LANDSCAPE

PHOTOGRAPHY


9

A stunning sunrise. Majestic mountains. Rushing rivers. Nature can be inspiring and photography is an excellent medium through which to capture the beauty of a landscape. Landscape photography can be a way to see the world in all its glory and show art through life. “Photography is more than a medium for factual communications for ideas. It is a creative art.”

– Ansel Adams

TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY


17

Travel photography is about carrying your camera with you, sometimes without the intention of even using it, and being able to snap away at a moments notice. This all comes with time of course, and doesn’t just happen overnight, but thats where skills and ways of learning emerge. It’s about making a connection with your subject, in a way that a ‘holiday-maker’ may not. “Anything worth pursuing is going to require us to suffer, just a little bit.”

– Chris Burkard


12

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY


13

Telling stories really defines what street photography is. When looking at the images of a street photographer, you are also getting a look into their soul. Don’t only shoot with your eyes. Shoot with your heart. Put your soul behind your images and you will create images that not only inspire but touch the people you show them to. “It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera...they are made with the eye, heart, and head.”

– Henri Cartier-Bresson

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY


21

Portraitures are known to be some of the most inspiring pieces of art in the world. A quick photo of someone in a whichever setting can have a huge impact in the world of photography, as long as they have the vision. “Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.”

– Yousof Karsh


24

CONCEPTUAL PHOTOGRAPHY


25

Conceptual photography represent ideas, movements, moods, anything and everything that the photographer might want to include in the message of their photograph. Often, it seems unreal. Reality in the photos are distorted, and what you know as normal, is completely changed. It’s all about imagination, ideas, planning and and finally the creation of the image. “Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world.”

– Bruno Barbey

ZACH BOISJOLY

I'm originally from Miami, Florida but raised in Nashville, Tennessee. Just recently, I've re-located to New York to take on greater opportunities. At a young age I inadvertently exposed myself to photography through the dime a dozen Kodak disposable cameras you could pick up at a drug store. I still have drawers filled with those cam-eras that I've yet to get developed from years ago. As I got older, it snowballed into small cameras, iPhones and eventually many years later my first DSLR. Photography started as just a hobby for me and with time, it transformed into a passion. It is all about the beauty of the moment in time that you capture - a moment that is unable to ever be recreated. While drawing most of my inspiration just from the environment around me, Instagram is also a big source of inspiration. Being able to see so many artists' work at the tips of your fingers is very powerful. Photographers such as Van Styles and Tim McGurr aka 13th Witness, are always a solid sources of inspiration. Lately, I have been gravitating towards famous photographers outside the world of social media. Photographers such as Diane Arbus, Danny Clinch and Estevan Oriol have expanded my creativity.

MIKE FOX

My name is Mike Fox and I am a freelance photographer as well as the owner of The Fox Magazine. While still attending Western Kentucky University for Sociology, I am more focused than ever to inspire people to chase their dreams, whatever it may be. Photography started for me senior year of high school. It took being apart of the yearbook crew and being asked to take a few photos at a basketball game to really make me interested in creating images. Although it's been over S years ago, I vividly remember falling in love with photography that day. Since then, I've been blessed to travel to some of the most beautiful places in the world capturing different perspectives that may have otherwise not been seen. My inspiration comes directly from my childhood. Raised by a single mother, it taught me to overcome any challenge thrown at me. Family continues to be a huge inspiration for me. My primary goal now is to inspire others go after their dreams no matter what it may be. While still learning myself, The Fox Magazine is set out to be the primary source of inspiration across the globe.

THE FOX 5

54 DSLRs deliver a big step up in image quality from a compact camera, far more manual control and the ability to change lenses to tackle a huge variety of projects. It’s clear that the more features you want, the more you’ll pay, but do you actually need them? This article explores the best, but also cheapest, entry-level cameras on the market. Still offering impressive performance and image quality, these cameras have enough features to handle most assignments, especially if you’re still learning. Let’s shoot!

OLYMPUS TG-4 The Olympus Tough TG-4 adds RAW image capture and multiple fun shooting modes, helping it leap to the front of the pack when it comes to entry-level cameras. Imaging performance is solid for its class, but where this camera separates itself is through its fun-to-use shooting features and versatility. What we mean by versatility, this camera delivers the most bang for its buck. Not only does it have the ability to record 1080P video, capture images at

16MP resolution, but the TG-4’s ultra-bright high-speed F 2.0 lens captures light fast. It’s easy to nail blur-free shots as quick as the action happens, and shoot crisp, detailed images with minimal noise in low light with this camera. Plus, control the focus range of the background with the Aperture Priority Mode for amazing results. Not to mention it’s waterproof up to 50 feet and shockproof up to 20 feet!

NIKON D5500 The Nikon D5000 series has long been a good choice for photographers who wanted a very capable, compact DSLR that offer a higher level of enthusiast features than the D3000 series that sits below it. Nikon’s D5500 continues that trend, though the differences from the D5300 that came before it aren’t enormous.

Taking amazing pictures and sharing them have become easier than ever. The D5500 inherits a range of advanced imaging and creative technologies, and combines them with the convenience of a touch screen.


ENTRY-LEVEL CAMERAS

PENTAX K-50

Picture this; a camera that is amazingly mobile and sporty, now add a weather resistant construction that withstands the rain, exceptional imaging power even in the dark, high-speed continuous shooting to capture the once in a lifetime moments, and a large viewfinder image. That’s the Pentax K-50 and it takes you beyond the conventional boundaries of photography! The Pentax K-50’s control layout is very similar to its older brother, the K-30, although

the extreme styling of that camera has been replaced with a more traditional look and feel. The LCD screen has a very high resolution of 920K dots, wide viewing angle and it remains visible outdoors in all but the brightest of conditions. This makes it one of the better LCD screens that make photography and life much easier.

SONY A6000

The Alpha 6000 is a mirrorless 24-megapixel camera with a kit lens that has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24mm75mm. The camera includes an electronic viewfinder, which is extremely helpful when composing in bright light. The difference is that with an optical viewfinder you are essentially seeing what your eyes see, which can help in certain situations. While it takes a little bit to get used to this difference, we find it much more useful

CANON REBEL SL1 The epically designed 18-megapixel SL1 easily impresses with clear and crisp photos. The camera features high-speed, continuous shooting at 4 frames per second. When shooting video, the SL1 captures 1080p HD video in 30 frames per second or full 720p HD at 50 frames per second. Canon has also included manual exposure and focus control, live view features, and the ability to edit your clips on the camera itself.

51

It even takes video snapshots at 2, 4, or 8 seconds before combining them into a single video album. Its built-in attenuator also helps reduce audio clipping during recordings. Additionally, a simple finger gestures allow you to zoom in on photos, swipe through your photo library, or access and change control settings. A coating ensures the glare-free LCD screen will remain crystal clear despite the gesture controls.

for photography.. One of the biggest benefits of moving to a mirrorless camera system is simply how portable they are. The Sony A6000 weighs just 12.13oz and can easily fit in the palm of your hand. This versatility of this camera leaves it in our top list of entrylevel cameras.
