Kingston Technology Company, Inc.has posted the latest series of images submitted
by aspiring photographers worldwide seeking advice for taking better pictures
from its world-class `Icons of Photography' members.



"The quantity of images to be critiqued by our Icons seems to increase
with each series and the Icons are really enjoying the quality of the work submitted,"
said Jaja Lin, Flash product marketing manager, Kingston. "The continued
positive response demonstrates the benefits of the Icons program educating consumers
on Kingston Flash memory. The Icons have said sharing so much of their knowledge
and experience with digital photographers of all levels is tremendously rewarding."



Critique My Image, a feature offered through Kingston's `Icons of
Photography' microsite, provides professional and aspiring photographers
with an opportunity to have their images reviewed by some of the best photographers
in the world. In this installment, each photographer selected several images
from the scores of photographs submitted and provided constructive advice for
improving or enhancing each photograph. From lighting and exposure to composition
and styling, each critique is constructed as a lesson that can be applied by
all viewers to their respective photography. Visitors are encouraged to upload
images for critique by logging onto http://www.kingston.com/iop.



"It is a wonderful feeling to be consulted by fellow photographers for
our opinions about their work," said Harry Benson. "Good photography
comes from the heart and often represents a very personal side of that photographer.
Kingston's Icons program gives us an opportunity to view beautiful work
and offer our humbled opinions about how it might be improved next time. That's
what is special about this program to me."



Kingston's `Icons of Photography' includes Benson, acclaimed
documentary photographer and photojournalist, Colin Finlay, 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 February, Kingston will publish 20 Questions with Gerd Ludwig, an up-close-and-personal
interview.
