iPhoneography courses and lessons
Andy Royston is available to teach iPhoneography courses. Andy loves to share his work – and his skills – with others. As iPhonegraphy is enjoying a huge explosion at the moment, many colleges and art museums are offering courses and seminars.
If you’d like to make use of this facility, just let us know. Here’s an edited recent article I read about an iPhonegraphy course at London’s Kensington and Chelsea College:
Love your iPhone and playing with popular photo apps like Instagram and Hipstamatic, but convinced your photos could be better? London’s Kensington and Chelsea College has the course for you, held at the Chelsea Centre and promising to teach techniques that will turn your iPhone photos from mundane to magnificent.
The course, entitled “iPhoneography: Photography with your iPhone” runs for five weeks with a three hour session each week, and three hours on exercises outside of class. There’s also a one-week condensed course that runs Monday to Friday.
According to a report last month from the BBC, the course is believed to be a UK first. Topics covered include basic composition techniques and editing skills including blending, cloning, and collage creation.
It sounds like a fun way to get up to speed on the latest iPhone photography apps and techniques, and to make some friends with similar interests. Fees run anywhere from £115 to £263, depending on whether you’re from within or outside the European Union, and whether you opt for the five-week or condensed course. The only required equipment is an Apple iPhone of any generation, and you’ll need to purchase around £20 in apps needed for the course. Although you won’t receive a qualification of any kind on completion of the course, you’ll have your portfolio to show the world that you are, indeed, an iPhoneographer. Cool!
I do think though that the ‘exercises out of class’, field trips I assume, would be more fun in Florida than in London!
