iPhone Photography Workshop, Mill Creek Metroparks, Youngstown – May 12 and 19, 2018

Spring in northeast Ohio is just around the corner, and daffodils, wildflowers, flowering trees and shrubs will be posing for portrait photography during the coming few weeks. You don’t need heavy, expensive Nikon, Canon, or Sony camera gear to take beautiful pictures of spring, your smartphone camera will do a great job if you know how to use it. To find out, join us in beautiful Mill Creek Metroparks near Youngstown for a 1-1/2 day iPhone Landscape and Nature Photography Workshop on Saturday, May 12 and May 19, 2018.
