Two of the most often-used features of iPhones and iPads are the Camera and the Photos app. The smartphone’s camera is very sophisticated and can result in some very professional-looking photos. However, there are so many fun, yet powerful, camera options people don’t know about which offer a lot more options when taking pictures, and can improve the quality of photos exponentially. In this course, students will learn the art and science of taking great photos with the iPhone/iPad in the Camera app, and also include time-honored photography principles that can take photos to the next level. We will cover in detail how to share, store, transfer, organize, and edit these photos in the Photos app. We will learn about using HDR (High Dynamic Range), Time lapse, Panoramic mode, Burst mode, and filters, as well as explore fun photo apps for the camera. By the end of this class, students will have learned everything they ever wanted to know about how to unlock the potential of their camera and confidently organize and share their photos.
This class starts with the basics and covers everything from how to navigate and work with settings, organize our screen, locate hidden features, and use the camera. New iPhones are coming out, and the operating system (iOS) has updated, bringing many new features that even seasoned users need to know about. We will go over the latest changes and the glitches we may encounter using certain features or upgrading. We will also learn the essential apps to unleash the power of our devices, and make our lives easier. What are the best practices and settings we should know about? How can we make our devices so that they best serve our customized needs? This class covers all of that and more. Participants in this class are encouraged to bring their devices to class where we will have hands-on sessions exploring the latest and greatest tips, tricks, and apps for our mobile devices. Questions and answers are part of this workshop. (A limited enrollment class)
