Boston Photo Class and Tour

Last week, I attended BCAE’s Urban Landscape Photography class. It was a 3 hour class where we spent a few minutes in the classroom, walked around Copley Square where we got more instructions and feedback from our instructor, and then we headed back to the classroom to discuss what we learned and to give the instructor feedback about the class.

Copley Square is just a 5 minute walk, but we stopped every half block to take pictures. Here is the Berkeley Building (also known as the Old John Hancock Building) and the John Hancock Tower.

Walking toward Copley Square. You can see the Berkeley Building as a reflection on the John Hancock Tower.

In the middle of Copley Square. I love the old (church) and the new (the tower).

Someone captured the tower in the reflection of the water, so others try to replicate it.

The John Hancock Tower, another side.  The then walked to the right corner (in the picture below).

Here’s a reflection of me walking toward the corner. You can see another photographer looking up the edge of the building.

I didn’t get on the ground, so mine’s not exactly what he got, but here is looking up the John Hancock Tower.

Walking back to the classroom, we took the long way, stopping at several places to get more practice. Here is fence along a church near Copley Square.

I focused on a particular area, so the rest wasn’t in focus.

This was probably my favorite picture of the evening.

It was almost 9 and getting dark. I left the shutter open for 10 secs to let in all the light and it captured the movements.

Here’s another, but nothing drove by me as close as the previous one.

Another try but not open nearly as long.

What a fun night! It was great to be around other photographers and also be able to ask questions and then try things.  I have signed up for 3 other sessions with another company called Remember Photo. Those will be in August and September.

    I loved them – exciting to see such prints. You should be proud. And Boston is so beautiful. So much contrast. It’s great.

    Your hotos are so 3D!! Really loved the open shutter for 10 seconds; light ‘bouncing’ everywhere!!
    I’m so glad you take the time (and money, of course) to go to these classes.
    Take care, hugs,
