If you have a smartphone, then you have the potential to make great photographs.  But how do you turn your creative vision into reality? In this workshop you will use exciting, new and inexpensive photo apps to discover the potential of your smartphone camera. Led by veteran photographer and educator Leland Foerster, the up-beat three-hour workshop combines a practical introduction to techniques of smartphone photography with a hands-on ramble around the Ocean Beach Pier and the funky shops near the waterfront. After the photography session, the group will reconvene for a lighthearted class critique of images projected on screen.
On Monday, April 22nd participants will receive an email with more information and recommendations for apps to install on theirs phone before the workshop. Register for this unique opportunity today, as space is limited to only 25 students!
Register online or call 619.238.7559 x235. For more information email
