Winter Slump? Try A Workshop from Sigma or Tamron

Here in the Seattle area it’s been a grey, rainy winter, and as much as that can offer some pretty photographic opportunities, I’ll admit that I sometimes prefer to just sit inside with a hot cup of tea. If you’re looking for a nudge to get yourself out and shooting, and maybe trying something new, then perhaps one of these workshops from Sigma or Tamron will help (both of them emailed me this morning).

Tamron Sedona & Grand Canyon Workshop: Not Free!

If you’d rather start planning to get some sunshine in the spring, Tamron is sponsoring a workshop in Arizona. It’s not free, but it may be of interest to those of you who want some help with your technical and composition skills along the way; there is nothing that will help you improve your photography faster than working with a group of good photographers. This one appears to be led by photographer Ken Hubbard, Tamron’s Patty Gregitis and Cardinal Camera’s Tony Ulcher.

It’ll cost you $2500, and it’s not until the end of April. You can get full details and/or register at the workshop’s website.
