Luminance – New York

August 27, 2012

I wish I could be in New York for this…

I’m not sure when <a title=”Luminance” href=”http://www.photoshelter.com/luminance/” target=”_blank”>Luminance</a> was announced but I just found out about it via <a title=”swiss miss” href=”http://www.swiss-miss.com” target=”_blank”>swissmiss</a>. It looks like they’ve got a good lineup of speakers… and as usual I wish I lived in New York to be able to attend (on short notice).
