Discover how to turn your ordinary snapshots into extraordinary photographs using the power of the device that is always with you. Smartphones are the most important camera of our age, used for capturing everything from family events to business applications, and for making art and documenting current events. In this hands-on course, you will learn how to expertly capture images, edit, and create photographs with your iPhone. You will gain inspiration and find your creative vision by discovering your style and expanding your technical knowledge in the field of iPhoneography. 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 iPhone photography accessories as well as best practices for saving, organizing, sharing, and printing your images.

This course is for students of all levels. An iPhone 6s Plus or newer is required; iPhone software should be updated to iOS 14 or newer. Students can expect to spend $12 on apps; accessories are optional purchases.
