Readers’ Shots

With Vanguard’s help, we publish three reader’s best images and reward them with a photo day-pack from Vanguard each month. If you want to have your images considered for publication, be sure to submit them here. This month’s readers are Henning S Pettersen, Tracy Kruger and Irene Spanellis.


Rising Star

The photography industry is blessed with talented new photographers trying to make it and together with Lexar, the ‘Rising Star’ feature is where we share some of these people’s images. In this issue we look at ten-year-old Carla Stander’s portfolio.

If you are an up and coming photographer and wish to share your work with us, plus get some goodies from Lexar should you be published, then submit your work here.


Special Photo & Film Expo Preview

It is the largest photographic event on the continent and with the fifth Photo & Film Expo happening at the end of October, we look at what you can expect in terms of speakers and workshops over the weekend. Book tickets via WebTickets.


Professional Portfolio

In this issue we bring you the inspiring street photography work of international photographer, Valerie Jardin. Based in the USA, Valerie conducts photographic workshops in her homeland France, her current home in the USA and Australia. A Canon shooter for some time, Valerie has recently been turning to Fuji’s X100S for her street photography. Stay tuned for an upcoming video interview with Valerie and her experience shooting with this retro-styled Fuji.


Techniques and Reviews

Get to see how the fashion cover for this image was planned and shot by Natalie Field. Use this tutorial to help you shoot a winning image for the Photon Fashion Fest competition which could see your image on the cover of PhotoComment and walking away with a studio light kit from Photon.

We also dive into the basics of video editing and how to use a polarising filter before getting hands on with a review of Canon’s tiny EOS 100D.
