“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 2021 Escapade in Rock Springs, WY. Hands on with your smartphone or tablet, exploring the camera-related features.
“Take a good shot and make it better”
In your pocket you have one of the most sophisticated cameras ever developed, it can do things that Ansel Adams never even dreamed of! 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.
I learned so much in this class! It was like I’d been driving a car for years and just learned about Reverse! I had no idea my phone could do these things.
For people with iPhones or Android phones – 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 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 (iPhone) or 2 afternoons (Android) and you will have homework assignments in between!
Take your smartphone photos from so-so to stunning. For users of Google Photos, we start with basic crop and filters. Then we add the free editing app “Snapseed” and turn your photos into masterpieces. You’ll work with your own phone and your own photos as well as some sample photos from the geeks.
Automatically backup all your pictures for safekeeping by using the Google Photos app. Never worry about losing your phone again. We will also explore the photo editing capabilities of Google Photos and learn about sharing photos by making a shared 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 or your Android phone, and also bring your charger because 3 hours of constant use can drain the battery quickly.
This is a 6 hour workshop, limited to 16 participants. Pre-registration is required including a fee of $59.
