iphone photo love

I am amazed how much I use my phonecam, when I am not officially on a job. It's so freeing.  If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't , why not? oh comeon.  I'm galezucker) you'd maybe have seen these two images this week.  With a couple of phone apps, I can make photoediting/processing changes that, not so long ago, took hours of photoshop.  I am not exaggerating here.
Also not so long ago, a knitter jokingly said "You know, you should  teach a  phonecam Photo for Knitters class because I am too lazy to use my real camera" and we all laughed.  At the time, the cameras weren't so good, the controls weren't there. But now? Absolutely.  Is it the same as shooting with a DSLR ? Nope. But can you make images you'll love,  that capture your life and your craft and your world? And can enliven your FB and fill your Ravelry projects page ? Oh yes.

Which is why I am thrilled to be teach SmartPhone Masterpieces at The YarnSpot in Wheaton/ Silver Spring Maryland next weekend.  Saturday morning, November 22, 10:30-1:30. I am also thrilled that Sivia Harding is teaching there too next weekend, so I get to meet her. Join us! It's going to be fun. I guarantee you'll learn some new tricks.
Isn't the world a grand and colorful place? You probably won't be surprised to learn my standard reply to the question "what's the best camera? "  is : the one you have on you.

WHEN WILL YOU COME WEST?????
I would sign up instantly if you'd just come to Seattle-area (or better, Vancouver CA!!)

Think about it?? Pleeeeease??

So, I'm in Sydney (Australia) and I would love this course - maybe an online version. Otherwise, if you happen down this way, the Knitters Guild would host you in a flash.

I'd take your class in a heartbeat, if you ever make it near me. I find I use my iPhone and iPad cameras much more than I ever use my "real" camera.

Would you do the camera as a Craftsy course? That would be another great way to get it out there.

Sorry, I meant "do the class"
