A week in pho­tog­ra­phy

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

You can have all the tech­ni­cal knowl­edge in the world but ul­ti­mately the suc­cess of a pic­to­rial image hangs largely on how well it is con­structed. Some peo­ple have an in­stinc­tive eye for how to or­gan­ise the var­i­ous el­e­ments within a scene to make a vis­ually pleas­ing rec­tan­gle of colours, tones, lines and shapes. Most of us have to work at it a bit more. This week we present a guide to cre­at­ing com­po­si­tions with pow­er­ful im­pact. Also in this is­sue, we ex­plore the ex­tremes of cam­era tech­nol­ogy, from the cut­ting-edge Sony Al­pha 7R III to the de­cid­edly low-tech Lu­bi­tel TLR. And if you like pic­tures of peo­ple you’ll en­joy Peter Dench’s World Cup odyssey, the story be­hind Harry Bor­den’s por­trait of Hil­lary Clin­ton and, of course, your best shots from the por­trai­ture round of APOY 2018.
