iPhone Photography Walk, Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland – May 6, 2017

Daffodil Hill, Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland

In mid-September, 2016 about 25 people, equipped with smartphones, joined me for an iPhone photography walk at Lake View Cemetery, which is just east of University Circle in Cleveland. The weather cooperated and we had great fun photographing the early fall color, big trees, monuments, Tiffany stained glass windows and mosaic panels, and picturesque statuary at this historic cemetery. The executive team at Lake View Cemetery invited me to conduct two more photo walks in 2017, and the first is scheduled for Saturday, May 6, from 2-4 pm.

Daffodils at Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland

Lake View Cemetery, which was founded in 1869  and covers 285 acres, is the final resting place for more than 107,000 people, including President James Garfield and his wife, Lucretia, as well as many famous Clevelanders, notably billionaire John D. Rockefeller, Samuel Mather, and Senator Marcus Hanna. Lake View Cemetery is also a horticultural treasure, highlighted in early spring by thousands of daffodils that bloom on the wooded slopes of Daffodil Hill, shown in the two photographs above.

Anyone can take a snapshot with a smartphone, but to take your iPhone photography to a higher level requires a knowledge of lighting and composition in landscape and garden photography, as well as how to control exposure, sharpness, and depth-of-field, using the iPhone’s built-in features as well as a variety of apps that provide additional capabilities. I will share tips on these and many other aspects of iPhone photography as we stroll the grounds at Lake View Cemetery.
