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.
