On September 25 and 26, you can meet some of the COW's leaders and creators, as we head to the Los Angeles Film School (near Sunset and Vine) and take part in Photo Cine Expo 2010.

Many of the top experts in the world of HDSLR acquisition, editing and finishing will be there. Shane Hurlbut (Terminator:Salvation) is going to be there, as is Vincent Laforet -- one of the true pioneers in the field of HDSLR. Rodney Charters (24) is also slated to speak, sharing his experience of using DSLRs on the highly respected FOX series. From Creative COW, Richard Harrington will be teaching a class on Photoshop and how it works with DSLR images. We'll also have some copies of Richard's new Photoshop book, the first in our Creative COW Master Series of books from Peachpit. If you'd like to get a signed copy, come by the booth on Saturday, as Richard will be in most of the day.

Tim Wilson, the irrepressible leader of our Creative COW Magazine project, is also flying out for the event and will be bringing along not only the newest "Divergence Issue" of the COW Magazine, but we're also bringing along many of our earlier issues -- so if you'd like to get your hands on some of our back issues at no charge, here's your chance.

The first 50 people that sign up using our code, which is PCEtix4Creative will get in at no charge. That is PCE (as in Photo Cine Expo) tix (as in tickets) 4Creative (as in for Creative COW members). So, we apologize for the length of the code but we think it's going to be an information packed event and we hope to see you there.

Sign up at http://photocinenews.com/expo/ and go to the registration page and enter PCEtix4Creative to get your discount.
