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 Hunt’s Photo Education for a photo walk in the historic North End of Boston. During the walk, we will discuss shooting in lower light with an emphasis on black and white photography. This will include assistance with exposure, composition, focusing, use of tripods, and a myriad of other settings and concepts.
Boston is often referred to as a “city of neighborhoods”. One of the city’s most notable neighborhoods, and its oldest, is the North End. Beginning in the 1600s this is where immigrants to the New World entered the city for the first time, which made the North End a busy, vibrant center of activity. Today, this tightly knit area is known as “Little Italy” given the prominent Italian-American influence and population found here. Quaint eateries, fine restaurants, and historic locations are characteristics that make the North End one of Boston’s premier destinations.
This walk is also an excellent chance to work on street photography. During the first few hours, our light will start to change, giving us some excellent opportunities at casual portraits and street scenes. As we move into more of the nighttime light, we will shift to long exposures. Join us for this very diverse photo walk!
