f11 Photography Magazine | September 2019
31st August 2019
Welcome to the September 2019 of the f11 Photography Magazine, an Issue with a distinct whiff of the sea about it. I’m still a bit salty myself as I’m just back from a dawn shoot at Weymouth. The mission; to capture a key image for this month’s Behind The Lens feature which, believe it or not, I started in 1982. About time I wrapped it up, isn’t it? And staying on the coast this month’s How it’s Done (with two accompanying post-production videos) deconstructs the planning of a night shoot of the Milky Way over Kimmeridge Bay, where I made a startling discovery.
My sea-side theme falls down somewhat with this month’s Stepping Back in which I recall a memorable Outback stopover about as far as you can get from the sea in Australia at Wauchope, on the Stuart Highway. I’m also reporting from the mountains of Provence’s Mercantour National Park in What’s In A Picture?
A trip to Bali allows f11 columnist Ben Pipe to take in some of the known – and less-known- sights of this part of Indonesia. Then f11 Member Tony Gaskins brings us back in this month’s f11 Spotlight on his mission to photograph Lincolnshire as a homage to his father. Meanwhile f11 Editor Ailsa McWhinnie has been talking to Lisa Mardell about her sublime horse photography.
Lastly, there are your images in the f11 Members' Gallery, which this month include pictures captured in a variety of intriguing lighting situations from Norway to New York State, all of which provide me with ample opportunity for constructive appraisal.
Thanks to those of you who have been in touch with interesting suggestions for future articles. We will act on each and every one of them. And now September is upon us we’ll look forward to seeing images from your summer in the f11 Members' Gallery.
