iPhone Photography Workshop

We will use collected and found objects to take creative still life and table-top photographs in my studio, examples of which can be seen in the gallery below.

What the workshop will cover:

  • the limitations of phone photography and how to overcome them
  • some basic rules for composition and framing
  • a demonstration of techniques
  • a practical hands-on session for you to set up and take your own photographs
  • simple edits on your phone that will enhance your photos after taking them
  • effects and filters that can transform your photos
  • hints, tips and advice to improve your photography.

Included in the price:

  • a small mounted print of one of your photos taken during the workshop to take home and frame
  • a handout summarising the main points covered – this will be available to take away
  • any equipment and props needed as part of the workshop
  • refreshments!

Not covered in the price:

  • any costs incurred using mobile data during the workshop
  • the cost of any phone apps – see below.

What you’ll need to bring with you:

Your mobile phone with enough charge to last the length of the workshop. Your phone needs to be pre-loaded with the following apps:

  • Snapseed (free to download) – used for editing photos on your device
  • Hipstamatic Classic (£2.49) – a photo app which allows pre-visualised styles to be applied to the image.

Android devices – Please note that I use an iPhone and so am not familiar with Android devices and will not be able to assist with any troubleshooting that may be needed. If you are a competant Android phone user then this iPhone photography workshop will still be of benefit as many of the photographic principles are the same. An iPhone is available to borrow for the practical elements of the workshop if required, allowing you to try out the Hipstamatic app, which is only available for the iPhone.

About Richard

I bought my first iPhone way back in 2014 after attending a talk by a mobile phone photographer. I was so blown away by the images that she was producing that I went out the very next day and bought a pre-owned iPhone 4S to use solely as a camera. And I’ve been using my iPhone to take pictures ever since. It’s the camera always in my pocket, whether I’m out walking the dog or just need a quick shot of something that catches my eye. I also use it as a deliberate choice for images where I want a certain look or aesthetic from a particular app. Digital photography can be too precise sometimes, the iPhone can add something extra that can lift the image beyond the ordinary.
