What you'll do

We all know that our iPhone is SMART but the camera is a GENIUS! It doesn't take long to make you as smart as your camera! In two hours we can improve your photography skills and make sure you're taking pictures that will end up on the wall, not just on the screen. There is nothing worse than getting home from a vacation and not having your pictures truly tell the story or capture the beauty that you experienced. I want to make sure you have the photographs that capture the soul of Kauai and your time here. 1. Selecting and controlling the focus. 2. Controlling the exposure - lightning and darkening the image. 3. Portrait Mode. (7+ and newer.) 5. Utilizing air drop to share your images. Understanding these things doesn’t take long and will improve your photo’s immensely! As we walk from the Pavilion the the Pier I’ll give helpful hints regarding lighting and composition. When we get to the Pier, (about 15 min walk) we’ll take time to make sure you’re getting the hang of things as well as go over simple editing tools. 1. Using the auto correct. (It actually works great) 2. Change your image from color to black and white. 3. Altering the brightness and the contrast. (giving a bit more punch.) 4. Changing the depth, and lighting effects in iPhone X. Once back to the Pavilion I'll be available for questions. I am also happy to share my locals knowledge of the island

Adria

My name is Adria Ellis, and I am a travel photographer. I take small groups of people to Cuba on Photography tours. My work has been exhibited internationally and my tutorials are included in mobile photography guides and books. I ditched all my heavy gear, long lenses and tripods about 10 years ago. I have been shooting with my iPhone professionally for 10 years. When I am not in Kauai I am traveling. Everyone can learn to take professional looking photographs with their iPhones. I love teaching, and helping people learn to take photographs that will end up in frames.

What's included

Equipment
I'll bring extra umbrellas, water, sunscreen, and a large blanket to sit on as we finish up. You really don't need much at…

Where you'll be

Our experience will start at the Hanalei Bay Pavillion. We will use the shade of the Pavilion to go over the basics, then we will take a short beach walk to the Hanalei Pier. Once again we will have cover from the elements so we can go over the images we have taken and look at editing tools. Make sure you are prepared for sun or rain ;-)

Things to keep in mind

More tips

Make sure your phone is fully charged and has room to take pictures. Our time together will change a bit according to the weather. It's not a problem. Water ! Sunscreen! Kauai and I will do the rest.
