Leica classes at Fotofusion 2011

The annual Fotofusion 2011 event that will take place in the Palm Beach Photographic Centre next week will offer four different Leica classes:

Wednesday, January 12, 2011, 11:00 am - 12:00 noon
Introducing the benefits of rangefinder photography and the LEICA M9 with Tom A. Smith
Learn how the Leica M rangefinder system sets the LEICA M9 apart from the market-dominating SLR and compact digital cameras and makes it particularly suitable for vibrant reportage photography, ‘available light’ exposures and discreet portraiture. Tom will explain how Leica M photographers become part of the action and still perceive what is going on outside the viewfinder frame. The decisive moment can be anticipated, and can therefore be captured at precisely the right instant. This results in particularly authentic images that are in no way impaired by the presence of the photographer. Understand how the full frame Leica M9 can help you to become a better photographer. Price: $10.00

Thursday, January 13th, 2011, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
A class of its own: Shooting the LEICA S2 with Tom Smith
Find out for yourself what the buzz is all about.
Tom Smith will present the groundbreaking Leica S system in a studio setting that will allow you to see the outstanding image quality with your own eyes. Developed from the ground up by Leica Camera this new system combines the image quality of Medium Format with the compact size and handling of 35mm dSLRs, creating a new class of camera. Price: $25.00

Thursday, January 13th, 2011, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Available light photography with the new LEICA M9 with Tom A. Smith.

Experience why the world’s first digital rangefinder camera with a full-format 24 × 36 mm sensor continues the legendary heritage of the Leica M system, known for its outstanding available light capabilities. Tom will explain why the M-System is the tool to shoot in low light. Find out why great
photographers like Henry Cartier-Bresson made the M camera their camera of choice. Limit 12 participants. Price: $25.00

Saturday, January 15th, 2011, 9:00 am - 11:00 am
