Learn to use your smartphone to create high-quality photographs and digital paintings you can use to tell your story in social media and print publications, exhibit and sell as fine artwork, and enhance your creative experience in your everyday life. A few simple, inexpensive apps will free you from heavy digital equipment and desktop photo editing, and open a path to creative self-expression anytime and anywhere you have a few minutes to spare.
Bring an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (version 4 or higher) or a late-model Android smartphone and charging cord. Participants must also have their own iTunes/Google Play account and know how to use it to download three free apps for the workshop.
Participants are welcome to attend the Friday, June 5th evening talk “Introduction to the Joy of Mobile Photography” from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Meri Walker, aka iPhoneArtGirl, is a veteran photographer and printmaker who makes museum-quality artwork using only her iPhone and iPad mobile devices. Hailing from Talent, Oregon, Meri conducts mobile photography trainings nationwide. Learn more about her work and view her portfolio at her website.
