f11 Photography Magazine | July 2012
1st July 2012
Welcome to Issue 6 of the Chasing the Light Magazine.
This month we get a bit technical with a series of three features looking at the state of play in the world of modern cameras. The Low Down asks “How Many Pixels Do We Need?” The Field Trial compares in “The Battle of the Pixels” the new Canon 5D Mk III with the Nikon D800E on a hilltop in Dorset with interlocking tripod legs, and The Test takes the same 5D mkIII out on a series of shoots over a week to see how it performs in the only place that matters. Behind the Lens continues in the hills of Sri Lanka, while the Composition Tutorial is sinking in the mud of a Mekong Delta rice paddy. This month’s Guest Feature looks at the trials and tribulations of photography afloat with fellow pro Ian Badley “Rolling Around On the Crest of a Wave”. You can positively smell the salt water; shooting on a heaving deck in the Solent is a world away from the challenges of landscape photography and Ian’s expose is fascinating stuff.
As usual we’ve a spread of images from all over the world in your f11 Member’s Gallery, with constructive comments by yours truly. To all our f11 Members we hope you’re enjoying the ride, but we need your pictures. If you fancy being featured in the Members' gallery send us an email with 3 low res jpegs with the story from behind the lens.
We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
