Have you ever said "this photo doesn't do justice to what I saw"? Have you ever thought "if only I had a better camera, I'd have better pictures"? Not Anymore! During this experience, you'll Learn how to take AWESOME photos with your PHONE so that you can capture all the beauty and excitement from your adventures. You'll learn how to capture moments that will have your friends saying "WOW"! We'll start out with an intuitive, fun introduction of composition and lighting, and discuss how to truly capture a moment by focusing on what you are feeling (not just what you see). We'll explore the area around the Pier and watch how lighting changes in the late afternoon and continues to evolve during and after sunset (some of most incredible, most colorful moments of a sunset come after the sun has dipped below the horizon). Afterwards, we'll spend some learning to edit, so that your photos are rich in color, texture and feeling.
In one hour, you'll Learn how to take AWESOME photos with your PHONE, while at the same time, you'll enjoy a beautiful sunset at one of the most iconic locations in Southern California - the Newport Beach Pier. A photographer for more than 30 years, Don now shoots exclusively with a phone (and sometimes a drone, too). Don's photos have been featured in numerous exhibits, with this past spring's exhibit covered by the LA Times. Want to see what you can capture with a phone? Look at instagram: donmurrayphotos
