Join Hunt’s Photo Education and Sigma for an action-packed photography workshop!

Join Hunt’s Photo Education for an action-packed photography workshop! On this walk, we will be giving instruction and photographing the fast-paced sport of Polo at the Myopia Polo Grounds in South Hamilton!
We will begin at our classroom at Hunt’s Photo & Video in Melrose, Massachusetts where we will show images from previous years of photography at Myopia and discuss different techniques of photographing action, including how to compose and expose, choose your focus properly, and stop and pan action. After this, we will break for lunch (not included) and regroup at the Myopia Polo Grounds in South Hamilton (about a 35-minute drive from our store). Leading up to the match on the grounds, we will prep by going over the layout of the field and the day, and also photograph some of the lifestyle of the event, including the prominent and often posh tailgating! The match will last from about 3pm until about 5:30pm, with a traditional “fox hunt” as an intermission. (Don’t worry- no foxes will be harmed!) The action, detail, and energy is fantastic!
For this workshop, we will have both classroom AND hands-on instruction from Hunt’s Instructors.

The July 29th date will be a unique event where you will have gear available for you to try out! Sigma’s famed long telephoto lenses (150-600mm, 50-500mm, 70-200mm and more!) will be available to borrow for the afternoon, as well as Manfrotto monopods. Sigma professional Marc Farb will also be on hand for this event to assist. 
This workshop is also a part of our Hunt’s Photo Education Weekend of Workshops with Sigma, in which you can sign up for just this event or the entire weekend for a discounted rate.
Hunt’s Photo Education is once again teaming up with Sigma to produce a trio of walks and workshops geared to get you excited about a variety of different photographic styles. The entire weekend will be hosted by Hunt’s Photo Education staff and Sigma professional Marc Farb with lenses unique to each event. This will be a fun event!

On Friday, we will take a walk through MIT in Cambridge to photograph some of the most unique architecture in Massachusetts, then onto Memorial Drive overlooking the Charles. We continue on Saturday with another installment in our Portrait Series that will emphasize creating portraits using only natural light. We conclude Sunday as we capture the action at the Myopia Polo grounds in South Hamilton.
