This Walk is part of our Emerging Series, as we cautiously begin to emerge from the COVID-19 lockdown. For this series of walks, we have chosen areas that are more spread out and with less foot traffic. We will also be limiting our group size to a maximum of 8 attendees with one instructor. After the course description (but before registration) will be guidelines for these walks. Please make sure to read them prior to registering.
Join instructor Don Toothaker for a special photo walk in Haverhill, MA where we will concentrate on being able to see and photograph in Black & White. During the walk, we will also discuss elements that contribute to become more adept at both Black and White and night photography, including exposure, focusing, composition and much more! This will be followed the next night by an image review/critique featuring images taken on the photo walk by each attendee. Photographers of all skill levels are welcome!
Haverhill, Massachusetts was once known as the “Queen Slipper City” for its high percentage of shoes produced in the town. The town retains the look of a manufacturing town, and this look translates extremely well to the look of Black & White photography. On this walk, we will move about the downtown area and along the Merrimack River at dusk and into the night. Our task will be to focus our energies into how to effectively see and create images in Black & White.
After the walk, attendees will be asked to edit 2-3 images in black and white and submit them for our image review/critique, which will happen the following night. We will discuss each attendee’s images and look at all the elements of photography discussed on the walk. Please note that this session will be recorded in case you cannot attend.
Emerging Series- A Guideline for Photo Walks during the era of COVID-19
As the COVID lockdown ends and social restrictions begin to ease, we have decided to start offering our popular Hunt’s Photo Walks again.

These guidelines will stay in place until further notice. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
