Practical Photography Feb 2012

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 5 January 2012 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

A few months ago I was lucky enough to be asked by Practical Photography magazine here in the UK to be a contributing writer for the February 2012 edition of the magazine - it's on sale now.

Practical Photography have a regular monthly feature called the "Portfolio MOT" which is a two page critique of a readers images - in this case it was 3 b&w images by a very talented photographer from the north east called Ritchie Coatsworth with some background text from him on how he went about taking the photos and where he finds his photographic inspiration. I then had space for about 500 words of my own text with an accompanying modified photo which formed the actual critique on Ritchie's photos - it was a real privilege.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

For purchasing high quality archival prints of any of these photos you can send me an email by clicking here or by going to my website Ian Bramham - Fine Art Photography where prices are listed in the gallery sections under each individual photo.
