Workshop: Saturday August 20th, 3:30-7pm
Join Hunt’s Photo Education for another entry in our series of portrait workshops where we will be working in natural light and flash! We will emphasize creating portraits using available light through subject placement and composition through the aid of diffusers and reflectors. We will then separately demonstrate reasons to add in flash.

We will begin photographing late afternoon in the sunlight (and shade) and work to sunset. You are welcome to bring your own flashes and light modifiers (soft boxes, etc), but you also can use what we have with us as well. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.

A new(ish) location! We will be holding this workshop at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. This wonderful location has terrific greenery and well-manicured lawns, perfect for any portrait session!
