PRESS RELEASE: Award-Winning Documentary Photographer Colin Finlay Shares Techniques To Master Available Lighting
World's Leading Photographers Reveal Tips and Techniques at Kingston 'Icons of Photography' Website
Fountain Valley, CA - November 15, 2006 - Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announces that leading documentary photographer Colin Finlay will reveal his latest tip on Kingston's 'Icons of Photography' Website. Finlay, fresh from a three-month educational tour teaching photo students at 25 top universities in the U.S., hones in on lighting in this month's profile.
Kingston recognizes the importance of educating and informing photographers of all levels and is proud to offer its Icons of Photography, an online forum showcasing the talents and seasoned advice from several of the world's most respected lens artists. Each month the program spotlights an icon and their suggestions for taking better pictures, managing image files and improving workflow, plus their techniques for getting the most from camera and gear. 'Try it yourself' tips suitable for enthusiast through pro are revealed.
In this month's profile Finlay offers tips on making the most of existing lighting. "As a photojournalist I've learned to use whatever is available to me to capture my images - this includes lighting. I rarely have the luxury of bringing portable strobes on assignments, even my commercial advertising jobs," Finlay notes. "Keeping the lighting simple is something I always tell students, whether in the studio or on location. Doing this minimizes complications and forces you to look at your subjects from varying angles and perspectives. Many of my best shots were produced because I was forced to move around a subject and change my perspective; the light was stationary and I was the one that needed to move. It is a great exercise and one I am constantly sharing with students."
"One of the best ways to improve upon a skill such as photography is by sharing and learning from others," said Jaja Lin, Flash Product marketing manager, Kingston Technology Company. "This is a key reason we adopted the Icons of Photography program. It's important to stay current with the ever-changing technologies that drive this industry, so each month we look forward to profiling a photographer and chronicling a bit of their work -- whether it's a fashion and beauty, nature, advertising or portrait. It's professionals like Colin Finlay who have helped us strengthen the Kingston brand and continue to show the dependability, durability and reliability of Kingston memory cards."
Kingston will profile a photographer and their tips, plus provide a gallery of images, calendar of events, and biography around the 15th of each month. Site visitors can read more at www.kingston.com/digitalmedia/iop. Other Kingston Icons of Photography include: Harry Benson, Barbara Bordnick, Douglas Kirkland, Gerd Ludwig, Peter Read Miller and Chris Rainier.
