Cell Phone Photography Workshop, Saturday June 29

June 1, 2024

Did you know that more photos are now taken with phones each day than used to be taken with traditional cameras in a year?!?  This short introductory class will be helpful for people who want to learn more about how to use the camera in their phone, and how to improve their photos.  Composition is one of the most important factors in taking good photos and is a main topic that will be discussed.  We will also talk about how cameras work, basic concepts in photography, photo editing, and what you should do next.  Please bring your phones and your questions to the class.


About the Instructor
Ken Goldman is a retired engineer, photographic artist, writer, and traveler living in Portsmouth, NH.  Since he moved to Portsmouth, he has been using his cameras to learn about, and document, his new home.  Ken has always wanted to express himself artistically, but he dances like a rusty robot, sings like a frog with a sore throat, and can't even draw a stick figure; so, he decided to try photography.  Photography provides him with tools that allow him to express himself artistically and creatively in a way that he enjoys.   Like many other photographers, Ken was initially a nature and landscape photographer.  Today, even though he typically shoots whatever is in front of him, his current focus is street and urban photography.  Ken’s photography has been exhibited in many locations along the Seacoast.  You can currently see examples of his photography in Reflections of Portsmouth at the Foundry Place Parking Garage, the “Matter of Memory" contemporary exhibition at the Portsmouth Historical Society, and the Kittery Art Association’s Through The Lens exhibit, beginning on June 6.
