It’s a Friday morning and I’m rushing; to get this newsletter out, to meet another approaching f11 deadline, to load The Loved One for a weekend in a Welsh field, to respond to all those red flagged e-mails, to book my transport to Cologne, to prepare my talks for Photokina, to research our trip to the Vercors (Google it!), to record this month’s post-production videos, to understand how we enable pdf f11 downloads, to edit the video blog from Galicia, to collate the Your Vision judging, to clean the grill after last night’s barbecue, to cut the grass after the rains have returned, and to pack for Sunday’s flight to Ireland. With all that in mind would it be ok if I keep this brief and to the point? 

What’s news?

I’ll be at Photokina in 2018, September 25 - 27.
We’re bringing our Road Show to Eastbourne, November 24 - see you there?  
The judging of the f11 Member’s Your Vision 2018 competition is taking place now

...and I missed getting the July newsletter out. I went to Le Mans back in June and struggled to sleep, not because of Fernando Alonso and co, but because of my mate Heinz’s snoring. But what fun I had panning on Jenson Button’s car as the light’s came on - if you haven’t already, you can read about it all in Issue 78, the July edition of the f11 Photography Magazine.

In Issue 79, our August 2018 edition we have for you, our loyal f11 Members, two pieces from our recent journeys to Peneda-Geres National Park and the Douro Valley in northern Portugal; Behind the Lens, Part Two with an accompanying Video Blog. Maybe my How it’s Done feature in this issue should really be called how it’s not done as I identify common processing faults I see all too often when judging competitions. On that subject my post-production videos consider the use of RGB tone curve adjustments in response to an f11 Member’s request.

The f11 Spotlight returns this month to highlight nature-loving f11 Member Ginny Scholes, her life afloat, and her photography. If you’re an f11 with an interesting story and a cohesive set of pictures we’d like to hear from you; the Spotlight may be turned on you too. 

What’s In a Picture this month is Chateau Peyrepertuse, a castle in a dramatic setting, as you can see from the image above, in a region steeped in history. Meanwhile Bas Meelker reports from Tuscany, while our August Guest Feature is on Brighton based landscape photographer Finn Hopson. And as there’s no Member’s Gallery this month because of the Your Vision Competition, we’ve a Stepping Back from the Jungfrau in Switzerland. 

Please do not be reticent in sending in your suggestions (to [email protected]) on what you’d like to see addressed in future editions of the f11 Photography Magazine. We will act on them all. And by the way, work on uploading all the back issues steadily continues; every month a few more go up. We have recently had to impose a modest price rise to £41 for the annual subscription merely to track inflation, but as an f11 you do have unlimited access to all of those back issues, and their worth as an information resource is enhanced with the Search f11 facility you’ll find at the top of every web page, all of which makes your f11 Membership more and more valuable with every edition. If you’re in agreement with that do spread the word with the odd word, share, comment or post. 

Now, what lenses to take to Ireland? Tilt and shift? I think so.

Keep exposing!
