iPhoneography: the new iPhone Photography Study Course

The growing popularity of Apple devices has seen them increasingly being adopted as learning tools in the classroom, and now the iPhone itself, more specifically its photographic capabilities, has become the subject of study.

As the Kensington and Chelsea Chronicle informs us, one UK college will be offering students who are interested in getting the best out of their iPhone's camera a five week course on photography based on the handset's tools.

'iPhoneography: An Introduction to Photography with the iPhone,' will be taught by Richard Gray and promises to unveil the subtle techniques for capturing photos that an iPhone delivers. Also, the course is supposed to offer useful suggestions from the wide range of iPhone apps dedicated to passionate photographers.

By the end of the course, it is claimed, students will have mastered the techniques, discovered the right apps suitable for them, and with the enhanced skills will be able to uncover the creative potential of the iPhone.

"iPhoneography is a great levelling force within photography. No longer do you need expensive or complex equipment to produce great images. (...) The traditional photographic world has no idea of the vast range of creative processes that can be explored on the iPhone," Richard Gray explains.
