In 2012, photo l.a. featured the Emerging Focus Educational series to follow the latest trends in contemporary photography. Following the immense success of the series, Emerging Focus is returning to the LA scene with its very own Emerging Focus Photo Expo that will be held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium & Hilton Doubletree Hotel in conjunction with photo l.a. January 17 -21, 2013.
With the constant metamorphosis of photography, what constitutes as groundbreaking must also evolve. Emerging Focus Photo Expo 2013′s aim is to embody the advancements of photography. Whether the work involves invoking the brilliance of the past for new purposes or exploring new techniques, Emerging Focus seeks out photographers who are breaking the mold of tradition.
This year, beginner, intermediate and advanced seminars have been added to the schedule, focusing on a diverse range of photography topics, such as Adobe Photoshop & LightRoom, lighting techniques, printing and finishing.
There will also be panel discussions, vendor sessions from leading camera manufacturers and equipment specialists, workshops on a variety of photography business topics, and more. Emerging Focus Expo programming will be held next door at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel over two days, with vendor installations uniquely housed in the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.
