What is the best camera??? The one you have with you! Although DSLR cameras are powerful creative tools, your iPhone is a constant companion with its “always ready” camera to help you express yourself and capture the world in creative ways.

This workshop will have you using your iPhone to create great portraits, beautiful landscapes, and raise the quality level from snapshots to wonderful, creative travel images.

Rick provides techniques for maximizing the iPhone camera features, developing your eye for composition and light, and how to process your images to take them from “meh” to magnificent. You will begin to develop your own style and creative voice.

Each course session will include discussions and examples of new material, followed by assignments for hands-on practice. Lighten your hearts and take your iPhone photography further than you imagined possible.

During this 6-session adventure, Rick Allred will guide you to discover how YOU see the world in a unique way.

Rick creates a fun atmosphere for learning the technical side of the iPhone and combines it with light-hearted expression. By the workshop’s end, you will be confidently using your iPhone to capture images and express your world in new ways!
