Loitering in the Countryside at Night

It was only a matter of time before I ended up loitering in the countryside at night. This series is my attempt at challenging my own relationship with and understanding of the landscape around me. When I was contemplating my next project, night time seemed an obvious choice for a few reasons. It would be technically and physically difficult and would certainly initially be fairly unpredictable in terms of what I would achieve photographically. Starting with no plan was as more

Leeming and Paterson

As landscape photographers we are fundamentally solitary predators. Away before the dawn and skulking home long after sundown. Shying the pack culture. Lost in "the zone" of image capture meditation. It is a personal space of peace and calm I love to frequent. A place I feel I am at my best, away from intrusions and thoughts that invade much of the reality of the every day. And indeed, when more

The Myth of Universal Colour

While we were working on the Big Camera comparison, one of the things that became quite clear was that the different sensor devices we looked at were producing images whose colour was quite different. More importantly, when we tried to fix the colour from one to look like another, it proved impossible. This rung a few bells with me from a couple of years ago when I was looking at whether it was possible to simulate Fuji Velvia 50 by more

John Parminter

We're talking to a fell runner turned photographer this issue (I wish I was as fit!) and someone with a fascinating take on the classic mountain photography genre. What photographic moments have most transformed your thinking about photography (or have just had you jumping up and down for joy!?) This is the hardest question Tim and I actually left it last to answer; I do know though that I am not more

Truth and Lies in Photography

A recent article written by Ian Thompson on his wave photograph at Porth Cawl generated just a little bit more feedback than I or Ian expected. The main gist of the comments were along the lines of ‘this has gone too far’ or ‘this isn’t photography’. I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the idea of truth and photography in a little more detail. The Camera Doesn’t Lie A very famous phrase suggests that more

Joe, Andrew and an IQ180

At about the same time that we were testing the cameras for the Big Camera Test, Joe Cornish was pondering the possibly of purchasing the IQ180 and in the last few weeks has been getting to grips with it. Tim Parkin and Andrew Nadolski accompanied him on a walk through Bilsdale which proved too windy to get the photograph we had planned but we stopped on the way back when a group of larches caught our eye in the more

On Meaning in Photography

Photographic description alone will never be inspirational, never make a heart beat faster, never bring a tear to another's face. To achieve these things emotional messages must somehow be woven seamlessly into the photographic representation. But beyond what is baldly described by the light captured in a scene, the exact meaning of photographs is elusive. We read them but it’s not like reading prose, there’s no dictionary that we can refer to for definitions. Every viewer reads them in more
