The first workshop by Mark Grealish will dive into quick-draw photography: The rules of how to compose a photographic scene, mindfulness in taking a picture, awareness of your surroundings, and how to quickly draw, snap, and put away. We will also cover workflows for getting the best finish out of an image on mobile devices and archiving images.
