Event description

Description

Informative class + hands-on experience

Learn how to make better images whether for publication or personal use with Sigma representative, Aaron Norberg! This class will help improve your photographic skill, execute your artistic vision and turn documenting into storytelling. We will cover lens selection, composition and how to utilize depth of field and shutter speed to create interesting and engaging imagery while abroad or near home.

The morning will begin with a travel presentation held at Pro Photo Supply's Event Center where loaner equipment will be available for check-out. Then, we'll venture to Sauvie Island for guided photo walk where you will receive hands-on instruction by Sigma & Pro Photo Supply representatives! Attendees will be free to follow the group or take off on their own at their discretion. Please bring your camera; the gear provided is available for trial use and is first come first served.
