Class spotlight: iPad/iPhone photography and editing, Athena entrelac

I just got home from teaching a new class at Twisted. It’s Photographing and Editing Your Knits (and more!) with iPad and iPhone. I use my iPad to edit photos from my camera, iPhone, and iPad for all my pattern pictures. People have asked me how I do this, and that’s how this class was born. The class is not just for knitters; it’s perfect for anyone taking or editing pictures with an iDevice.

We talked about how to use your phone (and there are always new tricks that you didn’t know), and basic rules of photography. Then we practiced editing with Snapseed and Instagram. It was really fun and I’m looking forward to teaching this class again soon!

Speaking of which: I’m scheduled to teach at Stash in Corvallis next Saturday. One of the classes is this photography class, and the other is Athena, my entrelac-in-the-round cowl.

Sign up for one or both! I’m also bringing a trunk show so you can see my newest designs. We need a few more people to sign up for classes, especially for Athena, to make this road trip happen. I’m really hoping it works!

If you’re local to Portland, I’m also teaching Athena this coming Monday evening at Twisted. Contact them to register there.

And now for your amusement, Athena! This statue of Athena is at the Parthenon in Nashville, TN. Who knew there was a Parthenon in Nashville? Who knew it was right by our hotel?! We saw it when we were there over Labor Day weekend. It’s a full size replica of the Parthenon in Athens. I had to take a picture knowing that it would be used with an Athena class post.

The statue is 42 feet tall.

The statue of Nike (Victory) in her hand is 6 feet tall.

But I digress. I’m teaching a lot this fall, and hope to see you in one of my classes. Come say howdy!

  1. I was lucky to take the class and Michele gives you a whole new appreciation for your iphone, ipad and free apps! Will be helpful in all areas of photos.

  2. Sounds like you will be happily busy this fall.

    Wish I lived closer to take that photography class. 🙂

    Michele, thank you so much for the wonderful class yesterday. It was beyond terrific. Your teaching style is open, encouraging, organized. I learned so much. After I’ve had a bit of time to practice, I’m hoping that you will be teaching “Photographing Your Knits, Part II.”

  4. Someday I’d love to take your photography class! I basically use my iPad only for taking cards at shows. Crazy, I know
