Our ubiquitous cell phone cameras have come a long way since they were first introduced and now there are countless apps available to increase your creative opportunities. We will start with photography basics and then take a deep dive into the free app, Snapseed, and, depending on time, touch on other apps that open up avenues of creative exploration that push the boundaries between photography and fine art. (Snapseed is a free cross-platform app, but most of the others are iPhone specific)
