iPhoneography 101

  • 33 Washington St Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)



Who should take this class?

All iPhone owners, photo novices, and those who would rather not bring their heavy duty cameras out on a regular basis.  The best camera is the one you have with you.

What you will learn

This camera never leaves your side… lucky for you it's a pretty excellent camera.  The iPhone is like the swiss army knife of cameras, with an explosion of apps and filters, but it still has that unique quality entirely its own.  Like the Polaroid and Instamatic before it, the iPhone's camera has become a cultural touchstone, beloved by pros and hobbyists alike.

We’ll take you through a slideshow presentation of classic color snapshot photography over the past 50 years, with examples from William Eggleston, Stephen Shore and other luminaries of the once-marginalized medium. We'll discuss our favorite apps and how they work, as well as how to tweak the camera and options to get what you want.  Students will experiment and upload images to create an online group gallery, exploring the iPhone's inherent strengths.   

What to bring?

Just your iPhone.


No prior knowledge or experience is necessary.
