Smart Phone, Smart Photos: Beginners (online)

Led by Elena Garcia-Juan

Photography is bound up in the history of technological innovations, from the invention of the Daguerreotype to the digital revolution. Each new technological breakthrough has shifted the way we see and represent the world photographically.

Through the theme 'The Sunny Season', students will practice basic principles of photography, composition and lighting that you can apply to your smartphone/tablet device.

Whether capturing a landscape, portrait or closeup, students will capture the most beautiful aspects of Spring, leading into a little photography competition.

Participants will be encouraged to take part in group discussions throughout the course. At its heart, mobile photography is about fun. The joy of having a camera available at those moments you want to keep, is what it’s all about.
