It’s been said that the best camera is the one that’s always with you… There isn’t always time to set up a tripod and perfect the exposure on a DSLR.

Momentary, stunning lighting on a landscape. A toddler’s first stuttering attempts at standing. An interaction between strangers on the street strikes you as unexpectedly poignant. There is beauty and opportunity for storytelling all around us, but inspiration often comes with a ticking clock. Fortunately, we live in an age where the potential for professional-quality photos rides in our pockets wherever we go.

Join us for this free online workshop, Storytelling with Mobile Photography by Ed Kashi. This in-depth workshop will show you how to use the power of your smartphone to create truly powerful visual stories.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to identify the aesthetic considerations of a location and be intentional with the type of image you want to capture
  • How to interact with people in various situations and capture the emotion you are looking for in a portrait
  • How to quickly edit your photos within your mobile device and share with the world

Amateurs and professional photographers alike will benefit on this deep dive into mobile visual storytelling. You will learn how to capture striking images, alter them in post-production, and make the most of social media to spread the impact of your stories. Bring more meaning and intentionality to the way you record your everyday experience, and discover the powerful versatility of the lens in your phone.
