Women’s Shopping Event: March 22, 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. (closing)
In an effort to support women with cameras, Adorama will host a shopping event dedicated to female photographers as well as filmmakers. It will offer savings, giveaways and gift cards. Personal shoppers will also be on hand to assist with questions. Wine and cheese will be served.
We Got This: March 27, 10 a.m.–12 p.m. and 2 p.m.–4 p.m.
“This is the workshop that I wish someone had offered me a long time ago,” said Dorie Hagler. “I learn by doing. A lot of us do. Let us help you get past that initial fear of setting up lighting on your own.” These small, hands-on lighting workshops are limited to six participants and will ensure attendees walk away with a deep understanding of photography lighting techniques. Each person will assemble a lighting setup from start to finish, with an instructor and also assistant on hand. There is a $25 fee to attend.
