When we first started Photoinduced years ago, we knew PhotoPlus Expo was the first stop for us.
As we began the research to build the site, shooting and collecting for years was a plus, but hitting the best trade for photography was key.
It truly is the best place ever to see the gear, meet the manufacturers, listen and learn from the greats, and steep yourself in what may be your strongest passion for days.
Fellow photographers from around the word will come here and you’ll find yourself in conversations.
Like the move to a mirrorless category, or the ..ahem… unique Hassalblad/Sony camera.
Perhaps why the biggest company in photography, Kodak, lost it’s way.
Or the latest in HD DSLR wars.
Strobes? or Constant light? if you shoot video, or plan to, it’s a new consideration.
Panoramas your deal? There’ll be stuff there fro you too.
And gear, my goodness, the gear.
You’ve read about the new stuff, now put it in your hands and see if the hype was true.
Do you need that new camera body, or is that sweet, fast lens going to be the better investment.
How many ways can you rig a DSLR to shoot video AND sound?
You’ll see tripods to steady the shot, straps to hold em, and bags to carry em in.
And there will be the near misses.
Great ideas on paper, but not so in the real world.
We’ll let you know that as well.
Education will represented, whether you are considering colleges with the right photo/media courses, or you learn best from books, or DVD’s. It’ll be here.
We’ll be looking at it all and giving you our 2 cents on the whole deal.
Every time we go, we make new friends, and are happy to see the old ones.
Please make sure you stop by the ICP.org booth.
Near and dear to our heart,they have an amazing collection of books and photo gifts at the Expo. You always have to remember it’s all about the images created.
They celebrate it daily.
Oh, almost forgot! There is a huge party
