f11 Photography Magazine | July 2014
1st July 2014
Welcome to July 2014’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
Fresh from a trip to the lush countryside of the Dordogne, David Noton has a bit of a French theme going in his articles this month. His Video Blog takes us to Paris, where he and Wendy shared a memorable anniversary trip; and in Stepping Back he explores the considerable influence of this country on his professional and personal life. In this month’s How It’s Done, David explores the artistic merit of his ‘Balmoral Blur’, and for the Low Down he presents Part One of an article trio on the important topic of Do-It-Yourself Printing, ruminating on the pros and cons of ‘doing it yourself’ as opposed to sending the job out, your choice of printer, and how to get the best from it. He has also included his usual two Post Production Video Tutorials, for your continued viewing pleasure.
From other contributors, we’re delighted to welcome onboard world-class wildlife photographer Chris Weston for the first in his brand new regular column: The Storyteller. In this month’s piece, Chris explains how he works with a 50mm ‘standard’ lens to ensure he is able to make a connection with his wildlife subjects, importantly allowing them to come to him, rather than the other way around. And in Taylor Made, David lays out his seven commandments of photography, the fixed and immutable laws that must be obeyed to the letter! For our Guest Feature, born-and-bred New Yorker James Maher reveals how he goes about capturing the vibrant, diverse street life of this great metropolis, how it’s changing right now, and how this significant transformation is affecting his work – a fascinating read.
To all our f11 Members, we hope you’re enjoying our magazine but we need your pictures. If you fancy being featured in the Members' 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.
