a week in photography

We all know that trees play a vital role in making our planet habitable, by removing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Which is great, of course, but their most important role is to act as compositional elements for landscape photographers, providing a frame for a distant view, or a focal point on one of the thirds. In winter their bare branches form twisted shapes that make great silhouettes. Neil Burnell’s gothic woodland landscapes look like scenes from a Tim Burton movie, and he shows us how he created them. Wildlife Photographer of the Year is surely the world’s most beautiful and moving photo competition. I urge you to go and see it in its natural habitat (the Natural History Museum), but in the meantime enjoy our pick of…

this week in 1947

TREASURES FROM THE HULTON ARCHIVE Royal Wedding by Bert Hardy 20 NOVEMBER 1947: As a nation, we have long been gripped by royal nuptials. The 1947 wedding of the then Princess Elizabeth to Lt Philip Mountbatten took place 72 years ago this week. On the morning of the wedding, Philip had been made the Duke of Edinburgh. In this photograph, page boys can be seen holding Princess Elizabeth's veil as she walks down the aisle at Westminster Abbey with her father, King George VI. For the wedding dress, Elizabeth famously required ration coupons to buy the material for her gown, which was designed by Norman Hartnell. It was made from duchesse satin, and you can see the motifs of star lilies and orange blossoms that adorned the veil in this photo, captured…

big picture

RNLI gets involved with the tetris challenge INSPIRED by the many tetris challenge images that have gone viral online, this week's ‘Big Picture' depicts RNLI Lifeboat crew posing like action figures alongside their laid-out equipment. Newhaven's Lifeboat Coxswain, Lewis Arnold, liaised with professional photographer and CAA approved remote pilot Alex Franklin in order to bring his idea to life. The shoot wasn't without its challenges, but with a break in the weather, Alex launched his DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone to capture this fascinating overhead image that's unlikely to be repeated with such finesse using the largest lifeboat in the RNLI's fleet.

leica sl2 sports stabilised 47.3mp sensor

LEICA was the second company after Sony to make a full-frame mirrorless camera, in the shape of the 24MP SL (Typ 601) in 2015, and now it has followed up with the updated SL2. The new model sports a 47.3MP sensor that's presumably similar to the one used in the Q2 fixed-lens compact earlier this year, and which now benefits from 5-axis in-body stabilisation. Other improvements include a higher-resolution 5.76m-dot electronic viewfinder, and a simplified rear control layout that drops the SL's hot keys in favour of a more intuitive approach similar to the APS-C Leica CL. Aside from that, the SL2 follows much the same template as its predecessor, with a chunky metal SLR-shaped body and fixed rear touchscreen. External controls are reduced to the essentials, with twin electronic dials,…

two premium panasonic full-frame zooms

PANASONIC has announced a pair of high-end zooms for its full-frame mirrorless Lumix S system. The Lumix S Pro 16-35mm f/4 (S-R1635) wideangle and Lumix S Pro 70-200mm f/2.8 OIS (S-E70200) telephoto will join the firm's existing 24-70mm f/2.8, 24-105mm f/4 macro, 50mm f/1.4 and 70-200mm f/4 optics in its L-mount line-up, as it works on building up the basic lens range required by serious users. Looking first at the 16-35mm f/4, this wide zoom features a 12-element, 9-group design, including three aspherical elements and one each constructed from extra-low dispersion (ED) and ultra-high refractive index (UHR) glass. It sports a 77mm filter thread, 25cm minimum focus distance and a 9-bladed diaphragm. At 85mm in diameter and 100mm in length, and weighing in at 500g, it's rather smaller and lighter than…
