iPhone/photography workshop set for Feb. 6

Fernando Porras, who is an internationally-renowned artist who lives in Tryon, will present a hands-on workshop showing participants how to use your iPhone to take better photographs.

This workshop is set for 1 p.m. on Tuesday, February 6, at the Saluda Library.

Porras will guide participants through the tips and tricks to take your iPhone photos to a professional level.

In this workshop, we’ll cover principles of design in photography, hidden iPhone features, and selecting subject matter that’s both inspiring and aesthetic. Stay from 1 to 3 p.m., or, if you’d like, head outdoors with Porras for an additional hour to practice what you’ve learned on the streets of Saluda.

Porras has taught photography at university, and he’s taught this workshop at art schools previously, so he will have a lot of valuable information to share. Porras’ artwork has been exhibited and has collectors around the world, although he is primarily represented in Paris and New York.
