Today, more than 60% of the world’s pictures are taken with a cell phone camera, and Apple’s iPhone is the most popular smartphone. Join Ohio photographer and writer Ian Adams for a one-day iPhone Photography Workshop on Saturday, May 14 at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens in Akron,Ohio. This program is packed with information on how to take great outdoor photographs with your iPhone, plus some of the best apps for capturing photos and fine-tuning them on your iPhone, iPad, PC or Mac. Ian Adams is intimately familiar with the landscape and gardens at Stan Hywet, where he produced new photographs during 2014 for the book, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens – Centennial Edition.
