‘Why are you taking this photograph?’ asks Nigel Forster, the pro landscape photographer who penned this issue’s lead feature. By asking yourself this most basic question, you’ll ensure the images you shoot convey the emotions that made you want to press the shutter button in the first place. It’s a fascinating read and guaranteed to help you craft carefully considered compositions every single time.
And that’s not all. Also in this month’s N-Photo:
Our Apprentice wanted to learn to take better photos of her three adorable Dalmatians, so we enlisted dog photographer Kingsley Singleton to help her take pet portraits to be proud of.
We speak with commercial photographer and master of social media Alex Stead, who tells us how he dropped out of his photography degree course at uni to pursue his dreams, shooting campaigns for some of the world's biggest brands.
In our Big Test, we help you decide which Nikon is right for you, helping you make the choice between crop-sensor and full-frame, DSLR and mirrorless. We also try out six monopods for holding hefty lenses and check out DxO Nik Collection 2 – which now includes its own photo-editor, along with the celebrated plug-ins.
Over in our Skills section, we’ll show you how to shoot everything from ‘exploding’ food photos to portraits with motion blur, get creative with a lens ball, hand-colour mono images – and lots more!
This issue also comes with a bonus Teach Yourself Wildlife Photography ebook, packed with advice for getting your best-ever shots of all creatures great and small.
