All workshops scheduled for 2020 have been cancelled due to COVID-19. Please check back in the early fall for the 2021 offerings.
Come learn how to use the powerful camera you already have in your pocket to its full potential. We will go over photographic principles like color, composition, and lighting, and how to make print worthy photographs from your phone. After making images, you will learn how to use various smartphone applications to edit photographs, and then print the images on professional papers. We will be exploring many areas of the beautiful Peters Valley campus, using tripods and clip on lenses to make creative compositions. You will leave with a better understanding of how photography works and how you can use your phone to make art.
