Inside February 2012 Issue

Armani kicks off this issue by sharing his latest indulgence in film photography. That’s right; film – the analogue forefather to the digital sensor in your camera, or cellphone. Read the Editor’s Comment for more time travel.

Professional Portfolio

This issues Professional Portfolio is an international one. Sarah Daloise is a pet photographer who is based in Canada. If you are a fan of photographing fur, then this is just for you.

Technique

Compositing is the technique of creating an image from several photographs, or parts thereof. Armani shares this technique in the application of one of his favourite subjects: action photography.

Back Up Feature

In the last little while, several photographers I know have been hit by theft, or failing hard drives which have resulted in the loss of their precious images. For this reason, I took some time to write about how to back up your images. Read and apply it straight away.

Student Portfolio

Christine Visser is a student of Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and has a diverse range of  subjects in her portfolio. Her underwater photography, in particular, caught my eye.

Review

The Samsung NX-200 is only Samsung’s 4th mirrorless camera and is a very different ‘beast’ to its predecessors. You can see the condensed review by Armani in the magazine, or get the more in-depth review here on the PhotoComment site.

Final Comment

In 2012, I have undertaken to do a 365 (366 because of the leap year) photo project. In my Final Comment I talk about the experience thus far and issue a call for you to join me in this endeavour.
