Kensington and Chelsea College launches first iPhone photography course

Kenisngton and Chelsea College in the UK is planning a new course which will be devoted entirely to taking photographs with the iPhone’s camera. The course in "iPhoneography" is thought to be the first ever course of its kind in the United Kingdom.

The college says many iPhone owners struggle to use the camera properly. Students will create images using the iPhone camera and a range of "apps". Tutor, Richard Gray, said: "all you need is a passion for photography and a creative mind." Students are required to have their own iPhone to do the course which will begin next month. "With the right apps and skills, the iPhone can be a powerful creative tool," said Mr Gray. "It is a great levelling force within photography. No longer do you need expensive or complex equipment to produce great images," he added.

Mr Gray is planning on teaching students the basic rules of composition, color and light as well as editing skills using various iOS apps. He sees the iPhone as revolutionising photography by the way it allows you to take a picture, edit it and post it online all within minutes; no matter where you are. Mr Gray will also be holding a free workshop at the Apple Store in Regent Street, London in the near future.

We here at iMore, of course, have been saying that for years. We even have a dedicated iPhone photography forum available for you to discuss the subject, share tips, and start projects. With more to come!

Kensington and Chelsea College launches first iPhone photography course


Really? I mean, seriously? Is this a workshop, or an actual credit-giving course with grades?

I will be an evening course or something like cookery or learning to knit. RBKC run this kind of course all the time. You might get a certificate but the majority of them won't be part of a NVQ or diploma.
Meanwhile yay for my council getting mentioned.

i used the rnoesdw one.. im running 4.3.5 on a 3g but i got it to work i downloaded a theme off it.. i let it restart.. but it got stuck on the apple logo.. i restored it.. jailbroke it again and then it did the same thing.. do i have to downgrade it. i read that 4.3.5 has high security and that it freezes and glitches

Magnificent website. Lots of helpful info here. I am sending it to some pals ans additionally sharing in delicious. And of course, thank you for your sweat!
