Which camera is the best? The one you have with you! Your iPhone is a constant companion, and its camera is always available to help you express yourself and capture your surroundings in original ways. During this two-day workshop, Rick Allred shares pro tips for using your iPhone effectively and with ease, all in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
As he provides techniques for maximizing the iPhone camera’s tools and features, you develop your eye for composition, while also discovering how to process and enhance your images. Through coverage of topics like exposure and how to control it, you gain a greater understanding the all-important aspect of light so you can use it fully to your advantage.
We balance our focus on the technical side of the iPhone with light-hearted expression, and you are encouraged to explore your creativity and hone your photographic style. By the workshop’s end, you are confidently using your iPhone’s camera to craft images that reflect your own unique view of the world.
Join Rick and get a handle on the skills that elevate your iPhone photographs from snapshot-quality to next-level compelling—from “meh” to magnificent!
Working knowledge of your iPhone and updated software for your phone.

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.
For the convenience of participants, recordings of each class session are posted privately for one month after the end of each session. Santa Fe Workshops takes the recordings down after one month to protect the intellectual property of our instructors.
