Are you struggling to learn how to become a better creative photographer? Based on feedback and popular demand, we have created a new workshop titled "Master Your Photography" that is squarely aimed at helping you create works of art. This two day workshop is being led by our own Darryll Schiff who is a professional Fine Art photographer. He has spent many years in the photo industry taking celebrity shots as well as doing commercial work. This two-day workshop mixes classroom instruction with location and field photography. We spend a significant portion of time each day taking photos and then returning to the classroom to download, debrief and critique our images. Darryll shares his wisdom and knowledge by working with you to understand composition, design and the Art of Seeing. Join your fellow Nikonians on this great workshop and learn how to use your Nikon Cameras in the field like a pro!

Turn that inkjet into a powerful professional tool
Also by popular demand, we have created a new workshop called "Master Digital Printing." This is aimed at helping you achieve professional printing results from your ink jet printers. We cover detailed topics such as profiles, printers, Photoshop setups, RAW conversion, color management, uprezzing and soft proofing. Darryll Schiff is a master printer and knows his stuff. Come along to learn from a true professional.

We are teaching the "Master Your Photography" and "Digital Printing" Workshops in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Atlanta. Our September 7th-9th workshops in San Francisco still have seats! Sign up at www.nikoniansacademy.com

Stay tuned next week for an announcement about new workshops in Philadelphia this October.
