You don’t need a large, high-tech, professional camera to take some breathtaking photos.
Most of us carry powerful cameras every day—in the form of our smartphones! Thanks to their fantastic lenses, most smartphones can be valuable picture-taking tools, and it only takes time and attention—and some tips and tricks!—to capture amazing images. Join professional photographer Drew Tolbert for a crash course in getting the most out of your phone’s camera. Then, spend a morning in the Gardens—before we open to guests—practicing what you’ve learned. As a group, you’ll reconvene online to share and discuss your favorite smartphone shots.
