Inside every iPhone is one of the most inspiring, capable and fun imaging systems in all of photography. More than just a snapshot device, the iPhone is a powerful creative tool for creating art that fits right in the palm of our hand. There is now a camera, darkroom and, as Jerry Uelsmann would say, Visual Research Laboratory all in our shirt pocket!
The in-phone possibilities are endless. The ability to shoot and process our images in the field, learning what works to make the captures match the intended vision. When it comes to printing iPhone images, participants are amazed with the color, depth and texture possible in prints. Dan Burkholder has a long history of looking over the photographic horizon to see, explore and teach the next great thing in imaging. This is an opportunity for participants to discover the power, fun and stunning output that’s possible from your iPhone.
Throughout the week students are in the classroom and out in the field exploring new techniques and digital workflow specific to iPhone photography. Topics cover which software preserves the camera’s resolution and which trash hard-earned pixels, true HDR imaging, even practice panorama capture with your iPhone combining up to 50 stitched images. Participants build a personal “app suite” that gives all the capture and processing power needed on the iPhone. Students take this newfound knowledge back to the lab and focus on printing iPhone images on beautiful Museo paper.
Come well rested, with a notebook in one hand, iPhone in the other, and a lot of enthusiasm. It’s time to stop wondering what is possible with an iPhone and time to start making stunning photographs and prints!
Participants should bring their own iPhone 5 or 4s with the latest software installed and have a basic working knowledge of their iPhone and Photoshop.
