PHOTO CLASSES: Seattle camera workshops with Tom Dempsey

Smartphone Photography with instructor Tom Dempsey

8-class series on Mondays and Wednesday at 1:15-2:45pm on January 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29, 31.

The latest smartphones make photography easier than ever, right out of the box. Bring your fully-charged phone to class, and we’ll learn how to better previsualize, expose, focus, compose, make panoramas, edit color tones, and share to impress your friends. Please consider upgrading, as phones made within the past 2 years have brighter screens visible in sunlight, and capture better shadow detail while preserving highlights with HDR Auto. Good cameras include iPhone 6s, Samsung Galaxy S6, Google Pixel, and later models.

  1. Virtually by accident, I happened into Tom’s website in time to attend his basic “Light Travel” workshop in Lake City (Seattle), this spring (2016).
    Tom’s teaching style is so versatile that virtually anyone can profit, whether you’re trying to figure out your cell-phone camera, or an advanced enthusiast, shooting a complex DSLR. Tom seems extremely knowledgeable about cameras, post processing, composition, photography technique, and especially “travel photography”. He never talks “down” to a student, yet is unafraid of dispelling photography “myths”, patiently explaining the “why” of everything he teaches and demonstrates. His critiques of images are especially unique, as one never feels “criticized”, or “wrong”, and Tom always helps you feel good about your photography ~ a very encouraging coach! I have to believe that you who are accompanying him on his travel workshops this summer, will be more than delighted.

  2. Absolutely Great – as Usual But VERY QUICK Question. Do you process on an Apple MAC – if so what photographic Processing program do you reccommend? (My daughter has a MAC and is very keen on photography as a career). Thank you – (if you have the time?)
