Art of Phoneography Workshop

Want to learn how to take better pictures with your cell phone?

Nationally-exhibited photographer and published author, Xiomaro, is offering a special “Art of Phoneography” workshop for on Saturday June 22 from 9:30 am to noon in our chapel. The workshop is open to members of our church, as well as members and friends of the Morristown Chapter DAR and Jockey Hollow SAR.

They say the best camera is the one you have with you, and these days that’s your cell phone camera. Xio says the secret to better photographs is less about the camera, and more about applying the principles of seeing used by artists for centuries.

Xio will use photographs and paintings to introduce key artistic principles and show us simple ways to capture outstanding photos on our cell phones with minimal technical know-how. He’ll also show how to use some of your phone’s features to get the most out of your photos. Then we will practice our new-found skills to take pictures of the church and its grounds and the Morristown Green.

Xio will review his first workshop from 9:30-10:00, for those who missed it or want a refresher. Then he will delve into new material starting at 10.

Participants should bring their fully-charged smart phone (any brand) or camera with plenty of available storage space for the new photos that they will create. A portable USB phone charger or spare battery also will be helpful. There is limited handicapped parking at the church, and plenty of public parking for a fee around Morristown and in the garage under Headquarters Plaza (next door to the church).

The cost is $25 per person. We can accommodate 20 workshop participants, first-come-first-serve, and will maintain a wait list and are considering possible additional sessions if interest is high.

You can visit Xio’s website at xiomaro.com to learn more about him and his photography. Please contact Bobbi Bailey at baileysr@gmail.com or 201-738-6539 to register or if you have questions.
