Photography Classes


Mobile Phone Photography Workshop
Thursday, August 10
6:00 – 8:30
The Dixie

Not long ago a camera was a camera, an audio recorder was an audio recorder, and a phone was a phone. That has changed! “Convergence” is all around us. 
The quality and capabilities of mobile phone cameras continues to improve at an amazing rate. Once a photograph has been taken, image files may be enhanced in a variety of ways. But as amazing as mobile phone cameras are becoming, they are still simply an extension of the ones holding them. 
Cameras don’t make photographs, people do.  
Jim Veneman will host this class and focus on using this amazing device to make compelling, storytelling images beyond "selfies."
