Pro Profile - Connor Stefanison

Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, he grew up around nature, and was interested in mountain biking. He encountered photography at a young age, and would use his camera to just experiment in the wilderness. This soon turned into a serious hobby, and he took it up professionally when he was 23. After a few wins in prestigious contests at a young age, he kickstarted his career, and is today one of the well-known names in wildlife photography. His work has been featured in numerous publications including Outdoor Photography, Canadian Geographic, Canadian Camera Magazine, Wild Planet Photography Magazine, British Columbia Magazine, Audubon Magazine, as well as various books and newspapers. This month we go on a journey into the wilderness with Connor Stefanison, who tells us about his work and his life as a wildlife photographer.

Asian Photography Awards 2018

Over the years, Asian Photography Awards have come a long way and become an important event in the industry’s calendar, since the kickstart in 1999. Being one of the most awaited and prestigious awards in this industry, the idea is to recognise and appreciate the excellence of the photography industry and its individuals who either work behind the cameras or simply create them! With an objective to honour, not only the veterans, but also new talent, best products and services of the industry, Asian Photography Awards are divided in the Product Category and Most Influential Person in Photography (MIPP) category, featuring different set of parameters for judgement in each category. This year, the Asian Photography Awards were held at the The Fern on Wednesday, 10th January 2018. This edition of awards saw Basab Paul, CMD, Octaga Green as the Chief Guest. The ceremony was graced by significant people from the photography fraternity including manufacturers and renowned photographers.

Symmetry in compositions

What is a symmetry. In easy terms symmetry is when an object, image or scene can be divided into two parts (from the center vertically or horizontally) and each part of the image would look like a mirror reflection of the other. Symmetry can also be defined as perfect halves of any object or image. To get into symmetrical compositions you will have to understand that only certain situations can turn out to be symmetrical.

Making the best of lenses you own

Often beginners and amateur photographers will crib about not having a good lens or a better camera body, blaming the equipment for their not so great images. However, we all know that it is not always true. Whether you are a absolute beginner or a seasoned hobbyist, you have equal opportunities to take the images. Not to mention the numerous possibilities which hide around a location or a setting and how we miss those views and blame the equipment later. This has been a reason for newbies to buy additional lenses and equipment without thinking of the final output which will show no changes unless you master the art of using your own lenses to its maximum efficiency.
