When reporters don't have a camera with them they often resort to using their cell phones to take pictures. It can be hard to take good pictures with cell phones and the topic of our next workshop will address how to take better pictures by using phone applications and different settings.

The Camera Phone Photography Workshop will be June 30, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at The Urban Hive. It will be taught by Anthony Bento.
Bento has a B.A in film and digital media from UC Santa Cruz, where he photographed and reported on the 2004 presidential campaign and other political events. He has also worked as a product photographer in New York City and here in Sacramento as a freelance photojournalist for Sacramento News & Review, and as a community contributor to the Sacramento Press.

Bring your phone so we can look at the various settings and applications available for taking photos. In addition to discussing camera phones, Bento will go over the basics of general photography, including the rule of thirds, confidence and lighting. He will answer any of your individual questions about photography or cameras/phones.

If you're only interested in hearing about the camera phone portion, you can show up at 7:15 p.m. instead of 6:30 p.m.

The Urban Hive is located at 1931 H St.

    I'll be there


    for your address or venue

    Google could not return any results for ""...

    Possible reason Try this solution!
    Google unable to find a place or venue name Try checking the spelling, or search for the street address instead (you'll be able to add the venue name afterwards)
    Google needs a more complete address Particularly for small towns, it helps to add a state code. For places outside the US, it might be necessary to specify the country.
    Your Twitter location field is confusing us! If you search without specifying a city name, we'll assume you are looking in the city or town set in your Twitter location. When you've set this to something simple (like "New York"), then this works well, but otherwise, it can sometimes lead to errors. The easiest way to solve this is to add a comma and city name into the search box.
