For the last several years, digital photography has played an increasingly important role in the conference sessions at
Macworld Expo. Several new photography features have been added for the upcoming show in January, including a class on Apple’s Aperture post-production application.
The Aperture training at Macworld Expo will be the first in-depth public training for the application
since its release in October, according to show organizers, IDG World Expo. The classes, taught by digital photography author Derrick Story, are part of the Power Tools Conference and provide two full days of training.
In addition to Aperture, Macworld Expo will also feature a Digital Photography Day, where industry photographers will teach professional and novice classes on outdoor shooting; indoor lighting and shooting; editing; and organizing and sharing images.
You don’t necessarily have to sign up for classes to learn from professionals at Macworld Expo. This year, in the Exhibit Hall, IDG World Expo is offering a complimentary service where attendees can bring prints, camera or images on flash storage to the digital photography doctors in the Creative Corner of the Macworld Exhibit Hall and let members of the American Society of Media Photographers give pointers.
There will also be a Photoshop Feature Presentation given by Russell Brown of Adobe; a presentation by New York Times columnist, David Pogue; and Photoshop education sessions.
More information on the sessions is available from the tradeshow’s Web site. Macworld Conference and Expo takes place January 9-13, 2006 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
