f11 Photography Magazine | December 2012
1st December 2012
Welcome to Issue 11 of Chasing the Light Magazine from your new editor, Freya. I’m absolutely thrilled to be introducing this December edition, which is packed with a whole bunch of gems to inspire and inform your photography.
David provides his usual Compositional Tutorial, this time leading us through Reflections on Symmetry as he works on the shore of Buttermere in the British Lake District. This month’s Field Trial continues with Part 2 of David’s Soft Wear for Harsh Climes series, this time with a particular emphasis on layers (of the clothing, not Photoshop, kind!).
For Stepping Back, David explores the challenges of capturing one scene through the seasons to create a graphic representation of the passing of time near his home in Dorset. In the third of his video tutorials, David presents another Fundamentals of Post Production demonstration, and there’s the Member’s Gallery, with constructive comments from David on your own work.
From other contributors we have the second installment of The Bizz by my good self, where we delve into the dark art of Self Publishing. And we embrace the art of environmental portraits with this month’s Guest Feature from Rod Edwards. His work in the area has been highly acclaimed, and here he shares some his best shots, as well as some of his secrets to achieving that ultimate record of personality and location.
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.
