Better Smartphone Photography

Become a master of Instagram with this fun, dynamic class that will help you understand the tools and techniques of high-quality smartphone photography.


Get more out of your smartphone camera

It's an old saying among photographers: "The best camera is the one you have with you right now."

And for us in the 21st century, that often means our smartphones. In this fun and surprising class, we welcome smartphone photographers of all kinds - from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy to Google Pixel - as we stroll different neighborhoods in the Greater Boston area, learning to use the tools we have at our fingertips every day of the week.

Your instructor will help you explore built-in smartphone camera technology, helpful modes, universal compositional techniques that will make better photos with any camera, and popular mobile editing programs.


Psst, these were all taken with a smartphone.

Better Smartphone Photography

If you haven't yet purchased a camera with all the bells and whistles, or you just feel like traveling light sometimes, this is the class for the smartphone photography enthusiast. Great for travel photos, candid family moments, or even food photography, this class will expand your knowledge no matter what your photography skill level is.

After a brief discussion of how to use your phone’s camera to the its fullest capabilities, we’ll put your new knowledge to work by going on a photo walk in one of Boston’s bustling and photo-worthy neighborhoods.
