a week in photography

On the face of it landscape photography seems easy. We live in a country blessed with a great variety of scenic beauty. All we need to do is head to somewhere pretty, point our cameras and click. Of course we all know that there is much more to it than merely capturing a factual record of the topography. There is a vast gulf between simple snaps and the work of the great landscape photographers. So how do we get our own work to a point where it stirs the emotions and touches the soul in the way that great landscape photography does? There is no secret formula, but this week’s issue is dedicated to the various ways in which we can move our own landscape photography further away from the…

big picture

MUSTAFA HASSONA'S series ‘Palestinian Right of Return Protests' stops you in your tracks, and is a brutal documentation of the fighting in the Gaza Strip. This image won third place in the Professional Documentary category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2019, and captures a moment when Palestinian reporter Mariam Abu Dakka Abu Farhana learns of the death of her brother, Mohammed Abu Farhana. The lighting is incredibly intense and completely isolates the two women in their emotional hold. An image like this shows people's suffering because of years of political fighting, yet there's a feeling of self-consciousness for invading such a private, painful moment. See more winning images at www.worldphoto.org. © MUSTAFA HASSONA, PALESTINE, STATE OF, 3RD PLACE, PROFESSIONAL, DOCUMENTARY (PROFESSIONAL), 2019 SONY WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS…

fast 35mm tamron sp anniversary lens

TAMRON has released full details of the SP 35mm F/1.4 Di USD prime lens for Canon and Nikon full-frame DSLRs, which was first announced at the CP+ camera show in Japan in February this year. This rain- and moisture-resistant lens features 14 elements in 10 groups, including four LD (Low Dispersion) and three GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) elements. Tamron claims that this minimises chromatic aberration, while delivering superior optical performance towards the edges of the frame when shooting wide open at f/1.4. It has a nine-bladed circular aperture, and employs a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) for fast and quiet autofocus. Another feature, called the Dynamic Rolling-cam mechanism, has been specifically designed for this lens. It reportedly minimises the drive load placed on the focus lens. The lens also has a Full-Time Manual…
