iPhonography Summer Camp

Let’s have fun making photos with your iPhone! Natasha will teach you the skills you need to turn the camera that’s always with you into a powerful photography tool. Practice seeing versus looking on. Campers will enjoy a scavenger hunt inside and outside their home. We will photograph family members, pets, city streets, still life and selfies. We will expand on our imagination, looking at color, contrast and composition.
Natasha will combine in-depth instruction with hands-on practice so that you can make your best photos. You will leave with new skills, insider tips, and photo editing techniques using Lightroom for mobile on the go and Photoshop on the iPad and other Apps. You’ll learn all the basics of mobile editing as well as plenty of tips for finding your own unique editing style. Some of the things you can expect to learn are:
Specifically, you’ll learn how to:
  • Work with a range of iPhone cameras (in Raw)
  • Working with manual settings Aperture and Shutter speed
  • Improving composition, color, and exposure
  • Making selective edits to emphasize important elements of your photo
  • Retouching and compositing techniques
  • Manage and edit your images with different Apps, develop your own personal look and feel
  • Share your images with family, and friends
