iPhone Photography with John Clark
Learn the art of capturing truly compelling photos with your iPhone. Now that everyone has a smartphone in their pocket, mobile photography has taken off in a way that, just 10 years ago, no one could have imagined. As so many photographers are learning, “the best camera is the one you have with you,” and with the quality of the cameras (not to mention the software) increasing in each new version of the iPhone, you always have a surprisingly good camera with you. Even so, do you struggle to get decent photos out of your iPhone, or would you simply like to learn how to take your “iPhonography” to the next level? If so, you’ll want to take this class, and learn the art of capturing great photos using your device. (Tip #1: Stop treating it like a point-and-shoot camera.) This class will include both technical instruction and outdoor experimentation, followed by an indoor critique session. As a bonus, the class will spend some time learning about the thousands of camera “apps” available for smart phones, from Instagram to the more techy HDR realm, and lots in between. Students should be sure to eat prior to class or bring a snack. Bring your iPhone, and/or an iPad, along with a corresponding charger.
