Smartphone Workshops

We separate the workshops into an iPhone or Android workshop. This will be a great learning experience for your specific type of phone. Once you have learned the basics of your camera, then you can join our style workshops and expeditions. A professional photographer and professional photo lab printer instructs all workshops.  The recommend apps have tested both the image quality and printing of your photographs.

Location of workshops:

They show the main location on the workshop page.

I will send you the meeting place before the workshop. We will photograph interesting areas within the local area. The work shops on in the field hands on.

"Where the Fun Begins with your Smartphone Camera" (2 Hours) $99.00

Photo taken with:

An ancient iPad Mini with only a 5 megapixel camera. You don’t need the newest smartphone to accomplish great photographs. Most current phones today have 12-16 megapixel cameras.

We will take you through the basic AUTO operations of YOUR standard camera on your phone, adding no apps. We will introduce composition to improve your artistic side and introduce controlling your lighting. Learn the different techniques for holding your camera phone properly. This will improve your image quality.
During the outdoor adventure workshop, you will do some light walking while taking photographs using the new knowledge of your phone. 

Bonus:

  • After the workshop, send us 2 images for our professional photographer to critique, to see how you are applying your newfound knowledge!
  • Also, a coupon for $5.00 to apply to any printed item on our web-site.

Before photo:

Taken from an observation point over Elephant Butte Lake, New Mexico. Just getting out of the truck and snapping the photo. Like most of the photos taken while travelling.

After photo: 
Applying some simple composition techniques learned in the class. And walking within in a 50 ft area, we transformed a snapshot into a pleasant and beautiful photograph of the lake.

"Beyond Auto Mode Smartphone Photography": (4 Hours) $175.00 per person

This Beyond Auto Mode workshop will take you from the auto mode standard camera to gaining control over focusing, lighting, color control, and movement of your photograph, by installing some apps and using the new tools within the app. You will go from point and shoot to composing your photographs just like you would with a DSLR camera. This will be great for the person who used the 35mm SLR and/or when you don’t have your heavy DSLR camera with you. The image quality of smartphones is gaining in quality and for images you’re looking at enlarging to 12×18 and sometimes larger.
You learn how to save your images without losing the original quality. Many apps and cloud services degraded your image forever. Don’t let this happen to your images. Learn file management and storage to preserve your original photographs.

Bonus:


  • After the workshop, send us 5 images for our professional photographer to critique, to see how you are applying your newfound knowledge!

  • Also, a coupon for $5.00 to apply to any printed item on our web-site.
