For the 5th consecutive year, LifeOmic hosted a wilderness retreat for its employees, which includes those of us on the Lifeology team as well as the company’s other products and solutions. The retreat, located in the Uinta Mountains of Utah, allows for standard wilderness activities such as hiking, fishing, rock climbing, and sitting by the fire. We also participated in some less-standard activities such as plein air painting, archery, foraging—and a photography workshop.
Rebekah Stevens taught the photography workshop, and our team learned a lot of tips and tricks. A handful of this year’s participants had their own cameras and considered themselves well-versed in photography. However, those people still learned a thing or two from the workshop. Others, considered themselves novice photographers and were eager to learn more about taking pictures with the brick in their pockets. Nowadays, most people have pretty powerful cameras built into their phones—it’s just a matter of knowing how to use them. Below, some of the workshop participants from the LifeOmic team bring you some tips and tricks for using your smartphone to take captivating photographs.
