f11 Photography Magazine | June 2019
1st June 2019
This month we have for you, our loyal f11s, two eminently practical “How it’s Done” features, written and video, both of which deconstruct the assessment of where to focus on a landscape shoot.
There’s also practical information in this month’s “The Pentathlete” with an accompanying post-production video on the problems I came up against shooting my third session (this time fencing) on the making of an Olympian. In the other post-production video I process an image of Glastonbury Tor using both Luminance Range Masking and the Adjustment Brush in Lightroom to emphasise the drama in the sky. And “Stepping Back” I recall a shoot from almost 30 years ago on the shore of (arguably) one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, while “Wendy’s Wanderings” revels in the magic of Italy as we prepare for a return to Umbria. We’ve an inspirational f11 Spotlight this month on David Baker, a talented f11 Member who lost his photography, then found it again after a life-changing accident.
Meanwhile Guest Columnist Angela Nicholson finds out who and what’s behind the female photographer’s group SheClicks, while in the Guest Feature, our own Ailsa McWhinnie chats to Trevor Crone about his change from shooting large format to instant film. And then there are your images in the Member’s Gallery. This month we feature f11 Member’s images from Denmark, Los Angeles, Prague, Co Mayo and Cadbury, with constructive appraisal from myself.
I also would urge you to make the most of your f11 Membership by using the Search f11 facility you see at the top of every page on this website to access the information you need from all those 89 and counting back issues. Just enter the relevant keywords and away you go.
