Tides Inn Maker Space

Maker Space: iPhone Photography

Led by artisan Jeff Cherry

This resort photography course will teach you the essential skills you need to become a digital photographer—with nothing more than an iPhone or similar smartphone. Once you know both the art and technical concepts that go into great photography, you will be able to capture amazing pictures with almost any device. Time and weather permitting, the class may explore the resort grounds to practice some of the learned principles.

The majority of this course will focus on the camera capabilities of the iPhone 6-8, touching on some of the new features in the latest iPhone. Please bring your own smartphone.
