WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER 2018 issue of Digital SLR Photography. While the semi-final of the World Cup didn’t go quite the way we had hoped, it’s still been a great summer for us folks in the British Isles. The UK has been enjoying one of the longest heatwaves in living memory, which has given us the opportunity to really enjoy the great outdoors this summer. Hopefully, it hasn’t all been sunbathing and barbecues for you – although I have to admit I’ve enjoyed a little of both over the last few weeks. The good weather has made it an ideal time for taking great photos outdoors. While I have to confess I haven’t been able to venture too far from home, I have taken advantage of the hot weather by…

Into the Wild by Ilhan Eroglu ilhanerogluphotography.com “I picked Lago di Carezza in the Dolomites, in Italy, for a sunrise photoshoot. When I saw the rock between two trees, I felt it would give the image great depth. I decided to climb up the rock and set up my tripod and timer. I tried to situate myself in the perfect place to capture the reflection and to make it more attractive. Framing the scene between the trees gives the image a corridor-like feeling.” Sony A7R III with FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens. Exposure: 1/40 at f/4 (ISO 320). First Light by Ilhan Eroglu ilhanerogluphotography.com “This was taken in the beautiful Dolomites mountain range in north-east Italy.

add foreground interest with motion

Camera: nikOn d800 / Lens: af-s 24-70mm f/2.8g NOT EVEry LANDSCApE needs foreground interest, but used in the right way it’s a great method of adding depth and interest to scenics. If your foreground isn’t quite interesting enough, or you’ve not been blessed with great light during your visit, all’s not lost – adding motion to foreground interest is a simple and effective method of introducing dynamism to landscapes. Foreground motion is surprisingly easy to find – flowers, foliage and crops are the perfect candidates, as is moving water, as we’ve covered in recent issues. All you need with the former three is a breeze, or you can even create your own by wafting a fold-out reflector at your immediate foreground. Finding the right amount of motion to complement the scene is…
