    While there is nothing inherently wrong with snapshots, you can easily do so much better using a series of simple techniques introduced in this workshop. Creating more lasting images that capture the feeling you had when you took the picture is not hard. It just requires a little more thought before you press the shutter. This workshop will give you the tools and techniques to take your pictures to the next level, independent of your camera from smart phones to DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex). Technical details will be avoided. Instead, we will explore how to see and capture the best images that memorialize and document an event, trip, people and place.

    Additional Notes:

    Attendees are encouraged to submit anonymously-sourced (no embarrassment!) photos that may be used as examples in the “before and after” tricks and tips section. You can submit a few photos via email to krothmuller@gmail.com or bring them in on a thumb drive or camera card before class.  At the end of the class each attendee will receive a carry-around tip card.

    This is an all-levels two session, hands-on class that will give you an overview of how to go about making your own videos using an iPhone as the camera.

    Session 1 – You will be given an overview of the various aspects of video storytelling and production. We will then review how to capture quality images and sound using an iPhone as your camera. We will discuss the importance of lighting, sound, background, camera movement, etc.

    You will do some editing using the iMac computers available at BARN using short video clips provided to you. More specifically, you will create a video story by combining, trimming and re-arranging video clips using Apple’s iMovie.  And then learn about enhancing your video by adding digital music, still photos, voice over and titles. You will be asked to take some video clips at home over the next few days to bring into class on day 2.

    Session 2 – We will finish editing the video projects started at the first session and then go about taking the video clips you have on your own iPhone and editing them into a story. This will involve importing from your iPhone into the iMac computer and using iMovie to edit the clips into your story. You may then have an opportunity to share your video for others in the class.

    Documenting objects you have made and want to sell with great photos can be achieved with your smart phone, good lighting and attention to detail. In this workshop you will learn how to use natural light and LED lights with a light box for uniform illumination and bounce cards for highlights to light your object. You will learn how to use your phone’s editing software to correct color, crop photos, and size your images for publication. Using a tripod with your cell-phone to achieve proper exposure and a sharp focus will also be covered.

    The second class session will provide more hands-on practice time. Students will capture and edit images of their own objects with their own phones and individual one-on-one assistance.
