Blurb Sponsors Imaging DNA 2011 in Pasadena, California
The Imaging DNA Conference 2011 explores the synergy of technology, guidance and practice to envision new methods of making and teaching photography.
March 18, 2011, Pasadena, CA – Imaging DNA’s third conference on March 26th at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena is pleased to have Blurb Inc. as one of its sponsors. Imaging DNA 2011, powered by Imaging DNA focuses on inspiring photographers to create images in new ways to creating successful professional careers in the future.
The conference speaker line-up features speakers from as far away as Germany and Australia and from a variety of organizations such as Adobe, Blurb, deviantART, Raytrix GmbH, Imaging DNA, Art Center College of Design, and Parsons The New School of Design. This year’s conference follows the success of last year’s event where feedback was that a conference of this interactive, participative nature is invaluable and not readily available in today.
“We’re thrilled about participating in this year’s Imaging DNA,” Eileen Gittins, CEO and Founder, Blurb Inc. “The conference is perfectly positioned to explore how the imaging and photographic markets are coming together for creative artists, educators and technologists. Our mission at Blurb is closely aligned, as we enable these exact communities to share their stories with the world via our professional quality on-demand book publishing platform.”

The camera will be discussed as part of coverage of new technologies during the main session. Christian Perwass, Co-founder, Raytrix GmbH: “We feel that the presentation of our R11 camera to this select group of students, educators and professionals will start a creative process centered on plenoptic cameras.
