f11 Photography Magazine | August 2016
1st August 2016
Welcome to August 2016’s Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
During the early summer months, David visited Italy and France: in a Behind the Lens mini series, we join him for the first leg of this trip as he and Wendy take in Brescia, Mantova and the Val d’Orcia – this article is accompanied by a Video Blog. Then in this month’s How It’s Done, David visits the banks of the River Dart in Devon to shoot the estuary at Kingswear, refreshing himself on a few home truths about location searching along the way. And in a separate Video Tutorial on the same subject, he walks us through the fundamentals of the location searching process. Finally, David presents two of his popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
Having previously explored the Canon, Sony and Fuji systems in our Field Trials, this month Ross Hoddinott closes off our loop with an examination of the Nikon system. Meanwhile in this edition of Hoddinott’s Hangout, he puts Manfrotto’s LUMIMUSE LED range to the test. In the Art of Landscapes, Bas Meelker walks us through the image-editing techniques he uses in Lightroom and Photoshop; and in the Pipeline, Ben Pipe takes us along with him as he visits the incredible Omo Valley in Ethiopia. Finally, for our Guest Feature we’re delighted to welcome on board wildlife photographer Richard Peters, as he recalls his creative journey that has seen him shooting wildlife in locations that range from his back garden, to the Maasai Mara.
To all our f11 Members, we hope you’re continuing to enjoy our magazine. If you’d like any of your images to be featured in our Member’s Gallery column, please send an email to [email protected] with your low-res jpegs and the story from behind the lens for each.
