f11 Photography Magazine | February 2013
1st February 2013
Welcome to a very special anniversary edition of our Chasing the Light Magazine – we’ve now been going for a whole year! We all sincerely hope that you’re enjoying reading the magazine as much as we enjoy writing it. To celebrate our birthday we’ve got a bumper edition in store for you…
David provides his regular essential Compositional Tutorial, this time considering the value of patterns in photography and how best to employ them. For this month’s Field Trial, he explores how useful the light capabilities, speed and auto focus performance of cameras like the Canon EOS 1Dx are for general photography.
For Behind the Lens, we join David for the first leg of his amazing trip to Myanmar (Burma) as he shoots the temples of Bagan. As for Stepping Back, David revisits the iconic Machu Pichu remembering the vagaries of shooting in a South American location such as this – particularly negotiating the parasite bites from llamas! We’ve got another of our popular Video Tutorials and the Member’s Gallery, with constructive comments from David on your own work.
From other contributors we have Part 2 of Garry Ridsdale’s superb exploration into the intricacies of auto focusing. I add another article to The Bizz series, this time considering the necessary evil of self-promotion. And for this month’s Guest Feature we accompany Tony Worobiec on a fascinating series of American Road Trips, capturing the iconic sights along the famous highways of the USA.
Coming next month, David starts a seminal new series on Light, continues his Compositional Tutorial series and takes us on another trip to the intriguing location of Myanmar (Burma). We explore the potential of compact system cameras and join portrait photography Clara Molden for a glimpse into her exciting world.
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 who are 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.
