iPhone photography workshop: How to take beautiful photos on your iPhone

practical iPhone photography tuition


A half-day workshop of practical tuition: Learn how to use the camera on your iPhone to take beautiful photographs.

There will be a maximum of two participants per workshop which means that you get the most out of the workshop and it can be tailored to specific areas of interest to you wherever possible.

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 above and on my website.

What the workshop will cover:

• several hands-on sessions for you to set up and take your own photographs
• demonstrations of techniques
• some basic rules for composition and framing
• 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.

Important: What you’ll need to bring with you:

Your iPhone with enough charge to last the length of the workshop. To get the most out 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 that allows pre-visualised styles to be applied to the image.

Please note: Android devices – I use an iPhone and so am not familiar with Android devices. If you are a competent Android phone user then this iPhone photography workshop may still be of benefit as many of the photographic principles are the same. However, we will be using the Hipstamatic app for taking most of the images on the workshop and this is only available for the iPhone. An iPhone is available to borrow for the practical elements of the workshop if required, allowing you to try out the Hipstamatic app.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's 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!
