Tech Savvy Seniors – Introduction to Photography for Android Smartphones and Tablets – Sydney

Once you have a smartphone or tablet, you can take as many photos as you like, without any additional cost. So what new opportunities does this offer? Have you considered how to handle the mass of photos this may result in? What if you lost your phone with all your holiday snaps on it?

This course is suitable for people who:

  • Have a smartphone or tablet and want to unlock its potential in taking photographs with the camera function.
  • Are going on holidays and need help understanding how to take good photos, how to manage a digital photo album, how to download and store photos.
  • Are deciding between using their camera/tablet’s phone or purchasing a more powerful camera (SLR or DSLR etc).

This course is for those who have an Android Smartphone or Tablet (eg Google Pixel, Samsung, HTC, Huawei, Nokia, LG, Lenovo, Razer, OnePlus, Sony and more). For those who have an Apple iPad or iPhone, please attend our ‘Tech Savvy Seniors - Introduction to Photography for Apple iPhones and iPads’ course.
