    on D810 Live View Split Screen

    Interesting stuff Tim. It was the Live View improvements that most interested me too. When I've used a D800 in the past I've always felt its LV function was a poor relation to my Canon 5D3's. The dual window feature is definitely of interest, I often use LV to check my DoF [...]

    Valerie, your work continues to grow and become more focused and expressive. You certainly do have a feel for the desert landscape! Best wishes to you. G Dan Mitchell

    on On Vision… Part 1

    Thank you David, absolutely fascinating - I think of you as a sort of photographer philosopher. I don't know if there is any other magazine focussing on landscape photography where you could read such stuff? Looking forward to the next part.

One of my biggest goals in creating On Landscape was to nurture a more diverse culture of landscape photography, one more accepting of the different reasons for taking pictures and the different genres of the final output. Instead of the hobbyist, the professional, the romantic and the contemporary all solidifying the walls between them I hope that each can be more accepting.

One of the biggest barrier seems to be between the contemporary and the romantic and it is true that each photographer will always have his or her own tastes, just as they have their own tastes in food or music. However, everyone can definitely learn to appreciate and possibly learn to love any sort of art (or food, or music) but not without trying.

My first experience of Jem Southam’s work was taking a masterclass with him at the Lowry Centre in Manchester. I wasn’t a big fan of Jem’s work but I knew I should try to expand my outlook. After spending the day discussing photography in general and his work in particular I began to see past my own prejudices. To this end I’m proud to include Andrew Nadolski’s interview with Jem this issue and pleased that he has allowed us to include high resolution images from his ‘River – Winter’ book.

We hope you will see On Landscape as a gateway to see the best of landscape photography in all it’s many and varied forms – if you think we’re missing out on some of that please let us know, since creating On Landscape we’ve had to realise it is no longer just our magazine, it’s yours as well.

We’ve also included the story of David Clapp’s introduction to Iceland and his social media busting Aurora photograph that has managed to garner 3,500 shares since posted. David will be talking in more detail about the creation of this image in the next issue.

.. and don’t forget we’ll be adding the 4×4 section over the following few days and the PDF version will be released in about a weeks time. Until next issue then, which will be a ‘Focus on Imaging’ special – keep an eye on the news page for updates.

Stories from the Land

Jem Southam is critically regarded as one of the most important British photographers of the last twenty five years. Working with a 10×8 view camera and colour negative film, his patient pursuit of his art seems at odds with the frenetic   [ read ]

Seduced by Art – Photography Past & Present

A visit to London this weekend with my parents-in-law took me to a few different exhibitions. The Ansel Adams exhibition has already been reviewed so I’ll be writing instead about the “Seduced By Art: Photography Past and Present” exhibition at   [ read ]

I love Iceland! There you go I’ve said it. It’s a new love affair, and one which I feel very strongly about, but I have to admit, that it has never been particular high on my list of locations to   [ read ]

Just before Christmas we asked our readers for a bunch of questions that we could put to Joe Cornish when he visited next and the response was fantastic. In the end we recorded two hours of audio but to keep installments to   [ read ]
