Join award-winning Colorado-based fine art photographer, Charles Needle, for Part 2 of his “Creative Smartphone Photography” webinar. In this class, Charles will take a deeper dive and discuss key shooting and editing apps he didn’t have time to discuss in the first class.
In a series of “live” demonstrations with his phone mirrored on his computer screen, Charles will discuss and demonstrate four specific shooting apps:
• Camera+ 2 (to enhance your mobile macro photography)
• Average Cam Pro (to create beautiful multiple-exposure painterly images)
• Slow Shutter Cam (to create long exposures)
• DMD Panorama (to create 360-degree panoramic photos)
Then he will discuss and demonstrate these four editing apps, and more, if time permits:
• Distressed FX Plus (a new and improved, updated version of Distressed FX)
• Artista Impresso (to transform your images into jaw-dropping paintings)
• Color Thief (to blend colors from one photo with another)
• Image Blender (to mix and combine two or more images)
As in the previous class, you’ll come away from this jam-packed 2-hour session with new knowledge that will empower you to make images you never imagined possible with your smartphone.
Note: This webinar is primarily geared toward iPhone users; however, you can certainly participate if you own an Android phone. (Many of the apps Charles will discuss and demonstrate are only available for iOS devices; however, you can often find an equivalent in the Google Play Store, and Charles will mention the names of these apps whenever possible.)
Also note: This course is not designed as an introductory class to Smartphones. We have introductory classes that we have run previously that you can find here. Also, this class is “Part 2”. You can purchase and download Part 1 here!
