Creative iPhone Photography Boot Camp

Starts February 8

1 session: Saturday, February 8, 9am-5pm

In this beginning-level workshop you’ll learn how to make amazing photos with nothing more than your iPhone.

We’ll discuss photography basics, the specific aesthetics of mobile photography, and how to make images that will attract attention on social media. We’ll concentrate on composition and light to help you become a better photographer, and then learn how to use different apps to improve your images in editing. There will be some in-class shooting and editing demonstrations and plenty of examples from which to learn.

No previous photography experience required, but you’ll need an iPhone for shooting, editing, and sharing.

Before class, please download the apps Snapseed (free), TouchRetouch ($1.99), and VSCO (free), and bring a notebook and phone charger.

Tuition: $175 regular/$130 member/$100 low-income

EricMueller_CropEric Mueller is an artist, photographer, and teacher. Known for his graphic style and strength in composition, his photographs have been exhibited in dozens of group shows, including at the Plains Art Museum, the Devos Art Museum, the Midwest Center for Photography, Head On Photo Festival, the Southeast Center for Photography, and the Columbus Museum of Art. He has been recognized with awards by American Photography, The Photo Review, the iPhone Photography Awards, and the Mobile Photography Awards. He has over 40,000 followers on Instagram.

In May of 2020, Mueller’s first photography book, Family Resemblance, will be published by Daylight Books. The project—which documents and celebrates people who are genetically related and bear a strong resemblance to each other—was inspired by seeing a photograph of his birth mother for the first time.
