Issue Cover

Photo Life  |  December-January 2013  

Bryan Adams—Exposed
The legendary rock star has released his first comprehensive monograph entitled Exposed. Published by Steidl, this retrospective features portraits of friends and ­colleagues in the entertainment, fashion and art community. We asked him to share his thoughts on photography and this particular publishing experience.
Spontaneous and Reactive Photography
The process in which photographers are required to work in unpredictable and continuously changing situations calls for a relatively specific approach. While there are no definitive procedures for success, capturing that critical moment requires the photographer to have mastered a few prerequisites.
Chasing the Aurora on Great Slave Lake
Photographer Ben Chase shares about his 2400-km trip from his home in northern Idaho through Jasper to the Yellowknife/Hay River region of Great Slave Lake to shoot the aurora borealis.
Frozen Waters
Though white, flat and seemingly featureless, the frozen surface of Lake Ontario is one of Christoph’s favourite locations to photograph and explore. The ­interplay between ice protrusions and light; the rapidly changing surface resulting from freeze/thaw cycles, rain and snow; and the myriad of textures and patterns make for a fascinating photographic project.

Great Flash Secret #3: Take It Off Your Camera!
What is the worst place for a flash? On top of your camera! In this ­introduction to using simple electronic flash units, Michael explains how making sure the light is not in line with the lens can drastically improve your images.
