Nikon School in Metro Detroit

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by D. L. Miller, Oct 3, 2005.

  1. Is anyone going to either of the "Nikon Schools" in Livonia Michigan Nov 12 & 13? First day is basic and the 2nd is "Work flow".
    (I think dates are correct..Might be off one day)

    I know the first day is very basic but I decided to go anyway. Even if I learn one thing, it is always worth the time. Plus a room full of Nikon owners can't be the worst people to be with for the day.

    My main reason for my question... If anyone is going, it would be fun to get together and meet a fellow "NikonCafer".

    Dan:

    How did you learn of this? I wonder if Nikon does it in LA?

    You got the dates for the metro Detroit school right, according to the Nikon website at least.

    I was considering going until I saw the price tag! :eek:

    $119.00 a ticket? Yikes.

    Angelo,

    I learned from an e-mail I got from Nikon. You can go to their web page and register for e-mail. I also think you get asked when you register a product.

    As mentioned in another posting, you can go to the Nikon web page and look up Nikon Schools. I see them in LA all the time. Chicago & NYC are big too.

    At first the price almost chased me away too, but I felt compared to my equipment cost and to have Nikon instructors....lets go for it......

    If it a waste of money I'll be all over this thread to tell the world... But like most things regarding Nikon, I bet it is First Class.. We will see... :smile:

    Thanks Dan. I'll check out the Nikon site. I am registered there (or thought I was) for email but have never received anything about schools. Thanks for the update.

    Would you guys mind posting what you thought of the course after you take it? Thanks.
     
  13. I'm thinking of going on Sunday the 13th for the workflow class. Lord knows I could use it. It would be cool if we could get together for the classes.
     
  14. ** UPDATE ** I just signed up for the Workflow class. Yahoooo

    I attended the basic course in Fremont CA on 11/05. I didn't attend the workflow class. I found it to be enjoyable and informative but I am new to the digital world. A lot of info was talked about and I thought the instructors did a good job. There were handouts and a "class notes" pdf document that basically highlights what they cover.

    One of the instructors used the fire hose for a drink of water analogy. There is alot of information covered. No way you could remember it all or take enough notes. It moves fast.

    Overall, I thought it was good and enjoyed the experience.
