June 30 Camera Phone Photography Workshop

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.

We have a panel scheduled for Tuesday, June 22. Information for the Paying for Content Panel can be found here.

Pleasw RSVP for either event by e-mailing workshops@sacramentopress.com.
