iPhone Artistry: Travel Photography with a Mobile Touch

with Dan Burkholder

Course Description

Join Dan Burkholder for a week of photographic exploration in San Miguel, Mexico!

From the cobblestone streets of San Miguel to the inviting landscapes of Mexico, every day and evening will be filled with glowing photographic opportunities. And when the sun goes down, the fast lenses come out and ISOs go up as we explore the hidden intrigue and magnificence of San Miguel at night.

Enjoy a lightweight, modern approach to image making with photo critiques and classes all based on iPhones and iPads. That’s right, you can leave your laptop at home and spend your time making photos and memories rather than working in Photoshop and Lightroom. Discover the joy of editing during lunch on your iPhone or in the middle of the night on your iPad. Photograph and process the modern, compact and lightweight way — a dream for the travel photographer! Any camera is welcome — from DSLR to Mirrorless to iPhone — as long as you have a way to get your images onto your iPhone or iPad for viewing and editing.

Surrounded by the vibrant culture of colonial San Miguel de Allende, participants discover how to take full advantage of the iPhone’s handheld genius, while recognizing when specific tasks require a larger camera.

Whether you’re interested in capturing straight images or creating more painterly effects, you leave with an extensive toolkit of innovative visual techniques that simultaneously elevate your iPhone imagery and steer it in directions that mirror your unique vision.
