Sharing the Magic: Nature Photography With Your Smartphone

Our phones are quickly becoming sophisticated – and groundbreaking – nature photography tools, and in this series of three workshops, we will explore the fundamentals, as well as some advanced ways you can use your phone to effectively communicate your natural discoveries.

In this three-part workshop, join veteran photographer Greg Stone as we learn some of the basics and best practices for capturing images of the natural world in digital photography using only a smartphone:

There is no skill level or specific make and model of smartphone required, but  each phone is a little different, so demonstrations will be done with an iPhone 14 Pro Max and a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, both of which have especially good cameras. But most of what I do with them can be done with any modern smartphone.

The workshops will be held on three consecutive Tuesday evenings in August and will begin at 7 pm.

Each workshop will start with a brief lesson, and, weather permitting, will be followed by an outdoor assignment session that will take advantage of the Golden Hour, ending about  20 minutes after sunset.  People of any skill level are encouraged to participate. Photos taken in any WLCT area in the ensuing week can be posted to a special FB private group created just for the workshops.

About the instructor: Greg Stone has photographed, written about, and lived in the cultural and natural history of southern New England to its fullest. He has loved photography since the day as a 13-year old, when he stepped out of his door with his older brother’s Brownie Hawkeye camera and took pictures as Hurricane Carol raged, pushing the Barrington River onto his front yard. He sold sets of prints of those pictures to neighbors and bought a real camera. By profession he’s a writer, by love he’s a photographer.
