Star Shooters on Tour
Straight Talk from O'Reilly's Digital Photography Masters

Sebastopol, CA—It makes total sense—with prices of digital cameras rapidly shrinking—that more folks than ever will be wrapping and unwrapping these fervently craved devices in the weeks to come. Yes, such pixel-packed stocking stuffers possess seductive new features—yet trying to create artful and arresting images straight out-of-the box can be frustrating.

Happily, next month digital camera enthusiasts traveling to and in northern California can cure the digital blues and get their photography questions answered at a pre-Macworld bookstore reading and Macworld events: oreilly.com/go/macworld2007

On Jan. 7, a team of O'Reilly Media's best-selling authors kicks off an event-jammed week with an "Ask the Experts" panel discussion. Best-selling authors and photographers Mikkel Aaland, Stephen Johnson, Ken Milburn, and Derrick Story appear at Book Passage, a beloved San Francisco Bay Area independent bookstore, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Shooters at every level—from passionate enthusiasts to professionals—can learn how to get more from their new digital single lens reflex and point-and-shoot cameras.

"These panel members can cover just about every imaginable aspect of digital photography, from capture, to post production, to output. Stephen and Mikkel have been part of the digital revolution from the very beginning. And Ken has emerged as an expert in workflow. This is really an all star group we have," says Derrick Story, O'Reilly Media Evangelist.

Fast-forward two days, when Mac-addicts of every stripe buzz over to San Francisco's Moscone Center for the annual Macworld Conference & Expo starting Jan. 9, 2007. This year's focus on the Digital Lifestyle puts the spotlight on O'Reilly's roster of star authors. O'Reilly conference highlights include:

And, on Jan. 10, the O'Reilly panel heads over to the San Francisco Apple Store to share their insider know-how starting at 4:30 p.m.
