Explore techniques for composing beautiful, intentional photos
An iPhone Photography workshop with a Twist! What makes this workshop different is the focus on apps and techniques that are more “artistic” — allowing for brushwork, exploration of color palettes, abstraction, and other techniques.
Learn to use your existing suite of tools to improve composition, contrast, color, definition, and more; discover tools for black and white and color editing. Tap into some of the most exciting low-cost apps for exploring color, texture, abstraction, and other artistic elements of your photo — either as an end in itself or as a way to explore options as a painter.
What we’ll learn:
Your iPhone camera is different from a typical camera, with both pros and cons. We’ll start by introducing the camera itself, along with built-in tools for focusing, exposing, and capturing images.
Next, we’ll discuss techniques for using your iPhone camera to capture the best possible photos.
After taking a short break for a “mini photo-shoot,” we’ll come back and start working with your images. You’ll learn about the “hidden” tools built into your iPhone, and use them to crop, edit, and filter your images.
Finally, we’ll take some time to “tour” some of the capabilities of iColorama, one of the most powerful apps available for applying brushwork to your image or changing the color scheme, texture, size, and even shape of your images. Not only can you create a “painterly” image using your iphone, but you can also experiment with a variety of approaches to an image you may wish to paint.
