About: Join Los Angeles based photographer Joey Carman, Leica Product Specialist Ray Olson, and Leica Akademie Instructor Philip Cuenco as they guide you through the process of using your SL2 at an intermediate/advanced level.

The workshop will also be taking a tour into the use of Capture One 21 and it’s tehtering capabilities with the SL2.

Who should take this workshop?
Current SL2 Owners intermediate to advanced levels and anyone interested in learning the SL2 with components beyond the camera system, will benefit from this program. This class will benefit both professionals and Leica SL enthusiasts who have acquired an SL2, and in transition trying to “cross over” from their previous or current camera system. Joey’s personal journey & workflow from switching to the SL family in his professional workflow will help others who may be in the same position he was in when he first started with his SL.
New owners of the SF-60 & SF-C1 system will also benefit from the workshop as Joey will be discussing ways to modify and optimize the lights for various uses and setups.
Requirements/pre-requisites: This is an intermediate/advanced paced course. Students must have a solid understanding of photographic terminology & dialogue, fundamentals & the ability to demonstrate navigating through the SL2 system confidently on their own. We recommend attending the SL2 Owners (Part 1) course if you are new to the SL and professional camera systems in general .
Students must have ZOOM installed and running properly on their computer before the class day. Installation & operation videos are available online through the zoom website.
Having an SF-60 & SF-C1 not required, but it may help if you have questions regarding your flash unit.
Part 3 of the series, coming later this year, will be focused on the “video” segment of the SL2 and newest member of the SL family, the SL2-S.
