Hunt’s Photo Nifty Fifty Workshop: Morning in Rockport
July 2 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am
July 2 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am
- Make sure to dress accordingly with the most current weather report.
- You will only need a 50mm lens on this walk. Are other prime lenses acceptable? Olympus/Panasonic users may use a 25mm lens, since it gives the same look as a 50mm and other primes can be used as an alternative, but we ask that you try to keep it at one prime in as close to that range as possible.
- A tripod is not necessary, unless you want to carry it.
- Feel free to bring snacks and water.
- Bring an extra camera battery and memory cards.
- As always, bring your enthusiasm and creative thoughts!

About the Nifty Fifty Workshops
Every photographer at one point or another has the internal struggle before going to photograph: What lenses should I bring with me today? The common answer is as many as I can without being too uncomfortable. And so we pack up our wide, standard, telephoto, prime, and macro lenses and head out into the field, forcing ourselves to endure limitless choices while sacrificing simplicity.
Our Nifty Fifty workshops flip the script and force you to only carry one lens: A 50mm lens, nostalgically referred to as a “nifty fifty”. With limitations, what can you– the photographer, the creator, the artist– achieve?
These workshops will start with our basic photo walk, where we will meet in the field and work with only a 50mm lens in a specific location. Attendees will then submit a handful of images for an online image review, to be held a few days later. During that image review, we will be able to see others’ work, discuss how to achieve different effects, and consider editing choices. This is an excellent workshop for all photographers–from Beginner to Advanced–because it forces you to work in a different way.
For this workshop, we will be photographing a morning in Rockport. Rockport is a premiere destination for photographers. The town is an eclectic mix of unique storefronts, a beautiful harbor, boats, and a rich fishing tradition that offers a wide variety of photographic subjects. We will spend the morning photographing these scenes and discussing composition, subject development, and more! Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend!
*Question: Are other prime lenses acceptable? Olympus/Panasonic users may use a 25mm lens, since it gives the same look as a 50mm and other primes can be used as an alternative, but we ask that you try to keep it at one prime in as close to that range as possible. Remember- this is a “nifty fifty” workshop, not a “mighty ninety” workshop. (And does that even really rhyme?)
