Basic to advacned smartphone photo sharpening mini course - smartphone photography training

There is nothing worse than the feeling of taking the perfect photo… and later realising that it’s out of focus, blurry, soft or lacking clarity.

I’m here to tell you the TRUTH you need to know about capturing tack-sharp details on a smartphone. The biggest problem you are facing now is you take the perfect photo and are then underwhelmed by the sharpness and clarity. It looks soft and lacking in detail.

That’s not the worst part. You accept that result and blame it on your camera and desire an expensive upgrade! It’s not your fault. Manufacturers spend millions to convince you to upgrade.

But, lucky for you, I have created a smartphone photo sharpening mini-course. You will learn to use the best apps and techniques to squeeze all the details as you can out of your existing photos - without the technical jargon.

* This mini-course is step 5 of the Blurry to Tack-Sharp Photos: 4-Step System - more details here.

Is this you?

Capturing soft and flat photos brings up feelings of self-doubt, frustration and being underwhelmed with the results. This leaves us blaming our smartphone, believing it is too old, the screen is too small or limited in features.

You understand the basics of photographic intention, storytelling and composition. However, you find yourself checking and deleting blurry, bad photos clogging up your phone. You are missing out on the potential of your photos and you as a mobile photographer.

It is not your fault! Your smartphone camera does a great job of recording the scene in front of you. To achieve this even the most expensive smartphones automatically select settings that do not prioritise sharp focus.

Imagine this

Imagine feeling confident and satisfied that you can create beautiful tack-sharp ‘big’ camera photos on your existing smartphone... without having to upgrade your phone.

Once you learn photo sharpening editing techniques on your Android or iPhone, your photos will look amazing online and printed, hung on your wall. You will know the secrets to why, when and how to use the tools inside my recommended editing apps for professional results.

Using these easy to follow tools and techniques will make details absolutely jump off the screen!

If you have a low-resolution camera the results will be even more transformational. Using photo sharpening techniques, companies like have been printing 120’ photos since 2012.

The apps recommended are available on all devices... And you do not need to subscribe to use the tools!

Rocio Lopez

Mike is a very engaging speaker and explains things in a way that is easy to grasp. He is always working on new courses and content. His passion for photography shows in everything he does and is very contagious.

“My friend and I attended your workshop and are both studying a Diploma in Photo Imaging. We wanted to do a fun activity at the Waterfront and learn a different style of photography. We were absolutely astounded how much we can do on our phone. You showed us more practical stuff in one hour than we have learned in six months at XXXX. I don’t want to finish my course now! I had no idea I could do almost anything Photoshop does on my iPhone! "


“After selling my DSLR some time ago, I was looking to see how to make better use of my mobile phone camera. I would highly recommend the course as it is very well structured and avoids unnecessary jargon.  Each section is very practical and examples are clearly explained in the videos.  I felt encouraged to apply the new skills right away. I had very little experience in photo editing and this course has really opened my mind. Mike is very approachable and provides constructive feedback throughout."

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to a basic understanding of photography first?

This course is designed without the assumption of any prior knowledge. We start at the basics and support you along the way to the more advanced techniques and tools. You can post a question to Mike directly or to our private Facebook group, where you can help others with the answer.

What if have an older phone, iPad or Tablet?

That’s ok. This course has two main sections, photo capture and photo edit. One of the key differences with this course is that is not reliant on the latest gear or apps. You will learn about the perception of sharpness and lots of strategies. 

Which apps do you use?

The main app demonstrated is Adobe Lightroom mobile app. If your mobile device does not support the app, I am happy to provide a refund for your enrollment investment.

How long will the course take?

If time is an issue for you. You are not alone! I have included a replay of a Live 1-hour webclass that covered all the content in the course. You can then refer to the course on for more information on each topic discussed.

The course contains text and video lessons. If you are a Netflix binge-watcher, then you could easily get it done in a weekend! You also get access to our Facebook community for continued project and community-based learning long after you finish this course.
