Smartphone Photography | Beginners
Palermo SMART is a workshop for people who want to upgrade their smartphone photography skills to a professional standard. Although many people today use smartphones instead of cameras, often the potential of these small devices goes untapped. From digital sketches to stunning travel and street photos, everything is possible with today’s modern smartphone technology. SiciScatta helps you unlock the capabilities of your device and explore your own creativity. Palermo SMART will show you how to take photos that are striking and expressive whilst exploring the multifaceted city of Palermo. Here, between colorful street markets and layers of history, you will get in touch with locals and learn more about their culture and traditions. The workshop itinerary includes the historical city center with Quattro Canti, Piazza Pretoria, the Ballarò Street Market, Cathedral and finishes in the Danisinni district; a place of traditions, social regeneration and arts.
The workshop takes place every FRIDAY in Palermo. You can book a half day experience from 9:30AM– 12:30AM or a full day workshop from 9:30AM – 4:00PM.
