PRESS RELEASE: Olympus C-750 Ultra Zoom cameras will be featured on digital photography cruise to Alaska
Compact, 10X Zoom Will Allow Workshop Participants To Photograph Stunning Nature And Wildlife Shots
An 8-day digital photography cruise to Alaska specializing in travel and outdoor photography will have Olympus C-750 Ultra Zoom, 4-megapixel cameras aboard for workshop attendees to use when their scenic and wildlife shots require "up close and personal" treatment.
The cruise is the third in a series offering instruction in photo-digital technologies and embarks from Vancouver, B.C. on June 22nd, cruising the Inside Passage with visits to Ketchikan, Juneau, Sitka and the Hubbard Glacier.
Attendees will learn travel and outdoor digital photography techniques, and have their work showcased in a professionally published book documenting the cruise and its historic ports of call that were the early stepping stones to the Last Frontier.
"Olympus ultra zoom cameras can pull things in close with excellent definition," said Arthur H. Bleich, lead instructor, feature editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and a photojournalist who has shot assignments throughout Alaska. While attendees will bring their own cameras, there are just some situations -like wildlife and scenics- that require extra reach. Using the new Olympus C-750 Ultra Zoom camera will make the difference between a "ho-hum" and an "ooh-ah" shot. The picture quality I've captured with Olympus ultra zooms is phenomenal- sharp as a tack with right-on color."
Seminars, demonstrations, and photo critiquing sessions will be held in an relaxed setting aboard Celebrity Cruise Lines Mercury, a high-tech ship of the Royal Caribbean (RCCL) fleet. Attendees will also have unlimited access to printers on which they can output their work.
Attendance is limited to 30 enrollees so each may receive individual attention and have two to three of their best images appear in the book, one to a page, along with captions and photo credits.
The cruise has been planned to take advantage of some of the longest days of the year, where mellow light extends late into the evening hours, ideal for travel, nature, and wildlife photography.
