It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Peter Dombrovskis at On Landscape. His work and approach to photography embodies a lot of what we love about our chosen passion. However, as mentioned in the article about Peter’s new book in this issue, you can have the support of the biggest institutions and greatest technical expertise and yet things can still go wrong. Peter’s latest book, despite being full of stunning images, leaves a lot to be desired in terms of reproduction and/or pre-press. This, perhaps, is one of the consequences of the constant drive to cut costs, printing the book in China meant that there was nobody available on press to check the results. Getting a good balance of cost effectiveness and quality becomes important as soon as we consider those pesky customers. We all would like the best photography equipment and would love to create that perfect book or exhibition but when your passion hits the commercial road, compromises inevitably have to be made. We make do with less expensive cameras or buy second hand, we get the slightly smaller monitor or a less powerful laptop. The good thing is that whatever compromise we make, it shouldn’t affect our creativity. After all, all we need to produce creative work is our eyes, brain and ability to use a camera to translate that into a final image.

The Myth of Control

Whilst writing the article about the recent Peter Dombrovskis book, it quickly became clear that there were no real, definitive versions available for his pictures that could be used to say “This is what they were supposed to look like!”.   Continue reading → more

The Photography of Peter Dombrovskis, Journey Into the Wild

I think it’s safe to say that the new Dombrovskis retrospective was one of my most anticipated books of recent years and sadly, upon having time to study the book at length, it’s also one of the most disappointing. This   Continue reading → more

End Frame: Dune before Sunrise, Egypt (2010) by Stephan Furnrohr

The image iIt’s taken around dawn; the photographer is facing north, the warm light from the east catches the right- hand side of the dunes, the west-facing slopes reflect the cool blue from the sky. Continue reading → more

Jane Simmonds

It’s interesting to see the enthusiasm with which techniques such as intentional camera movement and multiple exposures have been taken up, and the variety of images that result. Continue reading → more

Personal Style

When I write about photography, I do so from my own perspective and based on my own experiences throughout my ongoing development. That journey will end when I do, and I believe strongly that my images will continue to change   Continue reading → more
