f11 Photography Magazine | June 2013
1st June 2013
In this month’s edition, we continue our exploration of light in David’s series Seeing the Light as we consider twilight – exactly what it is, and how to use it’s lighting to best effect in our photography. And in the final article in his current series of Composition Tutorials, David talks us through the creation of his exquisite shot of Schwedagon Pagoda, Burma – the lucky confluence of a temple, a nun and a crow…
For Behind the Lens, David brings us up to date with his current photo activities in Umbria as he shoots the beautiful Italian landscape – amongst other things, in the May snow! And for Stepping Back, David reflects on the exertions of photography, and how a previous trip to Italy resulted in a summer without photography after a fall – as well as a major sense of humour failure. Beware!
Professional photographer and magazine regular, Garry Ridsdale, uses one of our Field Trials to put super-telephoto lenses through their paces, looking at how to use them and what to consider prior to purchasing one. This month landscape photographer David Ward, renowned for his unique eye for shape and form, has written our Guest Feature, providing an invaluable insight into his inspirations and approaches. In addition we have two instructional videos from David, including his usual exploration of post-production techniques.
To all our f11 Members, we hope you’re enjoying the ride, but we need your pictures. If you fancy being featured in the Member’s Gallery send us an email with three low-res jpegs and the story from behind the lens. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
And for those of you not yet an f11 member, take a look at the benefits of f11 membership here. By joining, you’ll receive full access to the monthly edition of our magazine, as well as other goodies.
