“iPhoneography 101 for Kids!” Workshop

Does your child love taking photos?

At Starting Point Photography, we have been helping photographers learn to shoot better images for over 15 years. This summer, we’re going to help kids learn how to use their iPhone camera to create and edit photos they’ll be proud to show off to family and friends!

They’ll learn the ins and outs of the iPhone camera app, including how to edit their photos to bring out the best of the image. They’ll learn things professionals know and use in every one of their shots.

Want to know a secret? Creating great photographs isn’t about the camera. Everyone can take great images no matter what kind of camera they have. We’ll help kids learn in an easy to comprehend, informative, and fun way how to think about taking a photograph before they even point their iPhone at a subject and how to edit the image afterward to make it even better.

The mini-camp will be in Gibsons on Tuesday, July 9th through Thursday, July 11th, from 10am to 1pm, at the kube studio, 104-875 Gibsons Way. The class will take approximately three hours, half of which will be hands-on, actually taking photos under our instruction. We’ll teach the children some of the ideas, theories, and techniques professional photographers know and use. We promise their iPhone photos will get better!

The class will include:
“iPhoneography Secrets Revealed!” – We’ll teach them the single most important element of every good photo.
“Creative vs Technical” – Kids will learn how to take advantage of all aspects of iPhoneography
“App Differences” – We’ll talk about the pros and cons of using the native iPhone app vs other free and paid ones.

And much more!

All classes are run by a professional photographer and a “Professional Explainer” for kids aged 11-14 who want to learn how to take better photographs.

We’ll help your child learn how to take photos like these:

then quickly and easily turn them into these on their iPhones!:
