Win a 51 mega-pixel SIGMA sd Quattro H and 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art and learn how to get the most from them with a weekend’s tuition with Pro landscape photographer Lea Tippett
To celebrate the launch of the SIGMA sd Quattro H, we’ve teamed up with Pro landscape photographer Lea Tippett and are giving away to one lucky winner a SIGMA sd Quattro H and 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art lens together with a two day photo workshop along the North Devon coastline. The workshop will include visits to many of the finest coastal photographic locations in the area such as Hartland Quay, Trebarwith Strand and Welcome Mouth Bay.
The workshop will take place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March 2017 and accommodation and meals on the nights of Friday 24th and Saturday 25th March will be included. The weekend is designed for you to learn how to get the most out of your new camera and to give you some great advice on how to take stunning landscape photos. Lea will take you through the principles of successful landscape photography, camera techniques and advising on composition and making the most of available lighting. The lucky winner will be given their SIGMA sd Quattro H and 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art lens at the start of the workshop and one of SIGMA’s staff members will be on hand to answer any technical questions regarding the camera and lens.
The SIGMA sd Quattro H is the world’s first camera to use a 51 mega-pixel Foveon APS-H size image sensor. Unlike other digital sensors the Foveon sensor can capture all colours of visible light at every pixel location. This results in breathtaking detail and colour rendition, making the camera a perfect tool for landscape photography. The 24-35mm F2 DG HSM is part of SIGMA’s Art range of lenses and the wide focal length is perfectly suited to landscape photography.
