Inside this issue
Just a quick note to say that issue 41 is out now. It's been quite difficult to get the last issue out as we've been trying to move over to a new subscription system after some issues with a previous system. Teething problems mean we haven't had chance to get this working completely satisfactorily yet so please, please get in touch if you have any problems. We'll be spending the next couple of days trying to iron out the last few issues (fingers crossed).
Whether you’re a fan of large format photography or not (I am, many think I’m nuts for it) one of the things that most large format photographers do that could arguably be beneficial to any photographer is the use of a ‘unwanted scenery exclusion device’ - normally a piece of card with a oblong hole in it.

In most photographers lives there are 'epiphanic’ moments where things become clear, or new directions are formed. What were your two main moments and how did they change your photography? It's difficult to say about epiphanies - they never quite seem it at the time but I suppose the first was probably when I went out with my wife on a very early dawn patrol to Brimham Rocks. It was more
Jon Brock and I met up in Port Mulgrave recently and we ended up having a brief chat about his self published book, "Vision and Craft" as featured in a previous issue of On Landscape. We recorded the chat for your enjoyment although make sure you've been to the loo before you listen to it :-) more
Last Issue had a location guide for the Bamburgh area - somewhere you’ll agree is pretty well known already. Well this issue we’re going for a nearby location that very few people have been too. Tim Parkin It’s called Rumbling Kern and sits just below the ‘bathing house’ of Earl Grey (yes, he of the tea persuasion and also of sixteen children! You’d need a whole house more
