Martini Hour 021, In Which Colleen Considers Leaving the Lounge to Pursue a Masters of Professional

(And/or a rudimentary degree in Spelling.) Yes, my dekeOphiles, this week’s discussion with the Photoshop Diva herself, Katrin Eismann, has convinced me that I should put everything on hold and go to New York to persue continuing arts education. Oh sure, it might have been the martinis, but when you hear Katrin describe the MPS in Digital Photography program that she chairs at the School of Visual Arts, you will want to abandon your current existence for the chance to immerse yourselves in this very enticing program.

Here’s just some of what’s in store:

Listen as Katrin describes the program that is designed especially for those wishing to take the deep dive into pro-level digital photography. Ever walk out of a color management seminar with your head spinning? Or sit in a bar until all hours listening to different experts arm wrassle over the finer points? Then just imagine the splendor of fifteen weeks of color management taught by a leading expert—and an intelligible one at that!

I’m telling you dekeOphytes, if it weren’t my dedication to bring you people the best of cocktail-laden digital imaging conversation, I’d give up this glamorous life in a heartbeat. (And Katrin’s program is going online, so there’s always a possibility that I could keep my lounge status and persue my dreams at the same time.)

You can also hear about the early crossing of Katrin and Deke’s paths in the nacent days of digital photography. And you can generally just hear one of the foremost experts and dedicated educators talk about her passion.
