f11 Photography Magazine | May 2014
1st May 2014
Welcome to May 2014’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
In March David spent a few great weeks in Iceland, and in this month’s installment of Behind the Lens and the accompanying Video Blog he shares with us goings-on of the first part of that trip, as the last few weeks of winter gripped this unique landscape. From wintery climes to warm ones: in Stepping Back, David recalls his foray into wildlife photography as he and Wendy worked their way across Kruger National Park, South Africa in 2008 in a Land Rover, a trip that bagged this incredibly effective shot of an elephant’s face and eye.
‘Being there, at the right place at the right time, is a fairly obvious fundamental requirement for photographic success. But where?’ In this month’s Low Down David analyses the key elements needed to plan a successful photo mission. And as well as his usual two Post-Production Video Tutorials, David also presents a Video Tutorial on working with a tilt-and-shift lens.
From other contributors, David Taylor continues his Taylor Made series with an article examining the arguments for and against HDR – accompanied by opinions from some rather opinionated photo pros! For this month’s How It’s Done feature, renowned street photographer Ronya Galka returns to pen an intriguing piece on her recent commissioned shoot that took place the City of London. And for this month’s Guest Feature we are delighted to welcome on board David Mayhew, as he introduces us to the adrenalin charged world of storm chasing in the USA, with some spectacular photo results.
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 us an email with three low-res jpegs and the story from behind the lens; we’ll look forward to hearing from you.
