Sony Photo Workshops

If you’re interested in making great photos with your Sony Alpha or NEX Camera but aren’t sure how to get started, or aren’t happy with the results you’re getting, maybe you would benefit by attending one of Sony’s Photography Workshops.

This one hour, hands on workshop for photographers who have already purchased a Sony camera, will give you the basics and help you get started making better photographs. Great lighting, which lens to use and how to work with your subjects will all be covered, and you’ll have a chance to try out the latest equipment on your NEX or Alpha camera.

The Workshop runs three times during the first week of October at various Greater Toronto Area Sony Stores. Although it’s free, there are a limited amount of time slots so book one today and remember to bring your camera and a memory card so you can take part in this hands-on shooting event.

The workshop runs Tuesday evening October 2, 2012 at the Sony Store at the Toronto Eaton’s Centre. Contact the store to book your place at or 416-971-7589.

The same workshop is repeated Wednesday Oct. 3, 2012 at the Sony Store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Contact the store to book your place at or 416-847-0573.

Once again, the workshop will be repeated Thursday Oct. 4, 2012 at the Sony Store at Upper Canada Mall. Contact the store to book your place at or 905-836-5732.

  1. Hey buddy, I just found your blog and am enjoying the pics! Just wondering about your thoughts on the 70-200G with the A99. I am relatively new to photography and was going to get a few other cams (A77/NEX7/OM-D)but decided to wait for the A99. The only other problem for me is lens selection. I am thinking the 70-200G would fill most of my needs. I am wanting to shoot headshots and other modeling pics with plenty of bokeh as well as lots and lots of video. My other thought was the Zeiss 24-70 but I've been reading that the bokeh is not real good on that one. I know it's sort of a lot for a beginner but my theory is spending more now (smartly) will keep me from spending WAY more in the future by having to upgrade and such. One more thought... I read somewhere that the 70-200G is a bit soft at 2.8 is this true? Every pic you have on here looks razor sharp.

  2. The SAL70200G is a great lens. I was using it today, but the lens you should look into is the Zeiss 135mm for the Sony. It's in a class of it's own. You'll never get the performance out of a zoom that you get from a prime, plus it's a stop faster and gives a wonderful look.
