Smartphone photography workshop, Dec. 8

Published 4:52pm Wednesday, December 5, 2012

“The iPhone or similar technology gives us the capabilities of camera, darkroom and state of the art digital lab all in your pocket,” said Pittman. “You can create art images with the touch of a button and the use of a few apps.”

Everyone from amateurs to seasoned pros are welcome. Participants will need their own camera-equipped smartphone, equipped with the following apps: Camera+, Hipstamatic, Image Blender, Juxtaposer, Scratchcam and Snapseed. All will be encouraged to share insights with each other. An experienced iPhoneographer will share her images, her favorite apps and iPhoneography tips. She will cover the basics of taking photographs, and review the capabilities of each app.

“Come and explore the creative possibilities of your smartphone,” Pittman said. “You will be hooked!”

The workshop, which will be held at the Upstairs, is free to Upstairs members. For more information, call the gallery at 828-859-2828, or drop by at 49 S. Trade St., Tryon. The gallery’s hours are irregular this week as preparations are made for “Wonderland,” the Upstairs’ annual holiday bazaar, which opens to the public on Friday, Dec. 7, at 5 p.m. during the Tryon Christmas Stroll. Information about this and other coming events can also be found on the gallery’s website, www.upstairsartspace.org.
