You’re invited to join Tulsa Photographer, Anitra Lavanhar, and TFA Tours Coordinator, Ellen Stanley, for Tulsa Foundation for Architecture’s first Smartphone Photography Workshop and Walking Tour. In this two-hour workshop you will learn basic smartphone camera technical skills, how compositional principles help make ordinary photos extraordinary, how the right lighting can transform your photos, how to shoot in a variety of lighting conditions, and how to edit your photos using the SNAPSEED app by Google. Tulsa boasts some of the most beautiful and photogenic buildings in the U.S.! During the walking tour portion of this workshop, we’ll discuss the history of several Art Deco, Neo-Gothic and Beaux-Arts wonders as we learn about the elements that define each style, while snapping stunning architectural photos.

This workshop is appropriate for teens and adults with all levels of photography experience. Grab your smartphone and join in the fun!
