with Pei Ketron

March 19 and 21, 2024

Tuesday and Thursday; 5:00 – 7:00 pm (Mountain Time)

Course Description

These days, despite having access to multiple cameras, the one we carry with us most often is the built-in camera in our phones. These smartphone cameras shouldn’t be underestimated—they’re progressively becoming more powerful with each update, revolutionizing accessibility to photography. In fact, many photographers have completely transitioned from using DSLRs to relying solely on their smartphone cameras due to their impressive capabilities.

Discover the art of iPhone photography with photographer Pei Ketron, where she guides you in unlocking the full potential of your pocket-sized camera. This specialized class focuses on two sessions: the first, dedicated to refining capture techniques, and the second, diving into powerful editing tools.

Pei delves into picture-making techniques, workflow strategies, and post-processing tips, transforming your iPhone into a versatile camera, office, and darkroom – all in one device! She demonstrates post-processing directly using the Lightroom app on your phone. By the end, you gain a profound understanding of the iPhone’s remarkable potential as a photographic tool and its indispensable role in your photography workflow.

Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
