f11 Photography Magazine | December 2014
1st December 2014
Welcome to December 2014’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
As we move into the festive period, we’ve got some treats for you this month from David Noton. First up in Behind the Lens, he continues the account of his wonderful trip to California in September, which includes bears, cubs, giant trees, and a waterfall dunking – gripping stuff! And of course, his usual Video Blog accompanies this commentary. As a bit of a winter warmer, this in this month’s Stepping Back David recounts the difficulties he encountered bagging that quintessential shot of Paradise, on the island of Moorea in Tahiti.
For The Low Down, David starts a new mini series on that essential yet complex topic of Exposure; in this piece he starts right at the beginning with metering. And for this month’s How It’s Done, David explains in our detailed Before-During-After format how he captured the full expanse of La Grotte Sarrazine in a vertical panorama during his recent trip to the Jura. He also presents his two usual Video Tutorials, one of which accompanies this How It’s Done article.
Elsewhere, Ross Hoddinott reminisces on a wonderful white Christmas he spent photographing the birds in his garden, which bagged one of his most successful images ever. In The Storyteller, we travel to Antarctica with Chris Weston to learn how he approached that special trip, but more importantly, what he brought home with him. And finally, we welcome on board Amsterdam-based photographer Jonathan Andrew: he reveals his fascination for shooting the dramatic landscapes of Scandinavia, and explains the ‘slowed-down’ approach that he uses he captures the true magic of that location.
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.
