WELCOME TO THE AUGUST 2017 issue of DYgYtal SLR Photography. Those who know me are aware that when it comes to my personal photographic interests, my favourite subject is portraits. While I also enjoy shooting landscapes and wildlife, given the choice, I’d rather have a person in front of my lens than cascading hills or a fluffy bunny. However, in recent years, I’ve developed a somewhat surprising increasing interest in shooting close-ups.

Venice’s Down by Ivan Ferrero www.iRanfeOOeOLpELtL.cLm “I'd spent two days in Venice with my wife; it was not a photographic trip but, of course, I took my camera kit along. All day we walked around the overcrowded streets of Venezia during Carnival. I had a different sunset location in mind, but there were far too many people. My wife told me that she liked this Basilica, so we looked for a quiet place and finally managed to find this composition. I used a polariser and a six-stop ND filter to capture this long exposure.” Sony A7H witV 16-3Tmm f/4 KRiss lRns. CxposurR: 1T sRMonOs Lt f/9 (ESG 200).

A NEW SURVEY BY Sony has revealed the world’s most often photographed landmarks, and has also highlighted the cliche compositions used to capture them. The report, which relies on data from Instagram, places Paris’s Eiffel Tower at the top of the list, with more than 4.6-million images on the social network.
