Abandon auto settings and take full control of your Nikon with our Manual on Manual. That’s not all you’ll learn this issue: as ever, we’ve got eight great tutorials, all with video. The topics covered range from creating custom Picture Controls and choosing the correct lenses to capture landscapes just the way you want them to setting up a fashion shoot at home. Software tutorials include making perfect cutouts using Elements’ powerful Refine Edge tool and the six basic adjustments you’ll want to make to every image in Lightroom.
If you’re looking for inspiration from the professionals, this issue’s Apprentice gets a masterclass in photographing puffins and other seabirds from Chris Gomersall. Action and lifestyle photographer Ross Woodhall explains how a chance meeting in a pub set him on his way to becoming one of the world’s leading snow sports photographers, and how he’s diversified his subjects in recent years, while the doyen of cricket photographers, Patrick Eagar, shares his best shot from a lifetime watching the stumps. And if you’ve ever wondered what camera gear a CSI uses, Avon and Somerset Constabulary reveal all.
Don’t buy a telephoto zoom lens without reading our group test of budget options - we could help you save lots of money! We also review six A3 and A3+ printers, assessing their output from a photographer’s point of view, and look at the latest Nikon-fit kit.
All this plus inspirational photos, real-life reader stories and much more in issue 35 of N-Photo.
