BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO INCREDIBLE IPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY w/ Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
Join Joshua Tree-based photographer and artist Rose Cefalu for an evening of iPhone photography.

Participants will meet Rose at her workshop and organize a walk to a beloved trail location. Before leaving, you will learn some of the incredible power of the iPhone. She will also talk about design basics, like “Rule of Thirds” and “perspective,” to maximize the potential of images. In the last hour of class, you will edit your pictures in her workshop, print them 8.5 x 11, and mount them in a white beveled 11 x14 mat suitable for framing.

Students will explore the power of image maximizing the iPhone in conventional and unconventional ways.

No prior photography experience is needed; all levels are welcome.

About the Instructor: Every day, you can find Rose Cefalu obsessing over her iPhone photos and over-posting on Instagram. She thinks about traveling, taking pictures, printing imagery, and mixing new colors in her spare time. In 2019 Rose launched a cyanotype workshop to get her “ hands dirty” again and reintroduce this vintage art form to a new audience interested in becoming skilled with alternative photographic processes. Rose has been a guest lecturer worldwide for 12 years as adjunct faculty at the Art Institute of California at both Hollywood and Los Angeles campuses. She is also producing award-winning content at a variety of outlets. Currently, Rose is the Photography Director at Emmy magazine. Her work is on display throughout various galleries and stores in the high desert. She is also a yearly participant of MBCAC’s Art Tours, where she opens her studio and home.
