Point and Shoot to Catch the Attention of the Visual-Loving Mobile Community

If you’re like the millions of smartphone users, you’re snapping photos at the spur of the moment and feeding the image to an ever-growing visual mobile community. Capturing a photo and uploading it online is just the beginning of the story. By combining photo apps with some planning and creativity, you can successfully leverage your destination, business and brand in the world of social photography. The 2013 pre-conference will feature a demonstration on effective smartphone photo skills and apps, and how to apply the visual imagery to your social media efforts. You’ll also put your new knowledge to use during a mobile photography walking tour of Memphis, capturing all that best represents the beautiful city.
