College Introduces Course On iPhoneography

iPhone photography, dubbed ‘iPhoneography‘, seems to be the new hip thing among iPhone users.

It’s much easier to carry your iPhone around to take photos than an expensive DSLR, and with popular apps like Camera+, Instagram, and Camera Bag, you can take equally stunning shots.

Interestingly, a UK college wants to teach its students this new method…

BBC reports that London’s Kensington and Chelsea College is launching a new course to teach students about iPhoneography. The college thinks many iPhone users don’t know how to use their iPhone to take photographs properly.

The course, led by Richard Gray, requires each student to have an iPhone. Mr. Gray will teach students about the basics of photography like color, light, and composition, but will also teach them to use iOS apps to make collages and more.

Along with this upcoming class at Kensington and Chelsea College, Mr. Gray hosts a workshop at local London Apple Store teaching the concept. When the BBC asked Gray about iPhoneography, he responded:

The iPhone is revolutionising photography. It allows you to take a photograph and then process it and and post it online while you are on the bus on your way home.

What do you think about iPhoneography? Is it just a bunch of want-to-be photographers?
