f11 Photography Magazine | October 2014
1st October 2014
Welcome to October 2014’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
In this month’s Video Blog, David Noton reminisces on the glorious summer he has spent photographing his home patch of Dorset. Then he concludes his Low Down mini series on printing, first by considering our options for hanging prints, and then by testing a range of papers and feeding through his results to reach some conclusions on the best paper choice for the job. This month David ‘Steps Back’ in time to 1,628 BC and the cataclysmic eruption that created the island of Thera, then fast-forwards to contemplate his photo shoots on the same island, now Santorini, in the 80s and 90s. As ever, he has also created two Post Production Video Tutorials to assist your own post-production technique.
In The Storyteller, Chris Weston concludes his two-part Bear Necessities series by contemplating the challenge he set himself when he embarked on his latest trip to the Katmai peninsula, namely shooting something different, and how he has employed mindfulness to achieve this. And in contrast to the last edition’s piece about his home patch, this month Ross Hoddinott continues his Hangout series by writing about his inaugural visit to the Tatras in Slovakia in 2012, a stunning mountain range with some photo location gems that Ross shares with us here. How It’s Done comes with a health warning for those that suffer from vertigo: Alex Buisse returns to describe how he shot his jaw-dropping shot of world-class rock climbers on Paciencia, the hardest route on the Eiger’s north face. This month we also welcome back Rod Edwards, as he shares with us his thoughts on lighting portrait shots, along with some useful tips for Photoshop adjustments. And for our Guest Feature, we’re delighted to welcome into the fold renowned underwater photographer Mario Vitalini, as he introduces us to a whole new world of photo opportunity under the waves of the world’s greatest oceans and seas.
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, 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.
