Really good overview -- learned a lot from the editing section
Great Workshop - Not just for iPhones
Lindsay Remigio
This workshop was concise but packed a lot of great information. The things taught can not only help you take better photos with your iPhone but can also be applied to any format of photography. I particularly enjoyed the section where Dan edits viewers photos. I feel inspired to get out and try what I learned.
Easy to digest and wonderful content
Collin
I think if I had taken this workshop before I became serious about photography, I would have progressed so much faster because Dan really emphasizes on the importance and aspect of storytelling and how you don’t need fancy equipment to tell great stories. I feel like I wouldn’t have invested into my camera as much, saved some money on gear and just started off shooting with my iPhone because that’s all you need! This was definitely different from the other wildist workshops but just as great in its own way. I’d definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who had a small budget but is looking to start their journey in photography! Really fantastic job Dan!
Great quick workshop
Lindsay Remigio
I thought this workshop was pretty good! It’s fairly quick and doesn’t take up too much time to complete. The lessons learned don’t just pertain to iPhone photography and can be used for any type of photography. Dan encourages you to get out and practice and try some new things. I also like how it’s taught from his hometown proving you don’t have to go on a grand trip to take great photos.
Great course for both iPhone photos and photography basics alike!
Colleen Goldhorn
Awesome course about working with the camera you have on you 24/7 – your phone. Also loved Dan’s insight into the basics of photography. His notes on composition changed the way I look at a scene, and made me excited to get out and input some of his suggestions into my photos.
