FIRST PLACE “ANDY” BY RYAN DEVEREUX “This image was part of a series of images that I did recently based on modern masculinity,” explains Ryan Devereux. “The model in this image is my good friend and talented musician, Andy Kirwan. This is one in a series of four images that attempt to open a dialogue about modern masculinity and how we represent ourselves as men. I asked each of my subjects to think about how they wanted to be represented visually, and then it was my job to make that idea happen. “It was a difficult image to achieve, as I didn’t have any studio lighting to use—basically, the lighting setup was two household lamps! The photo was taken in my living room at the time, with the help of my house-mates who moved…

new cameras for 2015

CANON EOS 5DS & 5DS R Canon has returned to the top of the DSLR megapixel mountain with a pair of 50.6-megapixel full-frame EOS 5D models. The new EOS 5DS and 5DS R are identical except the R model’s low-pass filter effect has been cancelled to further increase sharpness (at the risk of moiré in images of fine repeating patterns). There are also 1.3X (APS-H) and 1.6X (APS-C) crop modes—30.5 and 19.6 megapixels, respectively—which are handy when you don’t need huge 50-megapixel files. Dual DIGIC 6 processors provide the power to handle such large files at speeds of up to 5 fps. Normal ISO range is 100-6400, expandable to 50-12800. Estimated Street Price: $3,699 (5DS); $3,899 (5DS R). CANON EOS REBEL T6i The EOS Rebel T6s’s “kid brother,” the Rebel T6i features the…

look to the sky

No matter where I go, no matter what I do, I find myself shooting skyscapes again and again. My location makes no matter. The sky, to me, never looks the same way twice; vast, expansive, clear, cloudy, blue, pink or even ombré (my favorite), the sky can be a source of continual photo inspiration. Although it may not seem like the most obvious or even logical way to capture a visual story of place, using the sky as a backdrop to accentuate other visual cues that indicate your location can be creatively challenging—in the best way. Shooting the sky alone certainly can be enough, but to tell a more compelling story of where you are, include other elements in your frame that are accentuated with the sky as a backdrop. When close…

pro landscape secrets

Ever since Ansel Adams, photographs of the natural landscape have inspired people and fired the imagination. Great landscape photos, however, don’t just happen by pointing your camera at pretty scenery. Instead, landscape pros use a number of techniques to make captivating images, bringing their subjects to life with composition, color and light. I’ve been shooting landscapes and nature professionally for over 10 years, sometimes traveling to the far ends of the Earth to find compelling subjects. What follows are a few of my favorite “pro tricks” for making great landscape photos. ZOOM IN FOR LANDSCAPE INTIMATES Landscape photography isn’t solely the province of wide-angle lenses. Use a short telephoto zoom to pluck out a portion of the overall scene, focusing attention on patterns in the landscape and the details of nature. Look for…
