A Walk in the Park with Katrin Eismann

A number of years ago I read a story in The LensWork Magazine about photographers doing projects.  It’s been a few years now that I have been at Luminous-Landscape and during the last year I have been thinking of a number of projects for our readers.  We started with the publication over the last few months of our video series, Shooting With The Masters – William Neill.  We plan to continue that series this year.  Recently we started a few new projects including: Back To The Print.

Today I want to share another project: Women In Photography.  To get this project off to a great start I called a longtime friend, Katrin Eismann and asked her if we could do a few videos together.

Katrin Eismann is a very talented photographer and well known to many of our readers.  I met Katrin a number of years ago when I attended a two day workshop on Photoshop at which she was the instructor.  Katrin has a marvelous teaching style and I learned more from her than from many other instructors.  Katrin mixes a bit of humor with down to earth practical advice on the uses of Photoshop for photographers.  I continued to attend Katrin’s other workshops and over time, became friends with her.

Katrin is the author of numerous books including Photoshop Restoration and Retouching, Photoshop Masking and Composition as well as co-author for The Creative Digital Darkroom and Real World Digital Photography.  She’s a well-known speaker and instructor at many photographic events around the world.  Presently Katrin is the Chair, MPS Digital Photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

The thing I love about Katrin is she is the real deal.  She is out photographing everyday.  Both of us attended a workshop at Silo City two years ago.  And, while the group was concentrating on photographing the grain silos, Katrin took a walk around the neighborhood and she came back with gorgeous images. She has an uncanny ability to see things and turn them into beautiful photographs. It taught me the lesson that you need to look around and walk around.  Sometimes the shot is not in front of you but down the street or over the next hill.

With that in mind I suggested that Katrin and I meet up for a Walk In The Park.  Chris Sanderson, Luminous-Landscape’s videographer followed us as we had a casual chat and took sometime to photograph the High Line in NYC.  This was the start of a busy day of recording videos. They will be forthcoming soon after this one.

Please enjoy this 20 minute video as Katrin and I have a casual conversation about photography.

Photography is my passion and has been for 45 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of pictures taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through Rockhopper Workshops and other projects as well as teaching at my Gallery in Indianapolis.
