From the Editor

1be single image

Even given that we might assume a picture is worth

a thousand words, it is often hard to express all that one wishes to

say on any particular matter within the confines of a solo image. A thousand words is hardly enough to communicate a fraction of the information that might assist a stranger in understanding what there is to know about a single house, such as its architecture, its decor, its layout, its history, who lives there, but we constantly attempt to tell a whole story without providing what is needed.

The differences between amateur and professional photographers are fewer than most imagine, but I have found

one constant that separates the two groups: amateurs tend to work almost exclusively in single images. When we collect even our holiday photos together for the album, they are only a collection by coincidence rather than by design. We don't shoot in series, making a conscious link between one image

and the next to build a sum larger than its parts and with a definite story line. We don't have to, of course, because

we shoot for fun, but I wonder if we'd get more pleasure out of our hobby if our images achieved more. The single image, hung and displayed, is still a powerful tool, but so often it does

no more than scratch a surface.

High-end Coolpix compact on the cards I Canon Gll is benchmark

Nikon prepares for PowelShot 611 battle

CANON can expect its PowerShot

G11 to have some competition in the near future, according to Nikon UK's senior product manager Kevin Egan.

Speaking to Amateur Photographer's Angela Nicholson, Egan revealed that Nikon had planned to unveil

a competitor to the G 11 in its recent refresh of the Cool pix range, but that the camera is not quite ready yet

Egan went on to say

that the G 11 is now the benchmark by which other compact digital cameras are measured, and he anticipates that Nikon will soon have a Similarly specified model that delivers high-quality images.

He was unable to expand upon the feature set that the yet-to-be announced Coolpix model is likely to have, but anticipates that it will combine

some of the technology of Nikon's DSLRs with the build quality of a high-end Cool pix compact camera.

Nikon's recent launch of seven new compact cameras (see page 7) did not include a replacement for the nowdiscontinued Cool pix P6000, which was the company's most highly specified compact camera.

Nikon maintains that a pixel count of 12 million is enough for its DSLR range (with the exception of the D3X), as it allows the APS-C and full-frame cameras to produce cleaner, higherquality images.

However, this is at odds with the company's policy for its SlUb-APS-C -sensor Coolpix range of compact cameras. The discontinued Coolpix P6000, for instance, has 14.2 million photoreceptors on its l/l.7in CCO sensor, and the

The 14.1-million-pixel (anon IXUS 130 measures just 17.Smm at its thickest point

'Slimmest' ever IXUS arrives

CANON has revealed its 'slimmest' ever IXUS in the shape of the IXUS 130.

Priced £279, the IX US 130 is a 14.1-million-pixel model measurrng 17.8mm at its thickest point, says Canon.

Features include a 2.7in LCD screen and HD movies, (at 720-pixel resolution).

subscribe 0845 676 7778

Creative effects include low light, fisheye and miniature.

Canon has also unveiled the 12.1MP IXUS lOS

(£ 189), which, like the IXUS 130, sports a 4x optical zoom with a wideangle focal length of 28mm.

Both cameras are due in shops this month.

new Coolpix S8000 has a pixel count of 14.2 million and an even smaller 1/2.3in sensor

Although the P6000 can record raw files, AP's test (lS November 2008) revealed that the over-populated sensor limits the image quality at higher sensitivity settings.

Canon's decision to give the PowerS hot G 11 a lower pixel

count (ten million) than its predecessor, the 14.7-millionpixel G 1 0, was a surprise

to many, but it allowed the newer camera to produce much better-quality Images

at high-sensitivity settings.

Perhaps Nikon will

follow SUit with its P6000 replacement but, as yet, there is no launch date set

Five new lenses for Samsung NX

SAMSUNG has expanded the lens range of Its NX camera system to eight with the introduction of five new optics.

Announced to coincide with opening of the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show in Anaheim, USA, the additional five lenses give a boost to the NX1 0 camera even before a fully working body has been released.

Although the new optics were not on display at

the press preview the day before the show opened,

a spokesman was able to confirm that the new lenses

would be a 20-50mm f/3.5- S.6, a 20mm f/28 pancake, a 60mm f/27 macro, an 18- 200mm f/3.5-6.3 OIS and an 18-S5mm f/3.5-S.6.

The company was unable to estimate pridng for any of the lenses, but was able to tell us that the non-OIS version of the existing 18-SSmm

lens would be available next month, while the 20-S0mm and 20mm pancake lenses will be on sale in the second half of the year.

The release date for the 60mm macro and 18- 200mm zoom lenses

has yet to be announced.

China sell-out

A gold-plated Leica, created to mark the 60th anniversary of Communist rule in China, has proved a hit. Leica made 61 units of the camera, which came with a SOmm f/1.4 gold-plated Summilux-M lens. 'This limited edition was available exclusively in China and is now sold out,' said a spokesman for Leica's GermanHO.

Pentax compact Pentax has debuted a new 10J-million-pixel digital compact cailed the Optio E90. Features on board the £79.99 model, which is powered

by AA batteries and due

out this month, include a 31.S-94.Smm zoom (3Smm viewing angle equivalent). It also sports a 2.7in LCD screen and digital filters such as Starburst and Sepia.


mobile update Adobe has updated iPhonecompatible Photoshop software to include video playback. Also new is the ability to alter sharpness

Jessops (hief optimistic

for trading future

IN last week's issue (AP 27 February), we reported on the plans of Jessops' CEO Trevor Moore to shake up the chain's stores and standards of customer service during 201 O. In this second part of our exclusive interview he tells us of hiS optimism for this year, despite the challenges the company faces.

The recession IS not over for Jessops, says Moore, who was recruited by chairman David Adams from Phones4u last August Along With other UK retailers, the company faces a difficult year. 'While technically the recession may be over, physically the impact and effects of it are still very much going to be out there.'

Although he does not expect to see the industry grow over the coming months, Moore is on a mission to develop 'market share'. 'I think the UK is in

for a really tough 2010, and

I think there will be more businesses in trouble in 2010 than 2009: he told us.

Post-Christmas lull

Jessops suffered a postChristmas lull in consumer spending, althougll January 'started well'. 'Then, of course, the weather hit and the VAT [increase] came in,

'Clearly we haven't been able to sustain the growth we have seen at Christmas. We are holding our own and fighting our ground.

'The media reported that this January was the toughest in retail for 15 years It's certainly not at Jessops, but

it was a much harder January than we thought it would be.'

However, Moore is

CEO Trevor optimistic year ahead

convinced that Jessops is 'well placed to ride out the year', OWing to a stronger balance sheet bolstered by a large chunk [B4m] of its debt having been written off by the bank,

Another cornerstone of Moore's grand plan is a major refurbishment programme, after similar makeovers fuelled growth

in a dozen revamped stores last year. According to the chairman, Jessops' 12-store refurbishment programme boosted sales at those shops by nearly 10%.

'We have arranged the funding of a significant number - significantly more [stores) than we've developed to date - to be rolled out over the course of 201 0 in three phases,' Moore revealed.

He said Jessops will announce the locations of these shops shortly

To help him deliver his business strategy, Moore

has expanded his regional management team from six to eight and hired a new retail director, Chris Yates, also from Phones4u.

~~ Moore is confident the new-look stores will help him adlieve his goal of breaking into profH this year~~

Breaking into profit

Moore is confident that the new-look stores will help him achieve his goal of breaking Into pro fit th is year

'It is in everybody's best interest: he said, 'It's in the best interest of the consumer because we bring choice

to the high street; to the supplier as a window on

their brand and an outlet

for their product; and to the competition because by being there we bring competition'

The master plan will include 'incentivisation' of store managers, and the addition of new products, although

he did not elaborate.

Moore explained that Jessops has built a close link with its existing 'core suppliers', who have supported it through 'challenging times'.

One element not missing from Jessops' 201 0 portfolio is the CEO's enthusiasm for the business - fired, it seems, by a self-declared tasonanon for the product

Moore, who was first

given an SLR aged 11, said

he hasn't been able to stop buying new gear since he took on his new role. Although his interest In photography was only reignited on the birth of his daughter two years ago,

he admitted: 'I am becoming

a real geek.'

LARGE-FORMAT photographers will have a wider choice of film stock from April as Kodak plans

to introduce Its Ektar 100 negative film in 5x4in and lOx8in-sized sheets. The film, whicll has been available in 135mm and 120 formats since the end of 2008,

is designed as a generalpurpose fine-grain emulsion with moderate contrast,

high colour-saturation

and high resolution.

The fact that Kodak is

releasing a negative emulsion for large-fomnat users, rather than a transparency product. is a reflection of the quality that is now achievable In negative films and the fact that negative films are easier to scan than more highcontrast, traditional slide films.

The news comes as Fujifilm is said to be phasing out some of Its large-format sheet films in the ready-load range

Pricing and pack sizes for Ektar 100 have still to be announced.

Your guide to the latest photography books, exhibitions and websites

Internationally acdaimed South Korean photographer Jungjin Lee does things very much her own way. Having taught herself photography in the 1980s, she then earned a Master of Arts degree from New York University and subsequenHy developed a distinct textural photographic process of brushing liquid emulsion onto the surface of handmade Korean mulberry paper. Combined, these textures and brush strokes give her photographs a distinct painterly touch, and they are part of the permanent collections of institutions like New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In Wind, Lee applies the same technique to a

10 I wwwamateurphotographer.co.uk I 6 March 2010

series of panoramas split between the South Korean wilderness and the desolate American southwest Gritty and stark in contrast, Lee's vast expanses are stalked by foreboding douds and buckled trees, often looking like someone has pressed pause on an old French film. Seemingly otherworldly, often just a small man-made object in the frame, such as a school bus, sewer grating or piano, brings her images back to some understandable reality. While tending towards the artier side of photography, Lee's clear vi~on and DIY ethos to achieve [ should be an inspiration to all. Jeff Meyer

There are many landscape photographers working today, so how do you make yourself stand out from the rest? One solution is to ensure you have a website that makes viewers want to come back again and again. Mike McFarlane's excellent effort is a good example of how to maximise your website's potential. Not overly complicated, nor filled too full with information, the layout is clear and easy to navigate.

On the homepage there are clearly presented links to Mike's gallery, workshops and articles, as

well as news and events and his online shop.

His gallery comprises the main body of the website. Divided into separate portfolios Including 'Recent work', and then chronologically, the images have technical captions and a quip or sentiment about the location or Image-making process, with each location helpfully shown on

a map. The personal tone of the website and non-fussy presentation make for an enjoyable browsing experience It also doesn't hurt that the landscapes ~"'rI11

about the nature of sodety today, but collectively they offer an IntrigUing insight into the customs and idiosyncrasies of a cross-section of English citizens. From quarrelsome punks to lazy beach goers, picnicking families and terminally ill patients, what's striking about these images is their ordinariness but underlying unique warmth and pOignancy. Taken over a 40-year period, the images encompass people from all walks of life, highlighting how innate human qualities can be found in the most mundane situations. Gemma Padley

In 1983 I was after a new SLR and intended (0 buy an Olympus OM-l 0, After handhng one I noticed the store was selling the OM-l n for Just £ 1 0 more. As soon as I held one I was smitten. Unlike the OM-1 0, whose chunky body harked back to earlier Olympus models, the OM-1 n looked and felt just what it was - sheer class' With Its gorgeous chrome and

black leather finish, it made myoid Praktica look like a house brick

Sadly, it met an horrendous fate when I placed it on my mate's car roof in order to get a filter from my camera bag. Whoosh!

In defence of Pentax

As a Pentax user I can fully understand Mike Gosling's pain over the Pentax lens price increases in 2009 (Letters, AP 20 February) There are a number of pomts to take issue with, however

First, the lenses that have increased in price the most (the DA Limited series) are high-quality products

that for a long time have offered excellent value for money However, Pentax IS a smaller company that

is presumably more susceptible to adverse exchange rates than the

big two of Canon and Nikon, both of which are better placed to withstand short-term losses, So a price rise was perhaps ineVitable. As for the budget lenses, those of perhaps most interest to 'newbies', such as the 18-55mm, 50-200mm and 55-300mm optics, are all still very keenly priced (and

decent quality too). Let's not also forget that third-party lenses for Pentax obviously cost no more than for the opposition, and can offer tremendous value, With Pentax, there is also the reverse compatibility issue, which allows the use of very good second-hand, manual-focus prime lenses from Pen tax's long 35mm SLR history.

Second, Mike says Pentax bodies are too expensive. A casual glance at the advertisements In the back of AP show that the excellent K-x and K-7 are significantly cheaper than their nearest competitors, such as

the Nikon D5000 and D300S.

Third, he says that Pentax DSLRs are 'not qUite good enough' Well,

the Pentax range may be small, but the current cameras have received excellent reviews if you look at a broad section of print and online sources.

Tile K-x is one of the hottest cameras on Amazon.com which is quite an achievement for a company such as Pentax, and proving that the brand

is still capable of providing DSLR newcomers with an attractive mix of value and quality.

While Pentax is probably never going to truly challenge the big two

in the DSLR market place (although

it looks set to shake up tile smaller digital medium-format market with the upcoming 6450), I hope that it continues to provide well-thought-out and well-constructed cameras that provide the amateur with a refreshing alternative to Canon or Nikon.

Military propaganda

Sergeant Daniel Harmer and

his colleagues of the Army Combat Camera Team (Point & shoot, AP

23 January) are part of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) public relations department, whose job it IS to dull the horrors of war. MOD photographers are not impartial in the same way as the civilian photojournalist The MOD photographer is bound by military strategy and rank. In other words,

a picture is not put out unless it is approved. You will not see coverage of the Afghanistan conflict with the same eyes and vivid realism that the late Larry Burrows of ule magazine

or Philip Jones Griffiths of Magnum portrayed the war in Vietnam. Instead, you have the placid representation

of conflict as seen in this article, a

A turning point

I was Interested to read Steve Bloom's Photo insight article in AP 16 January, for I too have a chimpanzee to thank for an important occasion in my photographic life. A few years ago I was at Chester Zoo, which is one of my favourite photographic venues, when one of the chimps laid back and put

his hand in front of his face to hide his eyes from the sun. I had been taking

a number of pictures during the day and at this time had only one frame

left to use So I had to be quick, and luckily I released the shutter at just the right moment The accompanying pkture is the result Luck? Maybe. But the importance of this particular occasion is that it led to my picture being used, by Judges, as a postcard. I received a few pounds for my picture,

but more important was the fact that

my work had been recognised as being of a standard that was to be seen by the general public. Don't ask my friends and relatives how many postcards they received from me that year!

sanitised portrayal of war paid for by the Brinsh public

In all my own dealings with the military over the years, from the French Foreign Legion to the Royal Marines and the Chinese Red

Army, I have always maintained my independence, never allOWing my material to be subjected to censorship before publication. It is vital that the public is made aware of the difference between skilfully placed military material, which for the most part is propaganda, and the unbiased and balanced photographs obtained by dvilian photographers.

Fun for its own sake

Regarding Roger Hicks' Rnal frame column In AP 13 February, I think

he is missing the pont. There are

two broad categories of amateur photographer: those who enjoy creating photographic images, and those who enJoy the technology for its own sake. I fall into the latter category, and I repair dysfunctional, almost valueless cameras simply because I can and I enjoy doing so.

I have owned almost every type

of camera that has ever existed, going back to the mid-1850s. I have never paid more than a few pounds for any of them because they were wrecked when I found them. If I cannot

get the part, I make it I still use different types from my colledion from time to time, including wet plate, dry plate, rollftlm, 35mm rsnqefmder and SLR. I'm not a very good

photographer, as my photographs would probably not even qualify for

a competition, let alone win one,

but for me that's not the point It's a hobby, something I enjoy because the mechanical engineering technology

is interesting in its own right. Some things are worth doing for their own sake, and not because it makes economic or practical sense to do so. Chris lord, lancashire

My hobby has developed into the enthusiastic and well-intentioned purchase of old junk I never find the time to use. In that way I never discover whether it works or not

A world of extremes

We have all seen In the news recently the obscene greed of bankers, politicians and certain industry bosses. Now the photographs of Benjamin Rusnak (Changing lives, AP 13 February) show the other side of the story. Unfortunately, these pictures of starving children will not be seen In the national press. I don't know if the term 'wonderful pidures' is correct for this subject, but they are certainly moving. They brought tears to my eyes an'f\'Iay. How can we live in a world of such extremes of 'have'

and 'have no!'?

AP reader Melvyn Dover reflects on the winter's perfect weather - for photographers

ITS been a good winter with plenty of snow, although each bout caused chaos. It wasn't good for drivers, but for photographers it's been fantastic!

Thousands of us have been out taking photographs, recording the 'eight inches of snow' in our locality. Many of these have been sent via email to family and friends, and the internet has recorded increased activity. I received six and sent three. Multiply that by the number of people sending and receiving and that's a lot of intemet traffic. It's not only landscapes indicating the depth of the snow, but cars covered in white stuff, frozen canals, children throwing snowballs, snowmen in gardens or just chocolate-box pictures of villages. And let's not forget those of youngsters and adults on toboggans, enjoying themselves as they hurtle downhill (and a few policemen doing the same). Such scenes were flying around the intemet in their thousands.

Snow became the perfect photographer's putty. Ice sculptures and snowmen of all forms were made and snapped for posterity. Websites, including national TV and news ones, couldn't get enough of them. One or two of the wittiest come to mind: pictures of a hitchhiking snowman by a roadside, and one of a snowman making a phone call, standing in the box with the receiver to his ear. Creativity went up as temperatures went down.

Quite a few people I spoke to on the phone in various parts of the country reported how picturesque it looked with the snow settled on tree branches against a blue sky.

Manufacturers have benefited from all this. GfK and Technology UK reported a rise of 8% in camera sales last December, boosted by people upgrading their current models to new ones, merely to take pictures of the snow. Sometimes users want better quality or a bargain in the sales, but suddenly DSLR models that include weather sealing make a lot of sense.

Daylight film emulsions (remember those?) used to have a colour balance of around 5,OOOK, which is ideal for recording a blue sky at noon on a summer's day - conditions under which we'd expect lots of pictures to be taken. Now digital cameras are being used by the mass market all year round as well as by enthusiasts - and all due to a bit of snow. Thank goodness batteries no longer pack up at the first sign of winter, as they used to do in my early cameras. Thank goodness for easily adjustable colour balance. With so much to capture and constantly improving photographic tools, no wonder there were so many cameras being used this winter. To paraphrase the words of a famous politician, we've never had it so good.

Photo Insight David Clapp



NOT long ago, while trying to push my photography into new areas, I started a mini landscape project. The idea was simply to take images in driving rain to prove a point to myself that imagery could be born of optimism It's so easy to look out of the window on a wet Sunday

in winter and decide to flick the kettle switch rather than contemplate a potential drenching in the name of

so-called art It's also natural to crave some meteorological favour when shooting landscape images, but rain means grey clouds. Some clouds, though, have silver linings.

I set off for another drive around Oartrnoor While looking for

inspiration to crash into the car, my gawping left another branch scrape

on the paintwork as I corrected my steering. These were the early days

of Oartrnoor shoots, when I naively thought I might just 'spot something' roadside. After 40 miles and still with nothing to show for it, I pulled over, wiped the condensation off the driver's side windOW and played with the wiper speeds. 'This is miserable', I thought to myself. 'Great project, David. There's nothing here to shoot. just dull brown and flat grey. Roll on May, when I can immerse myself in a riot of blues,

soft yellows and fresh green. All thiS drabness will be long forgotten'.

With a blank bracken canvas disrupted by just a few distant hawthorns, one tree in particular seemed to hold some form. I hauled on my wei lies and began kicking

my way up the hillside, thinking that bloody minded ness could perhaps pay dividends if optimism didn't surface. It wouldn't be the first time that a seemingly fruitless road could lead to redemption - well, that's what I often read In photography magazine narratives.

This hawthorn has real shape (see left) It's a bit like a cross between a bird's nest and an overdue haircut, but it certainly has character. With the dull grey starting to lift, I took out my Canon EOS 50, my new 17-40mm f/4L lens and sat on the damp grass, kitchen roll in hand, looking through the Viewfinder. The wider the focal length, the more interesting the sky became, so I worked the camera's height and position to try to make something stronger This looks

like a moody book cover, a tale of abandonment perhaps. I took two graduated filters out of the bag, a

0.9ND hard step and another soft step, and tried putting them together. The sky became considerably darker at the top, revealing hidden tones, but it is the vignetting in the upper corners [hat give this scene its fictional look. Walking back I could see it in my mind: quill and ink title, Georgian fonts, a success despite there being no light at all, but It would lean towards digital art for sure.

With my gear in the back of the Skoda, the deluge returned. A quarter of a mile later I pulled over again, thiS time with a rush of anticipation. There on the hillside was the church of Walkhampton, with strong beams of light moving rapidly towards me (see right) I grabbed my 70-200mm lens and sat waiting in the rear seat with the window down. With a lens hood attached I pushed the lens through the window gap, attempting to protect the front element from rain. However. the wind was blowing straight towards me so It splattered rain all over the glass. Sopping kitchen roll pulled

from my coat pocket did nothing but smear, so I got out of the car.

While leaning into the car, it suddenly dawned on me: I could use the boot as a windbreak. I set the tripod up and attached the camera, leaving the boot open. With the beam of sunlight moving across the village, the wet slate roofs began to refled the light. I thought: 'If this beam comes a little closer and lights the church, I will go to Communion, and confession too, I promise.' The ground grew brighter and brighter, and then the beam took a sharp right I shouted 'Nol' at the

sky, reviewed the screen and laughed. There on my LCD was God speaking soundly to his congregation. AP

High-key black & white portrait effect

System requirements Windows PC or Mac

IT can be difficult to get a completely white background In a small home studio. Often there is not enough room to position two lights on either side of a background, or the small space means that the light bounces around and ends up looking flat. This was the case with a portrait (above left) I shot recently.

With a low ceiling and no room to place a light behind the subject, the light from a ringflash produced flat lighting and a grey background. However, this

produced a suitable image from which to create a high-key portrait image.

Tradidonally, high-key portraits have few completely black areas, and much of the image is very light A good rule of thumb IS to make sure that the subject's pupil and eyelashes are black, and that the lightest part of the skin is as light as it can be before it goes completely white (a tonal value of 255)

Using a few of Adobe Photoshop's basic tools, I was able to achieve this effect and turn the background

completely white. I converted the Image to black & white with an orange filter effect created using the Channel Mixer, with the red and blue channels set to 50%. Using the blue and green channels too much makes the skin and hair look darker, while the red channel can make the skin look washed out I find the orange Filter effect to be a good compromise.

Once converted, it is a case of using the Levels and Curves controls to create the high-key effect

ensure there are blacks in the image. Select the shadow marker and hold down the Alt key while dragging it to the right. As you do this the areas that become black will be shown. Move the marker until the subject's pupils are black.

2 First convert the image to black & white by selecting Irnage>Adjustments>Channel Mixer and ticking the Monochrome box at the bottom of the panel. The Orange Filter Preset produces the best results, as it lightens hair and skin tones without making them as bright as the Red Filter option.

4TO create the high-key effect, the highlights and midtones need to be lifted. To do this, select the Curves tools (Image>Adjustments>(urves) and lift the line to create a steep curve. Be careful not to create patches of white on the subject's skin.

6 Most of the background should now be completely white, but to make sure that it is select the Dodge tool and change the strength to 8% and the range to highlights. Now use the tool and go over the background.

Landscapes Shooting At Dawn

Dawn's early light

We all know that we need to get our equipment charged and ready before a dawn shoot, but how can we make sure that we choose the right subject and location? Jason Theaker explains dawn's potential and provides a few simple steps to ensure maximum creativity

YOUR phone alarm jolts you from your slumber at S.30am and you struggle to drag your securely hibernated, slightly worse-for-wear body away from the warm holiday cottage bed. Your Immediate instinct is to Silence the din (uncoordinatedly fumbling with eyes still closed) before your partner wakes and banishes you to the spare room for the rest of the holiday.

The previous evening's criticisms - 'You're crazy getting up so early', 'You'd better not wake me' - will have evaporated, because you're secure in the knowledge that you

are fully prepared. Packed safely in your

car boot is sUitable equipment and clothing for the winter conditions, comprising warm waterproof clothing, fmqerless gloves, overtrousers, welhes, hat, torch, compass, whistle and mobile, and neatly waiting for you by the front door is your gear, all clean, charged up and ready for action.

AntiCipating that only half of your sleepy brain will be working the next moming, you will have also made plans to avoid tile classic 'forgot to reset' schoolboy error.

You will have remembered to reset the ISO back to 100, down from ISO 64,000 after the previous evening's 'family on holiday

in atmospheric pub' series of images. You will also have transferred and reviewed the Images to your laptop (despite your partner expecting some conversation), formatted the card, reinstated raw and reset the f-stop to f/11-f/14 in order to maintain optimum hyperfocal crispness, balanced against a slightly compromised depth of field.

If you don't do ths the night before, you're sure to forget when dnving to the pre-scouted location (already ten minutes late from that extra coffee), with your eyes scouring each side of tile road as you watch the subtle changes in colour in the western

20 I www.amateurphotographer.CO.uk I 6 March 2010

skyline. Finally, on arrival, you find yourself in the dark, struggling down slippery obstacles in tile pursuit of perfection; time (and possibly tide) will be against you

During a sunrise, the optimum conditions normally arrive a short time before dawn,

so to make the best of that fleeting window of maximum colour you need to be in

the perfect location at the exact time. EnVironmental and geographical planning using online aids such as maps, tide times, weatller forecasts and the Photographer's Ephemens (see page 23) will partly inform you of the mechanics of what you might face, but tile really complex and ultimately fascinating part of the process is the creative choices you make to realise your vision.

Creative (hoi(es

When shooting a popular photographic subject such as a sunrise, there is a slight danger of following the well-worn path of least resistance and slipping towards the dreaded cliche. To prevent this horror, it's important to visualise the type of image

you are seeking and tIllnk about how to set your attempt apart from the thousands of others. This is by far the most interesting, and biggest, challenge when planning your trip, as there is no 'correct' way of doing

this. Creativity is wonderfully complex, and by its very nature it doesn't fit into formulaic checklists so you're going to have to develop your own, based on your preferred style and vision. This is harder than it sounds and it may take years to formulate your own style

The first tiling you must do is expose yourself to as much photographic - and even non-photographic - 'culture' as possible (yes, even French avant-garde subtitled films are useful). Consuming as much culture as possible is useful as a means of developing deeper subtleties.

I consider my animation training influential

in my love of movement within tile static image, and I would also cite my willingness to experiment to my art-school background. Meanwhile, my wider consideration for

who IS looking at my images comes from working in the commercial animation industry. Experiences such as these become tile texture for your ideas and guide you (sometimes subconsciously) towards a

more meaningful and considered approach. You might, for instance, recall how the

light was used In a particular French film

and try to recreate it in nature. The more possible points of inspiration you

expose yourself to, the more you will /

think about your compositions

Landscapes Shooting At Dawn

t" Next comes what I call 'conceptual

I experimentation' This is vital to

creative development, and it's critically important to avoid restraining yourself in any way. Try to dispel the fear of failure and believe in your general conviction to make a great image, even if you're not sure of the outcome (and if you're doing it correctly you won't be)

Too often people have a blockage when

it comes to trying something new, and

they seem to want to Just copy others because they think it will work. This may

be satisfying in the short term, but it will

not produce anything really new. Effective experimentation by its very nature is an Insecure process in that it forces you to break new ground and move beyond

your comfort lone. Maybe you shy away from long exposures, but the shifting

tide is leaving long, white streaks across

the beach at dawn. Framed low, with

lots of foreground, the effect could be

quite intense, but you just don't know for sure. Remember that if you can extract something worth developing from this uncertainty, it's proqress' Create subtle ideas from varying inspirations, subjects and styles. Ignore the so-called 'rules'; they are for people following formulas.

Let's face it: we go to iconic locations for a reason. Try to view these places from a less obvious vantage point For my image

of Saltwick Bay (see page 20), I chose to coincide my dawn visit with the less popular high water. I'd seen many Impressive sunrise compositions of Black Nab at low tide (I've

The difference 30 minutes makes

Timing is of the essence when shooting at dawn, as the quality of light changes quickly and dramatically. With the image below left, I kept slightly in from the east-facing edge of the forest, just enough for the light to filter through the trees. My aim was to use the foliage to cast misty shadows and use the trees as a partial filter to avoid bleaching

out the central detail. I wanted to exploit the

atmosphere of the autumnal dawn, with a feeling of energy seeping through the gloom.

If you consider the same type of shot only half an hour later (below right), you

can see how quickly the conditions developed. The contrast became stronger and the colour faded as the sun moved higher and began

to burn off the mist. This highlights the importance of being in the exact location

22 I www.amateurphotogl'i:lpher.CO.uk I 6 March 2010

at the right time if you want to exploit optimum conditions.

On this particular morning I had an eight-year-old apprentice, who was more interested in finding birds' nests than using the camera and tripod I had given him for his first-ever dawn expedition. You can see my son walking along the path in the second shot.

~ Exercise caution

when excluding popular subjects and composnions. After all, they are classic for a reason ~ 'J

even seen the tripod holes), but this time I suppressed the temptation to bag a classic Nab in the risky attempt of defining the shot as my own.

However, be wamed: exercise caution when excluding popular subjects and compositions, After all, they are classic for

a reason and pushing your picture too far away from the archetype carries the danger of your audience misunderstanding it. You are, after all, trying to communicate with

an audience wider than yourself.

Sunrise vs sunset

As the sun gets closer to the horizon, the intensity of the light becomes filtered by

the increased depth of atmosphere. This subtly changes the strength and the mixture of colours you may experience, which

is why the light around dusk and dawn

is considered of superior quality. Dawn, however, brings a few more environmental and emotive advantages.

Temperature is the main catalyst influencing the quality of light At dawn you're much more likely to encounter dramatic conditions such as frost, mist and dew There is frequently less wind and this stillness adds misty atmosphere, Often

you can see the subtle changes in colour within the sky before the sun dramatically increases the contrast. Look at the cloud thickness and note wind direction, as this will indicate any coming breaks and predict forthcoming events

Yet why are dawn conditions considered so dramatic? There is an understandable human value to painstakmgly crafted imagery, and, let's be honest, crawling out of bed painfully early time and time again in pursuit of perfection favours the persistent (though that's not what my

wife would call it). However, I find it's often more illuminating to analyse the emotions a picture rouses, as thiS gives you a better understanding of how other people see

it. This is, after all, your central objective: attempting to stimulate the viewer's emotional engagement with your work.

As this is your goal, dawn's enormous optimistic potenllal can give your pictures an immediate connection with viewers. Sunrises speak of opportunities waiting

and offer peaceful solitude, untainted by human selfishness. Being on a deserted beach at dawn feels far more congenial than sharing the same dusk beach with parties of Cider-drinking, barbecue-making noise generators, AP

BOB Carlos Clarke's bold, well-crafted images made him one of the most famous photographers of his generation.

He is most often associated with glamorous, confrontational images

of beautiful women, often rubberclad and depicted as dominant and physically flawless Yet his work encompassed a much wider range of subjects, including celebrity portraits and still-life studies. Admired by his peers and popular with the public,

his work is now achieving the kind

of success in the fine-art world that eluded him in his lifetime.

Carlos Clarke, the son of a retired major, was born and brought up in Ireland. He later wrote that '1950s Southern Ireland was a fertile environment for the cultivation

of sexual oddity, rife with papal propaganda, Protestant prudery, bigotry, hypocrisy and ignorance.' He spent ten unhappy years at public schools from the age of eight. This induded several years at Wellington College In England, from where

he wrote frequent tearful letters

to his parents.

After leaving school he went to Worthing College of Art in West Sussex. Sex was a driving force in his work from the outset and he claimed that he took up photography as a way of getting to know a beautiful girl in the year above him called Sue, who did part-time modelling. She soon became his lover and later his first wife.

Carlos Clarke's passion for the medium was immediate; he had found something he enjoyed doing and which also enabled him to meet and photograph attractive women without their clothes on. To generate income he began photographing nudes for publications, including Men Only

and Penthouse, while continuing his education. He undertook a degree

in photography at the London College of Printing and went on to complete

later admitted that he got himself 'thoroughly rubber-stamped with a reputation that became an embarrassment.'

His first book, In whICh he provided images to illustrate Anais Nin's erotic novel Delta of Venus, was published in 1980. This was the start of a decade in which Carlos Clarke became a highly successful photographer. He was commissioned to shoot portraits, advertiSing campaigns for high-profile clients and glamour calendars. In

the studio, Carlos Clarke often

used his larger-than-life persona to provoke a reaction from his models, while his attention to technical perfecuon, particularly lighting, bordered on the obsessive.

He went on to shoot portraits of celebrities including Keith Richards,

Dita Von Teese and Rachel Weisz. However, he generally preferred working with unknown models. He would often approach girls in the street and ask them to pose for him, or go out late at night to London nightclubs to search for his next muse.

Despite his addiction to highenergy photo shoots with glamorous women, there was also a completely different side to his work. He enjoyed still-lifes and his subjects were mainly found objects such as stones, flowers and cutlery. 'I shot the cutlery to stop myself going crazy: he later said, 'and I consider these and the stones to be among my best photographs.' After the sinking of the

Carlos Clarke enjoyed many successful years in the business. However, hs high-energy, unpredictable personality and the kind of work he liked to create eventually contributed to his downfall.

Although he had highly creative phases there was also a profoundly dark side to his character. His second wife, Lindsey, has said that towards the end of his life he often talked about suicide or sank into deep depressions. At the same time, the price of haVing a distinctive and successful style was that he was still strongly associated with

It after it was no longer fashionable Commissions became less plentiful.

Although he continued working and published the autobiographical book Shooting Sex in 2003, he was behaving increasingly erratically. In early 2006 he was admitted for treatment to The Priory in south London, where he was declared psychotic and initially put on suicide watch, It seemed that he was responding to treatment, but on

25 March he walked to a level crossing at Barnes, leaped the barrier and

Since his death, Carlos Clarke's

work has become highly sought-after by collectors and his images have appeared in the National Portrait Gallery - an honour denied In his lifetime, He himself was aware of the allure that a tragiC death brings to

an artist's work. 'For the purposes of deification, an early and appropriate death is essential: he wrote in Shooting Sex. 'If you want to qualify as a legend, get famous young, die tragically and dramatically, and never underestimate the importance of your unrepeatable, irreplaceable, iconic photographs' AP

how a series of wildlife images can be far more revealing than a single animal portrait. He talks to Gemma Padley

YOU can tell a great deal about an animal from a single photograph - not least the colours and textures

of its fur or feathers, its behaviour and, if you're lucky, its personality. Yet a series of images portrays far more of an animal's underlying lifestyle, such as its fundamental animal instincts and how it responds to

its surroundings. While no serious wildlife photographer would be WIthout the obligatory animal portrait, there is much to be gained from applying a documentary approach to photographing wildlife.

One photographer who threw himself headfirst into this way of working is chief RSPCA photographer Andrew Forsyth. In 2007, Andrew set out on a six-month trip to India, Gibraltar and Japan. In Japan, he spent a month photographing the snow monkeys at Jlgokudani Monkey Park in Joshinetsu Kogen National Park, located in the centre of Honshu, Japan's main island. 'Although I take pictures for a hving, I have little time to devote to my own photography', says Andrew. 'I decided to hang the cost and take six months off work to do my dream project I left work on the Friday and got straight onto a plane to Japan.'


Andrew's desire to photograph snow monkeys came following a trip to the Kruger National Park in South Africa,

38 I www.amateurphoto9Oc1pher.co.uk I 6 March 2010

where he had been photographing on safari. 'I saw some monkeys scavenging for food and was fascinated by the complexity of their behaViour: he says. 'I wanted to look at how humans live with monkeys specifically, and what this tells us about how we interact With wildlife in general. Urban and agricultural development has had an impact on wildlife across the world and there are very few places that are true wildernesses, so irs important we learn how to live with wildlife.'

Andrew spent six months researching

the snow monkeys' behaviour before the trip. 'I developed a good understanding of some of the important issues, which helped when thinking about the kind of shots I wanted to take: he says 'You absorb bits of information, so when you're shooting you can be more mstncnve If you've done the research and have a thorough overall view of what you want from your project, the shots will click In your mind.'

Staff members at the park were welcoming and grateful for the publicity, says Andrew. 'On the first day I explained in my best pidgin Japanese what I wanted to do: he says. 'I paid the entry fee for a couple of days, but after a while they waved me through. The staff knew I

(' Thinking in series

C To create a successful series of

images requires a clear goal before you set out, says Andrew. 'The project has to be something you are personally engaged With. You have to remember that you are relaying a serious message to the viewer, so it's important to keep reviewing where you are with the project to keep on track. There's no harm In taking many photos - you can photograph anything, even if it seems to be conveying the "wrong" message. You don't have to Include it In the final project'

Travelling all the way to Japan to do a month-long project on snow monkeys is a huge undertaking. Surely Andrew had to break the project down into manageable sections or themes? 'It's tricky to do this, as animals will do what they want to do when they want to do it: he says. 'If they choose not to come down to your location on that day, you can't do anything about it You

can put yourself in a position where you're more likely to get a particular shot, but you shouldn't ignore everything else that's going on. If you're constantly trying to construct an image, forcing it to say something, you'll lose that element of spontaneity. The beauty of working on a long project like this is that

you can do the shots again if you haven't quite got them right:

Not wanting to bait the monkeys, Andrew decided to take the role of an observer.

'I didn't want to interfere with what was going on or manufacture my images: he says 'A documentary wildlife project is mostly observational. You're like a street photographer, looking for relationships as they happen There was lots going on, so all the time I was asking myself, "What shots am I missing? What part of this animal's life do I still need to SllOW?" Then I'd think about how I could achieve that When you continuously watch one species, you become in-tune with their behavioural traits.'

While there was a limit to how much Andrew could plan his shots, he did have

40 I www.arnateurphotoqrapher.co.uk I 6 March 2010

certain images in mind that he wanted to take. 'I had to include a picture of a monkey in the pool - the classic portrait: he says. 'There isn't any harm getting these images out of the way first, as this frees you up to explore the brief and let the project unfold'

A low camera angle draws the eye into the scene

live caused Andrew to take shots not seen

in traditional wildlife photography. 'A lot of photographers work in places where the wildlife is to some extent "managed" - there may be people around or fences or gates - but you never see any of that in the images: says Andrew. 'I wanted viewers to look at my images and understand what has gone on

in that moment, which may mean including people in the composition [see above right).

I feel a moral obligation to show an animal's exstence in its entirety'

It was never Andrew's intention to produce a body of aesthetically perfect images. His main concern was to record

the monkeys' behaviour as accurately and vibrantly as he could. 'Beautiful images

that have no depm don't interest me: says Andrew. 'I can appreciate an image of a beautifully lit lion, but it doesn't move me deeply. When shooting in a reportage way,

I look for something that stimulates me intellectually as well as Visually It's important for me to convey a message.'

Andrew captured action as well as classic portraits

Working method

Up at the crack of dawn come rain or shine, Andrew worked outdoors all day, every day, often in very cold conditions. Working handheld using his Canon EOS-1D Mark II N, Andrew used a selection of lenses including 16-3Smm,

1 00-400mm and 35mm optics, making sure he took a selection of wideangle contextual shots and close portraits. 'I had the lenses to hand, so I could switch quickly

subscribe 0845676 7778

if I saw something happening; he says. 'I could get down to eye level in certain places around the pool, and not having a tripod allowed me to be flexible in my choice of camera angles'

Often using high ISO settings of 800

and 1600 to cope with the dull light he encountered, Andrew sacrificed a little in image quality so he could use faster shutter

Monkeys and humans

One of the key images Andrew wanted to capture was a

snow monkey bathing in an artificial thermal pool. He felt it was important to include this image to illustrate the relationship between the snow monkeys and humans. 'There was originally a

guest house where the monkey park now exists and people

would bathe in the thermal pool,' explains Andrew. 'The snow monkeys lived in the mountains and would come down to steal food. After a while the monkeys started

to use the pool. Eventually, one was built for the monkeys [see below].

'Picturing the monkey with a human tells us something

about the evolution of the species. This is the reality of how the monkeys live. They now spend their winters sitting in hot-water baths instead

of eating as much food as possible to survive the bitter cold. They didn't behave like this before humans came along - their behaviour has been changed by our culture. We have a responsibility to ensure these animals are looked after.

speeds and capture the monkeys as they moved. 'I was prepared to work with the light and whatever conditions it threw at me: he says. 'I was more concerned with the content of the images, so a little digital noise was fine. If people were interested in what I was doing, I would stop and explain as I felt it was important to photograph with an open approach. Ultimately, I would go with the

flow - if something were happening, I would photograph it'

The process of keeping his creative spark going was one of the biggest challenges, says Andrew. 'Constantly looking for moments to photograph was extremely tiring,' he says. 'After two weeks I thought I'd seen everything there was to see, but I forced myself to keep going. It was very lonely at times - you have to overcome a period of being bored and ata low ebb.'

Number of shots

Andrew took more than 2,000 shots each day, so the process of selecting which images to keep was a long and difficult

task. He was conscious not to include aesthetically pleasmq Images if they didn't support his project. 'If you are attached to an image it can be hard to let it go: he says. 'I shot 45,000 images in the field and came back with 15,000, from which I made my selections. You have to set a high-quality threshold and stick to it. I'm stili editing

the images, but when I feel the project is complete I hope to produce a book.'

Working in a documentary style is something Andrew intends to continue doing. 'Applying this approach has improved the way I work: he SiJiS. 'My planning is more thorough and I'm more focused when shooting. I no longer visit a location and photograph animals as they wander by: AP

ONONE software, the maker of Plug-in Suite 5, has developed more than 140 preset image styles for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. They are available to download in a single package from the OnOne Software website. and the best part is that the package is free.

Once downloaded, the presets are automatically installed, saving you the need to hunt around your hard disk looking for the correct folder in which to put the preset files. When installation is complete, all 140 settings appear in the Presets window of Lightroom's Developer module. Simply select your image and choose your preset style.

One of the most useful combinations of presets is the Reset Auto, Reset Default and Reset Zeroed options, which set the image to its automatic, default and completely neutral settings with the click of a button.

There IS a huge variety of presets, from white balance and coloor adjustment to vignette and gradient effects.

I found the black & white options particularly useful, and with so many available it is easy to find one for any image.

Some of the image styles may not be to * everyone's taste, but any that aren't useful * can be deleted. If you use Adobe Photoshop * Lightroom, why not download the Lightroorn

APS-C vs Full Frame On Jest

can produce similar (or even better) quality images to a model with a larger sensor is enticing on several levels, not least because the smaller sensor size usually makes tile camera more affordable. As such, there was quite a bit of excitement when our test of the APS-C -format Canon EOS 70 revealed that it produces images that give the full-frame EOS 5D Mark II a run for its money. In this test I'm going to see if the new generation of APS-C cameras really can produce

the type of quality we have come to expect from full-frame models. The EOS 50 Mark II and EOS 70 will be the main focus, but I'll also compare the results from tile Nikon 03S and 03005, and the Sony Alpha 850 and Alpha 550, and look at tile pros and cons of full-frame and APS-Cformat photography

(anon EOS 50 Mark II

Canon's EOS 50 was the first camera to make full-frame digital

photography possible for many enthusiast photographers. It allowed them to use the lenses they had been using on their Canon 35mm film cameras and see exactly the same composition in the viewfinder. The larger sensor also allowed room for bigger photo receptors so, in addition to haVing a greater pixel count, the camera could produce

images with less noise V than Its APS-C -format

counterparts. I rs worth

These two sequences were taken from exactly the same spot to demonstrate the impact of the 1.6x focal length multiplication factor across the 16-3Smm focal length range

E remembering at this pomt that sometimes it isn't the amount of visible noise

that IS a problem for image quality, but the level of noise reduction that is applied to the files. Canon has in the past been guilty of being a little too liberal with its noise-reduction algorithms, and some of the EOS 5D's APS-C -format contemporaries were prone to producing rather soft J PEG flies as a result

As it sat just on the right side of affordability (In comparison to Canon's EOS-1 D-series DSLRs), the EOS

5D was a big seller and was popular With professional and enthusiast photographers alike. However, after around three years it was starting to look a little dated and in September 2008 its replacement, the EOS

5D Mark II, was unveiled. With the possible exception of its HD video capability, this camera's specification was fairly predictable, and the upgrade was primarily about bringing the camera into line with Canon's other DSLR offerings with the inclusion

of Live View technology, a sensor cleaning system, 14-bit processing, Highlight Tone Priority and Auto Lighting Optimiser. The increase In pixel count to 21.1 million effective pixels and the Digic 4 processor could also have been anticipated One significant change from the original EOS 5D, however, was the ability to expand the native sensitivity range from ISO 100-6400, to include settings equivalent to ISO 50, 12,800 and 25,600. This highest setting, whicll is now trumped by tile ISO 102,800 of the Nikon D3S and Canon EOS-l D Mark IV, matched what was possible with high-end Nikon OSLRs at the time.

While the EOS 50 Mark II's arrival had been anticipated for many months, the EOS 7D came as a surpnse to many. It isn't an upgrade or a replacement for an earlier model, but it usurped the EOS SOD's position at the top of Canon's APSC -format line-up and is the First of a

Matching composition

There are essentially two ways of matching the framing of images when shooting with APS-C-format and full-frame cameras. The

first is to have greater distance between the subject and the APSC-format camera than with the full-frame model. The second is to adjust the focal length so that the effective angle of view is the same on both cameras. I used both of these approaches during this test to produce comparable images.

new series of Canon cameras with a single-digit name.

The camera's specification also revealed a few surprises, suggesting that Canon has started to rethink some of its previous policies and was wanting to tackle the challenge raised by Nikon and, to a lesser extent, Sony. For instance, after saying for several years that it was unnecessary because of the existence of the Speed lite Transmitter ST-E2, the manufacturer finally conceded that in-camera wireless flash control is desirable. The EOS 70 also debuted a 19-point

AF system that borrows features

from the EOS-1 D Mark III to allow

the photographer to customise its response to suit the subject, and the new Focus Colour Luminance (iFCL) metering system, which uses subject distance, colour and luminance information In comparison, the EOS 50 Mark II has the same metering and AF systems as its predecessor with Canon's well-established 35-zone evaluative metering system (backed up by centreweighted, partial and

spot metering), and nine selectable

AF points supported by six non-userselectable auxiliary points.

While Nikon is 1irmly sticking to its guns that 12 million pixels is enough on an APS-C -szed sensor (and,

with the exception of the D3X, on

a full-frame device), Canon IS a bit more ambitious in this respect. When the EOS 70 was announced, the prospect of images with 18 million pixels being produced by a camera with a 22.3x14.9mm (APS-C sized)

APS-C vs Full Frame On Test

CMOS sensor was both alarming and exciting at the same time. Although the images might be large, there was also the possibility that they could be very noisy - like the results from the EOS 50D - or suffer from the effects of heavy-handed noise reduction. However, Canon employed a new sensor with less circuitry for the EOS 7D, which allows its photodiodes to be larger, helping high-sensitivity and

dynamic range performance.

Canon also employed a new design for the diodes to allow them to convert more light into an electrical charge for a higher signal-to-noise ratio. The diode's capacity has also been increased to reduce overloading in bright light and extend the dynamic range. As in the EOS 50 Mark

II, the gapless micro lenses over

the photodiodes sit closer to the

photoreceptors. enabling more light to reach the sensitive surface. All these factors combine to allow the EOS 7D to produce significantly larger, cleaner and more detail-rich images than we have seen before from a Canon APS-C -format OSLR.

Our tests show that the EOS 50 Mark II and EOS 70 produce very similar levels of noise across the sensitivity range. However, despite the current climate of competition for high-sensitivity settings, (anon capped the EOS 70 at ISO 12,800. Perhaps any higher was a step too far with the APS(-format sensor, or the company wanted to give the EOS 50 Mark II an advantage.

Of course, it is possible that the company has changed its opinion of what is an acceptable level of noise.

Although the ISO 25,600 setting on the EOS 50 Mark II can produce some excellent results, the shadows otten suffer from banding and this sensitivity needs to be used with caution. At ISO 12,800, the EOS 70's maximum sensitivity setting is lEV

d sensitivity

lower, with obvious implications for the shutter speed, but the images are evenly textured and banding isn't a problem.

Our resolution chart images show that the EOS 50 Mark II is capable of resolving a little more detail than the EOS 70, but in photographic images it is more difficult to distinguish between the results from the two cameras than some might expect.

When comparing default-setting JPEG

files with the same framing taken at ISO 200 with the EF 24-70mm f/2.8l USM lens wide open on each camera, the image from the EOS 50 Mark II is a little softer and less detailed than the shot from the EOS 70. However, when the aperture is closed down the image becomes sharper and the details are much crisper.

These images show 72ppi (100% on a computer screen) sections of images of a resolution chart. We show the section of the resolution chart where the camera starts to fail to reproduce the lines separately. The higher the number visible in these images, the beller the camera's detail resolution is at the specified sensitivity selling. Images are taken using the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro lens

EOS 50 Mark II measure 4755x31.7on, while those from the EOS 70 measure 43.89x29.26cm. This

means both cameras are capable of producing images that make good A3 (297x42cm) prints When A2 (42x59.4cm) prints are required, the resolution of the EOS 50 Mark II's images must be dropped to 240ppi, while those from the EOS 70 must be printed at around 223ppi. At lower sensitivities it is impossible

to distinguish between images

are enlarged in this way. At higher sensitivity settings, however, the EOS 70's Images are more granular and chroma nose is visible, The amount of noise isn't objectionable, but the EOS 50 Mark II images are smoother.

Opti(s and fotallength

As an APS-( -format sensor is smaller than a full-frame device, it effectively crops the image when a full-frame lens is mounted. The result IS similar to using a longer focal length

optic than the one actually mounted on the camera, so the effect is often referred to as focal length magnification With (anon's APS(-format DSLRs such as the EOS 70, the focal length magnification factor is 16x, but with Nikon and Sony models such as the 0300S and Alpha 550 it is 15x.

For enthusiast photographers who started out with 35mm film cameras, the focal length magnification of APS(-format DSLRs can be a source of some frustration, as a much-loved

The extra magnification of the APS-C-format sensor gives this macro image more impact

24mm optic on an EOS 70 produces the framing that we would expect to see at around 38mm. However, at least APS-(-format cameras use the central area of 35mm-format lenses, and this can benefit image quality

In recent years manufacturers have addressed the magnification issue by producing much wider optics specifically deSigned to work with the

Although it has a full-frame sensor, the Sony Alpha 850 has an effective pixel count of 24.& million, so the imaging device is crowded with tiny photoreceptors. While this enables the camera to record an enormous amount of detail and resolve lines further along our resolution chart than almost any other camera, the tiny photosites only generate a weak signal and consequently high-sensitivity images

are very noisy. However, high-sensitivity images taken on the Alpha 850 still have less noise than those captured by the 14.2-million-pixel Alpha 550. It's not really surprising that Sony has capped the Alpha 850's sensitivity at ISO &400, but the Alpha 550's sensitivity range may be set as high as ISO 12,800. You can expect to see plenty of chroma noise in the Alpha 550's raw files captured at the highest sensitivity

settings, and although there is also a reasonable amount of detail visible, prints are best kept to A4 or smaller.

Naturally, the lower pixel count of the Alpha 550 means it isn't able to resolve as much detail as the Alpha 850, but it gives a reasonable account of itself in our resolution tests. However, its performance is marred by mirror-slap, which causes blurring even when the camera is mounted on a tripod.

smaller-format cameras. Canon's shortest focal length, for example, appears in a zoom lens for the

APS-C format: the EF-S 10-22mm f/35-4.5. This has an RRP of £990 and it produces images similar to a 16- 35mm lens on 35mm format. A list price of JUst under £ 1,000 is not to be sniffed at, but full-frame users who want the same framing will find they have to shell out considerably more for the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM, which Is listed at £ 10400, or

the EF 16- 35mm f/28L II USM at £1.790. Although these two lenses benefit from Canon's superior L-series bUild quality and a wider (constant) maximum aperture, full-frame users may prefer to opt for the EF 17- 40mm f/4L USM, which has a more manageable RRP of 5:940.

At the other end of the focallength spectrum, the APS-C format's magnification factor allows photographers to frame distant subjects more tightly than full-frame photographers can with the same optic. This means that on the EOS 7D, the 5:960 EF 200mm f/28L II USM offers framing not too far off what is seen with the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM, which has a list price of £5,630. The shorter length lens

isn't stabilised, but at 765g it's less than a third of the weight of the 2.55kg 300mm optic, and as it's almost half as long it is easier to hold still anyway. It also takes up a lot less space in your bag and is easier to carry, so you are far more likely to take it out in the first place.

The focal length magnification factor is also useful with close-up and macro photography, as subjects appear larger in the frame at the same focusing distance. As such, a lens that achieves 1:1 magnification effectively produces images with 1.61 or 1.5:1 magnification, depending upon the APS-C camera of choice.

Depth of field

When an APS-C-format camera

is used to record the same composition as a full-frame model, the images from the smaller-format camera have greater depth of field at any given aperture The properties of the lens and aperture in use don't magically change, but getting the same composition with an APS-Cformat camera means that it must either be moved further

away from the subject than V the full-frame model, or a

shorter focal length optic

Nikon D300S and D3S

The Nikon 0300S and 03S are closely related, and although one has an

APS-C -sized sensor and the other has a full-frame device they have a great deal in common. The 03S demonstrates what is currently possible with a 12.1-millionpixel full-frame sensor; our tests reveal that it controls noise exceptionally well, even at very high-sensitivity settings. Consequently, Nikon has set the highest

native sensitivity setting to ISO 12,800, but this may be expanded a further 3 stops to the equivalent of ISO 102,400. Noise levels are comparatively high at this setting, but it means the camera is able to operate

in light levels that previously required specialist infrared kit.

While the 0300S is an excellent camera, its smaller sensor has almost the same pixel count (12.3 million) as the full-frame

03S and, as a consequence, noise becomes noticeable lower down the sensitivity range. At ISO 1600, for instance, images from the 0300S have about the same amount of noise as those taken at ISO 12,800 on the 03S. Although their pixel count is very similar, the 03S's low noise levels enables it to record a little more detail than the 0300S, but the difference is not dramatic and the 0300S is very capable.

When shooting a subject with near 1:1 magnification with both the EOS 7D and EOS 5D Mark II uSing a Sigma 1 05mm f/2,8 EX OG macro lens, for example, I found that the aperture needed to be closed down to f/4 with the EOS 50 Mark II to produce a Similar depth of field to the EOS 7D at f/28 AP

50 I www,amateurphotographer_co,uk I 6 March 2010 camera size

Traditionally, we expect professional-level and fullframe cameras to be larger and heavier than those with APS-C or smaller-format sensors aimed at enthusiasts. This is borne out by the differences between the Nikon 0300S (147xl14x74mm and 825g) and cameras

further up the Nikon OSLR

line such as the 0700 (147x123x77mm and 995g) and 03S (159.5x157x87.5mm and 1,240g). Similarly, the

Sony Alpha 850 is considerably larger (156.3xl16.9x81.9mm) and heavier (850g) than the Alpha 550 (137xl04x84mm and 599g). However, there

are only a few millimetres difference between the Canon EOS 70 (148.2xll0.7x73.5mm) and EOS 50 Mark II (152x113.5x75mm) and,

at 820g, the EOS 70 is 109 heavier than its full-frame counterpart.

It is worth bearing in mind that full-frame lenses have to cover a larger imaging cirde than their APS-C-format equivalents, so they are generally larger and heavier. Consequently, it may not be the cameras that determine

the difference in weight

of a camera bag, but the

optics used with them.

As this investigation has shown, new developments in sensor technology mean that the APS-C-format EOS 70 is capable of resolving almost as much detail as the full-frame EOS 5D Mark II and the results

have a similar level of noise. However, the 03S and 0300S demonstrate the positive impact that larger photosites can have upon the level of noise in image, Meanwhile, the Sony Alpha 850 and Alpha 550 show how increasing the pixel count of a camera allows it to capture more detail.

When Canon eventually replaces the EOS 50 Mark II, it is reasonable to expect the new camera to have technology that IS at least on a par with, if not ahead of, that found in the EOS 70, and the pixel count could go up. This is purely speculation, but it would mean that the full-frame camera could jump ahead of the EOS 70.

While manufacturers now offer very short focal length lenses to counter the negative aspects of the focal-length magnification factor experienced with APS-C -format cameras, the optics specifically designed for the smaller format don't tend to have as large a maximum aperture as their full-frame counterparts. This isn't a problem for photographers concerned with capturing images with extensive depth of field, but those who like to shoot with limited depth of field may struggle to achieve the degree of blur they want. On the plus side, wildlife and sports photographers are able to frame their subjects more closely with smaller,less costly lenses when they shoot with an APS-C-fonrnat camera than when they use a full-frame camera.

Differences in size and weight have in the past been a deciding factor for photographers choosing between a full-frame and an APS-C -format camera, but the EOS 70 and EOS 50 Mark II indicate this may not always be the case,

Given that the EOS 7D and EOS 50 Mark II are both capable of producing images that make good A2 prints, perhaps we have reached the point where photographers can choose between full-frame and APS-C -format cameras on the basis of the type of photography they prefer, rather than because of significant differences in the quality of the images they produce,

Let the AP team answer your photographic queries

Mint condition

Ivor Matanle replies The Pentax Auto 11 0 was marketed between 1979 and 1983 and was an interchangeable-lens SlR using 110 film, As far as I know, it was always sold as a boxed outfit like this handsome example The outfit came with a 24mm standard lens, an 18mm wideangle and a 50mm long-focus lens, an auto-winder, a flashgun, cases and a set of filters and hoods. An updated version with minor improvements appeared in 1982. The cameras usually turn up 30 years on with the two additional lenses and the winder, somenmes with the flash as well, but usually without the fi Iters and the other bits and pieces. In that form they are common and not greatly sought after. Complete OUtfits, with all tile bits and the original box are moderately scarce, and in almost new condition they are obviously more scarce, However, there is not a major market for them. At the end of January a Penta x 110 with all three lenses, winder and flash, plus most of the other bits but no box, attracted eight bids on eBay and sold for £3050, and a camera and standard lens alone made £ 12.50.

Jonathan Mallett asks My neighbour has a boxed, mint-condition Pentax Auto 11 0 system with many of the filters never having been opened (see below). Is this rare, particularly as it's in mint condition?

Sam Smith asks Having read your news item about the new Sony Alpha 450, I notice that the company has moved

from Compact Flash (CF) to Secure Oigital cards (SO). Is there any reason for this? Is SO better than CF? As a Sony user I have gathered a few CF cards (at some expense) and if I upgrade I will need to buy new SO cards too. Also, can I securely wipe my CF cards if I

was to sell them on e8ay?

Ian Farrell replies I asked Paul Genge of Sony UK about the company's move to SO cards. He replied: 'The main reason for the switch is consumer demand. Alpha was the First [Sony] product group to introduce SO into capture devices, while recent Cyber-shot and Handycam models have followed. We are now marketing SO cards as well.

Material for reflection

Willie45 asks I keep reading about Foamcore and its use as a cheap reflecting material for studios. However, I cannot find it in the UK cheaply. It costs a lot, although in the US Walmart apparently sells it for about $3 per 6x4ft strip. Can anyone suggest alternatives they have used successfully?

Hotbla(k replies Although not as cheap, DIY Framing (visit the website at www.diyframingcom) sells it at £3.83 for an A l-size sheet. which seems the going rate looking at other art-supply websites. Alternatively, get a huge piece of cardboard and either paint it white or cover it in tinfOil. If you go down the tinfoil route, scrunch up the foil a bit first before flattening it out and attaching it to the board. This diffuses the reflections and stops hotspots.

Phil W replies B&Q sells Jablite Flooring Insulation Polyboard, costing :S: 16.48 for a 2.4x1.2m piece This should do the rrick.

Willie45 replies I think the B&Q option might be the best bet, so I will follow this up. Many thanks.

the majority of our new OSLR owners are coming from digital compacts, they are using SO cards in the main. SO cards do have the secondary benefit of a reduction in size. This means we can package dual slots

When it comes to securely wiping CF cards for second-hand sale,

it's true that Just formatting them in the camera won't do the job; you can

Now that the pixel wars are over, features like HO video capture are meant to be the next thing that will tempt us to part with our cash, and indeed there are statistics that prove the camera manufacturers

There are applications that write

do anything like this before,' he gushed. Then there are photojoumalists, such as John 0 McHugh, who re<enUy described himself as 'no longer a photojournalist, but a multimedia journalist'. Some of his powerful documentaries from Afghanistan are testament to this.

I know there will be stalwart photographers who see the inclusion

Howto submit Y9ur pictures

Send up to six prints, slides or images on CD (please include the original files from the camera along with your submitted versions on your CD). Tell us a litlie about the pictures and, if you can, include details of equipment used and exposure settings.

Send your photographs to 'Appraisal' at our usual address (see page )). Please enclose

an SAE if you would like them returned.

Venice Ian Slater

picture is a perfect example of that. One building is in the sun and Is very white and pale, and the other is in the shade and is dark. Ian needed to reduce the exposure slightly to make the picture a little darker. The shaded areas can afford to go darker without losing too much detail, and the sunlit building needs to be darker because its detail is bleached out.

While I can't fix tile problem post-capture, I can do a little work to give you an idea of what could have been achieved. Using Photoshop, I have selected the sunlit buildings and darkened them. I've then darkened the whole image slightly (see left). Tile only real way to correct for this problem, tllough, is to make an exposure adjustment in-camera, but it will cause a little loss of detail In the shadows. Of course, there's no real reason why you can't use a neutral density graduated filter on its side for this sort of city shot. People tend to think that ND grads are only for the sky, but if Ian had used one here, placing the graduated area over the right-hand side of the Image, he could have darkened it and created a more balanced contrast.

It is a lovely picture, though, and it reminds me that it has been a long time since I last visited Venice. It's about time I went there again

Canon EOS SOE, 28-80mm, Fujicolor Superia 200

Ian has submitted some beautiful pictures of Venice in northern Italy, and while the city can be something

of a photographic cliche, it is also a photographic wonderland and one of my favourite locations. Unfortunately for the photographer, there are always so many other people who feel the same. That said, It is stili possible to get photographs with a fresh perspective.

This picture shows a gondolier pushing off a wall with his foot as he navigates around a tight bend. It's not the Grand Canal or one of those sights that is instantly recognisable, yet it IS

obviously Venice. The quiet back 'street' and lack of people really transport you to the dty, and that is what photography is all about. Ian's done a great job and it's a lovely composition.

The only issue with the picture is a common one when photographing Venice: the high contrast between buildings that are in the shade and those that are in full sunlight. This

Greenwich Park in spring Tom Frost

Panasonic Lumix DMC-Gl. 14-4Smm. 1/200sec at f/6.3

Photographing trees in a park IS astonishingly difficult because we always struggle to find a pleasing composition that shows the height and shape of the trees, but without looking ordinary. This is because parks tend to be flat and cluttered with benches. people, buggies, paths and so on. However much I enjoyadually being in a park, I always find it difficult to translate those satisfying feelings into a satisfying photograph.

Greenwich Park in London is a place I've been to many times; I love being there and I take lots of photographs. However, I've never come back with

a picture that's as pleasing as this

one. At first, it is perhaps difficult to appreciate what it is that makes Tom's picture so satisfying I find it nice and relaxing, and I think this is down to the following reasons.

The print Tom has sent me is

quite small, probably only 6in long, so everything is very compressed. As the picture is small, we can't

see all those little distracting details that would generally be annoying, such as the people in the distance and the dogs running around on the grass By making it small (and I don't know whether or not Tom has done this on purpose), the picture has become a series of hnes, shapes

and colours. This is probably exactly what we see and enjoy when we are in a park, which could be why photographs have difficulty doing

it justice Here, though, Tom has recreated that feeling.

He has succeeded in keeping

the camera nice and straight, and upright, and he's included lots of foreground showing dappled sunlight and the shadows of the trees laid

out across the grass, which IS

beautifully green The fresh leaves growing on the trees mean that we have both the angular twisting shapes of the branches and trunks, and a fine haze of a light green colour as the leaves come out. The pattern of the trees, running from the foreground off to the right, seems to curve round and disappear back across the frame, right through the middle. The people who are present are very small and completely Inoffensive, so our eyes

are not drawn diredly to them; we just know that they're there.

There are two people encroaching on the far left of the scene in the middle of the frame that draw my attention a little too much, so perhaps they could be removed, but it's a beautiful scene with very fresh, lovely colours and nice patterns. I think it would look nice on the wall, but again printed smaiL For these reasons, it is my picture of the week.

Pebble face Dave Hill

Exposure details not known

I am not usually a great fan of these sorts of pictures - tree trunks with funny markings or carrots in rude poses - but this pebble picture from Dave really caught my eye, and for a couple of reasons First, the image on the pebble is immediately obvious and, crucially, quite comicaL Second, Dave has photographed it particularly welL 'Pebble face' is all that is in the picture, apart from the ground on which it

is Sitting, and it's perfectly lit with no dstracnons in the background. The pebble has been photographed

in a very matter-of-fact way, as

though Dave is shooting a portrait rather than a stone with a funny

face on it It's as if the pebble IS actually a real person, and the rock

on which it is sitting forms the shoulders. It looks like the sort of ghoul that would chase Scooby-Doo

and Shaggy, the hapless heroes of the famous cartoon series.

Technically, I think ths would have been a difficult image to capture. Dave had to keep the white of the pebble looking white while making the background very dark, which really

helps it to stand out. It hasn't gone completely black, though, as there's still enough detail viSible to show

that it was shot in nature and not in

a studio, which gives it a very natural look. Sometimes when photographing funny subjects like thiS, we forget all

about our technical skills, but Dave

has taken a lot of care over his picture and it's very successful as a result It could be a head from a museum and would work well on a greetings card or postcard It's very simple and has been done very well. Well done, Dave.

Sensor dust is caused by the build up of static electricity in the mirror box, in the last 2 years new digital designed SLRs have an anti-static coating to minimize static charge build up, however, it does not always eliminate all charges and weak residual charges can still remain on the sensor surface.

The Final Frame

ROGER HICKS is a much-published author on photography. He

has written more than three dozen books on

the subject, many in partnership with his wife, Frances Schultz. Roger started photography as a teenager in the 1960s and worked professionally

in a London advertising studio in the mid-1970s. He has been a freelance photographer/writer since 1981, contributing

to many photography magazines, including Shutterbug in America. Visit his website at www. rogerandfrances.com.

Roger Hicks


ERE are two scenarios. One will be familiar to most of us The other will almost certainly not be, but we've all seen it in movies.

For the first, you arrange to meet someone In the pub at eight For the second, it is wartJme and you are on some desperate commando mission to blow up an enemy installation, also at eight, or 'twenty hundred', There are three groups, At five minutes to eight, one group is to detonate charges elsewhere, as a diversion, and another group is to set booby-traps on the escape route,

to be activated at fIve minutes past eight, while the third group carries out the demolition, Rendezvous for all three groups to make good their escape is set for quarter past eight Anyone who is not there at a quarter past eight will be left behind.

Fairly obviously, timing for the former is not critical. You can saunter over at a quarter to eight, or even at half past seven, and have a pint before your chum gets there. In the other direction. if either of you turns up 15 or even 20 minutes late, it is unlikely to matter, though if the other person didn't tum up, you might well go home after an hour or so Equally obviously, lives are at stake in the latter case: hence the famous (and Inevitable) 'Synchronise watchesl' scene.

Perhaps surprisingly, you can draw a close parallel in traditional silver-halide photography. Even half a minute's variation in development time is quite likely to make a significant difference. Yet when it comes to washing the film, prOvided you haven't used a hardening fixer there is no effective difference between ten minutes and an hour. Indeed, five minutes should be enough.

I know developing your own films will not be as much a part of the average AP reader's world picture as it was 20 years ago, so let's take an example from digital exposure. At least if you're shooting raw files (DNG and the like), you can dig out a lot of information from a badly underexposed file, much as you can if you scan an underexposed slide. Overexpose, though, and you'll soon blow the highlights to a featureless white, If you use auto exposure, you may even care to set the exposure compensation at -1/3 or possibly -2/3 stop, in order to give yourself a bigger buffer against accidental overexposure A whole stop, though, is probably too much.

Now switch to an 8x10in camera, shooting landscapes on black & white negative film, with a view to contact printing Quadrupling the metered exposure at the stated ISO - giving an extra 2 stops, rather than 1/3 stop less - is unlikely to have any adverse effects, apart from giving you a denser negative thattakes longer to print. Yes. the grain will be a bit bigger, and sharpness will be slightly reduced, but ths s not going to be detectable in a contact pnnt You may even prefer the tonality with the extra exposure.

Finally, consider a scenario that many

of us like to try from time to time. Pick up

an old un metered film camera, snck a roll of negative film in it (colour

or black & white), and take some pictures Guess the exposures, but err (or bracket) always on the side of overexposure You may miss the occasional picture, and you may get less than the optimum exposure in some of them: the loss of sharpness and bigger grain may be detectable if you're shooting 35mm and enlarging to 8x10in, although it probably won't be if you're using an old roil-film folder. The point is, you'll enjoy yourself. Why do it otherwise?

What is really weird is that this last scenario provokes some photographers to incandescent rage I have been told, flatly, that if I don't use a meter at all times, I clearly don't care about my photography. After more than four decades of taking my photography fairly seriously, and more than three decades of earning part or all of my living from it, ms struck me as a rather odd assernon

My interlocutor's hardening of the categories - his unshakeable belief that serous photographers always use meters - seems to me to be only one aspect of a profound ignorance about what's appropriate, and when, It takes one tiny aspect of human experience, and turns it into a universal rule. AP

~ I have been told, flatly, that if

I don't use a meter at all times, I clearly don't care about my photography ~~
