No More Cheese – How to Truly Capture People with Your iPhone, with Rossy Sanchez

Whether it’s a holiday or just an ordinary get together, many gatherings end with the expectation that everyone will come together, smile at the camera, and say "cheese," even if they don’t want to. 

Rather than the obligatory selfie, why not learn to take one-of-a-kind photos of your family and friends--even those who don’t like being photographed--and create unique visual stories everyone will recall for years to come. 

The iPhone makes it easy to capture emotions (Aunt Jessie cackling), document an event (Dad flipping pizza in midair, and where it landed), and tell a story (when the pooch ran off with the grilled ribeye). 

This three-hour workshop will cover iPhone Photos and Camera, the Edit feature, and some basics of photography to help you develop that “eye” that can transform an ordinary shot into an unforgettable memory of a loved one or two.

The class will consist of instruction, shoot time, and editing. I’ll even show you how to compile your photos into videos or slideshows you can share with the rest of the gang. 

You will learn to: 

  • 1.     Light ‘em Up! – Photography is light. Light not only helps capture an image but when applied properly, can make it extremely unique. Learn how to play with light to add depth, character, romance, or playfulness to the same people you’ve been photographing for years. Who knows? You may just start to see them in a different light.  
  • 2.     Get it Together! – You don’t have to wait till you’re in front of the Eifel Tower to take an “interesting” picture. The world is full of interesting backgrounds. Colors and textures abound in nature and in man-made objects; it’s all a matter of perspective. Look for them and use them to create one-of-a-kind photos of your own, even if you are standing in front of the Eifel Tower.  
  • 3.     Don’t Shoot! – Photographing people that don’t like to be photographed doesn’t have to earn you a black eye. In this workshop, you’ll learn how you can capture the essence of someone without necessarily showing who they are. After all, there’s gotta be more to them than just a pretty face. Right?

If you’d like more information about the workshop, or my sense of humor, please feel free to email me at

I look forward to meeting you in February.
