Isabelle will show us how to curate, condense and edit them so they are easy to locate, appreciate and share. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of ever-changing technology and the inspiration to achieve their photo-organization goals.  Methods and services that are available for storing digital images will be discussed.

Smartphones are becoming more and more sophisticated, but who has the time to learn all their new features? Isabelle Dervaux, professional photo organizer, will show you tips on getting the most out of your smartphone camera and understanding what's new and useful. Isabelle has reviewed thousands of her clients’ smartphone photos and from this process has developed a workshop presentation that will address such questions as:

    •    How can I improve my smartphone photos?

    •    Why do I end up with so many burst images?

    •    Live photos, what’s that?

    •    Why are my photos so grainy?

    •    Why are my photo prints so disappointing?

    •    What the heck is HDR?

Isabelle will also discuss how to mindfully observe the world around you and patiently take photos you will love instead of just aiming and hoping that the more you shoot, the better the photo. She will go over the basics of light and composition so you can get better pictures that you can post with confidence and share with pride.
