St. Charles County, Missouri – If you enjoy taking pictures and want to master the art of taking picture-perfect images with your cellphone, then don’t miss St Charles County Parks Department’s Smartphone Photography Workshops, Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., Feb. 20 and April 9, at Heritage Museum, 1630 Heritage Landing in St. Peters.

“Phone cameras have come a long way and are capable of capturing high-quality images comparable to those taken with digital cameras,” says St. Charles County Park Ranger and longtime amateur photographer Steve Tiemann. “Taking photographs with your cellphone has not only become the mainstream thing to do, but also offers unlimited creative possibilities to photographers of all abilities from behind their phone lens.”

Bring your Android or iPhone to one of these free educational programs! Participants ages 13 and up will learn basic and advanced techniques necessary to snap breathtaking photos. We’ll cover principles such as composition, manual control of exposure, file management and sharing, and introduction to editing photos. Bring ideas and tips you’d like to share and dress for the weather. We’ll venture outside to practice some of these newly acquired photography skills.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register or for more information about these workshops, call the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department at 636-949-7535 or visit
