“The best camera is the one you have with you.” Chase Jarvis

In capable hands, a camera phone—the most widely used kind of camera in history—can produce compelling images. Phones are beginning to win market share away from the low end offerings of many digital camera manufacturers. Unfortunately, many of the pictures being taken with camera phones are poor in quality. This might partially be a result of lower quality cameras but it is also often a result of poor photographic technique.

In this workshop led by Chris Alvanas and team, we will show you how to make better pictures with your mobile device. We will discuss shooting techniques as well as the hardware and software available to assist you in making better images with your phone or tablet.

The class will begin with a short lecture where we will discuss some principles and needed information.

We will then spend time shooting and gathering images in a “hands on” environment on location. The day will close with a demonstration of some selected apps which can help better your mobile experience. We hope you can join us for an enjoyable day of image making, sharing, and discovery.

Saturday, May 10th from 9 to 2 PM in Wakefield

Tuition Fee is $125 

Maximum of twelve “mobile” photographers.

Class level is for anyone who loves to take pictures with their phone or tablet!

We believe feedback is important in order to grow as an artist. Since there is rarely enough time to appraise work immediately after a workshop, you are invited to have selected prints from your shoot evaluated on “Crit Night Get Together”on Tuesday, June 10, from 7 to whenever. We will offer constructive comments and real suggestions on how to make your pictures better. Refreshments will be served.  You can also post your best images to our Fine Art Student Work web pages.     Eric, Chris and Jan
