Well, the latest issues of my long living baby, Total Image, will be out soon. It is also known as Better Pictures for Camera House and PhotoPlus for the PhotoPlus group of stores. For its entire life, it has been Australia's highest circulation photography magazine and being its publisher and editor has been a wonderful privilege.In this issue, Darran Leal discusses the principles of using telephoto lenses. His fabulous image graces the cover of Total Image as seen above. Former model and Neighbours actor turned photographer (and now friend!) Dan Paris reveals his wonderful journey from landscape photographer to people photographer. It is his cute image of two playful aboriginal girls that graces our Better Pictures cover. My image of an elderly Indian gentlemen graces the PhotoPlus cover. My long time friend and fellow light lover, Ian Rolfe, tells us to get in touch with our feelings in order to really see the world around us. Corel Paint Shop Pro guru, Mario Nicotera shows us how to remove distracting backgrounds in our pictures.We also look at the use of lenses for creative imaging and discuss depth of field...and much much more!
