Basic Photography Workshop for Sony Alpha in Malaysia
Who Should Attend: for alpha users and aspiring Alpha owners only!
Duration: 5 Hour(s) 0 Minute(s)
Course is valued at : FREE
Makan : FREE TOO!!
I really learnt alot from this workshop .... alot of things about my Sony Alpha A200 that i didnt know about but i discovered it in this workshop, I never really managed to fully realise the potential of my Sony Alpha A200 until now ... little do I know my Sony Alpha A200 altho considered as an entry level dslr but the features of this under estimated DSLR is anything but "Entry Level".
So, if you ask me whether this workshop is worth it or not ... the Answer is YESH! .... You will get to learn about basics in photography. Something you thot you already knew but you dunno what you missing till u attended this workshop!
Altho Sony called it a Basic photography workshop .... you should really know some basic before going to this workshop because i saw some of the participants struggling to even find the correct buttons to press! What else if the trainer is talking about some of the basic jargon in photography. So, fiddle and play with your Alpha DSLR before you attend the workshop ok?
Also pls remember to enroll early early!!! seats will be snatched up within the same day as they announced it.
Sony had increased the numbers of workshop being held in KL in the month of January, BRAVO! but if they could have more workshops to accomodate the growing numbers of new alpha users according to the ratio of new Alpha Dslr owners that would be even better! I seen alotsa Alpha owners whines and swears just because its almost impossible to get a seat to the workshop. This should be something I sincerely hoped Sony Alpha division should look into.
All in all its a wonderful and very veryy informative workshop! Welldone Sony!
*FYI : Sony is the only brand of DSLR cameras that have free workshop for its DSLR users at this given time.
