Discover how to turn your ordinary snapshots into extraordinary photographs using the power of the device that is always with you. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to expertly capture images, edit, and create photographs and artful results with your iPhone. Gain inspiration and find your creative vision by discovering your style and expanding your technical knowledge in the emerging field of iPhoneography.

In this course, you will learn how to take professional-quality photographs and perform basic and advanced photo editing with your iOS device. We will start by using the built-in photo app to edit and enhance iPhone photos, and we will discuss tips for optimizing the features and working around the limitations of the native (built-in) camera. We will then see demonstrations and learn the details of several third-party editing and creative applications as well as a variety of helpful accessories for enhancing and embellishing iPhoneography images. Finally, we will review best practices for saving, organizing, sharing, and printing your images. By the end of this workshop, you will have answers to your questions about the ins and outs of iPhoneography.

This workshop is for students of all levels.

An iPhone 5 or newer is required for the course. A list of apps from the Apple App Store to download to your device will be sent to registered students before the course begins. (Students can expect to spend an additional $10–$20 on these apps.) Although Android users are welcome, apps may be formatted differently than projected demonstrations, and some apps may not be available in the Google Play store. iPad users are also welcome (most apps are universally compatible with the iPhone and iPad), but some apps may be available only for the iPhone.

Due to its short format, this workshop may not be taken for Credit or a Letter Grade.
