f11 Photography Magazine l September 2015
1st September 2015
Welcome to September 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
For Part 10 of our Low Down series on Exposure, David Noton explores the relationship between lens aperture, focal length, subject distance and required depth of field. Then in a special edition of The Bizz series, David gives the view of himself and other parties on the state of stock photography. And in Stepping Back, he tells us a few things we need to know about rainforests, as he revisits his trip to Daintree, Australia 15 years ago. He also presents two of his popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
Elsewhere, Bas Meelker kick-starts his new column entitled Art of Landscapes with a look at how he approaches cityscapes – working in the blue hour to capture that golden moment. In Hoddinott’s Hangout, Ross Hoddinott gets to grips with macro lenses, explaining the choices and techniques that can help us all use them to maximum effect. Meanwhile in The Storyteller, Chris Weston explores his recent experiences with mirror-less cameras.
In Sense of Space, Jeremy Horner travels to Japan to reminisce on the magical and often ‘grabbed’ moments that made this one-time visit worthwhile. And for this edition’s Guest Feature, we welcome on board master of black and white photography Paul Gallagher, as he describes the elements that have formed the bedrock of his considered technique over the years – an inspiring read.
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]
At the same time, if you’d like any images to be featured in the Member’s Gallery and entered into our next annual photo competition, please send an email to [email protected] with three low-res jpegs and the story from behind the lens.
