The best camera is the one you have with you.

This may sound like heresy, but it’s true! Most of us are rarely without our phone and the camera in today’s iPhone turns out to have excellent lens and support software. Learning to use the camera and its features to its full capability may even make it your camera of choice.

iPhone photo by Tillman Crane

Does it do everything that an expensive Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) or Mirrorless camera does? No, but it also does things that you cannot do with these cameras. It does panoramic images easier than most cameras, is a great low light camera, some models come with three different lenses, the image file is large enough to make a print up to 16x20inches in size, and you can create images that look like tintypes or Kodachrome slides.

This class will show you how the iPhone camera functions, and how to capture, edit, post, and print your images. There will be handouts, in-class demonstrations, and assignments to help you understand the concepts presented in class. Each class will include lecture time and time to share some of your images and edit them together. In our last class we will share a final project with the group, using what you’ve learned over our weeks together.

Class can be taken as a package or as individual classes ($55). Recordings will be available for all classes in case you miss one or just as a refresher.
