f11 Photography Magazine | February 2015
1st February 2015
Welcome to February 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
This is the Third Anniversary of the launch of our magazine, so to mark the occasion we have some goodies in store for you, not least of which is the announcement of the launch of David Noton’s new ebook, David Noton: Light, which all f11 Members can download as a freepdf. For non-f11 Members, the ebook is available as a pdf from our website or as an ibook from itunes, priced at £9.99.
Back to this month’s magazine: In this month’s Stepping Back David Noton reminisces on the role Vietnam has played throughout his life, both personally and photographically. The bustle of this country cries out for a motion blur approach, and for his How It’s Done David talks us through the careful preparation required for a motion blur shot taken on a roadside near Phong Nha, Quảng Bình Province.
For The Low Down, David continues his new mini series on exposure by considering the workings of the heart and soul of a digital camera, the sensor, and its sensitivity, or ISO setting. And he also presents his ever-popular Fundamentals of Post-Production Videos.
In Hoddinott’s Hangout, Ross Hoddinott urges us to get our creative juices flowing by trying some photography that highlights nature or wild places in a more abstract or original way. In The Storyteller, Chris Weston introduces time-lapse photography, explaining how we can get started with this to reveal aspects of life that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. And for this month’s Guest Feature, we’re delighted to welcome renowned photographer Jeremy Horner on board, as he presents a spectacular portfolio of imagery that explores the importance of colour in India.
We are also thrilled to commemorate the Third Anniversary of the launch of our magazine by announcing the Winners of David Noton’s Your Vision 2015 photographic competition. The winning and highly commended images are displayed in this month’s Member’s Gallery Special Edition, along with comments on each from both the Photographer and Judges.
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.
