Inside this issue
Issue number nine brings a few regular features together and although we don’t have as many articles as some recent issues, I hope the quality makes up for the quantity. The survey results from last issue were very interesting with the majority of people saying that the videos were the prime content and the only real surprise was the lack of interest in book reviews and featured reader articles (although I imagine the featured reader article is of immense interest to the featured reader). We’ve dropped both of those for this issue but they will be making sporadic comebacks and we may change the format of the featured reader in order to profile more people.

We tried to record some critiques last Friday but had some annoying technical glitches so will be trying these again this week so we can include some in the next issue. The other item of interest was ‘printing’ and not just home printing but also recommending printing services for the best results and also how to frame prints. We’ll start a small series on this in the next couple of months.

Were talking to Peter Hyde this issue, a great photographer from Lancashire who has been recommended by a few people as someone we need to talk to. We hope you enjoy the read and Peter’s pictures. In most photographers lives [ read ]
We’ve all seen them on photo-sharing sites: images of grand vistas with strong colours, dramatic perspectives, apocalyptic lighting. We’ve read the comments: “wow, great shot”, “wow, amazing colours”, “stunning composition”, “I’m blown away”, etc., etc., etc. We may have seen [ read ]
