a week in photography

Digital photographs only exist when electricity is applied to them. Turn off the power and they disappear back into the recesses of our hard drives, SD cards and phones. To make them permanent and tangible we need to print them. Most of us don’t do enough of this. One of the most cited reasons is the perceived complexity of printing, and to be fair, there’s quite a lot you need to know. So this week we present an expert guide to help you get better digital prints – and another one on traditional analogue printing. Why not make it a New Year’s Resolution to rescue your photos from hard-drive obscurity? Print them, mount them on the wall, send them to friends; maybe even exhibit them. If you don’t want to print…

THIS picture was uploaded to our Twitter page using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Andrea Heribanova. She tells us, ‘I visited Zermatt previously in summer and had a shot in my mind to take of the village with the whole of the famous Matterhorn peak in the background. That didn't happen the first time, so I visited again. I spent quite a few hours of my two-day visit standing at this raised viewpoint looking at the village, but it was just too foggy. The sun was trying to come out so it gave me some light. I snapped a few images as the clouds covering the top of the mountain gave it a nice atmosphere. Also the snow made the scenery look more beautiful and wintry.' © ANDREA…

more details of full-frame lumix s range

FOLLOWING the development announcement at last year's Photokina, Panasonic has revealed some key features of its new Lumix S1 and S1R full-frame mirrorless cameras at the CES consumer electronics show in Las Vegas.

The resultant images are saved as an HSP file which can be viewed on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4KTV via HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices. There's also High Resolution Mode, which takes advantage of in-body stabilisation to enable eight consecutive images to be shot while shifting the sensor; the eight shots are processed into one image. ‘This mode is ideal for taking natural landscapes or fine-art objects,' says Panasonic, adding that this…
