f11 Photography Magazine | April 2014
30th April 2014
Welcome to April 2014’s edition of Chasing the Light Online Magazine for our f11 Members.
In this month’s instalment of Behind the Lens, we travel to the breath-taking Igazu Falls on the Brazil-Argentina-Paraguay border with David Noton as he endeavours to do photographic justice to this magnificent landmark, dodge Park Wardens, and negotiate monkeys with G&Ts. And in Stepping Back, David recounts for us his trip to the Taj Mahal in 1994; one where he shot the stunning featured image, but was remarkable in being one of only two occasions he threw the towel in on a trip.
In Seeing the Light David contemplates mixed lighting, where the photographer must grapple with the vagaries of light coming from multiple sources. And in the follow up to last month’s Hot Legs article and Video Blog, David and Jonathan Gooding present a brand new Video Blog that explores tripod heads. In addition there are a three of our post-production Video Tutorials, a feature of our magazine that seems highly popular amongst our f11 Members.
From other contributors, David Taylor continues his Taylor Made series with an article that reiterates the benefits of shooting raw. For this month’s How It’s Done feature, world-class surf photographer Brian Bielmann shares with us the story of his stunning shoot at the Banzai Pipeline, Hawaii in December 2013. And for this month’s Guest Feature we are delighted to welcome on board Alexandre Buisse, whose speciality is photographing the majesty of mountains. In this piece he shares with us his compositional and thematic approaches, as well as the challenges of shooting in such extreme environments.
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.
