iPhoneography Learn the art of iPhone photo-taking
Gail Pierce, past president of the Marin Photo Club will tell us how to capture an image with an iPhone, how to enhance these images using photo apps, and how to wirelessly transfer them to a computer or iPad.
Gail, a serious photographer since 1998, has earned a Masters level in many categories of competition, She exhibits her work throughout Marin and holds iPhonograpy Workshops.
"I'm an iPhone junkie now," Gail says, "enjoying the new technology by capturing and totally creating fine art on the iPhone" Having shelved her old SLR camera, she is now winning first places with her iPhone.
She will also show us many attachments she has for her iPhone including a three lens set, a wrist strap, an iPhone anchor, a tripod and an Oliclip. She will also discuss the Photojojo Store and the many applications she uses with her iPhone.
"Gail is full of energy, enthusiasm and passion" says Peter Girodano, who attended one of her presentations at the Marin Photo Club. "What was most enjoyable is her whimsical attitude toward creating art-she explores, experiments, and creates wonderful art without letting technology get in the way."
