We’re starting to see the first tentative steps to ease the lockdown, enabling photographers to head out into the solitude of the countryside to pursue their passion. And this issue’s lead feature is on close-up photography of natural subjects that you shouldn’t have to stray too far to find – and may even be able to shoot from your very own garden – as macro maestro Ross Hoddinott demonstrates how to get up close and personal with flora and fauna to truly capture the majesty of nature.

In a similar vein, this issue’s Big Test is on lenses for wildlife photography – garden birds, in particular – and we check out a selection of telephoto and super-tele zooms, stretching from 50-250mm all the way up to the 150-600mm range.

Also in our Gear section we review the Irix 45mm f/1.4 Dragonfly standard prime lens, and try six mics for those dabbling with their Nikon’s vlogging capabilities.  

We revisit four past Apprentices for a refresher on how to shoot family portraits, with an emphasis on natural-looking photos of the kids.  

In our Nikon Skills sections we have a variety of projects, including how to print your pictures, create a bokeh disc and knock up a DIY soft-focus filter, along with digital darkroom tutorials on turning photos into paintings and restoring old prints.  

We’re also giving away four photo-editing ebooks, as well as the full versions of Aurora HDR 2018 and Photolemur 3 photo software.
