Take your smartphone photography to the next level with Dr. Karen West’s Smartphone Photo Art Workshop
Smartphone Photo Art brings a fun and exciting creative level to smartphone photography. Dr. West’s Snapseed formula: adjusting contrast, color, saturation, highlights, perspective, and other basic post-processing tools makes the adjustments easy to learn and often a common response heard at her workshops is, “WOW!” Apps are easy to learn, can have a dramatic effect on images, and are available on both iPhone and Android applications.
Please download Snapseed and Prisma BEFORE the workshop. If you want to learn to print your images, download Big Photo and Image Blender.
Be sure that your battery is fully charged and there is plenty of storage space. Make sure to bring your phone and charger.
Monday, August 12th 5-8pm
$45 for members and $60 for non-members
Dr. West is a photographer by heart and passion and a philosophy teacher by mind and trade. Both have come together in her latest photographic adventures with the iPhone. Making the transition from 15 years as a fine art photographer with the DSLR camera to the tiny iPhone and its limitless possibilities of creativity has opened Karen’s eye to the everyday world around her in new and amazing ways. Dorothea Lange said, “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see, without a camera.” This has never been more true for Karen since she started shooting with the iPhone. The whole world becomes the subject because she always has her camera tucked away in her back pocket. Dr. West has a BS in Recreation Administration, a Masters in philosophy, theology, and women’s studies, and a Doctorate in Higher Education Administration. She’s been a non-profit agency administrator, grant writer, higher education administrator, women’s studies and philosophy professor, grant-writing seminar instructor, author, and finally a professional photographer. Four years ago, she fell in love with the tiny iPhone camera. It liberated her eye to see the details of the world and finally taught her how to “paint with the camera.”
