Tamron Continues DSLR Learning ProgramJune 16, 2010
Tamron USA, Inc. has just announced the second series of its free learning program that’s specifically targeted at first-time Digital SLR owners, but also likely to appeal to a broad spectrum of shooters including experienced enthusiasts, and those who simply want to continue learning techniques to take better photos.
Every Monday for 12 weeks, Tamron will release an entertaining and informative one-minute episode of “DSLR Know-How with Tamron: Series 201” on YouTube that’s designed to bring picture-takers to a higher level of photographic expression.
"In just one minute per week you can learn important tips to making excellent pictures at no cost,” notes John VanSteenberg, Tamron’s Senior Education Manager. “Each of these one-minute video demonstrations is designed to take the viewers of the first series and newcomers to a higher comfort level with their equipment and photographic techniques.”
The lighthearted, fact-filled video episodes, presented by professional photographer and instructor HYPERLINK "http://www.hubbardphotography.net" Ken Hubbard, who also manages Tamron's seminar and workshop events, cover essential topics such as composition, macro, polarizer use, night photography and much more. All contain a wealth of solid, useful information, and presented in straightforward, easy-to-understand language. The goal is to expand the viewers’ knowledge base as quickly as possible while providing a fun learning experience. We believe that followers who watch the entire series will be able to take their creative DSLR skill sets to a whole new level of picture-taking success.
“The 101 series was wildly popular, and we're now following it up with this ‘201’ series to cover more sophisticated techniques, creating, in effect, a unique easy learning center,” says VanSteenberg.
“The release schedule of weekly introductions allows viewers to try out the techniques and build a base of knowledge that creates a foundation for success. Tamron is acclaimed as a manufacturer of innovative high-performance camera lenses, but we also want to position ourselves as a leader in photo education. That helps raise the bar for everyone, including, of course, our valued customers."
