Lake View Cemetery

with DPA Instructor TBA



Situated at the top of Capitol Hill overlooking Seattle, Lake View Cemetery is a beautiful, tranquil, pristine piece of land that honors Seattle's beloved citizens and the history of the city.  Purchsed in 1872 and renamed to Lake View in 1890, the cemetery is a vital part of the neighborhood.  Join your Digital Photo Academy instructor Erin Rhees to photograph the beauty, history, and prestige of Lake View Cemetery.

Among Lake View Cemetery's honored residents is martial artist Bruce Lee, who died at the age of 32 from a cerebral edema.  Photograph his grave and pay tribute to his legacy on this photo walk.  You will also photograph beautiful statues slowly degrading in the Seattle weather and graves dating back to the 1800s.


Photographing with a professional photographer and in a group will give you the opportunity to ask questions and try out different techniques with your classmates.  Learn how to adjust your camera or choose the proper lens to shoot landscapes, or wide-angles, and close-ups, or zoom or macro, so that you can show the cemetery as a whole or the small details of a particualr grave.  Alter your depth of field to bring text into focus while blurring a stone background and find new angles that you never would have even thought to try. 


We will meet at the entrance to Lake View Cemetery located at 1554 15th Ave. E, Seattle, WA 98112.  Please bring your DSLR or another type of digital camera that you use, a fully-charged battery, and the equipment that you can carry.  You should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
