What is PhotoUno?

PhotoUno is a NYC based digital photography
school. It is a dream that was made possible through hard work and
dedication. Patricia Burmicky, the head instructor at PhotoUno, began
her photography career in Venezuela. However, life decided to transport
her and Francisco (her husband) to New York City. It was time for a
change and with the opportunity to continue her studies here; Patricia
was more than happy to accept the challenge. But how did all of this
lead to her teaching? Throughout her life Patricia found she had a knack
for teaching. She was able to make things simple and fun for anyone to
understand. It started with teaching her friend’s mother, then another,
then a friend’s friend, until she realized that people really enjoy the
simplicity and the enthusiasm in her way of teaching. With the support
of her husband, PhotoUno Photography School came to be. Since then we
are happy and proud to say that our photography school has expanded
considerably. We can only hope to continue to grow with the help and
support of our students.

I just got my first iPhone after being team Android ever since I got my first HTC smartphone circa 2010. I'm still getting used to doing things the “Apple way” and PhotoUno's “2-hour iPhone photography class” is an excellent way to accelerate the learning curve of learning to harvest the capabilities of the iPhone camera. We had Francisco (Lyons) as the instructor of the class. We had a small class (4 students) which probably made for a better experience before we all got my individual attention. The class seats up to 9 people. We started the class off with short introductions, then we got into the very basics of photography. Think ISO, shutter speed, aperture, the rule's of 3rd's etc. I already knew most of this, but this was a greater refresher and I felt it was taught at an adequate level for the uninitiated. We got into shooting actually objects and learning about the multiple settings and functions that the stock iPhone camera app makes available. The class is laser focus on the default camera app, and the instructor didn't make mention of any 3rd party apps at any point. Overall, I felt that it was well worth the money. Francisco was great and was excellent at breaking down somewhat complicated subjects to a beginner level. I felt a lot more comfortable using the camera after taking this class.

Material was what was needed to begin to work in a more advanced way with the iPhone camera. The teacher was clear and attentive.

Amazing! I am a very visual learner so I was a bit nervous about a virtual class, but Francisco provided many visuals with EXCELLENT descriptions to help us learn. Within just 5 classes, I went from not knowing anything about photography (aside from auto) to knowing how to take real images on manual settings. I HIGHLY recommend this class, and I will be back to take advanced classes soon. Thank you!
