How to take better photos with your smartphone

“Camp Reboot” has come to mean the technology workshop alternative to “RVers Boot Camp” at the Escapees events. If your partner is registering for the RVers Boot Camp, but you would prefer to learn about technology, we are offering two sessions of a special pre-rally workshop at the 58th Escapade in Tucson, AZ.  Hands on with your smartphone or tablet, exploring the camera-related features.

May 25-26 Fri & Sat 9 – noon: Camp Reboot! Hands-On smartphone photography classSmartphone Photography and Google Photos

For people with iPhones/iPads or Android phones and tablets – from beginners to advanced, everyone learns something in this class. If you’ve never taken a selfie, or figured out how turn your flash on or off – not to worry, that’s where we’ll start. The class is hands on. You need to bring your phone or tablet as we will have you exploring and experimenting with all its camera-related features. Like learning to swim by jumping into the deep end, you will have assignments and you will need to discover the way your device works to accomplish them. The workshop will be held over 2 mornings or 2 afternoons and you will have homework assignments in between!

Just a tap on the HDR button produces results that took hours of preparation in Ansel’s day. Don’t know what HDR is? We’ll teach you! Want to show that masterpiece to friends and family around the world? It’s a simple click on the Share button.

Google Photos provides unlimited cloud storage for your lifetime of photos all for free. Automatically backup all your pictures for safekeeping by using the free Google Photos app. Never worry about losing your phone again. We will also explore the photo editing capabilities of Google Photos and make a shared photo album for the class.

The camera in your phone also does more than take photographs – it can file receipts and save them for Tax day, it can scan QR codes, and deposit checks.

This is a 6 hour workshop, limited to 16 participants. Bring your iPhone/iPad or your Android phone or tablet fully charged, and also bring your charger because 3 hours of constant use can drain the battery quickly. Pre-registration is required including a fee of $59, call Kim at the Escapees office: 888-757-2582.

    If I could take this course during the escapade week, I would definitely do so! Are you doing presentations during the Escapade week? The cost of your course seems reasonable, but the added cost of 2 days camping puts it over-the-top of my budget 🙁

      We’ll be presenting four different educational seminars during the Escapade. Check your schedule for dates and times. I’ll put them on our calendar as well.
