Mobile phone photography workshop

Today I participated in a mobile phone photography workshop by Marianne Hope, a Norwegian lady living in the Netherlands. It was hosted by Hééérlijk, a cooking school and caterer located at the Fort van Penningsveer, Haarlemmerliede. This fort is part of the Stelling van Amsterdam, a military defense wall built in the 1800's. A beautiful location for a workshop.

Marianne talked about photography in general and mobile phone photography in particular. Explained a few apps she frequently uses and after lunch we were sent outside to try for ourselves. The weather was lovely and there was enough material to shoot.

A few of the apps she uses are: Snapseed, VSCOcam, Retouch, and Rhonna Designs.

One of my fellow participants was Martine, she just started her own printing business Via Martine. On her website you can order prints from your iPhone photos. Something I will definitely try soon!

Hééérlijk provided us with coffee, tea and a lovely lunch. All in all a very instructive and enjoyable day.
