Issue 14 of David Noton’s Chasing the Light eZine is out now
Every month we publish an issue of our unique Chasing the Light eZine, exclusively for our worldwide following of f11 members - sign up for a free trial (join here). With features from behind the lens and on the road with world-renowned landscape and travel photographer David Noton as well as a wealth of other contributors, it combines stunning photography of the most spectacular locations on earth with technical features, video tutorials, humorous anecdotes, travel notes, a member’s gallery and industry news. The personable stories behind the photos make it an entertaining, informative and inspirational monthly read, as well as an invaluable information resource for all who love landscapes, travel and photography.
Excitingly, this month we have the launch of our new series Seeing the Light, making essential reading for all photographers. David kick-starts his exploration of light by contemplating exactly what it is, as he stands surveying the stunning night sky in Utah, USA. He also provides his regular essential Compositional Tutorial; this time considering the tool that is unique to photographers – selective focus – and the creative opportunities it provides.
For Behind the Lens, we join David for the second leg of his amazing trip to Myanmar (Burma) as he travels on to Mandalay, exploring the various photo opportunities on the way. And for Stepping Back, David relives his trip to Tasmania – the sights, the weather, and his travels with two maple leaf chairs (apparently, it’s a family thing…). David has prepared another of his popular Video Tutorials, providing readers with the unique opportunity to join him as he leads them through his editing process. And we have this month’s Member’s Gallery, with constructive comments from David on our readers’ own work.
From other contributors we have an in-depth review of compact camera systems in our Field Trial, penned by the photo triumvirate of David, Jonathan Gooding and Jonty Wilde. And for this month’s Guest Feature we dive into the world of shooting portraits of celebrities, joining renowned Telegraph photographer Clara Molden as she explains how she got started, the pleasures and pitfalls of her chosen area of photography, and her equipment choice.
