learn how to take great photos on your smartphone

Back to school!

Yes, it is time to learn new skills, and what better way to do it than online in the comfort of your own home.

I am really excited to offer another series of 4 online mobile photography workshops in conjunction with the Gallery of Photography, Dublin, over 4 Wednesdays – starting on Wednesday, September 14th and running until October 5th.

The four workshops are structured so that before the start of the sessions you will be given the opportunity to send in a selection of your photographs for me to review and provide you with personalised feedback.

In the workshops, I will walk you through how to get the most from your smartphone camera. In a series of practical exercises he will heighten your visual awareness equipping you to create more dynamic and creative compositions in your photography.

Each week, you will have the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning in a series of tasks I will assign. I will give you guidelines – according to your own photographic style – of different types of photographs you can achieve. You will get personalised and individual feedback on the photographs you create. We will have a private Facebook group where we can share our photos and learn from each other.

By the end of the course you will have produced several photographs to be proud of.

You will learn how to use Snapseed (a free editing app) to fine tune your images and prepare them for sharing on social media. I will also share tips and tricks on how to get your photographs to stand out on Instagram.

There will be the opportunity to share your photographs with the like-minded photography enthusiasts in the workshop.

The workshops are for all levels of skill and experience.
