Kit Frost: The iPhone – So Much More Than a Selfie
September 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Today’s smartphones include a wide variety of apps for image making. Photos, videos, time lapse sequences are just a small sampling of what is available for using your phone. Kit Frost uses her phone as a sketchbook, as a digital camera, as a video production tool and for time lapse photography. This workshop is designed to teach you to use the camera that is most often with you, your phone. Kit will demonstrate the simple techniques needed to take terrific photos with your smartphone. Participants will learn how to use your phone to make photos, including panoramics and timelapses, and create short video sequences.
Kit Frost lives and teaches photography workshops in Durango, Colorado, and throughout the West. She has served as an artist-in-residence in a dozen national parks and monuments. She draws inspiration from the work of Thomas Moran, Ansel Adams, Christopher Burkett, Georgia O’Keeffe and Brett Weston, sharing an affinity with the monumental aspects of the American landscape and a dialog with light that is ever-changing and elusive.
Whether capturing still images, recording time-lapse and video sequences or chasing the light at our national parks, Kit Frost’s preferred work method is to explore landscapes over an extended period of time in order to capture the essence of each location throughout the day and into the night.
Often found working with her iPhone, Kit’s belief is that the best images are not created by the camera but by the passion and vision of the artist behind the lens. Since serving as Artist in Residence at Acadia, Crater Lake, Glacier, Capitol Reef and Mesa Verde National Parks, Kit has been recording time lapse, video and still sequences with her iPhone and helping visitors gain a better understanding of the simple tools on their smartphones.
