Fall Photography Water Reflection Meetup

Saturday the 6th of November
Guiffrida Park - 4pm - 2 hours
A very popular hiking spot called Chauncey peak overlooks a cute reservoir that is gorgeous in the fall with all the autumn colors reflecting off it. We will not be climbing the mountain and seeing the peak but rather taking the waterside trail to an opening and then capturing the water reflection in all its glory!

Cromwell Dog park - 3pm - 2 hours
Cromwell Dog park features a trail that hikes up a mountain to a clearing where you can easily see the sun set on a mountain in the distance. We will climb up the mountain using the trail to the top prior to sunset. There are views of the sun itself disappearing behind the mountain depending on time of year but also beautiful mountain and hill top views for miles, you can even see a bridge over the river from a few towns over!

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Hartford.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next one is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Hartford Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitizer.

Emily was awesome. I enjoyed spending Sat & Sunday at 2 separate classes. She?s knowledgeable, talented and very welcoming. I wasn?t sure I?d be comfortable in a super strangers but it was a great day.
