Smartphone Photography - Getting Started at Union Station

Learn to use the camera that’s always with you and go beyond taking a simple snapshot to creating a photograph that’s an artistic expression unique to your vision. Join me with your smartphone and capture the beauty of historic Union Station and its surroundings all decked out in colorful holiday decorations. 

This is a fabulous venue to capture images of people and architecture in a bustling urban environment. It provides opportunities for images of the iconic columns, chiseled inscriptions and Union Station’s neoclassical facade.

Union Station harkens from 1903 and was designed by Daniel H. Burnham, the principal architect of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. The station is designed in the Beaux-Arts style after the Baths of Caraculla and Diocletian and the triumphal Arch of Rome.

We’ll start with the basics of learning to use a smartphone camera and review the settings for optimal image capture to pro tips and techniques of exposure, composition and focus that produce the best results.

The number of photography apps available seems endless and can be very confusing when trying to choose what to purchase.  I will cover some of the most exciting apps for image capture and processing used by mobile photographers worldwide so you can achieve your artistic vision. 

This class is designed for users of iOS and Android mobile devices.  The list of apps will be included in your confirmation letter and should run no more than $10.

Topics include:

•              Proper techniques and settings for smartphone image capture
•              Tips and techniques for using phone’s native camera
•              Learn exciting capture and editing apps
•              Hands-on capture and editing
•              Image critique and feedback

Participants will need to bring a fully charged smartphone. A charger is a good idea too as photos quickly drain the batteries.
