Photography on the iPhone has boomed in recent years, and many shutterbugs have totally ditched traditional cameras in everyday life. Unfortunately, many of us don’t have the greatest photography skills, so we can’t make the most of the advanced camera technology in our iOS devices. Cupertino is hoping to change that with some all-new workshops taking place beginning in January at Apple Stores, according to CNET.
No matter what your skill level is, these workshops will teach you how to use a handful of different apps to capture and create images more creatively. An Apple spokesperson told CNET what to expect out of the new iPhone photography workshop.
We’ll help you try out various accessories and techniques – like long exposure for light trails, using Time-lapse to show progression, or getting up close with nature using a macro lens. Then, we’ll explore artistic ways to adjust and edit your photos, so you can create a work of art, find your style, or just improve your skills.
Another workshop will be geared towards iPad artists, helping them learn techniques for sketching, drawing, and painting on the tablets.
Neither workshop is listed yet on the tech giant’s website, but they should be offered at all Apple Stores worldwide beginning in January 2016. The classes are part of Apple’s Start Something New campaign. A word of warning: the Start Something New campaign’s Web page is not for those prone to vertigo.
It’s great to see these new workshops added to Apple’s already impressive lineup of free classes. As a budding photographer, I’m going to be sure to catch one as early in 2016 as I can so I can improve my art. The workshops Apple offers are quite helpful, so I recommend checking these out when they arrive near you.
