|Olympus Ultra-Zoom Cameras Will Go To Sea On Digital Photography & Imaging Workshop Cruise|
Workshop Participants Will Be Able To Shoot Unique Images With Powerful Olympus Lenses That Really Reach Out
MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Olympus digital cameras will be on board an upcoming 8-day Digital Photography & Imaging Cruise featuring workshops for beginning and intermediate photographers. The cruise will embark from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on January 24, 2004 to the Southern Caribbean on Carnival's new superliner LEGEND.
The cruise is the fourth in a series offering instruction in digital photography, imaging techniques, and printing in a relaxed learning environment. Scheduled ports of call include St. Maarten, Barbados, and Martinique, each with a distinctive culture.
Workshop attendees will each receive hardware and software gifts from participating sponsors valued at more than $800 and will be able to use Olympus Ultra-Zoom digital cameras to shoot scenes that would be impossible to capture using most other digital cameras.
"Olympus Ultra-Zoom cameras open up a whole new world of photography," said Arthur H. Bleich, lead instructor for the cruise and feature editor of Digital Camera Magazine. "On our last workshop cruise, attendees kept commenting on the brilliant color and image sharpness these cameras produced when used to photograph scenics and wildlife, and also how well they softened distracting backgrounds when shooting portraits."
Up to 30 beginners and intermediates will participate in lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on use of a wide range of equipment. They will also take photos, have them critiqued, and print them.
Attendees will be able to upload their pictures to their own website or send them via email to friends and family anywhere in the world through the ship's state-of-the-art satellite facilities which allow transmission while the ship is at sea.
