Crane Fiesta 2020 is pleased to partner with Sigma and Kristen Ryan

Sigma – Who are they?

“Since 1961, Sigma has worked towards a single, simple goal: To imagine, and develop, the technologies that will allow the attainment of the perfect image. It’s a commitment we’ve made and honored since day one. It’s evident in our collaborative design process that unites R&D, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and service. It’s evident in our standards—above and beyond industry norms—requiring 100% of our lenses to be analyzed by our proprietary ultra-high definition sensors and approved before leaving our factory. And it’s evident in our final products, built with premium materials and known worldwide for quality and performance.

Photography is all we do. And it’s all we’ve done. So you can rest assured that it’s something we know extensively and care deeply about.

You have a vision. We’ve made it our mission.”

Join Sigma and Kristen Ryan in this live webinar:
Wide Angle to Telephoto Landscapes: Capturing the Essence of the Scene
Thursday, November 19th
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Compelling landscape imagery can be created with a full range of focal lengths. From the ultra-wide to the telephoto, the best focal length is the one that captures what draws your eye to the scene and makes you click the shutter. In this class, Kristen Ryan will go through her process for choosing a lens and focal length to best tell the story of a scene. Through descriptions and image examples, she will share how she uses her wide-angle and telephoto Sigma lenses to capture the beauty of the world.

More about Hunt’s Photo & Video

“Three generations of Farber family ownership have established Hunt’s as a trendsetter in the imaging equipment industry. Begun as a pharmacy in 1889 and acquired by pharmacist Solomon Farber in 1952, Hunt’s began building its camera business during the 1950s under the visionary leadership of Solomon’s son, Jack. As interest in photography grew, Hunt’s began shifting its emphasis from the pharmacy business to the business of cameras and accessories. By 1993, imaging equipment became Hunt’s primary focus.

Led today by Jack’s sons, Scott and Gary, Hunt’s proudly serves a diverse audience of individual, corporate, educational, law enforcement, and government clients as one of the country’s largest retailers of photo, video, and digital imaging products.
