What you'll learn in this photography class:

Join smartphone expert Elody Crimi for an exciting afternoon at the American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery to learn how to take great photos with your Smartphone camera. Topics include: an introduction to the basic (and advanced) functions of your phone; how to use little know features to drastically improve your photography; an overview of the most important rules of composition and how/why they affect your photos (with plenty of examples); a demonstration of various applications you can use to help process and edit your photos (right from your phone); a demonstration/walk-through of all the various peripherals (lens, lights, etc.) that are available for your phone.

Prerequisite: Workshop is for all levels.

Here is what one safarian had to say about the safari:

If you use your phone for photography, this is the course for you. As a long-time SLR photographer, I have found myself using my iPhone more and more to take photos. I had NO idea of everything this phone camera was capable of to take outstanding photos. This course and the teacher were awesome. Elody Crimi was knowledgeable, well prepared and organized. And it was such fun!!! Highly recommended for everyone who owns a phone and wants to improve their photo-taking expertise. Washington Photo Safari courses are the best and this one certainly did not disappoint.  Nancy B., Rockville, MD
