f11 Photography Magazine | April 2018
1st April 2018
I’m confident this April 2018 edition of f11 Photography Magazine, our 75th, contains yet more inspiring, informative and stimulating features for our growing band of f11 members. What do you associate with Colombia? You may be surprised what a colourfully vibrant and beautiful place it is when you read my Behind the Lens; Colombia, Part One piece. It’s a welcoming place, too, as I found when shooting the Faces of Colombia story for our What’s in a Picture slot. I really enjoyed printing my images from that trip, and so I’ve continued our Workflow series by examining the pros and cons of DIY printing. Film scanning also gets the Low Down treatment this month as a result of an f11 request. Other f11 requests prompted both of this month’s two post-production videos, one on Lightroom’s clarity slider (what does it actually do?), and one on adjustment brush use and settings. Do you have something you’d like to see covered by us? Let us know; your wish is our command.
The new monthly f11Spotlight feature seems to be going well; this month we shine the light on Philadelphia-based fine-art photographer Mandy Seligman. Do you have a body of work for our spotlight? We’re looking for f11 Members with stimulating, original work and an interesting story. You know how to reach us!
This month’s Members’ Gallery includes a few f11 images featuring the use of dense filters to achieve long exposures. My views on that look are well known, but Ross Hoddinott has a different opinion, which he extols in this month’s Hangout. Meanwhile, our Guest Feature this month is on the work of unit stills photographer Samuel Dore, who broke into the field by shooting stills on his own award-winning short films.
You know what I’m going to say now; this is your magazine, so don’t hold back on your suggestions, they help us enormously. And, of course, we want to see your pictures in the Members’ Gallery, where they’ll receive constructive appraisal from yours truly. Oh, and if you’re enjoying our monthly offerings, do spread the word.
