“HOW OF­TEN HAVE YOU SHOT A BEAU­TI­FUL SCENE BUT FELT SLIGHTLY DIS­AP­POINTED WITH THE RE­SULTS?”

Digital Photograper - - Welcome - MATT BENNETT, ED­I­TOR matthew.bennett@fu­turenet.com

From time to time on the mag­a­zine, we con­duct sur­veys ask­ing our read­ers what their favourite sub­jects for pho­tog­ra­phy are. But we can make a pretty good ed­u­cated guess that land­scapes will put in a pretty ir­re­sistible bid for the num­ber one slot.

Land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy tends to ap­pear far sim­pler than it ac­tu­ally is, though. How of­ten have you shot a beau­ti­ful scene but felt slightly dis­ap­pointed with the re­sults? We’ve all been there. That’s why, in this is­sue, pro land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher Mark Bauer has looked at the key skills and el­e­ments that turn a de­cent shot into some­thing that you’d proudly hang on your wall or en­ter into a com­pe­ti­tion. Turn p34 to be­gin read­ing his fea­ture.

Also in this is­sue, Stu Wil­liamson has put to­gether his guide to cre­ative nude pho­tog­ra­phy. He ex­plores the shoot­ing and edit­ing tech­niques in­volved in cre­at­ing stun­ning im­ages. Head over to p48 to read his ad­vice.

Else­where, our Staff Writer Peter Fenech has been look­ing at how to de­velop your edit­ing style. If you’re a se­ri­ous en­thu­si­ast or semi-pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher look­ing to make a name for your­self, this is a vi­tally im­por­tant el­e­ment of the process. Turn to p62 to read it.

We’ve also got shoot­ing tu­to­ri­als, in­ter­views with lead­ing pro­fes­sion­als, an in-depth ca­reer guide, prod­uct re­views and in­dus­try news to keep you abreast of the lat­est de­vel­op­ments, and to help in­form your fu­ture kit pur­chases.

We would still love to see your own im­ages of course, so please up­load them to our Face­book page at WWW.FACE­BOOK.COM/DIGITALPHOTOGRAPHERUK.
