f11 Photography Magazine | April 2015
1st April 2015
Welcome to April 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members, published just in time for you to enjoy over the Easter break!
February saw the launch of Canon’s new, highly anticipated, high-resolution camera, the EOS 5DS, and in this month’s Behind the Lens David Noton recounts the second part of the story behind his involvement its launch, as he continues to put it through its paces on South Africa’s Western Cape, experiencing the highs and lows that inevitably accompany an important assignment with brand new equipment – this is partnered by his Video Blog. In Part Five of our Low Down series on Exposure, David explores the history and technique behind exposure latitude, offering his solution to making the most of the camera in our hands. And with Poldark currently airing on Sunday evening here in the UK, in Stepping Back he takes us on a timely return to Wheal Coates mine, reminiscing on his love affair with shooting the Cornish coast. He also presents two of his ever-popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
Elsewhere, we’re delighted to welcome back experienced travel photographer Jeremy Horner, as he pens this month’s How It’s Done to reveal how he shot his stunning image of a lightning bolt above Potala Palace in Tibet. In Hoddinott’s Hangout, Ross Hoddinott poses the question ‘Do we still need filters’ – and for the landscape photographer at least, he concludes the answer is a resounding ‘Yes!’ This month Chris Weston reveals the anatomy of a wildlife photography in The Storyteller, as he analyses exactly how he went about capturing his challenging shot of lions hunting under star trails. And as spring arrives, we celebrate with a Guest Feature by multi-award winning garden photographer Clive Nichols, as he talks about his career to date, his inspirations and his technique – all accompanied by his beautiful images.
