these drop-in filters sit in mirrorless lens mounts

Aurora Aperture is crowdfunding the development of a new range of Adapter Mount Format filters for mirrorless cameras. The filters affix inside the lens mount adapters that serve as a bridge between DSLR lenses and mirrorless cameras. The AMF filter sits entirely inside a mount adapter, and they’re particularly useful for ultra-wide lenses, which tend to have bulky front elements and therefore either require special filter adapters or just aren’t compatible with filters at all. These filters are also much smaller than front-mounted versions, helping slim down the kit bag, and according to the makers they’ll be entirely free from vignetting – a problem that can plague some filters, especially cheaper ones. Currently supported are the following mount adapters: Canon EF-EOS R, Nikon FTZ mount adapter, Sigma’s MC-11 mount adapter for Sony…

shoot summer landscapes

With summer upon us, most normal people are getting excited and looking forward to long, warm evenings in the sun, sitting in the garden with a glass of wine, eating ice cream and spending weekends at the beach with the family. Landscape photographers, however, are different. They seem to have reached a consensus of opinion that the summer months are a waste of time, when there are few opportunities to get your camera out and create decent photographs in the harsh summer sunlight. As a result, instead of relaxing and enjoying the summer months like the rest of the population, they can get a little grumpy as they go into a kind of reverse hibernation, hiding away for the summer and not resurfacing until the autumn, which brings with it…

deal with harsh light

The reason most photographers don’t like summer is because the quality of light is generally less photogenic than during other seasons. The sun rises quickly and gets high in the sky, meaning harsh shadows and little textural relief, and there’s also more atmospheric haze, which can result in the landscape appearing flat and washed out. The length of the days makes things tricky, too. In the north of the UK for example, the summer sunrise is around 4.30am (earlier in the extreme north of Scotland) and sunset after 10.00pm, so let’s face it – getting on location in time to set up for sunrise is a real effort, and staying out for sunset will get in the way of family life. While it’s definitely worth making the effort to capture those…

understand summer weather

It’s King George II who’s I widely attributed with having characterised the British summer as “three fine days and a thunderstorm”, and nearly 300 years after he uttered the words there remains an element of truth in them. Although in the UK we tend to romanticise the summer as being full of long, warm days spent on the beach or in the countryside, the reality is that the weather is often quite changeable: neither weeks of blazing sunshine nor unending rain, but often a few mini-heatwaves followed by thunderstorms. This unpredictability is actually great news for photographers, as it can provide excellent opportunities if you get your timing right. Cloudy days can help to diffuse the harsh sun and create interesting lighting effects even in the middle of the day. Sunlight poking…

Wild flowers From late spring until mid-summer, woodlands, fields and meadows come alive with wild flowers. Bluebells flower in woods during May, as does thrift on coastal cliff tops. In June and July, fields of red poppies stretch into the distance, and in recent years, pale pink opium poppies have also been grown for pharmaceutical use; the difficulty with wild poppies is that there’s no way to know where they’ll flower, as seeds can lie dormant for many years – the only way to find them is to get out and about and spend time looking for them. In mid to late August, heather blooms, covering hillsides with carpets of purple. To shoot wild flowers, you can get in close with a wide-angle lens to exaggerate perspective, or use the compression effect…
