f11 Photography Magazine | May 2016
1st May 2016
Welcome to May 2016’s Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
This month David Noton kicks off with a Field Trial to evaluate the new Canon EOS 1Dx Mk II, enjoying some time in Paris to put this exciting addition to the Canon stable through its paces. David also starts a new series entitled Photo Essentials, which is designed to refresh our basic photo skills – the first instalment begins a detailed exploration of camera settings – see how much you learn! He also starts a new occasional series Location Report, this time giving us his thoughts on Iceland as a photo destination. Meanwhile, in this month’s Low Down David considers how to safely and effectively harness the awe-inspiring Power of Nature in our landscape and travel shots. And finally, he presents two of his popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
Elsewhere, the second instalment of the new Editor’s Choice series sees me select David Noton’s Lao Drive Time shot, which he considers a true example of what travel photography is all about. In Hoddinott’s Hangout Ross Hoddinott rediscovers polarising filters, reminding us just how useful they really are. In the Art of Landscapes we travel with Bas Meelker through Namibia on the adventure of a lifetime, photographing the country’s breath-taking wildlife along the way. And for this month’s edition of the Pipeline, we join Ben Pipe on his recent visit to Seville where he shot this beautiful city and the Semana Santa festivities.
For this edition’s Guest Feature we’re delighted to welcome on board Australian photographer Glen Cowans, as he reveals his passion for underwater photography, along with the approach and techniques he uses to capture the very best images beneath the waves. Finally, the standard of entries to our Your Vision 2016 photographic competition was so high that we have decided to dedicate this issue’s Member’s Gallery to six images that were Highly Commended by our Judges, displaying these along with comments from both the Photographers and the Judges.
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.
