Intro to Smartphone Photography @ Atelier

Downtown Photowalk.jpg

If you are wondering how to get crisp, professional quality photos from your smartphone, this workshop is for you! Local professional photographer Grant Kaye guides participants through the lens of a smartphone by sharing his tips on setting up your shot, making your photographs with your phone’s native camera app, and then editing and sharing them.

Participants will meet at Atelier to learn the basics of Smartphone photography, and then head out on a photo walk through downtown Truckee working from a suggested shot list. Once the shots are captured, we will reconvene at Atelier and Grant will demonstrate the basics of editing photos on your phones.

This class has a minimum sign-up of five (5) participants to run. In the event the class is cancelled, all participants will be notified 24 hours in advance. Please read our cancellation policy.

Different types of phones offer different features, and as such Grant will do the best he can to demonstrate features and techniques available for all participants based on their model and type of phone but can’t guarantee that everyone will have access to the same features.
