Someone said: "just because you have a good camera doesn't mean you're a photographer". In fact the quality of photography is not proportional to the number of pixels that you own, but it's more related to consciousness of your limitations. You can have the best camera in the world, but if you let it do the "seeing" for you, then you’re probably missing out on some amazing shots. So if you're thinking of buying an expensive camera to improve your photographic skills you're probably doing it wrong. The iPhone, on the other hand, is something that you always carry with you and its built-in camera is all you need to start off. Most of us don't like it when our smartphones take decisions by themselves, I will show you a few tricks and apps so you can gain control of your iPhone and unleash your creativity. I will also share some basics of photography to bring your artistic flair in line with good taste. And, of course, don't forget to recharge your iPhone battery before coming to the class!

Bring one of the following:
bottle of wine
homemade food
photographic films

About the teacher, Davide

I started taking my first pictures almost 8 years ago and I soon came up to street photography, portrait and social reportage. In 2011 I took part to "The family of Flickr" project from FIAF followed by a publication on the magazine "Riflessioni". In 2012 I studied photojournalism with Luigi Gariglio from Contrasto Agency and the same year I won the "1 Euro project" contest sponsored by Luz Photo Agency. My works have been exhibited at FNAC, Museum of Contemporary Art of Castello di Rivoli and CIFA.
