Katrin Eismann | ‘Untitled’

leave a comment »

Artist’s statement: The power and integrity of the United States is based on the founding ideals of liberty, equality, democracy, opportunity and rights. As our national discourse becomes more stringent and polemic, it distorts and erodes our international influence, respect and power. By photographing coins in the waters of Lake Huron, Eismann suggests that the founding principles of the United States are at risk of being warped to the point where we will no longer recognize them.

Artist’s bio: Katrin Eismann is an internationally respected artist, teacher and author specializing in creative digital photography and the impact of emerging technologies upon professional photographers, artists and educators. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photographic illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology and her Master of Fine Arts degree in design at the School of Visual Arts. Eismann is the author of “Photoshop Restoration & Retouching” and “Photoshop Masking & Compositing” and co-author of “The Creative Digital Darkroom” and “Real World Digital Photography.” She is a featured columnist in Photoshop User magazine and is a popular speaker at the PMA, ASMP, PPA, PhotoPlusExpo and Photoshop User conferences. In 2005, she was inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame, and her images have been featured in numerous books, magazines and group exhibits. Eismann is the founder and chair of the Master of Professional Studies in Digital Photography program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Had a great day here in Brian Head, Utah.  Motocross, Quads, and Artic Cats!  Wouldn’t have been a good day without a little road rash.  The weather was incredible and the views even better.

Earth Day | 2012

with 2 comments

NASA has been photographing the Earth from space since the first camera equipped satellites were launched into space in the early 1960’s.  Since then the space agency has been compiling images of our home planet year on year, with the most iconic image being the famous ‘Blue Marble‘ photograph taken by the astronauts of Apollo 17 in 1972, which is posted below.  This new photo is NASA’s latest and greatest photo in all its High Definition glory.  I really like it!
