Don will introduce you to the camera and the technology that underlies its stellar image quality, and then it is on to shoot. The first shooting experience, lead by Don, with the assistance of KSP’s Randy Hoffman, will give participants an opportunity to make nature and landscape images. Following a short break, we’ll pass the baton to Ray who will lead a studio shooting session.

All participants will have the opportunity to shoot their own test images with the camera in both the natural environment and with studio lighting. Don’t forget to bring an SD card (Don recommends at least a 16GB Class 10 SD card) so that you can take home your images to process and study.
