Kingston Technology Company, Inc.will feature renowned Brazilian photographer
Claudio Edinger on its Icons of Photography Web site. Frequently referred to
as the "Master of the Essays" for his natural ability to tell a
complete and detailed story through photographs, Edinger will share some of
the techniques he feels have made him successful and believes can be applied
to anyone. Edinger will also share his thoughts on digital imaging and how it
has changed his professional career--becoming an essential and exclusive part
of his equipment lineup.



This month, Edinger shares some of his thoughts, philosophies and shooting styles
which allow him to separate his commercial photography from the journalism he
finds himself doing for TIME Magazine and other news publications.



"For my personal work," said Edinger, "I like to photograph
small universes, where the human element is special, even exceptional and I
can stop and talk to the people. With my work, I try to understand what the
human being is, why we are here, and mainly, who I am. The journalistic pictures,
on the other hand, require agility and quickness, especially with specific assignments."



"Digital imaging has changed the way I shoot and the way I see,"
Edinger continued. "I rely on different things today, including my Kingston
media cards. When I was shooting film, I had a favorite type like many photographers.
Media cards today are no different. It really comes down to who you trust so
you can concentrate on the art."



"When it comes to equipment, the real key is what you feel comfortable
using and trust to help you get the job done," said Jaja Lin, Flash memory
marketing manager, Kingston. "Kingston's reputation and longstanding
heritage as a worldwide leader and provider of `everything memory'
has become the basis for the relationship with world class photographers we
enjoy today. It is a great honor to be associated with these photographers--and
a great responsibility. And certainly one we don't take lightly,"
added Lin.



Born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in Sao Paulo, Edinger moved to New York when
he was 24 years old. After 30 years of admiring Rio, Edinger released the book
"Rio," nominated as one of the best of the year by Photo District
News in 2001 and American Photo magazine in 2003. At that time, Edinger defined
the photo essay as, "An attempt of picking up the dream, the utopia, that
place where, as the chamber of secret of each one of us, where we go to reload
ourselves to continue. The place where we get undressed and find ideally the
fraternity and the sameness: the beach."



Every month Kingston spotlights a world-class photographer who provides helpful
tips and interesting anecdotes for taking better pictures. Photographers previously
featured at Kingston.com include Colin Finlay, Douglas Kirkland, Barbara Bordnick,
Chris Rainier, Peter Read Miller, Gerd Ludwig and Harry Benson. These accomplished
Icons of Photography deliver useful suggestions that photo enthusiasts at all
levels can apply to their own photography as they learn to make digital imaging
a natural part of their workflow, or learn a unique process or trick the Icon
has provided to give them a competitive edge.



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

Brooks Institute of Photography has announced that it's "5 x 5"
fine art photography exhibition will be the school's featured event as
a participant in the Downtown Organization's 1st Thursday initiative.
A public artist's reception will take place on Thursday, February 1, 2007
from 5 -- 9 pm at the Cota Street Campus and Gallery, located at 27 E.
Cota Street in Santa Barbara.



Five photographic perspectives by five recent Brooks' graduates depict
this "artist invitational" public exhibition. More than 50 images
will be on display by photographers: Chris Buckpitt (2003), Adam Gerlach (2003),
Kodiak Greenwood (2004), Serena Lee (2005) and Matthew Rainwaters (2003).



Adam Gerlach, who serves as the gallery's assistant director, specializes
in black-and-white photography. He also specializes in hand-toning his work
to transform reality and create strange and unfamiliar qualities in his images.
Greenwood, a native of Big Sur, has twice earned awards in the Fuji photography
competition, and is represented in private galleries. His extensive photography
of the West Coast -- both in color and black-and-white -- has garnered
critical acclaim.



In contrast to outdoor and landscape photography, Chris Buckpitt strives to
capture the essence of people. About his work, he says "I have a very
deep connection to the human race, and I have always found the human body to
be very beautiful."



Serena Lee, already distinguished in her field of portrait, wedding and fine
art photography, finds that her passions lie in using antique and alternative
processes, and digital imaging, to mix the old world with the new. Her work
has been seen in many venues, including the International Photography Hall of
Fame.



Matthew Rainwaters began working with cameras at age 14 shooting skate videos
with his friends. Five years later, he bought a Pentax K-1000 and took a junior
college photography course. A teacher's comment that he was "pretty
good" forever changed his life. Today, his work's featured twice
in the Advertising Photographers of America annual Personal Ads show, appeared
in the notable Focus on Aids charity auction in Beverly Hills, and has shown
in the Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House. He presently teaches photography
and reprints portfolios for publication.



The `5 x 5' exhibition, which opens on January 18, will run through
March 31, 2007. In the coming months, the Cota Campus and Gallery will feature
exhibitions by a range of professional photographers, as well as shows presented
by Brooks Institute students and alumni. The public is invited to visit the
gallery on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 9
p.m. For more information, call the Brooks Institute Cota St. Campus and Gallery
at (805) 690-4913.

Californa SUNBOUNCE reflective panels come in various sizes (30”x35”, 35”x49”, 35”x7”, 51”x7”, 51”x74” and 70”x96”), shapes, and colors (silver/pearl white, zebra/pearl white and black/ultrabounce) which produce different kinds of lighting moods. The SUN-BOUNCE PRO panel weighs probably less than a professional camera (4pds or 1.800 gramm). Because the frames keep the material taut one gets more light and greater surface coverage per frame size. The 3-dimensional frame is handcrafted in Germany and made from best aluminum; the synergy of frame and screen gets its super-tension by the permeable elastic screen material used. All the screens are made from the finest reflective and translucent materials available. The cross bar on the back of the frame and the hand-holds on the side of the reflectors make it easy to grip. Unwanted breaks because of unstable conditions (e.g., when the sun is in and out) can be avoided by flipping over the double-sided panel to the other side of the screen. SUNBOUNCE reflectors can create strobe light, video light, sunlight or any kind of light for video-interviews, photo-portrait-shootings, sports-, action- and press-photography, commercials and live coverages.
