Introducing a new iPhone photography course just for JourneyWomen
By Carolyn Ray, JourneyWoman Publisher
We’re rolling out the first of our courses for 2021, and what better place to start than photography! In August, I had the pleasure of meeting photographer and author Lee Horbachewski. When she showed me her photographs of grizzly bears and gave me an overview of how to better use my iPhone for photography, I was hooked!
This three-part series will help you bring your travel stories to life
Lee has developed a three-part series on travel photography with your iPhone, just for JourneyWomen.
In this course, you will learn how to capture amazing images with your iPhone. Whether it’s landscape, people, architecture, or wildlife, you will learn how to set up your iPhone camera correctly, and many wonderful hidden gems that will help you make the most of this small and mighty tool. Lessons on mindfulness, composition and lighting will give you the tools to make the most of every magical moment. To round out the course, you’ll learn how to edit your images to take them from good to great and a fun showcase of everyone’s work with fabulous prizes.
Module 1 – Mindfulness, iPhone set up & Composition (October 12)
Module 2 – Lighting & Editing (October 19)
Module 3 – Q & A and Showcase (October 26)
Each module will be 90 minutes with time for discussion.
The final session will be a showcase with photos featured on the JourneyWoman website and on our social media platforms. All photos shared will remain the property of those who submit them.
Sessions will be recorded.
