CANCELED: Intro to iPhone Photography and Instagram

, Photographer


The iPhone and Instagram together allow you to take beautiful photos that can move beyond your basic snapshot into a more refined image. In this class, we'll focus on how to take photos on the iPhone that are deliberate and visually compelling, and how to then use Instagram to create the best possible image. (This is an introduction class; click here for the advanced class.)

What You'll Take Away From The Class:

  1. How to use the iPhone camera, including HDR
  2. Basic editing with third party iPhone apps
  3. How to decide what to shoot, and what images make the best Instagram photos
  4. Uploading photos to Instagram
  5. Choosing the best filters, creating titles, using hashtags
  6. How to navigate the community and the essentials of good Instagram etiquette
  7. Information about photowalks with other Instagram members
  8. How to build a following
 We will also have a photowalk (where exactly is TBD, but it will be great!) for the second half of the class.
UPDATE: THIS CLASS IS CANCELED. You just need an iPhone and an Instagram account.

Through a 365 Days self-portrait project, I learned how to use my camera and how to photograph other people, and I became passionate about photography and confident with the idea that I am an artist. I would love to be able to share that with others. I have been working for three years on a project called The Sleepwalker, which involves self-portraits of myself and portraits of my father who has Alzheimer's disease. Self-portraiture is arguably the most important part of my photography as a whole. My fine art work -- primarily environmental portraiture and landscape -- uses film and digital photographs as well as Instagram, where I have over 165,000 followers. I lived in San Francisco for nearly 4 years, in that time doing graduate work in photography at San Francisco Art Institute. I was featured in a short documentary as a trendsetting artist in San Francisco. I now live and work in Brooklyn.
