Saba Alhadi, a former travel agent, began building a photographic portfolio as she turned her lens on Boston and developed photography walking tours through historic neighborhoods in order to share her knowledge of Boston's history and inspire others to become better photographers by capturing the beauty that surrounds them.
On a given tour, she reveals historic details about Boston's hidden houses, the swamp that become a French-inspired neighborhood and public garden, and the famous patriots of the American Revolution. Meanwhile, she interlaces the history with creative photography tips on how to understand camera settings, how light strikes different buildings, and how a reflection in a window can become a composition. She also devises scavenger hunts throughout Boston, sending participants scattering to decode cryptic clues that draw on notable local facts.
I would highly recommend PhotoWalks. Our group chose the Boston Gardens PhotoWalk, and Saba had so much information on the location as well as on getting the most out of our cameras. She worked with adults and children in our group and we all want to do it again!
