X-Rite Photowalk at Photokina 2012

We’re packed and ready to fly to Germany for Photokina and we hope to see you there! This is your invitation to join two great photowalk events we have scheduled just for you!  X-Rite Photowalks at Photokina are a great way to learn and have some fun while you walk the streets of beautiful Cologne. And if you enter your photo you could win great X-Rite prizes including the NEW i1Photo Pro 2.

Each walk is a guided walking tour through the city of Cologne that focuses on teaching participants to take better photos. After a brief lesson on white balance and camera profiling, your guide will escort the group along the route, giving photo tips along the way. At various points along the tour, participants will be given the opportunity to explore an area with their cameras for a period of time, using their newfound knowledge.
