If 2017 is your year to learn a new skill, we’ve got the perfect opportunity. Learn how to utilize your iPhone’s camera features to their maximum potential in this iPhoneography workshop with local professional photographer, Rana Salame.
Students will learn basic photography techniques like composition and lighting as well as how to use effects to enhance images. Participants will edit photos in the VSCO Cam app to make images more creative and visually appealing. Once skills have been covered, the group will hit the streets of Mass Ave to test out newly acquired techniques. A roundtable discussion will follow to study images and next steps to continue snapping like a pro.
Participants must download the VSCO Cam application before the workshop. Students should bring a fully-charged device as well as a power cord. It is recommended that students observe weather forecasts prior to class as a portion of the workshop will be spent outside.
Rana Salame is a crafty wonderwoman. She runs a successful photography business and a popular jewelry line. She describes herself as a "loving, caring, nurting, traveling, kitten-cuddling, toddler-toting, photographer woman." Check out more of her work at her website or follow her on Instagram.
