You don’t need expensive cameras or all the latest gadgets to take a worthy photo. 

A Wagga photographer is aiming to show residents that all you need to use is your iPhone to capture the perfect moment.

Selfie art is running rife and social media reigns supreme as the peak platform for photo sharing, but how easy is it to take the perfect photo from your phone?

Wagga photographic artist Jacob Raupach hopes to answer that question with his very own workshop later this week.

“So many people are using phones for photos these days,” he said.

The workshop is targeted primarily at older residents with a view to engaging and advancing their photographic potential.

“It’s really for everybody,” Mr Raupach said.

“I just want to get people thinking about phones and images in a way they might not have considered before.”

The function of light and shadows will be a key aspect of discussion, while time will also be given to sending attendees outside to explore images for themselves.
