f11 Photography Magazine | February 2016
1st February 2016
Welcome to February 2016’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
In this month’s Behind the Lens article, David Noton kicks off with the first instalment of his two-part travelogue to Western Australia, as he revels in the wonderful photo ops of the Nambung and Kalbari national parks – while wrestling with the roof tent of a Toyota Troopy! A Video Blog accompanies this article. Meanwhile, during the flight back from Oz at the end of December, it dawned upon David that he has now been a freelance photographer for 30 years. So in this month’s Stepping Back, he reviews the sequence of events after his graduation from Gloucester in the summer of 1985 that set him on his lifetime career path. In the Low Down, David continues his mini series on new inspirations by considering his lifelong passion for photographing food around the world – from the barbeques of Milborne Port to pad Thai in Bangkok, inspiration can be found anywhere. Finally, he presents two of his ever-popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
In Hoddinott’s Hangout, Ross Hoddinott explores artistic interpretation as he answers the burning question: when is bad exposure good? Meanwhile, in the Art of Landscapes Bas Meelker provides us with a welcome introduction to his approach to his stunning black and white photography; next month, he’ll follow this up with a practical exploration of the creative and technical process behind a selection of his best black and white shots. With Chinese New Year almost upon us, in this month’s edition of The Pipe Line Ben Pipe whizzes us across the globe to Hong Kong to join him on an advertising shoot he completed for Chrysler a year ago. And finally, for this edition’s Guest Feature we’re delighted to welcome on board professional photographer Rainer Mirau, as he leads us on a journey through his beautiful homeland of Austria to reveal some of the most stunning locations this land has to offer – a truly break-taking journey.
