Julie Hamlin on Black and White Photography
"....Black and white photography is not about converting a color image to monochrome. It's not as easy as merely eliminating the color saturation in post production. It is, and should be, much more complex than that...."
Julie will be sharing how light and shadows catch her attention and how they contribute to a compelling black and white image.
Ashley Kaplan on "The Day the Sun Didn't Rise"
"On September 9, 2020, in the middle of a global pandemic, amidst a devastating wildfire season, I woke one morning to a sight that is forever seared in my visual memory.....As a photographer and lover of light, I had never imagined waking to a world where the sun didn't rise...."
Ashley highlights the burning issue of wildfires. Her personal account of the blazes in San Francisco last year give us a spectacular and unsettling insight into these devastating events and the consequences of our planet's warming cycle.
And there's more.....
As if that wasn't enough, we also have articles by Shannon Douglas, Anna Hurley, Andrea Anderson, Magda Hudy, Michelle Baisa and Kristi Gillette (full line up to be confirmed). Plus our very own Bex Maini returns with "8 ideas", her top tips to use window light and next up on "What Cate Wants Next" are Lensbaby's Omni Filters (including an exclusive review of a new wand to be released this autumn). Altogether.... Whoop!
