“the fundamentals remain the same and the things we all love about photography endure”

Wow – Digital Photographer has reached its 200th issue! I started on the magazine while issue 121 was in progress, and I can distinctly recall wondering what the photography industry, and of course the magazine itself, might look like when issue 200 rolled around. Back then that milestone seemed a long way off, but time passes quickly and, to be honest, things aren’t all that different, in many respects. Cameras have naturally improved, with greater dynamic range and more megapixels, and more photographers are now stepping beyond stills and exploring video. But the fundamentals remain the same and the things that we all love about photography endure, no matter what technological innovations appear on the scene. Photography itself is timeless. With this in mind, we’ve put together a set of tips exploring…

Roydon Woodford DP Gallery address: RoydonsPhotography Image title: Banjo Swanage What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? Nikon D610, 28-300mm at 100mm f6.3 and 1/100sec exposure, ISO 100. How did you decide on the composition? The composition is one that I know works, as I have used it before during different seasons, with sunrises, some night-time shots and even waves breaking over [the pier]. What do you like most about the image? Liking this image is easy for me, because of its simplicity and lines on a backdrop of colour, as well as the fact that it captures one of our local landmarks very well. It reminds me of what a great place we live in. Did you do much post-processing? Not being an expert in post-processing, it was the usual sort of processing…

the best of photocrowd

The many competitions that we’ve run online in association with Photocrowd have covered a wide range of different genres, and we’ve received an overwhelming response time and time again, with a huge amount of entries for each and every one of the topics. Not only that, but the quality of the work submitted has been even more overwhelming. This has of course meant that choosing the winners each time has been extremely difficult, as the standard of the entries has been absolutely superb. In this issue, we’ve distilled what we consider to be some of the highlights from among the contests over the past year, which will hopefully inspire you to enter our future contests in association with Photocrowd.
