The best camera is the one you have with you.
This may sound like heresy, but it is true. Most of us are rarely without our phone and the camera in today’s iPhone is an excellent camera. Learning to use the camera and its features to its full capability may even make it your camera of choice.
Does it do everything that an expensive Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) or Mirrorless camera does? No, but it also does things that you cannot do with these cameras. It does panoramic images easier than most cameras, is a great low light camera, some models come with three different lenses, the image file is large enough to make a print up to 16×20 inches in size, and you can create images that look like tintypes or Kodachrome slides.
In this class Tillman Crane will introduce how the iPhone camera functions, how to capture, edit, post and print your images. There will be handouts, in-class demonstrations, and assignments to help you understand the concepts presented in class. Each class will include lecture time and time to share some of your images and edit them together.
What is going on between your ears is more important that what is in your hands. You almost always have your iPhone with you. This class will help you put the two together.
