Smarter Smartphone Photography

Want to take better photos with your cellphone? 

Kentville is offering a free, three-hour, online photography workshop, hosted by award-winning photographer Bridget Havercroft on Tuesday January 25, 2022 from 9:00 am to 12:00pm.  This is a class for anyone who wants to use their smartphone or android phone to create professional-looking images. You will learn about:

  • Fundamentals of photography
  • Tips and techniques
  • How to hold the phone for taking photographs
  • Exposures and shooting modes
  • Action shots, panoramas and dual lens
  • Editing with simple software, for the final touches

In exchange for this workshop, participants will share some of their photos throughout the year of Kentville with the communications team for promoting the town!  Participants will become the Town's "Photo Squad" - taking photos of people, places, events, and special moments around town.

Participants must have access to a computer and be familiar with using the online platform Zoom, and they must have their own phone during the workshop.  Please register by emailing  Registration closes at 4pm on Sunday January 23.  To secure your place in this workshop, we ask that you commit to sharing some photos of Kentville with us (landscapes, events, iconic buildings, etc).  We will add you to a mailing list for our Photo Squad and will send out photo examples and reminders to share with us.  We also encourage participants to share to the instragram tags @thereal_tok and #kentville.
