The Association’s Canon Boot Camp travels to the Palm Springs Photo Festival April 3rd and 4th, at the picturesque Korakia Pensione, which Forbes Magazine called “one of America’s sexiest hotels”. The Korakia is a visual delight, and the perfect setting for our now famous Canon camera classes. While we’ll still be having Pro Level I and Pro Level II classes in Burbank, we couldn’t pass up such a sexy location and the chance to meet other like-minded industry pros.
Haven’t heard about the Palm Springs Photo Festival? Here’s a short blurb from their site about what they’ve got cooking:

On Day One we’ll be training on the 5D and 7D cameras’ setup and operation. Day Two will be a full-fledged shoot day with the Orchard House as our location. The Orchard House offers intimate settings for sensual lighting set-ups and we have planned to let our new graduates practice their skills with a live model.
We’ll shoot by candlelight, moonlight and through gauze overlays to exploring creative lighting scenarios the light-sensitive Canon HDSLRs love to shoot in. One of our recent boot camps specifically dealt with shooting by candlelight, the footage of which may be viewed below.
For a full explanation of what is covered in Day I and Day II, visit the Canon Boot Camp site and check out the descriptions of Pro Level I and Pro Level II (or Day I and Day II, respectively, for the Palm Springs Photo Festival). We’ll be delivering the same classes, it’s just a different location.
Join us in Palm Springs and enter the whole new world of shooting at ISO 1200 with the Canon DSLR 5D! Since we aren’t hosting this event, we aren’t directly registering participants, but you can call us for more specific registration information or just register directly by clicking HERE.
