f11 Photography Magazine | January 2015
1st January 2015
Happy New Year! And welcome to January 2015’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
In October David Noton took a spur of the moment trip to the little known yet beautiful region of eastern France known as the Jura, and in this month’s Behind the Lens we join him as he journeys there to capture the autumn colours of the limestone gorges, making a timely visit to the poignant Somme area en route – this is accompanied by his usual Video Blog. In Stepping back he presents the first of our South American inspired articles in this edition, reminiscing on his productive shoot in the Atacama Desert at the end of the film era in 2003. For The Low Down, David continues his new mini series on exposure, this time covering exposure modes – and he also presents his two usual Video Tutorials.
In Hoddinott’s Hangout, Ross Hoddinott explores his long-terms relationship with the beautiful wilderness of Dartmoor National Park, providing us with his top location and technique tips for capturing the moor’s majesty in winter. In The Storyteller, Chris Weston reviews the suitability of the Fuji X-T1 mirrorless camera for his style of wildlife photography. And finally, we welcome back Ben Pipe to pen this month’s Guest Feature, which continues the South America theme: at the beginning of 2014 he spent four months on that continent, so here he blogs about his favourite locations, images and stories from that epic trip, including a 1,772 step hike up to his shoot location at Machu Picchu, Peru, and a two-hour crawl through the mines at Cerro Rico, Bolivia.
To all our f11 Members, we hope you’re enjoying our magazine but we need your pictures. If you fancy being featured in the Member’s Gallery and entered into our 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.
