We have a lovely surprise for you this month, an interview with two superb large format landscape photographers, Georg Popp and Vereva Popp-Hackner. Verena and Georg are married with two children, professional landscape photographers since 1997 and they are based in Vienna, Austria. You can find the interview on page 64.
Also, don’t miss our other feature on page 92. Peter Cairns takes us on a trip up north high up at the Arctic Circle, where twilight and blue hues in the air provide material for unbelievably stunning imagery; a beautiful trip to the Lofoten Islands.
On the gear test front, Mark Bauer takes a trip down the digital lane and examines the Hasselblad H5D. It has a much larger than a 35mm sensor and its dynamic range is supposedly better. The question is: does size really matter? You can find the review on page 114.
I also need to mention that we have created a new section on the website named POTW (photo of the week). Anyone can take part in this feature and the best picture of the week wins... well, the LPM title of POTW, is this not enough?
