    • General Blog

      Better Photography magazine's blog is written mainly by its editor and publisher, Peter Eastway. Here you'll find a wealth of comments, ideas and, hopefully, you'll like some of the photographs as well. If a blog doesn't sit neatly into one of the other categories, then generally you'll find it here!

    • Antarctica Trip 2009

      In November 2009, Peter Eastway visited the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island and Antarctica on a Peregrine Polar Expedition. The following blog notes were written on location, but were posted in early December 2009 upon his return - internet connection wasn't available on the high seas!

    • Iceland

      In May 2012, Peter Eastway was lucky enough to be on a PODAS to Iceland – a Phase One Digital Artist Series trip spearheaded by Phase One’s Kevin Raber. Peter accompanied Steve Gosling from the UK and Daniel Bergmann was the local photographer and guide. In addition, Drew Altdoerffer from Phase One in Denmark came along for technical support. Technical support? All of the attendees were given a Phase One medium format output to play with for the week and so if there were any technical issues, Drew would solve them!

    • Bhutan

      Bhutan is tucked away below the Himalayas, between China and India, and to the east of Nepal. A tiny kingdom which only recently became a democracy, it’s a country where you are intentionally allowed to step back in time. In fact, the balance between modern culture and religious tradition is being carefully managed and this is great for photography and photographers. Peter Eastway visited Bhutan with Robert van Koesveld and Libby Lloyd, authors of the book Bhutan Heartland, in 2012.

    • Adventures In Oz

      The Adventures in Oz Photographic Counsel adventure began in Alice Springs. Tony Hewitt and I met the group at the airport. Lorri and Malik were our two Americans, winners of the Nik Software Sweepstakes competition held throughout Europe and the USA. They joined Australian photographers Phillipa, Felix, Alan, Mark, Frank and Warwick. Along with Dave our guide, driver and camp maker, we bundled ourselves into a specialised four-wheel drive vehicle and were soon bouncing along a dirt track leading to our first destination, Rainbow Valley.

    • Karijini 2013

      Karijini National Park in the Pilbara region of Western Australia is a hidden gem. If you're a photographer, there are few places in Australia that are as exciting, mesmerising and easy to photograph. Yes, you will need a basic level of fitness to climb down into some of the gorges, but others are very accessible and no less pretty.

      The following blog posts are from the 2013 Karijini Photography Workshop presented by Christian Fletcher, Tony Hewitt and Peter Eastway.

      Please feel free to browse the articles and view the movies in this Sample Landscape Photography MasterClass. For more information about the MasterClass, click on the About The Better Photography MasterClasses under the MasterClass link at the top of the page. Remember, when you join the MasterClass, you have a lifetime subscription.

      FINE ART: Pilbara Storm is a photograph of an amazing storm shot during the wet season in Australia's north-west. The movie shows a series of images taken in the area, then discusses how the landscape was finessed in Photoshop.

      CRITIQUE: MasterClass members submit images to Peter Eastway and a selection of image is made each month to be critiqued. The feedback is anonymous. This movie provides 'real world' examples and shows how to deal with issues and think about landscapes in different ways.

      KNOWLEDGE: What aperture is best for landscapes. Many people will suggest the smallest aperture gives the greatest depth-of-field, but does it produce the sharpest images?

      POST-PRODUCTION: Lightening and darkening your images using a 50% grey layer in soft light mode with a brush has never been easier - once you set it up. This movie shows you one of the techniques Peter Eastway employs.

      JOURNEY: An article discussing a location to consider for future landscape photography expeditions. This article covers central Italy.

      ACUMEN: Everyone would like to sell a photo or two! If you do, you want to be sure your photograph is going to last, so what makes an archival photograph?

In theory, this is where you start, but the MasterClass is completely modular, so you can move around from class to class as you wish. For instance, if you want to improve your Photoshop skills, you might begin by viewing all the Post-Production movies. How you access the material is completely up to you!

      CRITIQUE: MasterClass members submit images to Peter Eastway and a selection of image is made each month to be critiqued. The feedback is anonymous. This movie provides 'real world' examples and shows how to deal with issues and think about landscapes in different ways.

      KNOWLEDGE: What sort of camera do you need to take great landscape photographs? This article discusses the merits of different camera systems and how to get the best from them.

      POST-PRODUCTION: Okay, so once you have captured your landscape photograph with your camera, how do you process the raw file for the best results? This movie shows you some of the techniques Peter Eastway employs.

      JOURNEY: An article discussing a location to consider for future landscape photography expeditions. This article covers Patagonia.

      ACUMEN: Everyone would like to sell a photo or two! In this article, we discuss the various potential markets for landscape photography.

    • The New Tradition: Landscapes

      The New Tradition is a book in production outlining Peter Eastway's approach to landscape photography. It begins with his earlier work in the darkroom and follows his transition into Photoshop and digital techniques. His argument? That with Photoshop we have a new tradition in landscape photography. While lovers and stalwarts of the Ansel Adams approach should never change, in time a new generation will look back on photographers at the turn of the century and their approach to landscape photography. Hopefully it will share a similar acknowledgement for being creative and inspirational, long after the debate about 'Is it real' is forgotten.
