These gadgets are for serious photographers who want to make a print that comes as close as possible to reproducing the actual image the photographer remembers in their minds eye. If youve ever taken a photo and been disappointed that it didnt turn out the way you remember the scene, youll understand. Canon displayed three printers at the event that drew about 300 people including, somehow, me. The printers on display were the Pixma Pro-100 that lists for $500, the Pro-10 for $700 and the Pro-1 for $1,000. This Canon printer is sick, by the way, Florence said in brief remarks to the crowd. (To the uninitiated, sick is a slang term thats high praise.) The high quality of this printer really means something. The event showcased prints from Florence, Robyn Lehr , a professional photographer whose specialties include food and still life, according to her Web site, and Erin Kunkel , whose site says she also specializes in food photographs. The three photographers were assigned to take photos in Wine Country north of San Francisco, where Florence has a winery and lives in Mill Valley. Guests at the event were taken through a series of small galleries, each one representing one of the five senses. In the gallery representing sound, for instance, visitors donned headphones with sounds of breezes flowing through a vineyard as they viewed vineyard photos. In the touch gallery, we were invited to place our hands in a tray of soil and brush from Florences vineyards. In the taste gallery, we were offered grapes to snack on.

Celebrity Twitter Ads: Regulations, Allegations and Selling Out
These Twitter endorsements have certainly been causing debates in recent months and has seen celebrities, such as Rio Ferdinand , Kim Kardashian and Charlie Sheen , facing accusations of breaking advertising standards. Social Media Advertising Regulations Facebook Ads and Promoted Tweets are easily recognisable as advertisements due to their layout and labelling. However, Twitter endorsements from a celebrity can be deemed as misleading as it is not made clear that the celeb has been paid to tweet about the product. This has caused the Advertising Standards Authority (UK) and the Federal Trade Commision (USA) to investigate these types of tweets and state that adverts made via a celebrities Twitter page should incorporate the hashtag #ad. But, this raises the question of how to uphold these regulations and where to draw the line when it comes to celebrity endorsements. What if a celeb was simply tweeting their love of their new shoes or favourite restaurant without payments or promoting their own brands, television shows or records? Are Celebrities Selling Out? A Dispatches documentary on Channel 4 recently highlighted how celebrities tweeted for cash, and it seems that no one was surprised or shocked by this revelation. Many twitter users were aware of the practice and thought it naive to think that celebrities were not getting paid for their participation in tweet advertising. Celebrity Twitter Ads: Regulations, Allegations and Selling Out Celebrity Twitter Ads: Regulations, Allegations and Selling Out It seems that although celebrities are breaking ASA rules, tweeters are now savvy enough to realise that the tweet is not always a celebs own opinion. However, even when celebs use the #ad it can sometimes receive negative reactions from their followers. A recent example is that of Kate Thornton whose advert for Weetabix received a cold reception by her followers.
