If you find yourself spending more time taking pictures of your food than actually eating it, but still never managing to capture the perfect shot, you might want to make your way to the Apple store.

As part of “Today at Apple”, the nation’s three Apple stores – Mall of the Emirates, The Dubai Mall and Yas Mall – will be holding free workshops and talks from Wednesday, May 17 until the end of the month.

In an attempt help you navigate through the wide range of categories (there’s music, coding, art and design and much, much more) on offer. Here's our ShortList of classes…

1. How To: Shoot photos on iPhone
The Apple team will show you how to take stunning pictures using only your iPhone (you know, like the ones you see on all the billboards down Sheikh Zayed Road). All you need to do is bring your iPhone and pay attention (your food snaps are depending on it) as they teach you to capture the perfect indoor and outdoor shot.
When: 10.15am-11.15am, Thursday, May 18
Where: The Dubai Mall

2. How To: Edit Photos on iPhone
To help you make your photos look their best, Apple will be exploring some key elements of photo editing using the Photos app for quick fixes or fine adjustments. All you need to do is bring your iPhone and follow the instructions (we’d take notes too). Once you’ve edited your snap, the Apple team will also show you different ways that you can share the photo.
When: 4pm-5pm, Thursday, May 18
Where: Mall of the Emirates

3. How To: Record Video with iPhone
They’ll be covering everything from ways of capturing footage to the different effects you can use to capture your subject (slo-mo, time lapse) to ways of editing the video in post-production.
When: 1pm-2pm, Wednesday, May 24
Where: The Dubai Mall

4. Live Art: Story Lines with Dina Sami
Learn how to illustrate from the mastermind responsible for the Apple’s Dubai Mall mural. Sami will show you how to sketch a unique image that tells a story with one continuous line. All you need to do is bring your iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, if you don’t have one, don’t worry because they will supply you with both.
When: 8pm-9.30pm, Saturday, May 20
Where: The Dubai Mall

6. Photo Walks: Documenting Travels with Yasmina Boustani

That’s not all, she’ll also be showing you how to capture landscapes, street scenes, and portraits using natural light and various framing techniques. All you need to do is bring your iPhone and a pair of comfortable shoes because you’re going to be walking (A LOT).
