f11 Photography Magazine | April 2016
1st April 2016
Welcome to April 2016’s Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members – we have a bumper edition in store for you this month!
Starting with our regular Behind the Lens article, David Noton introduces us to a special project he has been working on close to home: shooting the hamlet of Milborne Wick over the course of a year to capture the passage of the seasons. This month’s How It’s Done article continues on this theme, as he drills down into the creative process behind a set of identically framed images of The Tree. Meanwhile in this month’s Low Down, David takes us on a tour of the inspirational architecture he has shot around the globe. Finally, David presents two of his popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
Elsewhere, we kick off a new series in which I make a personal shot selection from one of our photographers’ portfolios: this first instalment sees me choose David Noton’s intriguing image from Angkor Wat, with critique provided by both me and David. Rather than tripod legs, in Hoddinott’s Hangout Ross Hoddinott discusses the merits of tripod heads and their significance for our photography. And in the Art of Landscapes, Bas Meelker gives us his take on mirroless cameras in a debate designed to enable you to make up your own mind on whether ‘To Mirror or Not to Mirror?’
For this month’s edition of The Pipe Line we travel with Ben Pipe to Istanbul, as he visits Hagia Sophia, the Grand Bazaar, then the Süleymaniye and Ortaköy Mosques to create his own unique photographic vision of these iconic locations. And finally, for this edition’s Guest Feature we’re delighted to welcome back photographer Richard Fox, this time revealing how an intimate knowledge of his locality – East Dartmoor in Devon – has helped him to improve his photography, accompanied by the beautiful portfolio of images he has shot there.
We are also thrilled to commemorate the Fourth Anniversary of the launch of our magazine by announcing the Winners of David Noton’s Your Vision 2016 photographic competition. The winning and highly commended images are displayed in this month’s Member’s Gallery Special Edition, along with comments on each by both the Photographer and 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.
