Canvas Press at Imaging USA in New Orleans...The Aftermath...Part 1

by Eric Von Lehmden | January 20, 2012

We are back from New Orleans, and oh what a trip it was. I think the only bad part about the trip was the traffic that we hit getting into New Orleans...the 8 hour trip turned into a 10 and a half hour trip. But after that it was smooth sailing. We met a ton of terrific photographers and everyone was so nice. We answered a lot of questions about our photo canvas prints, our aluminum prints, and where the bathroom was (kidding). It was a very large trade show with some very large printing companies...but I think we did a great job of standing out from the crowd. People could come up and touch the canvas prints and ask us specific questions about the best ways to produce a photo to canvas or photo to metal print. We did get to have some great New Orleans food and checked out a few of the local flavors. Here is a taste of what I caught from just my iphone during the trip. Next week I will share what we caught on our regular cameras...you can tell us which you like better.

Tips-n-Tricks #2

Taking photos of similar objects is a great photo project and often makes for a great collection of art. Find something that you gravitate toward and photograph it whenever you see it. Windows, doorways, & leafless trees are a few examples.
