Experienced shutterbugs and novice selfie-takers alike will fall in love with Boston’s photogenic Seaport neighborhood, which is full of sights, both nautical and terrestrial. There’s no better place to start a photographic journey than NEMA Boston, the new collection of Boston luxury apartments for rent nestled in this historic area. Keep reading for a NEMA residents’ guide to taking your Seaport photography to the next level!

Residents who need a little help working a camera or finessing a piece of photographic art should sign up for classes at the Boston Photography Workshops, where everyone from newbies to experts will find something informative. Their offerings for beginners include classes that will help students learn how to use a digital camera, take better food photos for Instagram, or even dive into the intimidating world of night photography, while photographers of every comfort level will find their photo walk class on composition a helpful refresher. When they’re finished taking pictures, residents should sign up for one of the Lightroom classes to help them make the most of the high-tech post-processing software that gets photos to pop.

Once residents are comfortable with their DSLRs, they should venture out into the humming Seaport area and explore some of its most photogenic hot spots. A great place to start is Fan Pier Park, a narrow band of green on the waterfront that features colorful flowers, an intimate lawn with benches, and an impressive close-up view of the Downtown skyline. Just south of Fan Pier Park, photographers will find the iconic Harborwalk, home to another stretch of stunning skyline. In the channel off the Harborwalk, the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum's 18th-century ships and costumed docents will step right out of history into photographs that will capture another intrinsic part of the Boston experience.

NEMA Boston residents looking to practice their food photography should head to the new Taiyaki NYC location in the Seaport. Social media followers will love pictures of Taiyaki’s signature fish-shaped ice cream cone, complete with colorful swirl ice cream and a tiny unicorn horn cone topper. Don’t worry; they also serve matcha lattes and cold brew to help you cool down after hiking around the Seaport in search of the perfect pic.

Upon returning to NEMA, residents will find a host of photogenic amenities right at home, including the Lobby Lounge, the verdant Garden pocket park, and the panoramic views from the rooftop lounge and Skyline Pool. But don’t take our word for it!
