Sunsets?

Joe Cornish, Flow of Light I've just read an article in a popular outdoor photography magazine that was written in defense of shooting sunsets that I can't help but write a reaction to.   He does say in the article that he knows many photographers who think that "capturing a sunset as a creative end in itself is a waste of time". Well I think I probably more

John Blakemore

Unlike many of the photographers we have discussed in our ongoing Masters section, John wasn’t a photographer from childhood, being more obsessed with drawing wildlife. His passion for photography was inspired when his mother sent him an issue of Picture Post when he was in Africa when serving in the RAF as a nurse. This edition had some extracts from ‘The Family of Man’, a pivotal photographic exhibition that was put together by Edward Steichen which featured the work more

Spirit of Simplicity

Dark and threatening clouds hang over Great Gable's impressive southern flank. Representations of landscapes throughout western art history have taken a back seat to works depicting the dramas of human existence.

Composition – An Introduction to Balance

Balance in Photography The concept of balance in photography is not a new one, just this week I received another book on composition that says “The components of a great photograph should always be in balance” which is great as long as you know how to identify components and how much they weigh. The more detailed articles on composition and balance may end up drawing a fulcrum and showing two objects on it, one big and one little, with the more

Hidden Depths

From Beinn Maol Challum Ok, I admit it. I'm a bagger, a list ticker, a trophy collector. I've accepted what I am and I'm not going to change. Over the years I've collected lots of different things from Matchbox cars, tin soldiers and beer mats as a youngster to sea-washed bricks, mountain tops and footpaths as an adult. I love nothing more than pouring more

Robert Garrigus

Robert Garrigus volunteered his photographs to be the subject of Joe Cornish and Tim Parkin's photography critique and what a good couple of compositions they were too. Many thanks Robert.   Part One Part Two more
