Creative Smartphone Photography Field Shoot - Chinatown/Penn Quarter
See the world in a new way with the camera that’s always with you, your Smartphone. Enjoy capturing images on your phone on a photo walk that’s designed to spark creativity! We begin outdoors at the National Portrait Gallery and then explore the surrounding Chinatown/Penn Quarter area with its quirky architecture and street scenes.
The class will start with basic instruction on the operation of the native mobile phone’s camera. We’ll then cover some of the more advanced features of setting focus and exposure independently.
We’ll explore how to turn the mobile camera’s limitations such as one lens, fixed aperture, no zoom and a small sensor to advantages using creative techniques of focus, exposure and composition.
You’ll create pictures on an easily paced photo walk with guided instruction coupled with gentle critique and suggestions to make your pictures the best they can be. Later, after a bit of time dedicated to editing for the best results, we’ll share with each other our creative vision from the photos created earlier in the day.
In addition to covering the native phone camera settings, Michael will also cover Snapseed, one of the most popular editing apps for image editing used by mobile photographers worldwide. This app will help you achieve your artistic vision thru editing. Another app will be covered which helps remove unwanted objects. Details are in the confirmation letter.
This class is designed for users of iOS and Android mobile devices. Participants will need to bring a fully charged smartphone.
COVID Safety Practices: Please bring a mask and wear it anytime we are gathered close together or when the instructor is working with you. When we are spread out you can remove your mask if you’d like.
