The workshop started with phone photo theory.

At Museum Nord, we work continuously to increase competence in various disciplines. During the winter and spring, a number of workshops are held with the market group. Here we take a closer look at external activities, such as how to take good pictures with your mobile phone.

Participants got to try photographing people in different types of light.

The background for the workshop is that the mobile camera is the camera you always carry in your pocket, and therefore it is very useful to learn how to best use the different functions of the mobile camera, as well as how to think in relation to light sources, angle of light and background, among other things.

In the next part of the workshop, participants were challenged to take a photo that could be used in three different ways on Instagram as a post and story, and as a post on Facebook. It resulted in several creative solutions!

One of the participants’ suggestions on how to use the same image in three different ways on Instagram posts, story and Facebook posts.

The last task at the workshop was to create a Reel (video post) on Instagram. Now, participants got to work in groups to practice filming and editing video clips to post on Instagram.

Fortunately, the weather improved until the participants were driving home. Thanks for a nice workshop!
