    Crash Course: Quick & Dirty Portrait Photography

    (9)
    Making a great portrait doesn't necessarily require expensive gear. Take one of the most famous portraits of all time: Steve McCurry's Afghan Girl, shot for the cover of National Geographic in 1985 using only a 35mm camera and natural light. It's not the tools themselves that do the job, but rather the mind creating with them. In this illuminating Crash Course we'll help you to observe, visualize and control natural light, demonstrating how light and shadow, as well as different focal lengths, affect the dimensions of the human face. You'll get valuable practice photographing people and learn to put subjects at ease. Make vivid portraits a part of your everyday.

    iPhoneography 101

    (9)
    This camera never leaves your side… lucky for you it's a pretty excellent camera. The iPhone is like the swiss army knife of cameras, with an explosion of apps and filters, but it still has that unique quality entirely its own. Like the Polaroid and Instamatic before it, the iPhone's camera has become a cultural touchstone, beloved by pros and hobbyists alike. We’ll take you through a presentation of the handheld medium, from classic snapshot photographers to contemporary innovators of smartphone photography. We'll break down the important control features often hidden from view in the iPhone's Camera app, as well as how to tweak the camera and options to get what you want. Students will take part in a live-shooting session and share the photos using some of our favorite recommended apps.
