Lake View Cemetery iPhone Photography Walk – September 30, 2017

Schofield Mausoleum, The Lake View Cemetery

Do you own an iPhone? Would you like to improve your iPhone landscape photography skills? If so, join us for an iPhone photography walk at Cleveland’s Lake View Cemetery on Saturday, September 30, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. We’ll meet at the Wade Chapel, then visit several of Lake View’s most photogenic sites nearby. Along the way, I’ll share lots of tips on lighting, composition, and other aspects of iPhone photography.  You are welcome to bring your digital point-&-shoot or SLR camera and lenses to the photo walk, but the emphasis will be on techniques and tips for landscape and nature photography using an iPhone or equivalent smartphone.

More than 108,000 people are buried at Lake View Cemetery, which was founded in 1869 and modeled after the great garden cemeteries of Victorian England and France. President James A. Garfield and his wife, Lucretia, rest here in a 180-foot tall Berea sandstone memorial built on a hilltop with a spectacular view of downtown Cleveland. Nearby, a 65-foot, 358,000-pound obelisk, the largest piece of granite ever quarried in North America, towers over the family burial site of John D. Rockefeller, considered by many to be the wealthiest man in the world.

The combination of distinctive architecture, scores of unique statues and markers, many flowering shrubs and stately trees – including four that were alive in 1796, when Moses Cleaveland founded the city of Cleveland – makes Lake View a great place for landscape photography. The miles of roads in the cemetery provide easy driving and walking access to all the burial structures, and Lake View is a tranquil, peaceful place that is rarely crowded with visitors.
