PDNedu’s Fall Issue is all about Light

Posted by on October 3, 2013 | Education, Media


PDNedu‘s Fall 2013 issue is hot off the press and currently shipping to photography programs nationwide. Inside, you’ll find engaging and colorful stories on the theme of Lighting and Light.

Our cover feature, It’s a Living, is a rollicking profile of Lynn Goldsmith’s long and multifaceted career. Her new book Rock and Roll Stories, about her days (and nights) as a music scene star maker, is due out later this fall. Check out our story for a preview of what’s in store in the book.

In One to Watch, photographer and light graffiti pioneer Vicki DaSilva reveals the inspiration behind her illuminating artwork and talks about her big win in last year’s Artist Wanted competition, when her images were projected throughout Times Square. Step behind-the-scenes with DaSilva in our digital edition, with a video demonstration of her light painting techniques in the field.

Our Special Report story investigates three very diverse photo programs connected to major photography museums and, in Step X Step, industry expert Richard Newman breaks down the options for video lighting tools and setups in the story, The Light You See is the Light You Get.

All this and much, much more is packed into the issue, including cost breakdowns for studying, living and working in Miami, Florida, reviews of the latest and greatest in photo gear and our Q&A with photographer John Solano, whose bright idea for a fast, portable, Hollywood-style light came to fruition in the Lowel GL-1 Hotlight.

Backing up the print magazine, PDNedu‘s digital edition is enhanced with streaming videos and hotlinks, which can be accessed from any computer, tablet or mobile device—free of charge and with a global reach. And, for archived content starting with the Fall 2011 issue, click here.

And, while we’ve got your attention, we’re always looking for inspiring educational content to consider for future issues, so educators and students please keep in touch!
