Jenny BermanI have been a professional photographer for over twelve years. Since the ninth grade, the support of friends, family, and mentors opened a door to a different world, one behind a lens. My first inspiration was Jerry Uelsmann. Uelsmann is a photo-surrealist from the 60’s before the advent of digital art. He used multiple enlargers, hours of darkroom time, and perfected a unique style. His innovation and mastery of technique still drive me today. I learned my craft at The School of Visual Arts in New York City, where I studied with the finest photographers and printers in the world. Through Robert Frank, Anne Leibovitz, and many other established photographers and organizations, I learned the many factors that comprise a perfect photograph; subject, lighting, the finished print, and of course the person behind it all. In July of 2002 I ventured on my own, and started Ashton Imaging Inc. With pride, I bring every photograph to life, and am able to send clients home with much more than a print; I present my clients with a story and an idea or value they never noticed. I bring my photographs and your photographs together and preserve the chronicles of your life.
Host: How do I get digital pictures on my computer?
Jenny Berman: Most of the cameras these days are SD cards which mean secure drive and have little cards and you just stick them into the card reader and it automatically pops up with the software that came with your camera.
The other way to do it is, plug the camera directly in to the computer, sometimes just for coercing bending, bending down, plugging it in, the card readers are definitely the way to go, if you are not into bending and it works the exact same way. Your software will registered as the card has been entered into the system and in automatically start to download.
