PRESS RELEASE: Photographer Barbara Bordnick Shares Her Secrets To Taking Great Portraits At Kingston's "Icons Of Photography" Web Site
Web Site Continues to Inspire and Educate Photographers at All Levels with
Helpful Tips and Techniques from World-Class Pros
Fountain Valley, CA - March 20, 2006 - Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announced that world-class portrait and fashion photographer Barbara Bordnick is the new featured photographer on Kingston's Icons of Photography beginning today. "Icons of Photography" is an online forum consisting of several of the world's most respected photographers who share some of their unique tips and techniques with photo enthusiasts and professionals worldwide. Each month Kingston spotlights a new Icon who provides interesting advice and anecdotes for taking better pictures and shares how they successfully navigate through the exciting world of digital imaging, storage, and workflow.
Digital photography has changed the way we take photos and process them and Kingston is helping to educate and inform photographers at all levels about the importance of memory, whether it's for the computer, the camera or as a convenient means of transporting images through secure and high capacity USB Flash drives.
As this month's Icons of Photography spotlight photographer, Barbara Bordnick shares some of the secrets that have made her one of the premiere portrait photographers in the world. She also discusses how her workflow has changed since working with digital cameras and the important role Kingston Flash memory cards have played in that process.
A self-taught photographer, Barbara's work has included such innovative projects as a commissioned Calendar of Great Women in Jazz and three immensely celebrated books of beautiful, digital photographs titled, Searchings: Secret Landscapes of Flowers Volumes I, II, and III. Last year, Bordnick's portrait of lyricist, E.Y. "Yip" Harburg was made into a United States commemorative postage stamp, issued on April 28th, 2005.
"As an instructor at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City, among other things, being a part of Kingston's Icons of Photography is a great opportunity for me to share some of my techniques with people beyond the traditional classroom environment," said Ms. Bordnick in a recent interview. "Working with Kingston memory products has made it easier for me to concentrate on my subjects because its one less thing I have to worry about. I know it will do its job so I can do mine."
"The response to our new Icons of Photography site has been extremely positive. Photographers from all over the world enjoy learning and seeing the work of pros," said Wendy Lecot, Flash memory marketing manager, Kingston. "Working with photographers at the level of Barbara Bordnick and others has helped us elevate the Kingston brand within the photographic marketplace."
Kingston will introduce a new photographer with their featured photographic tip, gallery of images, calendar of events and biography around the 15th of each month. Photographers and consumers can read the latest tips and view images by logging onto www.kingston.com/digitalmedia/iop.
Other Kingston Icons of Photography include: Harry Benson, Colin Finlay, Douglas Kirkland, Gerd Ludwig, Peter Read Miller, and Chris Rainier.
