Transform your smartphone snapshots into striking images through this hands-on, four-week photography class. Pixel Playground is designed for both beginner and intermediate photographers.
This interactive class will guide you through the essentials of smartphone photography including developing composition, choosing setting, and learning photo editing. Inspired by Evelyn Hofer: Eyes on the City, we will explore architectural and portrait photography both in the gallery and on the streets of Midtown. The class will conclude with a session dedicated to fine tuning your images using your phone’s editing features, followed by a group critique and discussion of our bodies of work, which we will print and mat. Grab your smartphone and embark with us on this photographic journey as you experiment and refine your photography skills.
This class meets on-site at the High Museum of Art. Participants must bring their own smartphone, but all other supplies will be provided.
