The last workshop of the season could not have been on a finer autumn day.  The cool morning mist and overcast sky imparted an extra burst of color to the leaves and lichen.

As with the prior classes, The Art of Phoneography — a free workshop I designed and Weir Farm’s first one ever on photography — had full attendance with participants driving well over an hour from New York City and northern Connecticut.

New material was presented including specifics on setting focus, exposure, and hidden tricks buried within smartphone menus.

Based on the interest I sensed after showing some of my images from Times Square, I asked whether attendees would be interested in a private follow-up workshop on street photography in New York City or Brooklyn.  I was hardly finished asking when I heard a resounding “yes!”  I will be sure to let everyone know if and when such a workshop becomes available.

Until then, please enjoy these photos taken at beautiful Weir Farm.  Encourage each other by posting a comment or clicking “Like.”  Be sure to post the link to the blog on your social media accounts with my hashtag — #xiomaro — so that your photos can be searched and found by attendees from my prior workshops.  If you’re not on social media, then consider sending the link to your friends via email.

In the meantime, I look forward to staying in touch with you all.  I hope to see you again with your friends at next year’s workshops.

  1. The workshop was so much fun and so interesting. Weir Farm is a beautiful place, and it was a great place to spend the day. I learned a lot and can’t wait to to sign up for Street Photography!

    1. Thanks for your comment Janice. I’m so glad you attended and enjoyed the workshop. I’m aiming to do a street photography workshop for early next year and will let everyone know as soon as it is confirmed.
