f11 Photography Magazine | June 2015
1st June 2015
Welcome to June 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
Vietnam is an exotic, unique and welcoming country, and in January David Noton visited it for the fourth time – in this month’s Behind the Lens he records the first six days of his trip as a travelogue, photographing his way around the northern Quảng Bình Province. In Stepping Back David travels back in time to 1950s England, revisiting an old family portrait to discuss the value of such images as documentary records years later.
In Part Seven of our Low Down series on Exposure David moves onto the aesthetics that shape the look of our photography: whether these be bright and airy high-key pictures, moody and low-key, or somewhere between, he offers practical advice and solutions to exposing for these with success – there is also an accompanying Video Tutorial. And he also presents two of his ever-popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
Meanwhile in this month’s Hoddinott’s Hangout, Ross Hoddinott bravely tackles the contentious issue of photographing animals in captivity, contemplating the relative merits of both arguments. In The Storyteller, Chris Weston explains how he overcame a photographic crisis while recently shooting images of the beautiful white horses of the Camargue in France. And for this month’s Guest Feature we are joined by renowned Dutch landscape Bas Meelker, as he recounts his creative journey, and how he has learnt to master the supposed challenge of photographing his homeland, the Netherlands.
To all our f11 Members, we hope you’re continuing to enjoy our magazine but we need your pictures. If you fancy being 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. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
