a week in photography

Even a couple of hours of serious, focused (pardon the pun) photography can be physically and mentally challenging, but what about spending the best part of 24 hours on a city shoot? That’s exactly the arduous task that Dave Fieldhouse set himself, and you can see the fruits of his labour on page 16. Not everyone needs to go to such extremes, but if Dave’s example inspires you to push yourself just that little bit harder, we’d love to see the results. Another big highlight of this issue is a first look at two brand-new Canon cameras: the EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless and EOS 90D DSLR. Both are based around 32.5MP APS-C sensors, and have a fight on their hands in a competitive market. If you’re looking for a…

meadow by jo stephen

THIS impressive multiple exposure image was uploaded to AP's Instagram page using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Jo Stephen. She tells us: ‘I took this image lying in long meadow grasses while watching butterflies at the ancient hillfort at Badbury rings, near Kingston Lacy estate in Dorset. I wanted to capture the ephemeral beauty of the orchids and gentle nodding grasses, and used a multiple-exposure technique to add depth and softness to the image.

big picture

LIZZY Petereit from Bremen in Germany has taken first place in the Macro Art category at the International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) with her image ‘Panta Rhei'. Inspired by the movement in nature she says, ‘Everything flows, the wonderful anemone flowers from my garden are apparently in motion – they constantly change their shape and structure.' Lizzy shot the image using her Sony A65 and Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Macro lens, and to achieve the swirling effect she altered the background at the post-production stage. IGPOTY runs all year. Anyone can enter from amateur to professional photographers. The main competition closes on 31 October. For more information, visit igpoty.com.…
