Gone are the days of blurry, pixelated phone shots. Smartphones are giving conventional cameras a run for their money nowadays; and itís all right there in your pocket.
This course teaches you how to get the most out of your smartphone camera and the numerous photography apps on the market. Learn to take great shots using techniques that make your subject stand out. Photography principles such as lighting, composition and editing will also be covered.
Participants are required to bring a smartphone equipped with camera functions.
Each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. There will be a substantial amount of walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.
Your experience doesnít stop once the class ends - you can also join the Smartphone Photography Facebook Group to exchange photography tips with other members, ask questions and receive constructive criticism on photos.
See the class and photography instructor Christine in action here on Channel 7's The Great South East.
