f11 Photography Magazine | November 2014
1st November 2014
Welcome to November 2014’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
This month we are running a bit of a New World theme…
For Behind the Lens, we join David and Wendy on the first part of their recent trip to California’s Sequoia National Park in September, sharing the pain of roadblocks that prevent photographers reaching their location in time – there is also an accompanying Video Blog. In Stepping Back, David considers the best locations for shooting autumn colours, concluding that it was in Nova Scotia that he experienced the Best Autumn Colours Ever, Anywhere. For his Fundamentals of Post Production section he presents one Video Tutorial, along with an article on the Ten Commandments of Editing a Photo Shoot – a must-read for any photographer. And this month David pens an edition of The Bizz series: with the closing date for our 2015 Your Vision Competition looming, he contemplates the benefits and pitfalls of competitions generally.
To conclude the New World theme, our New York-based contributor James Maher explores the story behind his iconic shot of Bow Bridge in Central Park in How It’s Done. In The Storyteller, Chris Weston considers the convergence of stills photography and video in the world of modern media, and how he has taken advantage of this to indulge his passion for storytelling. Ross Hoddinott brings a seasonal flavour to his Hangout series, revealing the photographic potential of fungi and providing plenty of practical advice on having a go at shooting these intriguing subjects yourself. And for our Guest Feature we travel to Japan to join photographer Benjamin Parks, as he introduces us to his fascinating portfolio of Tokyo street portraits.
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.
