Imagine spending a wonderful day wandering and snapping cool pictures. You’re excited to finally take a break to choose the ‘Instagram worthy’ ones, only to realize they all look like they were shot from a moving train. We’ve all been there, and we’re here to help.

WalkArlington is partnering with local artist, Jason Horowitz, to guide you on a smartphone photography walking tour through Crystal City and Pentagon City where you will learn tips and tricks to maximize your smartphone photography skills, while capturing the photogenic side of Arlington.

What You Can Expect to Learn

  • Information on style, composition, light, exposure and phone apps
  • Settings and features to maximize your smartphones capabilities
  • New shooting techniques and editing tips
  • Ways to capture cityscape and nature scenery

The walk will start at the Water Park in Crystal City & conclude in Pentagon City where you can swap pictures and stories with fellow participants and have any final questions answered.

The event is free for people of all ages and abilities. Registration for the event is required, so we know how many people to expect for the walk. Wear comfortable shoes, and don’t forget to bring a fully charged smartphone.
