    Whether you're a seasoned professional or a total beginner, join us for seminar training to learn why Capture One is the industry leading RAW processing and workflow software. We'll start from the very beginning, talking about the built-in features of Capture One which keeps you organized and efficient. We'll walk through the software in a logical progression, touching on just about everything there is to know. There isn't nearly enough time to talk about every little detail, but we'll get you a good jump-start, or a solid refresher.  We'll talk a bit about the theory behind the application, staying organized, file management, tethered shooting, the myriad of tools, a few insider tips & tricks and of course, RAW processing.  If you're already proficient, we're sure you'll walk away with at least one new trick up your sleeve, and if you've never used the software before, you'll leave with a solid understanding and the confidence to start working with Capture One right away.

Capture One Training!   May 1st, 10am to 3:00pm

Either way, walk through the software with the experts & we'll show you how to get your images in & out with maximum efficiency... There's a lot to cover, so come prepared!
