Welcome to the latest issue of Digital Photographer magazine. The desire to capture images of our family and friends is why many of us take up photography, but simply taking a regular portrait can result in something that looks like little more than a snapshot, representing the person literally but not artistically. In our feature starting on p34 of the magazine, we take a look at how to capture and create atmospheric portraits, covering the shooting and editing techniques that you need to master in order to get the very best results. Elsewhere this issue, you’ll find a guide to getting more from a scene, exploring the various ways to maximise the potential of a particular location. Turn to p48 to begin reading it. We’ve also got a guide to documentary photography, focusing on…

Eithné O’Hanlon DP Gallery address: nianluain Image title: Ros Ean What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? I have a very limited kit of an old Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens. I’m also a bit lazy sometimes and often use Av mode and f2.8. On this day we had a strong breeze so I upped the ISO to 2000 to get a fast shutter speed. How did you decide on the composition? The flowers are in my garden so I just put Abby in front of the hedge. It’s quite a vicious rose –she likes to hook onto you. The clusters were [already] in that position, I just helped a bit during post-production. What do you like most about the image? Abby is just awesome –…

We really love the colours and patterns that are featured on the models’ bodies and particularly like the symmetry captured. This is a very well thought-out and executed image. Congratulations! 2 PLACE Izabella-Rae Photographer: Michelle Chance Our comment: This image is far more subtle than the first-place winner, but still colourful nonetheless. The background has been beautifully lit and the model’s headscarf helps to pull…

story behind the still

Photographer: Dag Ole Nordhaug Website: Location: Romsdalen, Norway Type of commission: Personal Shot details: Hasselblad H6D-100c with HCD 28mm; 0.3 secs at f11, ISO 200 About the shot: Water plays an important role in landscape photography, helping to add some movement and life to an otherwise static scene. Foreground interest is also a vital element in creating a balanced composition with shape and depth. Dag Ole Nordhaug combined both for his image captured in Romsdalen, Norway and his approach proves that a scene’s beauty is nothing without a photographer’s skill for framing. “The mighty peaks and waterfalls of Romsdalen have intrigued me for years,” says Dag. “[However] this particular area usually lacks foreground interest. I have always found it difficult to balance the impressive peaks with a good foreground, which is actually quite steep and…
