- US $ 7,500
Lurking inside the iPhone is one of the most inspiring, capable and fun imaging systems in all of photography. More than just a snapshot device, the iPhone is a powerful, creative tool for creating art, right in our palms. We now have camera, darkroom, and—as Jerry Uelsmann would say—Visual Research Laboratory, all in our shirt pocket!
Liberated from rushing home to our computers, we can shoot and process our images in the field, learning what works (and doesn’t) to make our captures match our vision. This Iceland workshop combines the latest in image capture and processing with a diet of stunning landscapes and subject matter.
Among Many Topics Dan Will Cover:
