I have noticed that function photographers are generally interested in portraits or photographing models, but turn a blind eye to tabletops. They seem to pose a question, «What’s the use?» They crib that the market is competitive, but at the same time they fail to think ‘broadly, on how to deliver or present their pictures in a different way to make a mark of their own.

Through this write-up I shall deal with this

Live Green and prosper…

There are plenty of things that unite us all as guitar players, and there are many times when the differences between us (technical ability, say, or musical preferences) are easy to identify, explain and potentially eliminate. But when it comes to notions of ‘charisma’, ‘mystery’ and ‘soul’, it becomes a tricky business. Cue this month’s cover story on the great Peter Green and his legendary Gibson Les Paul.

Equipment: Canon EOS700D with Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens

Shooting images for covers is always a privilege, but brings with it certain unique challenges and constraints.

Air War on the Edge

Author: Bill Norton

Details: Midland Countries, ISBN 1 85780 088 5, 432pp, illus, hbk, £50.00

WHEN I saw the by-line ‘A history of the Israel Air Force and its aircraft since 1947’ on the sleeve of the cover, I was intrigued to see just how comprehensive this account would be.

Looking at the
