We usually think of photography as "capturing reality" and photo editing as restoring a photo to match what your eyes saw. In this class we put on our creative hats and think outside the box!
Using free or low-cost iPhone apps, and your photos as the starting point, we will let our imaginations run wild. You will transform every-day photos into creative riffs on reality or complete abstractions, using special effects from apps. The only limit is your imagination!
In the first session you will learn how to use the apps. In the second session, we will review your homework creations, and time permitting, learn other apps.
-Participants will need an iPhone to participate in the class. Ability to learn software on a mobile device necessary.
-Prior to the first class they should download apps at the request of the instuctor. The apps will cost less than $10.
-Zoom information will be provided prior to the first class.
-App list will be provided prior to the first class.
