Course Description:

Camera phones have opened up the formerly black art of photography to everyone. This course will help you take your phone photo skills to that next level and let you start creating that Wow! factor. This 2-day workshop builds on the previous workshop for those who want to explore further – or can be a stand-alone for those with more experience.

Day 1 RAW or JPEG: About half and half class and field. The benefits of RAW photos will be explained with a walkthrough of editing RAW photos. The 2nd half of the class will be in the field capturing in RAW. End of day review back in class.

Day 2 Creative editing/ Final Questions: Using some of the more fun tools in Snapseed and other mobile photography apps to add cool frames and borders and give photos of different looks. Morning instruction in class, then in the field taking pictures & editing. End of day review, display of photos, wrap-up and final questions.

All those who take both workshops, or the Next Steps workshop will receive a copy of my ebook The Ultimate (OK, No Not Really) Guide to Mobile Photography.
