Kingston has updated the Icons of Photography section of its Website with a new interview with National Geographic photographer Gerd Ludwig. Ludwig is the fourth of the flash memory card maker's Icons of Photography to be interviewed for the Kingston site, which also includes sections that let you submit questions to be answered by the Icons, or photos to be critiqued by these legendary photographers. While Kingston isn't the only place you can find interviews with photographers, they do conveniently have access to very high level photographers, including photojournalist Harry Benson, documentary photographer Colin Finlay, and sports photographer Peter Read Miller, in addition to Gerd Ludwig.
Since the Website is Flash-based, making direct links difficult, and its navigation is more time-centric than content-centric, I'll demystify it a bit for you. When you first arrive, you'll see the latest addition--in this case Mr. Ludwig's interview. If you want to find a past interview, you should use the archive bar on the right hand side of the page. As you move backward month to month, you'll notice that the site features a different kind of content each month, cycling through 20 questions, Ask the Icon, and Critique my image. That means that if you're only interested in one type of content, say all the interviews, you should step backward in three month intervals to skip the other stuff. Could we complain about the navigation? Maybe, but since it's free, I'll bite my tongue and just enjoy the content. My favorites are the large slide shows, because I believe that one of the best ways to improve your photography is to expose yourself to great photos.
