This weekend I had the amazing privilege of teaching iPhone photography at the Apple Store on the Upper West Side.

I shared some of the photos from my childhood that my father took, and talked about how they inspire me to create the same kind of memories and documentation for my own boys. I noted how happy it makes me when Photosanity parents end up buying or upgrading to a new iPhone after working with me, because it's the camera I use the most to capture spontaneous everyday moments I would otherwise miss as I am not going to carry my DSLR with me all the time. In fact, the first photos of both Liam and Jack were taken on my iphone!

I also shared some of my favorite tips for taking better photos on your iPhone, and we even had a short period of time for people to try out my tips and share their photos with me so I could do some live editing using apps like Snapseed and Camera+ to show the simple transformations that can be made to photos before sharing them.

I closed with a few suggestions on how to seamlessly download and organize iPhone photos and talked about ShutterCal as a great all in one system for sharing daily photos digitally, in prints and on your wall.

Thank you to everyone who came out for the workshop! I've already had a few inquiries about whether there will be an online version of this course so I will think about it although it won't be this year as my schedule is already packed.

But in the meantime, everything I talked about on Saturday is covered in some form in my Stop Missing the Moment Workshop and The Photosanity Workshop. Unlimited membership in the Photosanity Peer-to-Peer Facebook group is included with the purchase of either workshop, so I do hope you will join me and your fellow photo-obsessed parents there!
