Phone It In Photowalk: Venice Beach

Date: January 27, 2018
Time: 2:45pm - 5:45pm
Cost: Free
Location: Venice, CA

How about something FUN to start 2018? I'm talking about a phone-only DSLR's allowed! If you've never tried it, it's always a blast and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the images you create.

Whether you’re an iPhone fanatic or an Android acolyte, practicing ‘serious’ photography with your smartphone is one of the best ways I know to exercise your creative muscles and train your Photographer’s Eye. Phone photography requires no technical decision making, so all you're left to consider is the image itself…. which is what really counts, right? The key is to be intentional in your approach.

So let's ditch the DSLR's for the day and leave the mirrorless bodies behind. Today, it's all about shooting with our phone cameras and practicing Seeing.

I'll share some of my favorite phone 'tips and tricks' during the event. If you have apps, techniques or other knowledge related to phone photography that you're fond of, please share with the group in the messages below.

Our Plan
After leaving the pier area, we’ll start by walking through the Venice canals and then make our way back to the beach and down the boardwalk past Muscle Beach and all the shops, arts & crafts stands, basketball courts, skatepark, and public art walls. After the walk, those of us that are inclined can grab a bite together in the area. It's about 1.2 miles one way. Afterwards, you can walk back, catch an Uber/Lyft or team up another group member and park one vehicle near our destination

What to bring
Your phone (or other point & shoot) camera and comfortable shoes.
