In this seminar we will explore the iPhone, Android, and digital cameras for their creative potential. Assignments will be given that are specifically designed for smartphone cameras. Students will be encouraged to add camera apps to their phones. You may use the editing software already on your laptop computer, but instruction will be given on Photoshop and Photoshop Elements to enhance your images. (Photoshop Elements is less expensive and does almost everything that Photoshop does.) Participants will have the opportunity to make professional enlargements of their work on a pigmented ink jet printer. This class is designed for both the beginner as well as those who have a more advanced understanding of their cameras and photo editing.
Recommendations to bring to the workshop:
• Any digital camera (smartphone to DSLR)
• Camera apps for your smartphone
• A laptop computer with photo editing software
• A simple tripod
• A USB flash drive to show your work
