AAJA-LA Mobile Journalism Workshop

Oh, what a memorable night. So glad that Maya Sugarman and AAJA were able to document it with their phones. Attendees learned the best tricks on taking fab photos, and enjoyed snacks by Spitz. Meanwhile, Kenu generously donated mobile tripods for the events. 

Here are some photos below.
