In this hands on workshop, students learn how to set up an inexpensive home studio and take high quality images using only their camera phone! This class is designed for people who want to get the most out of their camera phone, especially small businesses and creative entrepreneurs, who want to be able to share their work quickly, and in the best light. Even if you just want to improve your daily camera snaps there will be lots of basic tips and tricks for improving images covered. Learn the basic elements of photography and product photography, how to create a mobile home studio using daylight, helpful and inexpensive tools to improve image quality, how to edit photographs with apps, and we’ll also cover images as branding. No matter what the product is, a physical object or service, we’ll brainstorm ways to improve your images. This is a hands-on workshop where you will have a chance to practice and explore the techniques covered in class. Come prepared with questions, your product or work you made and want to photograph, and phone in hand.
Materials required: Please bring your smart phone and any items you'd like to photograph. The class is tailored to iPhone users, but android users are welcome to join! There will also be props for you to play and experiment with too.
