a week in photography

On the face of it landscape photography seems easy. We live in a country blessed with a great variety of scenic beauty. All we need to do is head to somewhere pretty, point our cameras and click. Of course we all know that there is much more to it than merely capturing a factual record of the topography. There is a vast gulf between simple snaps and the work of the great landscape photographers. So how do we get our own work to a point where it stirs the emotions and touches the soul in the way that great landscape photography does? There is no secret formula, but this week’s issue is dedicated to the various ways in which we can move our own landscape photography further away from the…

shadows by paul crudgington

THIS street scene was uploaded to our Twitter page using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Paul Crudgington. He tells us, ‘I recently purchased my first vintage M42 film lens, and having tried it for macro photography I was eager to see how it performed for street. The area around Manchester Town Hall is a great spot, because in the late afternoon the sun creates interesting, high-contrast scenes. Having found the right composition, it was a matter of patience until the right person walked by to complete the scene. I darkened the shadows and brightened the highlights to produce the final result.' © PAUL CRUDGINGTON IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES ONLINE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA…

big picture

MUSTAFA HASSONA'S series ‘Palestinian Right of Return Protests' stops you in your tracks, and is a brutal documentation of the fighting in the Gaza Strip. This image won third place in the Professional Documentary category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2019, and captures a moment when Palestinian reporter Mariam Abu Dakka Abu Farhana learns of the death of her brother, Mohammed Abu Farhana. The lighting is incredibly intense and completely isolates the two women in their emotional hold. An image like this shows people's suffering because of years of political fighting, yet there's a feeling of self-consciousness for invading such a private, painful moment.
