Today’s smartphones have cameras with capabilities far exceeding what anyone would have imagined a decade ago. With movies being shot on iPhones to professional photographers capturing their own impressive work using these tiny marvels, the power of these all-in-one devices is astounding.

We all use “Auto” mode but join Mike Croley at this workshop to learn about more detailed settings, framing, using the “Pro” mode, and the tips and tricks to truly unleash the ability of your smartphone.

All set at the beautiful Black Mountain Overlook trail with our variety of wildflowers, sweeping vistas, boulder fields, and uninterrupted views of the Tennessee River Valley – there will be no shortage of moments to capture.

Some Things to Keep in Mind:
–Wear appropriate shoes for hiking.
–Dress for the weather/temperature.
–Bring extra water (and snacks if needed).
