Class Introduction

everybody. Welcome to my class on mobile photography and editing. I'm so so excited. To be in Seattle for the first time is gonna be so, so fun. We're exploring all of Seattle. But what I'm most excited about is letting you in on a bunch of my secrets Were gonna be setting up some settings on your phone, so it'll be easier for you to shoot. We're also gonna be scouting a bunch, letting you know how to scout in new locations and how to get the best out of a new place that you're in. We're also gonna be shooting a bunch. You'll see my tips and tricks on how I get low to the ground. I get high. Whatever the case may be that I need to get it done, and then we'll be organizing all our photos and will be so much easier to edit all of them later on. And then after that, we conceptualize or figure out what are we gonna do with all the photos? We have to figure out how to post and get everybody in on all the fun as well. So I hope you're inspired. I hope you're excited. Let's go...

Found it very interesting how Elise translated Photshop style art composition onto her mobile and how she scouted for images. It would have been good to have had a list of the apps she uses in the class information page. I had to go to her website to find them. I appreciate she mentioned them in her tutorial but a list would have been helpful too. Having been doing composite work on my iphone recently it was great to see another artist at work and their approach. All in all, very enjoyable class.

I think the class could have been longer with more detail about the editing. I am glad I purchased the class and can go back to watch again because she goes through the editing process very fast. Overall some good tips about shooting with your phone and worth $25 to me.

I cannot attest to the course content as I tuned out after and left after the 10the use of the irritatingly over-used word, by videomakers, "super". By god, get a thesaurus, people.
