  • Overview

    Iphoneography is a new concept in photography: the professional use of the iPhone camera. Various iPhone apps and constant connection to the internet (either via wi-fi or cellular data) can turn an iPhone camera into a powerful, self-sustained hand-held camera and darkroom ready to disseminate information globally in today's constantly changing digital market. Students will learn to use the iPhone camera to produce photojournalism essays, portraits, landscapes, and fashion images using different iPhone applications and professional post-processing tools. The final images will be published in a dedicated class website and will be delivered to students as fine art prints for their final portfolio.
