Join Hunt’s Photo Education for our annual Holiday Light Photo Walks to Boston Common & Gardens! On these walks, we will discuss the many aspects that go into photographing in low-light, especially when encountering holiday lights, including Image Composition, Long Exposures, Architectural Photography and many additional aspects of photographing holiday lights. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend!
Effectively photographing holiday lights during the “blue hour” and at night can be a challenge. However, with proper exposure and balance of composition, you have the ability to capture great detail and color through your lenses. Boston Common and the Gardens provide an excellent opportunity to to test out these skills. The Common gets decked out in holiday lights every year, and combined with the natural beauty of the landscape, we have a great chance for beautiful nightscapes! Join us for a terrific and beautiful experience!
