photography: iPhoneography

what we are doing

We will be practicing the art of street photography using our iPhone as the camera of choice. You are welcome to use an Android smartphone. We will practice techniques of shooting, including finding a location, good lighting and waiting for a moment to unfold in front of you.

what you will learn

You will learn how to better create photos that you can be proud to share online and even have printed and put up on your wall. Using a smart phone on the street is great for travel as well. A fun way to discover new cities or even rediscover Wellington all over again!

    Some of the other apps that I mentioned were:
    -Lo-Mob - film effects, lots of options to play here
    -ScratchCam - create an old scratched up effect for you photos
    -Snapseed - more filters
    -Filterstorm (not cheap, but like Photoshop with heaps of features)
    -Big Lens (create short depth of field, or out of focus backgrounds)
