I received my complementary copies of the February/March 2014 issue of Photo Life magazine yesterday. I have a 3½ page article called Bugs in My Camera in this edition, and the images look great. Be sure to visit Splendour Awaits for more on macrophotography.
Here’s a small preview of the article:
This is a great edition, including:
- An Unexpected Call to Landscape Photography (about Patrick Di Fruscia) by Jenny Montgomery
- The Secret to Photographing Gardens by Louise Tanguay
- Nature Directed by Scott Linstead
- GPS Orienting and Geotagging by Dale Wilson
- and lots more.
Pick up your own copy of the latest edition of Photo Life, or find it in your local library! Subscribers can view the magazine online, and you can read it on your iPad through the Photo Life Ap.
When you walk along the steep western shores of parts of the island, the coastal rain forest is like a wall above you. But in some spots a creek has carved a gully for itself, an opening in the wall where no trees grow. That channel allows a stream of light to come through.

If you are a photography watcher, you soon see that images can become clichés, and when I am struck by the fact that the image in my viewfinder is just another prosaic view, I try to turn things around for a fresh perspective. In this case I have tended towards the dark and brooding, but you can’t dismiss the lightness of the up-side-down angel.
