Looking to give your photography a quick boost? We’ve got 83 quick and easy tips that will give your images a lift, whatever you like to shoot. For an in-depth masterclass, this issue’s Apprentice spends a day taking business portraits with a pro photographer. We’ve also got eight tutorials complete with streaming video, including an introduction to Nikon’s new NX-D RAW conversion and processing software, six ways to use a window as a light source for portraits, and how to use a hide and take great shots of shy garden birds. If you’ve ever wondered when and how to use Picture Controls, this issue’s Nikopedia explains how they work and how to make them work for you.
 
We’ve got inspirational images from top Nikon-using photographers in Lightbox, while fellow Nikon users share their enthusiasms in our reader stories. Denis Thorpe, former press photographer for The Guardian, picks his favourite shot from his career – one of the Ribblehead Viaduct, which captured a political mood in the 1980s, and leading nature photographer Sandra Bartocha shares her Impressionistic images and talks about her work.
 
All those lessons and inspirational stories are nothing without the right kit. This issue we review the D4s, Nikon’s latest pro-spec D-SLR, and look at eight super-wide-angle zoom lenses for DX-format Nikon cameras. We also look at geared tripod heads for shooting panoramas and all the latest new gear. Chef-turned-food-photographer Francesco Tonelli reveals the kit he uses to capture his mouthwatering images.
