Phone Photography Project!

Last year I took the Big Picture Classes Phone Photography Project and was immediately convinced of two things:

1. it was time to finally convert to an iPhone

2. your phone can do so much more than you thought.


Looking back on the photos I took at that time, I’m still impressed with myself.

And while I would love to take all of the credit, the truth is that the class – and the instructors – pushed me to think differently about how I capture the places and things I see every day.

This was especially meaningful last year, as we packed up our city life and moved to a small suburban town. It was bittersweet. And capturing those last moments – a summary of moments that reflect the years we spent in the city we grew to love – gave me the emotional time and space to say goodbye to adopted routines and favorite coffee shops with a gravity and finality. Of course, we still discuss moving back regularly…


When Big Picture Classes announced the second installment of the course – Phone Photography Project 2 – I was all in. The start date – July 17th – was a countdown on my calendar for weeks.

And now it is here.

And I’m SO excited!

If you are interested in this workshop (a workshop I can’t recommend enough!), there is still time to sign up here. Or, you can take the self-paced Phone Photography Project from 2013 here.

Later this week I’ll chime in with my favorite phone apps for editing your phone photos.

I live in a wonderfully small old mill town in New England with my husband, two dogs, and an active toddler. Here on the blog, I talk about living well. Because when we take care of ourselves, we're better at everything else. We're better parents, friends, siblings, professionals, volunteers, neighbors. I talk about this through personal experiences, stories, and through the people and things that inspire me, every day, to be better. To try harder. To live life to its fullest. And to find balance with all of it. So join me as I explore what living a personally sustainable life means to me.

    Wow, I cannot believe you took all these shots from an iPhone! Thanks for the info–I am going to look into the class now!


    • If you know what apps to use, your phone camera can make the most amazing photos! Sometimes i edit my dslr photos on my phone because the apps are that good. I learned so much in that class.. can’t recommend it enough!
