Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it has posted a new series of photographs submitted by aspiring photographers from around the globe that were critiqued by its world-class Icons of Photography members.
The Critique My Image section gives visitors to Kingston’s Icons of Photography microsite an opportunity to have their photographs reviewed by some of the best photographers in the world including Harry Benson, Colin Finlay, Gerd Ludwig and Peter Read Miller, who provide constructive advice for improving their photographs. Visitors can upload images for critique by logging ontothe Kingston Icons of Photography website.
“The response we’ve received from people around the world who want constructive comments about how to improve their photography is impressive,” said Jaja Lin, Flash product marketing manager, Kingston. “The photographers in our Icons of Photography program are among the very best in their respective fields and their expert advice and insight benefits everyone who reads their critiques, not just those who submitted photos."
“It’s encouraging to see the number of photographers genuinely interested in receiving feedback from us in the Icons program,” said Colin Finlay. “It would be virtually impossible to critique all the images submitted, so our selection process is tailored to choosing images that allow us to offer advice everyone can apply to their own photography. We are thrilled and humbled at the number of photographers seeking our opinions about their work and how they might improve on it.”
Kingston’s Icons of Photography microsite includes Finlay, acclaimed photojournalist Harry Benson, National Geographic photographer Gerd Ludwig and Sports Illustrated photographer Peter Read Miller.
Consisting of three elements — 20 Questions, Ask the Icon and Critique My Image — the site provides visitors with personal insight in an interactive forum where questions can be asked and images can be shared with the Icons. The microsite will continue to showcase the latest work produced by each photographer, along with a listing of upcoming projects, lectures and workshops from each. In October, Kingston will publish 20 Questions with Colin Finlay, an up-close-and-personal interview.
