New York, New York (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Linda Mironti and Michael Mele, Directors of Il Chiostro, Inc, offering arts, culture, culinary workshops and learning vacations throughout Italy since 1995, are pleased to announce The Ultimate iPhone Artistry Workshop with Dan Burkholder, to be held October 14 - 21 in Venice, Italy. The workshop provides a unique opportunity for iPhone owners and photography enthusiasts to experience the beauty, intrigue and romance of Venice, Italy while learning the creative power and stunning output possible from an iPhone from one of today’s leading experts in “iPhoneography” - Dan Burkholder. The workshop will be held October 14 - 21, 2012, and space is limited.
iPhone techniques that Dan will teach include controlling exposure and focus in creative ways, stitching multiple images to create stunning vistas, high dynamic range techniques (HDR) that add tonal lushness to your images, advanced filtration and layering techniques that add a classic, painterly effect to your photos, while learning how to shoot time exposures (for those moody captures of motion) during both night and day and valuable tips for printing, sharing and displaying your iPhone images. Most activities for the week will be organized around the individual iPhone workshops, but all participants will enjoy the unique Il Chiostro experience shared by workshop participants since 1995. "In our arts workshops, participants have the chance to forget about being efficient for a week or two and to concentrate on being creative." said Michae Mele. At the end of the week the artists will stage an exhibit of their work to share their visual impressions of enigmatic Venice. And, for those who want to explore Venice on their own, there is plenty of time for independent exploration
