On November 10,2011 American Photography and American Illustration presented their first symposium, entitled Big Talk, prior to the publication Party celebrating the winners of this years annuals.
The event was sponsored by the ASMP and presented in three parts.
Some highlights featured here include in the first two parts, the designers of AP 27 and AI 30 and some jurors talking about the entries and what trends they saw, comments on self publishing, celebrity photography today, retouching, iPhone pictures, publishing books today and iPads vs. prints. In the third segment at 17:40, there are some great Social Media tips on best practices, how to manage your posts and your time and being mindful of terms of service and legal issues.
You can also look at the three parts, (Photography, Illustration and Social Media), in their own separate edits.
