Smartphone Photography - how to take great pictures with your phone

Course Content

If you have ever wanted guidance through the massive array of choices available in the universe of camera-phone use? Yes? Then now is your chance!
This course will help you improve your technique and take more effective shots with an eye on composition.
We will be looking at how to make the most of exposure, shooting in low light, using differential focus and exploring Burst and HDR modes.
We?ll also consider additional attachments for close-up and macro, and you will be given guidance in selecting the most suitable camera-phone applications for both straightforward and experimental special effects.
This is a chance to shoot, share and discuss your images with other enthusiasts.
