Neal Augenstein will offer a "how to" session on everything from reporting to recording with the popular iPhone! Mark your calendar: Friday, January 30, 2015 at 9:30 AM (EST) at the National Press Club Journalism Institute in Washington, DC.
You'll learn: what iPhone reporting is; what equipment is needed; how to turn a iPhone into a microphone; how to record and share audio; basics of shooting video; and how to create content on mobile, for mobile. The session will include suggested apps and resources, a hands-on walkthrough and time for Q and A.
Augenstein is the Technology Editor and Reporter with WTOP-FM and wtop.com – the all-news powerhouse in the Nation’s Capital. Neal started as a general assignment reporter at WTOP 18 years ago.

One of Neal’s earlier iPhones is part of the Newseum’s permanent collection, in recognition of his work leading the way in mobile journalism.
