)-- Your iPhone is more than just a snapshot device — it is a powerful creative tool that fits right in the palm of your hand. This spring semester at the University of California at Riverside Extension, students will learn to maximize the photographic potential of their smart device in a new class taught by photographer Jesús Manuel Mena Garza titled, iPhone and iPad Photography Workshop. The course runs from Jan. 21 through Feb. 4, 2012.
Why stop with smart phones? Photographers can easily use an iPad or similar device during this workshop. The course participants will learn how to master a workflow that takes them from initial image capture to final artistic photograph. Students should have access to an iPhone, iPad or similar device to maximize their class experience.
Today, an iPhone or iPad allow you to focus on fun and creativity. Today’s digital cameras provide overwhelming choices, but an iPhone saves photographers from being slowed down with complex technology. Garza said, “There seems to be a new wild or sublime application (app) coming out for the iPhone every week.”
In this new workshop, students will build a personal photography app suite; choose applications that meet their unique needs. Beginning to advanced photographers will explore their camera’s full potential; editing, storing and delivering their images via the Cloud. Cloud-based applications like Adobe’s Photoshop Express (free) and Carousel (fee based) will be explored during this course. Students can share their work across multiple platforms including; iPhone, iPad or a traditional computer.
These new apps allow photographers to do more than they could have imagined even a decade ago. Today, you can pull a device from your shirt pocket and quickly share your vision on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, blogs and other web services. The iPhone ensures a level of immediacy previously unimaginable.
In this workshop, photography students will also learn about the latest equipment and burgeoning opportunities. Students will access events and advice available to the growing camera phone community, ranging from film festivals to news organizations. The process of publishing a digital portfolio or a moblog will be made transparent.
Garza adds, “The synergy created by the intersection of the iPhone and the Cloud is powerful. Class participants will learn how they too can present their photos to the public, family and friends. My new iPhone and iPad Photography Workshop is an exciting way to explore the nascent Cloud and smartphone culture.” Contact the University of California at Riverside Extension for more information and to register for the workshop.
