This is an iPhone photography workshop! Sorry Android users!!


Most people these days carry an iPhone or some other type of smartphone giving folks a convenient way via portable, tag-a-long camera that is always within reach to capture a decisive moment, a stunning portrait of a friend or family member or a beautiful scene they may stumble upon. Unfortunately, many people only know the general modes their iPhone offers and then may not even know how to use them fully.
