How to take better photos using your smart phones and editing them on the go?

Hi all,

I always have people and friends ask me "how can I take better photos using my smart phone?"

I wanted to get together and do a little hands-on workshop on how to use your smartphones to take better photos.

Now, I use an iPhone, however, this event is open to all smart phones. You might not be able to get all the applications I show if you do not have an iPhone.


10:30AM Meet and mingle / Network.

10:45AM I will go over several applications I use and how I use them

11:30AM I will show you how to enhance your use of your phone to take photos.

12:00PM We will all go and practice on taking great photos.

I will have a list of "things to look for" - similar to a photo walk scavenger hunt. But you don't have to stick to that list!

What to bring?

Bring your smart phone! and warm cloths.

Where to park?

You can park at several parking garages, or on the street. Please allow yourself time to find parking. I will start on time.

I think this can be a fun way to meet and learn about this subject.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

    Does anyone know if there Is there free or validated parking anywhere?

    January 10, 2013

    • Tsafrir (Mike) M.

      You can find some street parking on weekends I think it is free, check signs. There is also a garage across from tech museum. See you there.

    Hi - due to the large demand I'm limiting this to 40 people - that way I can spend more time with people who have questions! If you registered and changed your mind please update your RSVP to "No" Thanks!

  • Tsafrir (Mike) M.
