April 2012 Issue of PhotoComment Magazine

Our April 2012 issue of PhotoComment Magazine is out on shelves and is also live on the site. It has a great mix of informative and perhaps controversial content. Kicking off with Armani’s Editor’s Comment that tackles the issue of using a professional model over willing relatives, friends etc. Then you can dive into some examples of the entries in the “Scapes” theme of our Photo Decathlon. Remember, entries close for this theme at the end of this month. We have a Pro Portfolio by Shayne Robinson before diving into the techniques to better cellphone photographs (the May theme in the Decathlon). Cast your eyes on a new Koos van der Lende panoramic and the story behind it. We look at a handful of the top smart phone apps for your photographic pleasure before being taken on a game drive with the fantastic images of Darred Joubert in our Reader’s Portfolio. In the review section, you will find a group review of some of the top smart phones we have played with, as well as the Sony NEX-7 with Zeiss 24mm f/1.8. We also share our first impressions of the Canon EOS 5D Mk III (our apologies for publishing it with an incorrect image). The Final Comment looks at the use of smart phones with apps like Instagram in photo journalism.
