Smartphone Photography (four-session workshop)

The best camera is the one you have with you – and if you’re like me you always have your phone with you! Learn how you can use your iPhone or Android smartphone to take better photos and become a better photographer. In this workshop, you will learn to take control of your phone’s camera to adjust exposure and focus. You will also learn editing techniques to help your photos look their best. We’ll discuss backing up and organizing your photos as well as other technical aspects of using your phone. And since phone photography is, well, photography, we’ll also talk about lighting, composition, color, and other elements that can turn a good photo into a great one!
