Amateur Photographer Magazine
Amateur Photographer Magazine - 28th September Subscriptions | Pocketmags
We are pretty lucky in the UK to have so many iconic buildings and landmarks to shoot, providing a great opportunity to sharpen our photography skills without the expense and hassle of jumping on a plane. However, when shooting The London Eye, Edinburgh Castle or Stonehenge, it can be hard to know where exactly is best to take your shot. As with many of the other landmarks, veering away from a traditional head on shot can add atmosphere and perspective, as shown in this image of Buckingham Palace in the evening. The reflections on the pond in St. James Park add depth, and the clever positioning also captures the Queen Victoria Memorial through the trees. The problem is, you can end with very generic shots. The majority of Durdle Door shots are from the bay, pinpointing the famous Jurassic cove, but actually stepping back up the steps and framing the shot with them leads the eye down and makes the most of the full bay and the archway, too.
The magazine provides articles on equipment reviews, photographic technique, and profiles of professional photographers. Amateur Photographer was first published on 10 October , making it over years old. It has established itself as the world's number one weekly photography magazine [ citation needed ]. Each year's competition is run on a monthly basis, with each month having a dedicated "theme" for the images to adhere to.
Amateur Photographer magazine My favourite photography magazine was, and still remains though now only infrequently read , Amateur Photographer , affectionately known by all its readers as 'AP'. Here follows my tribute to a magazine that first saw the light of day on Friday 10th October and is still being published every week. In the late s, my mother purchased AP for me while I was still a teenager at school and I must have read and re-read almost all copies for at least a decade. I always looked forward to Wednesday when the latest issue arrived at the newsagents.
