The quality of smartphone cameras is improving rapidly. Their capabilities extend far beyond what most people seem to use them for… taking selfies. In many situations, they work quite well as stand-ins for SLR cameras. It therefore is no longer necessary to drag around a big camera because you’re afraid of missing that great picture opportunity. A good quality smartphone camera can work almost as well.

This is a class for those truly interested in producing quality images with their smartphone cameras. That means moving away from the Auto Mode, where control of the camera by you is almost nonexistent, to the Manual or Shutter Priority Modes. The result will be that you the photographer now have almost ultimate control over how your images will turn out. And they no doubt will be much improved. Please note: The taking of selfies will not be covered in this class.

All the information necessary for taking great smartphone pictures will be addressed. Topics to be covered include:

  • What to look for when buying a new or used smartphone
  • Finding and installing the best smartphone camera apps
  • Understanding basic photography theory
  • Identifying and setting the camera controls
  • Useful accessories for your smartphone camera
  • Suggestions for handholding your camera
  • Specific steps to follow when taking the picture
  • Downloading your pictures to your computer
