Here’s what David DuChemin shared about PHOTOGRAPH Issue 13.

“Issue 13 of PHOTOGRAPH magazine highlights a variety of photographic adventures (close to my heart!), including the strength and elegance of being underwater, climbing to heart-stopping heights, hiking through the mystery of the Dowrog, and the sport of finding just the right light in a place you know like the back of your hand.

I’m thrilled to feature the portfolios and interviews with Mallory Morrison, who flows into the feeling of summer with a unique and graceful combination of fashion and dance—underwater; photographer/videographer Jordan Manley, who makes his craft a physical art; rural documentary photographer Chris Tancock, whose numerous collections are all made within a five-mile radius of his home; and the majestic Yosemite landscapes of Michael Frye, who has found the Park to be his perfect muse.

In addition to the featured portfolios, contributors John Paul Caponigro, Bruce Percy, Guy Tal, Chris Orwig, Martin Bailey, Adam Blasberg and I jump in with articles on improvisation, size, the philosophy of returning, finding your creative habitat, configuration, optimal focus modes, and how to make portraits in the tiniest of spaces.”

This installment in my column Creative Composition explores the power of Size.

Here’s an excerpt from the first article in my column Creative Composition.
Dynamics Not Rules
“When it comes to composition, there are no rules . . . except, perhaps, never say never and always avoid saying always. I recommend you don’t ask, “Should I . . .?”; rather, ask “What happens when I . . . ?”. But there are principles. Each element has a unique force and contributes to the whole. Each element influences the other, creating a cascading chain of action, reaction, and interaction. These forces are definable and consistent, so you can understand them and apply them repeatedly. An understanding of what these elements are will open up possibilities and create opportunities for you. An understanding of how each element works will help you apply it so that you can improvise given the unique characteristics of a specific situation and your own con- cerns. Versatility with many strategies enables you to be more successful in more varied situations and to make more varied statements. Understanding the principles of visual dynamics will help make your decision making pro- cess more informed, but it won’t make choices for you. Awareness is the key. Better awareness brings better choices. Better choices bring better results …”

Wired Magazine Digital Version – Now On iPad


This sets the standard for the future of magazines.
Wired magazine has released its iPad edition in the Apple iStore (converted by Adobe from Flash to Apple approved Objective-C).
The June iPad edition of Wired costs $4.99.
The App is a 527MB download.
It’s intended for ages 17 and up. (Note the terms of agreement when you download it.)
Chris Anderson, editor in chief of Wired, says this is what he has always dreamed of. “It has all of the visual impact of paper, enhanced by interactive elements like video and animated graphics.” “We can offer you a history of Mars landings that lets you explore the red planet yourself. We can take you inside Trent Reznor’s recording studio and let you listen to snippets of his work in progress. And we can show you exactly how Pixar rafted each frame of its new movie, Toy Story 3.”
Wired released a video showing off the features of the new digital magazine. (View above.)(The video is encoded in Adobe Flash thus unplayable on the iPad.)
Apple Insider has more on the inside story on how Wired was impacted by Apple’s decision not to support Adobe’s Flash.
Find more on the App and it’s features on Wired.com.
