Uh But understanding these technical aspects are really key for helping you when you want to get more creative. So you know how to use your camera to take a great photo or really what's in your mind, what you're trying to achieve uh a lot of the things that we'll be talking about, they really apply to photography as a whole. You know, whether you're using a professional Ds LR or mirrorless camera or your smartphone. Now, of course, we're going to be specifically talking about the smartphone uh and how to use these things to take great photos.

Ratings and Reviews


Definitely geared to beginners, but the class has a lot of good information. As an advanced camera photographer still trying to get to know my phone camera better, I learned a few things I didn't know (like you can use portrait mode for selfies, what hyper lapse is and the VSCO app). Nice job!


Good course for everyone starting out and needed to have some more basic info beyond the common snap shot. I had wished for more info on using mobile in the more professional field like when switching from camera to mobile. Additional lenses and flashes and things like that. But this course was obviously not targeted at this. So overall still a nice brush up.


Great class. Well organized and clearly presented. Would be very good for beginners and mid level users. highly recommend.
