Hello and thank you for your interest in our Introductory workshop on iPhone Camera and Creative Imagery. These events are intended to be fun, interactive, and, with a little help, enlightening for you and your workshop mates. We’ll be spending time in the studio and on location. So bring your walking shoes (for yourself) and excitement to share with all.

~Davis and Julie


Goals of the workshop:

  • Provide you with a basic understanding of the iPhone camera and begin to take exceptional images
  • Learn how to tap into your creative talents and apply them to your photography
  • Provide a working understanding of the iPhone’s camera.
  • Become familiar with the apps.
  • Leave with an understanding of basic photography concepts that include:

                  Why are some pictures more interesting than others?

                  What is selective focus and how do I employ it in my work?

                   How to begin to “see” and turn that vision into beautiful images.

                   The “Rule of Thirds” is, well, a rule. Shouldn’t it be broken? Well, yes and no.

  • How to work with individuals and groups to create dynamic images.
  • Never ask people to “smile”, if you want a natural look. Why do forced smiles looked, “forced”?
  • What is “backlight” and how does it apply to iPhone photography?
