So every quarter for twenty four dollars, they send me a book of all my instagram images, an album and it's automatic. I don't think about it just comes in the mail like I don't get it and it's printed and ready, and now I have a volume of four books a year for every year of my child's life. Isn't it awesome? All my snapshots are automatically and electronically converted into print. I don't have to think about it here's some fun accounts to follow I'm gonna leave this up for a few minutes so people can kind of screen shot this or write it down so many's people use iphone on lee and they take amazing pictures, whether it be just lance, get most of them are people. Benjamin hole is a farmer in ireland, and he takes pictures of farm life using his iphone incredible work. Amber filler up is based she's, a travel travel blogger, and she is pregnant right now and has her other little son, and she just travels the world and takes beautiful pictures of her son and herself in different locations. Mama's gone city I don't know if you guys know mom's gone city she has a dog theo and bo she's a book called theo and bow and her rise to fame was because she took beautiful pictures of their adopted puppy theo sleeping with her son beau naptime some nap time with you and bo it's just incredibly like it's talk about target the heartstrings kuperberg anna kuperberg she takes amazing pictures of dogs with her phone nuanced seven this is the guy who's like hanging off the cliff just all the composite work he's really need this wild idea took a picture lady dolly in five and germs lease these air all neat accounts fellow for some inspiration, okay? And then go ahead a screen shot of that if you guys want to save it and then if you want to find me, this is where to find me so we are going to start doing some shooting because we don't have much time left. We're running up time here, but we're gonna start shooting with ezra and riot really quickly and then I do want to take some of those images in the photo jeannie so we're gonna rock and roll here pretty quickly on belinda is going to be here for safety she's my studio manager and assistant, I'm always very conscientious of being safe with babies s o and because we have this city, especially with ezra, he could sit on it's kind of got around surface on I want to make sure that he's safe at all times just she'll be standing by when I shoot just to make sure because I'm kind apparently that way, okay, so if we can get this light fired on and we're gonna bring, can I take some questions while we're kind of getting set up for that? Well, first of all, we have a question from joan who wants to know whether you've got a release from dean because he is going to be famous? Obviously, no, I did not. But he's cute carolyn m is wondering whether you can shoot in raw on the phone or with the normal setting. How do you set up the kind of image quality on the phone? Well, image, quality, it's kind of what it is, what it is and it's always going to give you a nice big files, but they are j picks. You know, the iphone does not have the ability to to shoot in raw, but because the files are so big, there's a lot of pixel data on them. Which nowadays does make it nice? And that is the advantage of having high megapixels is that you're going to have more pixels toe work with when you go into edit. Which does, I guess, improve quality. And I should've said that before it's. A great question.

I've just managed to watch this short class while my 18 month old had a nap. I have picked up so many useful tips, particularly on composition but also with how the iPhone camera functions. The suggested apps look fantastic - I would love to find a UK company a bit like which will make Instagram pics into books - such an amazing idea. If you can spare an hour and want to pick up some great tips, this course is worth the money. I now feel I have more tools to hand to get the most out of photography on my phone.

I am in love with my DSLR and seldom use my phone camera for artistic shots. I watched this workshop only because it was part of Photoshop week. What a wonderful surprise when I not only picked up some great iPhone tips, but also a better understanding of what I had known vaguely and intuitively about composition power points. Way to go, Julia! Your class is totally worth the price of admission.
