January 2020 - Flying High

At dusk on the first day of the new decade Wendy and I found ourselves finishing a Jurassic Coast walk at Ringstead Bay - a popular launching spot for paragliders. With dappled winter light playing on the sea I thanked my stars I had packed my camera for the hike. In the summer I often leave it behind as the sun is too high and harsh, but at this time of year the light on the south facing coast is often beguiling. The heavy sky was masking the sun as it set over Portland, but its effect was still subtly permeating the sky with evocative tones. All I had to do was wait for a flier to drift into my frame.

And so with this paraglider picture leading, we are flying high into a new decade with the f11 Photography Magazine, and I kick off Issue 96 Behind the Lens in West Africa photographing the locals in chaotic, bustling, vibrant Dakar, where I also carried out a Field Trial with the latest fast glass that Canon claims is the ultimate portrait lens. Then in the Opinion slot I wonder whether the art of composition is entirely intuitive. The two Post-Production Videos deconstruct ;the processing of a high contrast seascape and in Stepping Back I recall an evocative Christmas on the Isle of Skye.

We stay in the Hebrides as Guest Columnist Ruth Grindrod reveals her favourite locations on the Isle of Harris, which has become an increasingly popular destination for photographers, with good reason. Staying north for our Guest Feature, Ailsa McWhinnie talks to Scottish photographer Sophie Gerrard about her fascination with the people and landscape that makes up her home country. And then we turn the Spotlight on f11 Member Andrew Moore as he roams the streets of London at night, before focusing our attention to the Members' Gallery, where this month we feature some perceptively observed images from our f11 Members. 

To our new f11s who have joined over the Festive Season; welcome! We look forward to hearing from you and featuring your images in the Members' Gallery. And to all of you we here in the f11 office wish you a Happy New Year. I hope many exciting and interesting photographic experiences come your way in the new decade. Rest assured we’ll do our best to keep you motivated, inspired and informed.
