Welcome to the latest issue of Digital Photographer magazine. Capturing colour sounds like a straightforward enough photographic concept, but there’s a reason why black and white was prevalent for so long. Achieving accurate colour, or colour with plenty of impact, is easier said than done, and is influenced by many other processes along the way. In this issue, we’ve got an in-depth guide to working with colour, which is sure to help you to improve your results and capture your best photos to date. Turn to p34 to begin reading it. Elsewhere this issue, we’ve taken a look at the ins and outs of posing skills for portraits. The feature covers all you need to know about how to create superb images of people in-camera, whether you’re working with female or male…

Achintha Dahanayake DP Gallery address: achinthad Image title: Soft and Wild What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? I used a Canon EOS 60D and 18-135mm lens. I used exposure blending, so had different settings for the sky and water (foreground). For the sky I used 1.6sec, f18, ISO 100 and for the foreground 25sec, f18, ISO 100. How did you decide on the composition? When I first saw this place, I was overwhelmed because there were so many beautiful subjects to capture and beautiful compositions to select. ‘Less is more’ is a fair statement because I spent hours thinking about which composition would be perfect. There was a high tide that day so I climbed onto this small rock and I was amazed by the view from there. What do…

story behind the still

Photographer: Fabio Antenore Website: fabioantenore.ch Location: Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland Type of commission: Commercial Shot details: Nikon D850 with Sigma Art 14mm f1.8 lens, 1/8s-8min at ISO 320-640 About the shot: There are certain locations at which it seems it would be impossible to shoot a bad image. However, as incredible as these places are, it requires the photographer’s creativity to produce unique images, with lasting impact. Here Fabio Antenore wanted to take a more creative shot of a well-photographed location. “I took the image in Iceland in the Vatnajökull glacier. My goal was to take a shot in a glacier cave that didn’t look the same as the normal ones [taken by other photographers],” says Fabio. By incorporating the figure in the shot, the frame is given a sense of scale, while creating a contrast of…

fujifilm announces professional x-h1 camera

After months of speculation, Fujifilm has confirmed the imminent arrival of a new pro-oriented X-H1 camera. The new model is positioned above the current co-flagship X-Pro2 and X-T2 models, and combines a handful of familiar technologies with some new additions. It inherits the same combination of an APS-C-sized 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro engine from the X-T2, together with an updated version of its 4K video recording option, a feature that has been included in a handful of its recent cameras. One notable inclusion is five-axis sensor-based image stabilisation, something that has not been designed into previous X-series models. This is said to have a maximum compensatory effect of 5.5EV stops and is effective for both stills and video. It also mirrors the systems on many models in…
