Tech Savvy Seniors – Introduction to Photography using Smart Phones and Tablets – Sydney Course

Once you have a smartphone or tablet, taking a photograph costs you nothing. 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 and all your holiday snaps were on it? Maybe you’ve just got a smart phone or a tablet or maybe you have never owned one but are curious about what you could do with such a device when taking photographs. Or maybe you are going on holiday and considering if your smartphone will be up to the task of recording your journey, or should you get a small digital camera or take a more powerful camera such as your old SLR or a new (Digital) Single Lens Reflex (DLSR) camera. Or maybe you have a smart phone or tablet and are just looking to learn how you can use it more fully.
