Some women do shoes. I look with misty memories at D-76 and Stop Bath. Then I make a bee line to the DSLR cameras on sale.
A few days ago I wrote about the Adorama video and learning center. It is only fair that I give the home team an equal shout out. Samy's is a photography store in the Los Angeles area.
Samy's has workshops, seminars and product demonstrations at their various locations. There are some mighty tasty items on the current classes and workshop schedule.
The Camera Events page has a listing of all of the instruction happening at the LA and Orange county stores. The prices are reasonable and instruction is often provided by a working professional.

- Digital Filmmaking Bootcamp
- DSLR Video Everything You Ever Wanted to Know
I'd be remiss if I did not mention the temptation factor of spending money in a photo store. If you have a tendency to walk into a photo store and walk out with a camera or camcorder you might have to figure out how to do this and still have a budget.
I'm thinking pay for the class before the session and then leave the credit card at home. Small steps my friends, small steps.
