“Luminance 2012 will be an opportunity for the community to come together around a new topic of discussion that isn’t strictly gear or technique,” said Murabayashi. “It’s a chance to engage in a dialogue with others who are creating the technology that’s driving massive shifts in the photography landscape, to learn from each other, and get inspired about what is still to come for this medium we all both love with passion and equally depend on for our business and livelihood.”
A limited number of hotel rooms have been reserved for Luminance 2012 attendees. Learn more about conference logistics and register to attend at http://photoshelter.com/luminance.
