Creative Smartphone Group

(available to members only)

I will again be leading the monthly Smartphone specialty group and I hope you are planning on joining us as we dive into using the camera we keep in our pocket to make the occasional phone call.  We will start up our group meetings in October.

Ever improving camera capabilities in today’s Smartphones, coupled with the fact that we typically carry them with us at all times, lends them to be an amazing tool to capture your world in a new creative way. All smart phones models are welcome and we will share our knowledge across the models to ensure everyone is included. 

During these group nights, we will review some fun tools (lenses, tripods, etc.) that can enhance the use of your Smartphone and we will also explore some fun shooting and editing apps that will give your creative juices a boost and help you bring out your inner painter or abstract artist. A program such as Snap Seed is like having Photoshop on your phone. We will discuss and review favorite apps and photos taken with the apps. 

My goal this year is to also have an interactive group review of images taken with or edited with our phones during the first part of our meetings.  We can airdrop them at the start of the meeting, if you have an iPhone, or you can email me a photo ahead of time to frasermm42@verizon.net.  We will then have a few minutes to share new fun apps people are loving or answer questions and problem solve. The last part of our meetings will be an in depth review/live demo of an app or two. After the review of this new app, the goal will be to take an image or edit an image to share at the next group meeting.

For our first meeting in October, please email me or bring a photo (if you have an iPhone) taken or edited on your smartphone with any app. This will be a great way to see what creative images we all produced over the summer, what new apps we found and get us set up for the year. For future meetings we will send out an email blast of the app we will be previewing or working with that month. You do not have to attend all the meetings, please feel free to come when you can!  

Don’t forget to bring your passwords (for downloading apps) and your Smartphone! 

I look forward to seeing everyone at our first meeting in October and at future meetings throughout the year.

If you have any questions, please reach out to phonegroup@greaterlynnphoto.org

Plan to join us!
