Expert Photography Tips From Leaders in the Industry


The PDN PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo is an annual photography event for professionals, students, educators and advanced amateurs interested in the photography and digital imaging industries such as commercial, editorial, wedding, portrait and art photography, among others. The PhotoPlus photography conference includes photography courses, seminars, lectures and workshops taught by some of the world’s finest photography instructors and artists on subjects such as lighting and posing, wedding photography, business and marketing, social media, software and workflow, and video and multimedia.

Attending a digital photography expo could introduce you to expert photography tips and techniques. The opportunity to learn through another photographer’s experience is a rare chance to understand and overcome the common problems that can occur in the photographic process whether shooting, editing or printing. Topics may be broad but generally focus on helping with technical improvements to finding a new direction for your work or even successful strategies for creating a winning portfolio. Some actual seminars included tips to improve your digital photography, portfolio design using an iPad, and pointers for night photography as well as tips for running your business. Topics in classes covering photo shoot tips may include addressing problems that typically occur in the photographic process and what to be aware of; shooting RAW, using your camera’s histogram, adding metadata and calibrating your monitor. Topics even extend to post production such as workflow, color management, editing, image organization and printing. Besides the technical components of photography, do you know the most important factors to consider when quoting fees to your clients? And with the popularity of recording video with DSLRs, how-to video creation is also frequently covered. Expert photo shoot tips can easily be found in a PhotoPlus advanced imaging workshop. Recent examples of seminars on this subject include Twelve Things to Improve Your Digital Photography by Stephen Johnson; Digital Imaging Rescue Techniques by Eddie Tapp; Night Photography: Painting with Light by Lance Keimig; Strategic Estimating by Jeff Sedlik; Beautiful Photographic Prints by Stephen Johnson; iPad Photo Workflow and Portfolio Design by Daniel Marcolina and Matthew Richmond; and Video Boot Camp By Richard Newman.

The PhotoPlus conference is typically structured for anyone to purchase a pass that’s most suitable for their educational needs, available time or budget. The PhotoPlus Conference and Expo is held each October at the Javits Convention Center in New York City and regularly attracts over 250 exhibitors and nearly 22,000 attendees.
