Smartphone Photography: Story-Telling at the National Museum of American History
This Safari is specially designed for clients wishing to improve their photojournalism skills with their Smartphones —taking pictures of people in ways that tell a story
This safari is especially designed for smartphone users!
Her face says it all: “You can make me sit in a segregated part of this train, but you can’t break my spirit.” Her face is proud, resolute, her chin is held high, her lips are tight, her hands firmly clasped in her lap, as if to say: “Someday, one day, we will be able to sit anywhere we want. I might not see it in my lifetime, but I know it will happen….”
She is a life-sized figure in the “America on the Move” exhibit at the Museum, and her face makes a GREAT story-telling image that you can learn to capture with your camera.
You’ll learn about composition, white balance and how to cope with unique lighting situations without flash. How do you use your Smartphone to capture exhibits, paintings, sculptures, dioramas and other works of art with the existing low light? We’ll show you how to tell stories and make an impact.
Here are examples of images you can take on this safari:
