f11 Photography Magazine | September 2014
1st September 2014
Welcome to September 2014’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
In this month’s Behind the Lens article, David Noton describes his recent productive photo trip to the market at Issigeac in the Pays de Bergerac to capture the bustle of colour found there, as well as many other happy hours spent capturing the Gallic idyll of the region; this is all accompanied by his usual Video Blog. And the Low Down continues with Part Three of David’s articles on printing, this time getting down to the nitty-gritty of making a print, including discussions on the topics of colour management and soft proofing; our two Post Production Video Tutorials complement this piece, with live printing action from David. And this month we have an instalment of our Stepping Back series, this time travelling back with David to 1998 as he visited the iconic location of Tiananmen Square in Beijing, which included a rather hairy encounter with the People’s Liberation Army.
Chris Weston is currently on assignment on the Katmai Peninsula, Alaska; in this month’s installment of The Storyteller he recounts how he first discovered this remote and pristine area, where he has been able to produce his stunning images of the bears that live there. Ross Hoddinott continues his Hangout series by writing about his own home patch of Cornwall, and the inspiration and benefits this popular location has always brought to his photography, all accompanied by some of his favourite shots. For How It’s Done, Ian Badley continues the Cornish theme, sharing the story behind his spectacular shot of a super-yacht in the 2010 Pendennis Cup Regatta off the coast of Falmouth. And for our Guest Feature, Norway-based landscape and nature photographer Orsolya Haarberg reveals her fascination for Iceland, along with some of the locations and subjects that have particularly caught her imagination over her numerous visits to this magical land.
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.
