Image In Use: Stern VIEW

by on Mar.07, 2012, under Photography

Please forgive me one more personal trumpet-blowing but this is one I’m rather delighted with and really want to share. I mentioned that my Hamilton Pool images have been doing well recently and here’s the most prestigious publication to date. One of my shots features on the cover and as a two-page spread in the February 2012 issue of Germany’s “Stern VIEW” magazine. Stern is a weekly news magazine and VIEW is its monthly sister publication devoted to showing “the best pictures of the month”. It’s an 11″x17″, 148 page, full colour publication full of incredible images from around the world and I’m absolutely delighted that they picked on of my pictures to include.

When they approached me to ask about publication, I offered to produce a new, more realistic version of the image they had found on Flickr (which was a somewhat hyperreal HDR). I went back to look at the original brackets I had shot and discovered, to my horror, that I had shot them in Program mode and that the aperture varied with each shot! Thankfully, I could still use them to create a usable image but this was a surprise since I’ve never knowingly used Program mode. I guess I wasn’t paying much attention that day though, looking on the bright side, it gives me a great excuse to head back out to Hamilton Pool as soon as the leaves are on the trees so that I can correct the error.
