Advanced Tilt/Shift Lens Workshop

Dave Henry
September 17, 2017
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
$99 Hands-on Workshop
Canon Live Learning San Francisco

Suite 100
San Francisco, California 94111


Tilt-shift lenses offer photographers specialized tools to make significant corrections and adjustments to their photographs at the moment of capture. Many photographers mistakenly feel they can use software to make these corrections without losing quality. That can’t be done so it’s best to learn how to do this in your camera. 

Join photojournalist and Live Learning instructor, Dave Henry, as he teaches all five movements of the tilt/shift lens and shows you how to calculate exposure and create an image no other lens can create. 

This shooting workshop teaches you how to visualize the end result image and then shows you how to achieve it. 

The most sought-after skill with a tilt-shift lens is how to create the “infinite depth-of-field” photograph. Dave will teach you how to do that with both tilt and swing movements. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn from Canon’s master of tilt-shift photography. Dave’s tilt-shift lenses are his most used lenses and he never leaves home without them. 

This is an advanced class. Camera handling and general photography competency are expected. That will allow you to more fully grasp the new concepts you’ll be learning in this class. 

Workshop space is very limited for better accessibility to the instructor so sign up now!
