It is so easy to take out your phone and grab that photo, but with a little knowledge and education, your photos can become not just “grabbers” but Keepers! You will learn about taking good selfies, group shots, and how to get good images in various situations–all with your phone. You can capture great landscapes , ocean shots, flowers, animals, fun selfies,  and make wonderful prints as well as sharing them online. We have been teaching photography for many years and have succinctly honed much of that knowledge into practical methods for the smart phones. It is a fun class and you will be happy with your phone photos.
