“Very down to earth.  Great teacher!  For all levels of photographers.
Well worth the drive.  His teaching skills are first-class.”

The best camera is the one you have with you, and these days that’s your smartphone.  The secret to better photographs is less about the camera, and more about applying the principles of seeing used by artists for centuries.  Photographs and paintings will be used to introduce key artistic principles and show simple ways to capture outstanding photos with minimal technical know-how.  We will also cover some of your smartphone’s features to get the most out of the images you create.

Then you will go out to apply what you have learned.  You can photograph the beautiful interiors of the church, its historical exterior and grounds, or the Morristown Green across the street.  Afterwards, we will meet up again briefly inside for any final Q&A and to select a winner to receive one Xenvo Squidgrip Tripod (List Price: $59.99).  Photos from the day can be posted by attendees on the Photography with Xiomaro Facebook group page so that we can all see what was shot and to learn from each other’s way of seeing.
