It’s been a mostly DIY couple of weeks up here in the Highlands. I’ve been building a second shed in order to clear space in the “On Landscape” shed to allow me to create better videos and also to develop a dark room (see what I did there!). That doesn’t mean I haven’t been out and about though. Robert White have sent over two samples of a re-release of a pair of classic Cooke lenses, the PS945 (a soft, glowy focus portrait lens on 5x4 and an incredible fast wide on 10x8!) and the XVa which is a triple convertible like Ansel Adams used on his 10x8. I’ll write more about them later but it was great to get out with a large-format camera again. As part of the testing, we also met up with Michela Griffiths who runs our featured photographer column. We spent a great day out and about at the top end of the Kintyre peninsula.

We should also add some apologies for our website running very slowly for some reason. We optimised it for speed early in the year but something in a WordPress upgrade has slowed things down dramatically. We’ll be rewriting the theme over the Christmas/New Year period and also changing the mobile theme (which wasn’t working very well). Thanks for bearing with us while we do this. Once complete, the website should be extremely fast as we now have a top-end dedicated server to run everything on.

In the meantime, it’s good to know that the PDF doesn’t rely on the WordPress theme and hence is fast to download and easy to use once you have done so.

David Ward Exhibition Talks

A couple of weeks back I visited the Joe Cornish gallery to give a talk, along with Joe Cornish and Lizzie Shepherd, at David Ward's exhibition, "Overlooked". The exhibition itself is fantastic and is well worth a visit but just in case you missed the talks, we recorded them all for posterity. We are publishing the talks in reverse order though as David's exhibition runs until the 14th of December and we're hoping that seeing the talk will convince more

End frame: Vesturhorn by Esen Tunar

It still has that uplifting vibe that I felt the first time that I saw it, and I still feel like I’m stood in the very spot that he was just taking in the wondrous view before me, probably just like he did. more

Passing Through – Colin Jarvis

One of our readers, Colin Jarvis, popped in to say hello last month on the way back from running a workshop in Skye. more

Art and Flow in Photography

There is no doubt in my mind that practising photography with the attitudes and conditions conducive to flow—making it deliberately difficult, challenging, stretching one’s abilities and imagination, requiring prolonged focused engagement and consuming as much attention as one can muster—can make photography as rewarding to an artist as any other pursuit practiced with the same mindset. more

Simon Butterworth

Simon has given us a delightfully concise bio, so I’ll add a little. His images have been widely published; he has had success in high profile competitions including the Sony World Photography Awards, the International Photography Awards and the UK’s Landscape Photographer of the Year Competition more

I never expected that

It is this process of going back to Yew Tree Tarn many times and allowing myself to see the same trees, the same grasslands and experience the transition of the seasons, that firmly placed seeds in my mind that gradually germinated and flourished into latent photographs. more

Passing Through – Margaret Soraya

In this podcast, Margaret talks about her exhibition and what she finds in the quietness and solitude of the islands that keeps pulling her back. more

Carrara

The quarries have left a profound impression on me. They undoubtedly reinforce many questions on a wide range of issues including beauty, greed, consumerism, society, environment and personal responsibility. more

Landscape and the Picturesque

It’s interesting to analyse the mood that pictures create, the feelings they inspire, and to link that back to the decisions the photographer must have made at the moment of making the image. more
