Issue 2 - March 2012

Issue: 01 March 2012

Chasing the Light; it’s what we do. Every photographer knows the highs and lows of the hunt; the waiting, the frustrations, and finally the exhilaration when it all comes together with a winning image as a reward. That’s what this eZine is all about; the joy of photography, pure and simple, nothing else. No advertising, no waffle, no techno babble; this is the word from muddy fields, lofty hill tops, windy cliffs and damp forests around the world, behind the lens, doing what we do.

Welcome to the second issue of our Chasing the Light eZine. This month we're taking you araound the world again; Behind the Lens in Corsica and Stepping Back in Nepal whilst considering composition at Glastonbury, minimal colour in Ireland and long lens landscapes in Italy.

The first Member's Gallery also features contributions from f11 members from Australia, Sri Lanka, Germany, England and the Netherlands. We also have free for f11 members to download the first Edition of Despatches+ covering the years Sept 2001 - Dec 2012.  

 

I am excited about the international community of photographers we are building through this eZine, together we can make this a truly unique monthly publication.

Behind the Lens, Corsica: Part 2 - The Best of Times

Behind the Lens, Corsica: Part 2 - The Best of Times

Mountains seem to dominate the skyline everywhere in Corsica. That's certainly the case here; we're snapping the tent poles into place near Zonza in the heart of the southern range surrounded by a landscape of jagged, knife edged peaks. Things are looking up...

Composition Tutorial - The Frame

Composition Tutorial - The Frame

Art is all about composition; and the arrangement of shapes within a frame is an art in itself that makes or breaks our pictures; either introducing balance, harmony and impact or robbing them entirely of the ability to draw the viewer in.

Sitting on a mound above the Piano Grande is the village of Castelluccio. From afar it looks enchanting, up close the pull isn't quite so strong; it's a pretty scruffy mountain villagio, although we have gorged on the best agnello scottadito ever there. There's no getting away from its setting though; all around are the snow capped mountains of the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini.

The Low Down - Minimal Colour, Less is More

Where are the best beaches in the world? The Maldives, Seychelles, Australia, Brazil, Philippines, Hawaii? Nah, give me a remote northern strand any day; the Hebrides for example, or Ireland. Inch Strand is a three mile stretch of sand sticking out like a thumb from the southern edge of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry.

"That's where we're staying tonight" said Lill as he pointed to a distant settlement clinging to the hillside. The prospect of hunkering down for the night was tempting, but there was just a small fly in the ointment; between us and the beckoning tea house was yet another knee crunching 1000m descent and lung bursting ascent. Such are the joys of Himalayan trekking. Maybe next trip we'd do the Cotswolds.
