f11 Members' | Your Vision, 2018
Published on: 12th April 2018
By David Noton
We at David Noton Photography are thrilled to commemorate the seventh year of our f11 Photography Magazine (and its predecessor, Chasing the Light) by announcing the launch of our f11 Your Vision 2018 photographic competition for fully registered f11 Members.
We all know that the most important equipment needed for our craft is a Photographer’s Eye. Indeed, the ability to see strong pictures in a multitude of situations is a fundamental skill to be nurtured by photographers of all levels. This is what our Your Vision Competition is all about: celebrating the process that gives birth to a picture, from the conception of an idea through to the point the shutter opens. The Judges will be looking for f11 Members’ pictures that display the most imaginative, original and perceptive photographic Vision – it’s as simple as that.
The Winners will receive a day of One-to-One Tuition with David Noton, arranged at a mutually convenient time and location, and there will also be Highly Commended Prizes kindly donated by Canon, Lee Filters, Adobe, Manfrotto and Páramo.
For the Overall Winning Image that Displays the Most Imaginative and Perceptive Vision:
A 24-hour Dawn-to-Dusk One-to-One Photographic Tuition Session with David Noton.
Plus a 12-month subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photographer’s Plan, donated by Adobe Systems Europe.
For the Collection of Three Images that Best Display a Unique Style and Vision:
A 24-hour Dawn-to-Dusk One-to-One Photographic Tuition Session with David Noton. Plus prize (TBC) donated by Manfrotto UK.
Highly Commended Prizes
For the Best Use of Light:
A Chasing the Light Filter Kit made by Lee Filters exclusively for David Noton Photography, donated by Lee Filters.
For the Best Capture of the Decisive Moment:
Prize (TBC) donated by Canon UK.
For the Best Spirit of Adventure:
£300 Voucher donated by Páramo.
For the Best Composition:
