205 - BYOD: Leveling Up Your Mobile Photography Game
It is incredibly easy to take a photo with your smartphone or tablet. Point. Shoot. Done. And that ease makes it worth considering doing your own photography for some projects. But what perplexes many is how to take a good photo. In the age of "pictures or it didn't happen," a good or great photo can make the difference to illustrating the information you need to, securing funding for a current or future L&D project, or properly documenting important safety information for workers out on the field.
In this hands-on session, you’ll learn 5 key basics of smartphone and tablet photography to help you take better images yourself. You’ll then immediately apply those basics as the session will move from the classroom to the real world through a Photo Walk. A Photo Walk is a hands-on approach to learning how to take photos by simply going for a walk and taking pictures. You’ll visit designated sites within the venue to practice your new skills and get feedback from your instructor and peers.
In this session, you will learn:
- 5 key elements that can make or break a photo
- How to find a good composition, even when you think there is none
- What equipment you can use to help elevate the visual value of your photos
- How to use your photos for your training projects
- To define your photos with curated apps
