We are all carrying around little storytelling machines in our pockets or purses. Our cameras can help us document both the everyday and the extraordinary and share it with others. In this two-class series, you’ll learn how to take the best photos possible on your smartphone. The instructor will discuss camera exposure and focus control to ensure your photos come out the way you want. We’ll also explore using natural light as well as composition tips to make your images stand out from the crowd on social media. You’ll learn about apps for editing, HDR imagery, time exposures and shooting panoramas.
Before the second class, you’ll have the opportunity to use what you’ve learned to take some pictures around your house and neighborhood and submit them for a supportive critique and group discussion. Submission instructions will be sent to you after the first class. We’ll end the second class with a virtual gallery exhibit of everyone’s assignments.
