O'Reilly Authors Off to NYC's PhotoPlus Expo

Sebastopol, CA--At O'Reilly, we're always looking for new ways to inspire and connect to creative minds. And that's why we're excited about attending PDN’s PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo in New York City next week with eight of our top O'Reilly Media authors and digital media experts.

There, O'Reilly author Katrin Eismann plans to share the secrets the best retouchers use to create flawless skin in her seminar titled "Skin, Skin, Skin." David Pogue, O'Reilly's Missing Manual series founder, will deliver a keynote talk about his four-month quest to determine, once and for all, just how important megapixels are in a digital camera. O'Reilly authors/photographers Julieanne Kost, Mikkel Aaland, Stephen Johnson, and Peter Krogh are also included in an exciting roster of speakers offering inspiration, straightforward insights, photography tips and tricks, and encouragement in seminars during the expo.

This stimulating three-day photography conference--the largest ever and the most comprehensive--opens at NYC's Jacob Javits Convention Center on Oct. 17. During the confab, Derrick Story, O'Reilly's digital media evangelist, plans to transform the O'Reilly booth into a live podcasting studio. He'll be interviewing our authors along with some surprise guests.
