The Photo Annual

Introducing… Rf’s Photo Annual! The November Photo Annual issue hosts the gallery of winners from this year’s competition, including this cover photo taken by first place winner photographer Oli Sansom, of fellow photographer Dan O’Day and Andrea Rose at a music rehearsal warehouse in Melbourne, Australia, on film that expired 60 years ago. “Naturally, a lot of the strongest images, including this one, happened in the last half hour of the second day of the shoot,” Sansom says of the shot.

The November issue also includes the 2016 Holiday Gift Guide, where you’ll find over 20 pages of the hottest new and most gift-worthy photo gear and accessories from the editors of Rangefinder, PDN and DPReview. Plus, you’ll find the latest scoop on photography trends impacting portrait sessions, engagements, event photography and more. We did some digging to find out how you can benefit from Instagram Stories, the photo-sharing app’s latest and most notable update, and we took a look at the latest gear impacting the industry too. Don’t miss the Rf team’s favorite photos of the year in this issue as well, plus lighting tips and setup ideas from lighting master Tony Corbell, and an insightful interview with photographer Davis Ayer, who creates edgy and mind-bending portraits using some unexpected alternative processes.
