f11 Photography Magazine | May 2015
1st May 2015
Welcome to May 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
Earlier this year David and Wendy hosted another popular workshop in beautiful Iceland. So for this month’s Behind the Lens, David Noton presents a fascinating diary of the seven days they spent with the group, travelling around this challenging country in a Monster Truck with a Chain Gang to bag the best photo spots – this is accompanied by a Video Blog. In Part Six of our Low Down series on Exposure David considers the many shades of grey; then for this month’s How It’s Done he ‘scrabbles around in the dirt’, trying his hand at capturing the elusive simplicity of a fern in macro. In Stepping Back, David travels south to Andalucia to revisit his trip to the Spanish region back in 2000. And he also presents two of his ever-popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
With Spring upon us, in this month’s Hoddinott’s Hangout Ross Hoddinott introduces us to the subject he considers his party piece, dragons and damselflies along with some great practical pointers on getting out there and shooting your own. In The Storyteller, Chris Weston presents a thought-provoking piece on the four types of wildlife images he has created over the years, exploring the approaches and techniques he used for each along the way. And very much keeping to this wildlife theme, for this month’s Guest Feature I pose multi award-winning Dutch nature and wildlife photographer Jasper Doest a series of questions on his career documenting the world around us, accompanied throughout by a stunning portfolio of his unique work.
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.
