I’ve just completed my latest article for David Noton’s f11 Magazine about my intense interest in the weather. This is part of a series of article helping to explain how we can use forecasting and also our knowledge to better predict the conditions we want, as landscape photographers, to photograph and this time concentrating on storms, lightning and atmospheric phenomena
I describe topics such as what causes the formation of storms, how does lightning form and atmospheric phenomena like Brocken Spectres and Halos:)
The article is available for f11 members which is a great resource for techniques and inspiration for the budding photographer of all types. The article is part of the October 2017 (Issue 69) edition.
October is the time to be out and about, treading boldly both behind the lens and on the road. That’s exactly what David’s been doing in the Yorkshire Dales, with fellow f11 regular Ross Hoddinott and their workshop group. Ross Hoddinott expands on what autumn means for him photographically. As for the other f11 columnists, Ben Pipe has been travelling through the Balkans, while Bas Meelker has been out and about testing Benro filters.
David has also been trying out filters, but those from the 1980s (including a tobacco grad!) for a tongue-in-cheek Stepping Back. The guest feature this month is an interview with the talented young Portuguese photographer Joel Santos, who was the Travel Photographer of the Year in 2016.
