It's Not Just Luck

A 2-Day Master Class in iPhone Art with Meri Aaron Walker, iPhoneArtGirl

The Newborn, 4: Meri Aaron Walker

Class Details:

On August 30-31, traditional photographers and experienced mobile photographers will gather at the A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas, for a 2-day master class in the skilled thinking and technical processing required to make serious photographs and mobile art with an iPhone and iPad.

Meri Aaron Walker, aka iPhoneArtGirl, will take participants through the ins and outs of camera replacement apps, app-stacking processes that won't degrade image quality, and the deliberate use of social media to build professional and learning relationships instead of wasting time.

Participants will be invited to join and use a private group blog set up expressly for this class and encouraged to continue using it after the class to share inspiration, answer questions, and build learning community in the weeks and months ahead.

The workshop will be 100% hands-on, keeping you on your toes, pushing you to use the techniques you will be learning. You’ll be inspired with a wide-range of ideas for making powerful smartphone images and practice using apps you can stack to make intricately crafted images that you’re proud to display, publish and/or sell.
