a week in photography

Christmas is nearly upon us. With the growing focus on the environment and on reducing waste, this seems a perfect time to get off the annual treadmill of spending money we don’t have on pointless presents for people we rarely see that they don’t want anyway, and that will either end up in the bin, or being re-wrapped and given to someone else next year. (Come on, we’ve all done it!) This year more of my gifts will be photo based. As a result they will be more personal and thus, I hope, more appreciated. Local retailers like Jessops and a plethora of websites offer a wide variety of creative ways to use your photos. This week we present a selection of them. Perhaps the best gift of all for…

this week in 1939

Blackout by Walter Bellamy THIS picture, taken on Oxford Street in London during the blackout of December 1939, is quite an extraordinary thing to behold. Of course we're used to seeing light trails as a common photographic subject now, but this image gives you further clues as to what it must have been like to live and work in London during the Second World War. While the stronger, uniform light trails are not too far off what you'd achieve today, the wiggly lines show the passage of pedestrians on the pavement, holding torches. Then again, with the proliferation of bright-screened smartphones, perhaps this could be easily reproduced after all. The Getty Images Hulton Archive is one of the world’s great cultural resources. Tracing its origins to the founding of the London Stereoscopic…

Top rock photographer dies Michael Putland, an influential music photographer who took many memorable images of Bowie, the Stones, Led Zeppelin and other giants, has died aged 72. ‘He was one of the true gentlemen in the often cut-and-thrust world of music photography,’ said Getty Images VP Matthew Butson. ‘Michael’s recent book, The Music I Saw, is a fitting testament to his craft over six decades.’ Nik Collection offers new film emulations Although the Nik Collection is no longer free, the software does get regular updates.

THIS fantastic image taken by Coltrane Koh has been named as the overall Fujiholics of the Year winner for 2019. The winners were announced in October at HipFest in Hull, and Koh saw off stiff competition from a host of other excellent shortlisted and highly commended photographs. Koh was awarded a Fujifilm X-T3 camera, plus XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS lens, along with a Manfrotto BeFree Carbon Tripod and had his image printed and framed by Digitalab. Koh says: ‘The image was taken during a private Napoleonic event in the Royal Casino in Bagni Di Lucca, Italy, where the models were the paying guests… I gave them the opportunity to act out their own actions and expressions.'

olympus brings pen e-pl10 to the uk

HAVING announced its latest entry-level Micro Four Thirds mirrorless model in Japan in mid-October, Olympus has now decided to bring it to European markets, including the UK. The PEN E-PL10 is a flat-bodied, viewfinderless camera that, aside from its name badge, appears externally identical to its predecessor, the E-PL9. Close examination of its specifications reveals that very little has changed inside, either. This means that the E-PL10 is based around a 16.1MP Four Thirds sensor, coupled with the firm's TruePic VIII processor. Key features include in-body image stabilisation that works with any lens and promises up to 3.5 stops compensation for hand shake, along with continuous shooting at up to 8.6 frames per second. The LCD touchscreen can tilt both upwards for waist-level shooting, and down to face forwards beneath the…
