f11 Photography Magazine | July 2015
1st July 2015
Welcome to July 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
David Noton was recently commissioned to shoot the beautiful Venice Simplon Orient Express as it made its way through the breath-taking scenery of the Austrian Tyrol. So in this month’s Behind the Lens he describes his experience of working on this prestigious commission, from first contact to making the actual shots, along with the logistical hurdles of completing such a shoot. In Stepping Back David reminisces on his beloved Umbria, describing the love affair he and Wendy have enjoyed with that region over the last decade.
Then in Part 8 of our Low Down series on Exposure, David looks at the ‘need for speed’, otherwise known as fast shutter speeds: when we need them, why we need them, and how fast we need them. For this month’s How It’s Done, he returns to Vietnam to try his hand at some close quarters travel portraiture; and he also presents two of his ever-popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
In this month’s Hoddinott’s Hangout Ross Hoddinott reveals how his photography of the enchanting wildlife on the Galapagos Islands benefitted from a recent second visit, as he pushes his technical and creative boundaries. In The Storyteller, Chris Weston discusses his hobby – landscape photography – and how really getting to know a subject can make all the difference in this field. And this month experienced travel photographer Jeremy Horner kick-starts his own new column, Sense of Place, by remembering on his long-standing photo relationship with the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal, as well as the devastation caused by the recent earthquake.
I was tasked with exploring of the role of women in photography, so read my own thoughts, and those from a selection of photographers and photo industry partners, in this month’s Opinion column. And Victoria Hillman pens this month’s Guest Feature – wildlife researcher who has recently turned professional photographer, she shares with us her passion for photographing those smaller wildlife subjects, as well as developing her creative style.
