Academy meets demand for extra D300 slots in Raleigh
Due to high demand, we've just opened up one more session of our D300 workshop in Raleigh for this Thursday, August 7th.
The first session on Friday was completely sold out, so we added an additional session to meet demand. If you are in the Raleigh area this week, then please consider attending the workshop. You can sign up here: www.nikoniansacademy.com.
New SB-900 Speedlight gains instructor's approval, course updates in the works
Have you picked up the new SB-900 flash yet? It is a thing of beauty and represents another solid leap forward in flash technology. One of the best things about the new flash is the much improved user interface that makes it easier to select the shooting modes.
Now we are able to flip a switch rather than go into a hidden menu to change between wireless commander mode or wireless remote mode. Even with the easier to use interface, it is still a complicated system and we are receiving lots of requests for help with setting it up. We are modifying our iTTL flash workshops to incorporate the SB-900 into the curriculum.
Of course, we'll need a few weeks to rewrite the content, but we've got you covered. Look for a flash workshop coming to your town in the near future.
Also on the instructor's training agenda: the new D700
Speaking of new products, the Nikon D700 is an amazing new camera and we've had a few weeks to work with this new body. The FX sensor and the resulting high ISO performance is nothing short of extraordinary. We love the ergonomics, the usability and the speed. It truly is a professional level camera system and we can't wait to start leading workshops on it very soon.
Death Valley workshop coming soon
How does a few days of shooting the austere landscapes in Death Valley sound? This November we have a special four-day travel workshop planned for one of North America's most amazing landscapes. Join Associated Press Photographer Michael Mariant as he leads you through Death Valley's Dante's View, Badwater, the sliding rocks, and Stovepipe Wells. Michael even has a trip planned to one of his secret locations called the Gnome's Workshop. Sign up now at www.nikoniansacademy.com.
