20th March 2009 – Tom Mackie Images a leader in photography and photographic training is pleased to introduce to its training and workshop portfolio a new landscape and architectural event taking place in Andalucia, Spain on 19th – 26th May 2009.

This unique event will give you the opportunity to learn from Tom in a very small team whilst shooting amazing images of Andalucia’s famous whitewashed villages with its winding streets lined with fascinating houses full of character. The group will spend time in Olvera which not only boasts fantastic photo opportunities as there is an amazing castle and cathedral within but the area also provides magnificent views of surrounding hilltop villages.

During the event the group will spend time with Tom visiting Ronda with its splendid Roman and Moorish architecture and Casares with its cliff-hugging buildings as well as having plenty of opportunity for shooting around the Plaza de Espana – one of Seville’s most famous buildings and the epitome of the Moorish Revival in Spanish architecture.

The Plaza is a huge half-circle with buildings that run continually around the edge and which are accessible by the moat or by the numerous beautiful bridges. There is also the central fountain, tiled alcoves, boats that drift around the moat and so much more to wet your photographic appetite.

Tom’s photographic style and creative approach to landscapes and architecture has given him one of the strongest followings around the globe. He will share the secrets to his success and show you how to keep your creative-eye looking for those unique shots that he achieves time after time. He will share with you his understanding of the quality of light and all other aspects that are fundamentally important to his success.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
