New Full Frame Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 Di VC USD


Today we received a couple of Tamron’s new superwide 15-30mm f2.8 full frame lenses- one each for Canon and Nikon! This is a must-have focal length for interior architecture and superwide landscape shooters. We shot a few test shots and it’s nice and sharp, even wide open.

Studio Portrait Lighting Class 1/28/15

Portrait Studio Lighting – Wednesday, Jan 28th, 7pm-10pm – Here in the store. $100 per student

This class is taught by Bryan Rierson and touches on all aspects of studio portrait lighting- studio spaces, backgrounds, types of lights, and types of light modifiers. While we will focus on lighting for people indoors, many of these techniques can be applied to object lighting and outdoor photography. You should have a good knowledge of the basics – exposure, shutter speed, ISO, and aperture. If you need a refresher, consider our Photo 101 class held 2 weeks earlier.

Space for the class is limited, so we encourage you to pre-register to reserve your spot.
