Smartphones have become our everyday companions, relied upon more and more for capturing and sharing moments in our lives through photography. In the ongoing mobile imaging revolution, sensors, lenses, and technology are getting steadily more sophisticated, and myriad new creative apps have put smartphones on the cutting-edge of photography today. Our new two-day workshop focuses on the technical aspects of how to get the best images from our smartphones while also delving into the creative side of smartphone photography. Learn about exposure, composition, artistic vision, creative apps, and storytelling during talks and edit-and-critique sessions. With your smartphone in hand, go on photo shoots into Manhattan to photograph street life amid well-loved landmarks from Times Square and the Highline to Central Park.
This workshop is led by National Geographic photographer and professional instructor, Ed Kashi (VII), and is designed for amateurs who seek to effectively use and share mobile imagery and are interested in exploring the creative side of smartphone photography. All participants must bring a mobile device with a camera such as an iPhone or Android smartphone. The workshop is limited to 25 participants.
