Day 2 At PDN/PhotoPlus Expo

Another day on the floor, in the meetings rooms, and food courts of the Javits Center in NYC.
The PDN/PhotoPlus Expo roared ahead today with what I’ll now call a manageable show.

Sure, the economic conditions are on everyone’s minds, but there are some tools out there that could make your photographic life better.

If you’re a pro you’ll not only get you hands on the hardware, but get some solid marketing tools.
[photopress:TST_0067.jpg,full,centered]Livebooks was on hand to show you how they can set up your website and kickstart your business.

And no matter what your skill level, you’ll dig on all of the pros coming out to shoot, lecture, and tip their secrets to make the stuff you already own, a bit more enjoyable.

[photopress:TST_0096.jpg,full,centered] Elliot Erwit and Alec Soth spoke to a capacity crowd about their work.

Heck, we’re learning tips about gear we use al the time. It’s kinda like the easter eggs in DVD’s. Hidden gems.
So if you’re in NYC, one more day to partake.
[photopress:TST_0066.jpg,full,centered] Boda Bags finds the sweet spot.

And even though B&H, have left the building, you’ll still find retailers and manufacturers offering show specials, so you can save on the gear you’ve been looking at for awhile.

The video camera has been working overtime and we’ll be posting some awesome product demos for you. And a brilliant fine artist, spoke with us, courtesy of HP, so that’ll post soon too.

Here are some more photos from today:

Asuka Books staged their own wedding shoot to teacha few tips on one of the most recession proof businesses in photography.

One more day. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday. And actually put the gear in your hands before you make a buy.
As or me, my dogs are barking, it’s time to set a spell, and review the small mountain of materials collected today.
Don’t worry, it’ll all get recycled.
