Get the best images from your smartphone

"I attended Colin’s last Phone workshop and discovered camera functions that I never knew existed. After going through some photography basics and practical tips my Facebook and Instagram photos have never looked better." Ken

As a professional photographer, I am supposed to see  Smart Phones as the ‘enemy’. But, as any photographer will tell you, the best camera you have is the one you have with you at the time. While digital SLRs may provide you with more flexibility and higher quality images, your Phone is invariably the camera you have on you ALL OF THE TIME!

So, and especially with the new Smart Phones having such great lenses, what can you do to get those professional-looking photos on your phone?

This workshop provides a full explanation and tricks of the trade when it comes to your Phone’s capabilities. It will also show you how to compose pictures like a pro, and the benefits of subtle editing.

Great session on how to take [and edit] photos taken on your iPhone - I certain learnt a lot and went straight home to play around with my photos - have gone from a hater of "live" to a lover of the feature - would recommend this workshop for anybody who wants to better understand the functionality of the camera and take better photos !
