f11 Photography Magazine | October 2015
1st October 2015
Welcome to October 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
In this month’s Behind the Lens, David Noton fills us in on his exciting experiences shooting the Royal Scotsman in the Scottish Highlands last August. In the final instalment of our Low Down series on Exposure, David looks at the creative possibilities of using fast glass wide open for minimal depth of field and dreamy bokeh backgrounds. And in the second instalment of his The Bizz series, David explores at the transformation that has taken place in the stock photography market over the last 20 years. He also presents two of his popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
Then in Bas Meelker’s second article for his Art of Landscapes column, he follows last month’s piece on cityscapes with a fascinating insight into his experiences of working in Saint Petersburg. In Hoddinott’s Hangout, Ross Hoddinott looks at lighting for close-ups, revealing the natural and artificial options available to us to achieve the very best results in this field. Meanwhile, this month in Sense of Space Jeremy Horner travels to Morocco, reminiscing on the many times he has visited this magical country, and his favourite photo locations there.
And for this edition’s Guest Feature, we’re delighted to welcome on board Alessandra Meniconzi, renowned photographer of indigenous peoples to the world’s wildernesses, as she explains her love of capturing their ancient heritage and daily life – with stunning images from Ethiopia and Tibet to Greenland and Siberia.
To all our f11 Members, we hope you’re continuing to enjoy our magazine. Over the next month or so we’d like to initiate a new column titled ‘Ask David’ – as the name suggests, this will feature a selection of questions on photo technique to complement the magazine sent in by our readers, with answers provided by David. So if you’re an f11 Member and have a burning question you think would be suitable for inclusion, please send it to [email protected] titled Ask David.
At the same time, if you’d like any images to be featured in the Member’s Gallery, please send an email to [email protected] with your low-res jpegs and the story from behind the lens for each.
