“The best camera is the one you always have with you”

Tutor Brendan O’Sé at work

This one day, hands-on workshop led by awarding-winning Photographer Brendan Ó Sé will show you how to get the absolute best out of your Smartphone camera.

  • Learn great tips and tricks for better composition and exposure
  • Discover the best mobile photography apps
  • Learn how using apps can develop your own personal style of photography
  • Enjoy the freedom and fun that smartphone photography offers

You will put what you have learned into practice by getting out and about in Temple Bar, Dublin’s Cultural Quarter to shoot photographs under Brendan’s guidance. After the shoot, you will return to the gallery to learn exciting post-production techniques on your own images.

  • Explore dynamic effects with cropping, rotating & transforming
  • Fine tune your images by adjusting brightness, saturation and contrast
  • Sharpen your images to make the subject pop or soften them with lens blur
  • Add filters to create Noir, Retro, Vintage or Grainy looks
  • Create collages by layering multiple exposures
  • Add stylized borders and frames or vignette effects for the perfect finishing touch

Share your fantastic images and boost your presence across your favourite social media platforms.
