Anyone Want to Take a Class in Cell Phone Photography?

As far as we know, you can't make a career out of taking pictures with your cell phone, but you can take a college course teaching you how not to take crappy photos with one. All you have to do is attend Immaculata University in Philadelphia where communications professor Sean Flannery has made it his goal to teach students how to take the best pictures possible with their mobile phones.

"I think it's part of our responsibility to teach kids how to use this tool," Flannery explains.

According to , Flannery's new class doesn't just teach the technical aspects of taking photos with a cell phone, but the ethical responsibilities that go along with it. Cell phones are everywhere now, and Flannery wants his students to understand "the full gravity of what's at their fingertips and the power they can have."

Believe it or not, Flannery isn't breaking completely new ground here. According to the Huffington Post , New York University offers a cell phone video class, and we wouldn't be surprised if some smaller schools around the country do the same.
