PhotoPlus Expo in NYC is one of the best photographer events on the calendar. I say "photographer" on purpose because it's really about the person with the camera in their hands who wants to improve their craft. The combination of top-tier seminars with a heady trade show floor make this a very satisfying event.
I spent the week at PhotoPlus and have pulled together a recap of my experiences there, from my time in the O'Reilly booth, to teaching classes, to wandering about the Expo hall, and talk about them in this podcast. I even had time to do a little street shooting.

Missing is this month's photo assignment. This can be taken so many ways. A series of objects with one missing, someone missing someone else, a clear omission... lots to work with here. You can read more about how to submit on our Submissions page. Deadline for entry is Oct. 31.
