Leica is doing a great job with the Leica Akademie North America program. I attended the M9 Weekend with Craig Semetko in December and had a fantastic time. This time around, Leica is offering two one-day programs: an available light workshop and a digital M experience. There are a few spots left in both, but you’ll need to register soon before they are all taken. Other locations like New York City filled up in just a day or two.

[h=2]Leica Available Light Photography – Miami[/h]
Friday, March 2, 2012

This workshop will explore many different types of “available” light. From the natural, ambient light outdoors to making the most of low light indoor situations and even overcoming the unique obstacles involved in night photography.

This hands on shooting intensive experience will provide a foundation to understanding and controlling all types of light.

This afternoon and evening workshop is timed to provide a variety of shooting situations that will challenge participants to apply techniques discussed in the classroom. After a classroom presentation the class will head out to photograph in the streets, making stops at key locations to capture different indoor and outdoor lighting situations. As the light drops, the workshop will focus on night photography working a spectacular location, during the hour and a half before and after sunset.

Participants in this workshop will gain an increased awareness and sensitivity to the direction and quality of light and the technical steps required to capture their vision in camera.
