$49 for an iPhone Photo Walk and Slideshow ($100 Value)
Before students begin taking pictures on their Photo Walk, they attend a lecture that includes demonstrations and instruction on photo-taking techniques with a focus on improved composition. On Saturday mornings, photographer Cindi Hobgood leads tour groups on Intro to iPhoneography photo expeditions. Plotted around some of Washington’s most notable landmarks, the 3.5-hour walks help clients learn how to take the best pictures possible with their iPhones. After the class, students email Cindi their favorite shots, and she assembles them into a slideshow that she emails to the whole class. Students must bring their own iPhones; loaners or rentals are not available. Expeditions depart from the JW Marriott in DC's Penn Quarter, and run from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
SCOUT Photo Expeditions
Already an award-winning photographer, Cindi Hobgood also spent 25 years scouting locations for Hollywood studios and TV programs. Her locations were showcased on The Amazing Race, used by Disney, HBO, and Columbia Pictures, and shot by Spike Lee and Sam Shepard. As a location scout, Hobgood recorded her finds with a camera, carefully composing each shot in order to convey each scene’s mood, landscape, and lighting.
Today, she teaches others how to hone a similarly discerning eye during instructive photo expeditions. Magic Hour walking tour send participants snapping shots of the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Potomac just as the sun comes up. Memorials by Moonlight takes walkers on a nocturnal jaunt past sites such as the Lincoln Memorial, and Intro to iPhoneography helps pupils get the most out of their iPhone cameras. There are even a few out-of-town trips for adventurous shutterbugs.
