★ Create your own postcard-perfect memories of SF ★
Create and collect your own postcard-perfect photos and memories of San Francisco!
San Francisco is one of the most photogenic cities in the world, but where exactly should you go and when to get the best shots? Even If you don’t photograph, use this app as a visual travel guide to enjoy the best views and collect them in your memory.
Award-winning travel photographer Lee Foster has selected more than 500 of his photos for his 100 top views in The City, from vistas to iconic details. He shows you how to duplicate them and capture a subject with nuanced approaches. Learn precisely where to aim our camera, what time of day and year offers the best light, and why the particular view is significant.
Use the handy maps to find a cluster of photo opportunities in one area. See the map distance from your current position to the desired subject. If you’re just getting started, take a look at the “10 Top Pix.” Beyond that, you’ll find photo suggestions for time of day (Dawn-AM), type of subject (People), techniques (Low Light), and various lenses (Wide Angle). All the photos are assigned to a neighborhood (perhaps North Beach) in San Francisco or to the iconic-views-beyond-The-City category (Outside SF).
If you get intrigued with a subject, a further website reference with additional information is provided. If there is any access cost to make the photo, that is noted, along with a phone number and hours open, when relevant.
