2017, September 10: iPhone Photography, Getting Started - At the National Portrait Gallery

Join Karen Messick in Washington DC for a afternoon of “iPhoneography!”

Our venue for this class is at the beautiful National Portrait Gallery which offers endless possibilities for shooting. From abstract sculptures, colorful paintings and wall hangings, to the architecture of the building and the impressive Kogod courtyard.

  • We’ll begin by preparing you to capturing images on your iPhone. We’ll review the different apps that we’ll be using so you have some familiarity with them before the shooting session.
  • While shooting, Karen will help you choose the appropriate app for the scene and help with composition and framing as well.
  • After shooting, we'll then cover some of the processing apps so you'll leave the museum with your own works of art!

We’ll look at Camera+, Hipstamatic and more. Once you are registered for this, you will receive a confirmation letter which will list which apps you will need to pre-load before the class.
