Smart Phone Photography the PRO way

Smart Phone Photography Course



Course Overview

This is course if for anyone that has a phone and wants to take better photos. I had this idea of the course when I was talking to a friend and she was complaining that she couldn't take any good photos, that she was not a good photographer and that anyways phones don't take good photos. I then showed her my phone photos and she couldn't believe it, she thought that these were taken with a pro camera.

So I decided to show you how we can use the camera that we have on us at all times to take better photos. If you ever wanted to take your photos to the next level and you have a phone on you this course is for you!

We are going to tackle composing, exposure techniques, also some really cool ways to take photos and off course very easy retouching techniques. If you do buy and do this course send your best photos to [email protected] and hashtag them #photosergephone on instagram so I can see them!
