MELVILLE, N.Y., May 29, 2014 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has kicked off its Canon In Action Tour, an educational roadshow ideal for advanced amateur DSLR users and filmmaking enthusiasts. The tour includes live-learning seminars and workshops in several major U.S. cities now through November 23, 2014.
Tour attendees will have the opportunity to take part in an in-depth Imaging Essentials Saturday seminar, and/or intensive Sunday training workshops for a nominal fee. The classes are taught by renowned professional image makers Jack Reznicki, Jim DiVitale and Amina Moreau. Reznicki and DiVitale are full-time professional photographers and members of Canon's acclaimed Explorers of Light program, and Moreau is the co-founder of the Emmy® award-winning Stillmotion production company.
Each Saturday seminar covers still-imaging topics ranging from lens selection and composition, to understanding histograms and flash photography with Canon's versatile Speedlite system. Throughout the seminar, video recording topics and techniques will be incorporated, simultaneously introducing DSLR video to traditional still-image shooters, and providing insights for EOS photographers who have already begun to include video in their imaging.
The Canon In Action Tour Sunday workshop offers participants a choice of two all-day, hands-on workshops: Speedlite Intensive or Exploring DSLR Video. Speedlite Intensive participants will be instructed on wireless flash operation and using cost-effective light modifiers to create professional-quality images with depth, dimension and detail. In the Exploring DSLR workshop, attendees will learn DSLR video shooting techniques, discuss the application of various in-camera video settings and learn how to apply the concept of visual story-telling to transform their finished video. With attendance limited to 20 people per workshop to maximize hands-on opportunities, both Sunday workshops present participants with a wealth of opportunities to learn in-depth techniques and develop their craft.
Canon technical representatives will be on-hand at all seminars and workshops to demo equipment and answer questions on Canon products. A full schedule of cities and dates for the Canon In Action tour is available at: inactiontour.usa.canon.com.
