Cell Phone Photography with Mary Karam
Sunday, May 6, 2018, 3:00pm – 4:00pm
A cell phone camera can go where other cameras cannot. You can capture, edit, and share with unparalleled ease and speed. The versatility of the cell phone surpasses all others by switching from TIME-LAPSE to SLO MO to VIDEO to PHOTO to SQUARE to PANO with a simple slide of a finger. Many professional photographers prefer cell phones for certain applications.

Mary Karam is the owner/director of The MK Gallery which was born primarily out of her passion for photography. Others passions are rock/fossil hunting as well as explorative hike in nature for anything unusual, large or small. Even though Karam used an Ansco and a Kodak in the 50's, serious photography did not start till the late 80's with commercial photography classes at Brookhaven College complete with B&W film development and printing, shows, weddings, etc. Nowadays, Karam focuses mainly on wildlife, especially the challenge of birds in flight using a Canon 5D, Mark II. Karam has been volunteering at Hagerman since 2005.

This is a free class, no reservations needed. Please download the app SNAPSEED on your phone prior to the class.
