Learn how to shoot great photos with your smartphone !!!
Hello!!! This will be a fun workshop on learning how to use your cell phone camera to get the best possible photos any time and in any place. (I need at least 3 people to sign up for this workshop, if not I will postpone it to another day.) This workshop has been requested by many members who don't own a DSLR or mirrorless camera and just want to take better photos with their smartphone when they go on vacation. You only need to bring your smartphone to learn how to take great photos with it. The cost for this workshop is 2000 Yen per person to be paid at the beginning of the workshop. Everyone will receive a handout (9 pages) with the information that I am teaching and a FREE lens cleaning cloth for your camera and lens. After the explanations we will go out and test out what I've just taught you, you can also ask me questions and I will help everyone with all the information you need. Once we shoot for about half an hour for fun I will give you all a challenge of something specific to shoot. Everyone will go around and practice alone and shoot what the challenge goal is. After that's finished we will all look at the photos together and choose the best photo. The winning photo's shooter will win a set of 3 lenses to be used on a smartphone to get different views for photos. ( I need at least 3 people to attend to be able to run this contest.) So the schedule will be as such: 3:00 pm - Meet up and do introductions 3:30 pm- Go out of the station and walk to a nearby location, I will teach you the information in the handout 4:30 pm - Everyone will go out together and start shooting using what they've learned (I will be with you to answer questions) 5:00 pm- I will tell you what the challenge is for the day and everyone will go out alone and shoot photos for the challenge 5:30 pm- We will all come together and take a look at the photos and choose a winner 6:00 pm- The winner will receive the 16 GB USB memory key with the prizes on it. This should be a fun and very informative workshop + contest in one! This workshop will be limited to 7 maximum attendees so sign up early, I only want 7 people so I can help everyone and have time to answer everyone's questions. Feel free to ask me any questions! Thank you!

    What we're about

    Hello Everyone !!!

    This is a group for novice and intermediate photographers to meet up and learn how to shoot better photos. There will be both outdoors and indoors workshops organized. Lessons on how to "see" better and compose better images using your own judgement as well as camera settings will be taught. Bring your imagination, camera and an open mind!

    All the workshops and photo walks are in English, so feel free to practice your English with the other members. There is a good mix of Japanese speakers and English speakers at every event so you can talk and share information together!

    For the LOVE of PHOTOGRAPHY !!!
