Hi. Welcome to mastering mobile photography. Using the IPhone light through Mobile. Another third party apse. My name is Lisa Carney. I am a photographer, avid light room user and retouch er you can find me on be hints or instagram LinkedIn the usual places. This class is all about capturing and editing on the go. And when I say on the go, I really mean from anywhere on the go and this class is gonna be about really bumping up your mobile photography, your skills and your image quality. So who's this class Good for this class? If you're a beginner, you're new to mobile photography. This is going to show you equipment and APS to get started. I need to be honest here. There's gonna be some parts of this class. If you're a beginner, they're gonna be a bit advanced. But the great thing about this platform is you can come back anytime and re watch it. And as your skills grow, get more out of the class. Now, if you already like what you've been creating on your IPhone or your mobile device, ...
this is definitely gonna dive into processing and editing to really improve your skills and your ability to realize your vision. And if you're a professional or really quite skilled, I am certain this boot camp is gonna up your game in terms, your speed and your agility. So what kind of photography are we talking about? Look, this is good for all sorts of genres. Editorial work. You can use it for landscape photography. You can use it for macro photography. I'm very into macro photography on the IPhone. I think it's pretty exciting. And pets? You could do all sorts of scenarios and styles using pets. Portraiture. There's a wealth of things you could do with portraiture, especially in the editing and the lighting on this boot camp class travel photography. So how are we gonna look at this? So mobile photography for this particular boot camp? What we're gonna do is we're gonna look at equipment, and when I talk about equipment, I'm not talking about big purchases. I'm really talking about small accessories that you can add that will really up your game. We're going to spend a good time talking about camera capture, and what I mean is how you actually get the image into this device so Even though you're using the same lens on the device, the camera application you use will make a huge difference. And then the bulk of the class is going to be about processing. And what I mean by processing is I mean, editing. So I really think of light room as a darkroom in your hand. And so we're gonna investigate the best ways of using that tool. And in addition to processing, we're gonna be looking at third party apse, which could get you some pretty amazing effects. So I want to let you know that from my particular style of teaching, if you know me on creative life is I do not do prescriptive classes. And what I mean by that is I am not going to be spending a lot of time trying to show you how I get my looks. What I'm going to spend a lot of time is is really teaching you what's inside this device and how you can utilize this to get your looks. Now, I'm certainly going to show you how I do my editing, but the bulk of the class is going to explain the mechanics of this now a really good friend of mine gave me a great analogy, he said. It's kind of like a recipe. If you have a recipe, sure, you could make that cake again and again and again. But what if you want to experiment and do your own work or your own creation? So I think of light room and mobile photography in this genre. I want to teach you the ingredients and how the process works so you can make your own creations. So here's another really big portion of my course, and what's important to me is that it's the wizard. It's not the wand. And what do I mean by that? I mean, it's not the latest and greatest device, you know. Are you on the IPhone? 12. Are you on IPhone seven? Are you shooting a galaxy or android phone? A pixel phone? It doesn't matter. What matters is your vision and what you're trying to create. So I'm gonna work on doing that with you. And why do I like mobile photography so much? I have to tell you, for me, the phone has or this mobile device has become so invisible that it kind of removed any barrier that I find between me and my subjects. And for me again, this is a personal taste. When I'm shooting with an SLR camera, it seems so big and so intrusive for my style of shooting. And that's why I really love my photography. Yeah, let us talk about fidelity of the imagery. I think this is really important. It's kind of like discussing the elephant in the corner. Sure, sloop cameras have much better Christmas and fidelity in the capture that you get. So even though the file size might be the same, you can have a 35 megabyte file off a mobile device or off in SLR DSLR camera. But the lens quality via DSLR camera and the sensor is bigger, so the quality is better. However, what are you using this for? I will tell you, the majority of work that people are shooting now is for social or some kind of screen resolution. So the IPhone is certainly good enough for that. And in addition, look, I print my work by 40 and hang it up, and it completely holds up so well. I DSLR camera has a better fidelity. Perhaps the mobile device has enough for you and I'm going to tell you technology changes. I really think these devices are getting better and better and better. And I don't think it's gonna be too long till, frankly, DSLR might be obsolete. Who knows? But remember, it's the wizard. It's not the wand. I have a friend of mine from Art Center. He gave me a great compliment. He was saying how? He said, I took great photos with the plastic camera. You know, I have shot with four by five medium format, 35 millimeter and yes, a plastic toy camera. So it's not the wand, it's the wizard.
