Photography: Creative ways to use Smartphone Photography

Photography is a way of seeing, and showing how you see the world around you. Smartphone photography has become increasingly popular. On average, people around the globe take over a trillion photos each year and according to research 92% of these photographs are taken with smartphones! This course will allow you to explore how to use your phone in a more creative way. Instead of taking just one photo of a subject you’re interested in, you will be encouraged to take 10, 20, or even 30 photographs then spend some time looking at your pictures to see which ones you like the best, and why. You will explore what makes an image stand out, looking for unique or unexpected angles, playing with composition to help you create illusions of depth and height. You will also discover how it feels to go out on shoots, visiting different location local to Weston-Super-Mare seafront. At the course’s conclusion, you will experiment with different post making methods, including photomontage, illustration, drawing and hand colouring on to photographs in order to help you produce a Photobook, using a series of images that tell a story about your experience of living in Weston - Super -Mare.
