Learn to Use Your iPhone Camera to Take Stunning Photos

Perhaps you just tap your iPhone shutter button and hope for the best. Maybe you think you don't have time to learn to use your iPhone and take better photos. Lessons can be so complicated.  With my iPhone camera guide and photography course, you can learn to take stunning photos in a few simple steps--photos that you can't wait to share.  
Note that all photos on this page were shot on an iPhone. (except as noted)

You can take beautiful photos that connect to others

Why Settle for "Good Enough"?

Technology is confusing.  Photography is an art form.  It can be intimidating. Many people settle for "good enough" photos that stir a memory but never leave their iPhone photo gallery.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if others connected to your photos and felt the same excitement that you did when you took the picture?  Imagine hanging your beautiful photos to greet visitors as they enter your home.

Simple Lessons and Techniques

Taking a great photo doesn't have to be complicated. My iPhone photography course breaks it down into lessons that build on each other. Each lesson is a simple e-book guide with a couple of practice ideas that you can do in your daily life.

Before Barb taught me some easy-to-learn photography tips, I took very mediocre food photos.

With Barb’s help, I’ve elevated my skills and my results to a whole new level! My instagram feed is something I can be proud of!

~ Terri Einbund Harris

I hired Barb Gonzalez to learn photography and editing using an iPhone, Photoshop, and multiple smartphone applications. Barb was awesome to work with! She had a lesson and task for each session, she was a subject matter expert, and she made each lesson clear and understandable.

My Story

The below photos are from my fine art photography gallery and were not shot on an iPhone. 

I've been a photographer most of my life and a professional photographer for the past 15 years, but I earned my living writing about tech in a way that makes it simple for everyone. They called me the "Simple Tech Guru." I think my talent comes from being easily confused, but knowing how to get the answers. That beginner's mind gives me the advantage of seeing things through the eyes of a novice, cutting through the confusion, and explaining in simple terms.   

Increasingly, I've dedicated myself to improving my own skills and tutoring photography. Over the past couple of years,  I've had more and more students who want to learn to shoot with their iPhone.  As I started to learn about the iPhone camera, I discovered new features and decided it was time to help more people than those who could take lessons in person. 

I've watched as my simple suggestions and tips have completely transformed the quality of my student's photos.  They have more confidence and are excited to share their images.  And now you can have it too.
