Social Media Basics - Creating Great Visuals

How to Take Great Photos with your Smartphone

The best camera you have, is the one that you have in your hand. Most often this is a smartphone. The technology in your smartphone is often far better and easy to use than an entry level digital camera.

From this workshop you will learn:

  • Going from wonky pictures to wonderful photos by teaching you professional photography tips
  • Learning to take better photographs will help you promote and generate leads on your social media platforms, newsletter or adverts,
  • Learn the general principles of professional photography, showing you the benefits of good lighting, how to set up photos and top editing tips.

This workshop will empower you to take more photos and use them with impact on your online and social platforms. It will also coach you on how to use photography to connect effectively with existing and future customers.
