listed. We will be traveling separately to Fan Pier in Boston. We will not need to return to Melrose and will conclude the workshop around 8:30pm in Boston. Please note: Some slight details above can be subject to change. This email will detail any of those minor changes.
Please read Hunt’s Terms & Conditions before signing up.
