In this two part workshop, you will learn how to take better photos with your smart phone and get the lowdown on promoting yourself on Instagram.
The morning’s session with Sarah Weston will look at smart phone tips and tricks to create stand out photography of your work which can be employed across online selling platforms, grant applications, media and communications. Sarah will cover editing images specifically in the iPhone Photos app, however she will also look at different third party apps which are available on both iPhone and Android systems.
In the afternoon, Annelies Hofmyr will guide you through some proven Instagram strategies to build your brand and discuss ways to maximise Instagram’s algorithm (i.e. get more followers!).
WHAT TO BRING:
- 2-3 pieces of your work
- Your fully charged iphone/smartphone with an Instagram account already set up.
- A notebook, pen and your imagination.
