The iPhone is not only a powerful tool for documenting your life through single imagery, but also an excellent means of creating stunning composite images. Over the course of this one-day introductory workshop, James will give you the skills you need to create your own unique images and composites on the iphone or iPad. You will learn how to allow images to present themselves by tapping into your creative process. We will have hands-on assignments both before the class begins as well as during the workshop.
Using iPhone apps like Juxstaposer, Image Blender, Hipstamatic, and Scratchcam FX, learn to find the ‘magic in the mundane’ and to express your unique vision as a photographic artist. Special note: An iPhone and additional apps are required.

“For me, taking pictures with a mobile device is more about collecting raw material. The capacity to add, subtract, combine, slice, dice, and manipulate said raw material with Mobile Applications is utterly astounding. It really gives you a sense of freedom that you don’t get, somehow, sitting at your computer.”
