Thomas Peck
Mobile Phone Photography

Visitors are welcome - £5 on the evening

A presentation of two halves.

First looking at the types of photography that the mobile phone is ideal for – from portraiture including selfies of course, to landscape, architecture, cityscapes, how to use the phone to ‘sketch’ before getting out the ‘proper camera’.

All of these will be illustrated via a mix of the presenter’s own photographs plus some of the leading mobile phone photographers in the world.

The second half will have a practical focus linking the presenter’s phone to the screen to show how to get the best out of taking phone photos and then how best to process them.

Members are encouraged to take images with their phones before the evening so we can process them together on the night.
