About This Class

ab588cf3

Shooting on the phone camera really pushes you to improve and develop your photographer’s skills, as you can not fall back on expensive lenses or other professional photography equipment. The great thing is, it is possible to get better with the same phone camera which you have now!

In this class I will cover a few practical tips, a few creative ones, like adding shadows, shooting backlit or incorporating action into your shots. And I will also talk about editing and show you my editing process. Although some technical points are specific for the iPhone, the creative advice and editing sections are relevant to any other phone camera too!

So, lets take your mobile photography to the next level!

These videos were extremely helpful. I really appreciated how everything was explained in a way anybody who is not a connoisseur can understand and improve in this beautiful art. I, myself, have a DSLR and I'm starting to learn photography hoping one day I can do it professionally, but it is not everyday you are out and about with your camera and all, so it's really nice to learn how to use your phone to take such amazing shots.
I love the tips. It was a great series of videos that inspired me. :)
Wonderful class, with a lot of great visuals, great teacher also!
