Description

Join Hunt’s Photo Education for a walk to the picturesque “Bridge of Flowers” in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts and the area surrounding it.
Shelburne Falls was once a great fishing area for Native Americans, but progressed into a manufacturing town. This area has a nice view and allows for interesting shots of the falls. The old trolley bridge was converted into a walkway and managed by the women of the town. They planted flowers and shrubs to create a more pleasing atmosphere. Today, thousands of visitors come to view this area and photograph the flowers.
Although the falls setting is more of a landscape viewing, the bridge of flowers poses an excellent opportunity for macro lovers. We will divide our time on this walk between macro/close-up photography on and around the bridge and landscape/longer exposure photography around the falls. This will be an excellent opportunity to utilize both macro lenses and neutral density filters.
