Do you have a camera? I don’t mean your phone. I mean a real camera. The kind of camera where you can switch lenses. And change settings. And get so hopelessly confused about those settings that your head literally swims when you try to take a picture? I have one of those cameras. It has dials and buttons and so many options that I sometimes sit there and wonder what I’m doing. I know there are classes I can take. Like my life is so leisurely that I can take three or four hours a couple nights a week for a photography class for two or three months.
Well, if you are in the same boat as I am, then Best Buy has a wonderful solution to help you out. Best Buy’s Camera Experience Shop is like a specialty camera store right inside your favorite Best Buy store. They have all the best cameras and camera accessories for you to look at and even try out.
But not only can you try out the cameras, they also have beginner workshops. The in-store beginner workshops give you one-on-one interaction with a Camera Experience Shop Expert that will walk you through all the camera’s settings and get you familiar with the camera so you can start getting the most out of your camera right away. And once you have mastered the basics of your camera, you can proceed to the next step.
No, that next step is not a Paris runway fashion shoot or on the field at an NFL game. That next step is a Best Buy Photography Workshop Tour. Available in select cities around the country, these half-day workshops put you in the hands of a professional photographer to actually go on 4 individual photo shoots. Try out accessories and a variety of lenses under professional guidance to learn how to really get the most out of a camera and take some amazing photos. They provide transportation, lunch and a snack, as well as a bag of camera goodies at the end. For only $50 this amazing experience will allow you to take your photography skills to the next level after just one afternoon. The first workshop tour will take place in Seattle, San Diego, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, New York City and Minneapolis on 7/28. But don’t worry, if you can’t make one of those, they will be having more workshop tours on October 20th and January 19th that you can sign up for.
