Winter is coming. And while that’s the cue for most folks to crank up the central heating, draw the curtains and sup on a cup of cocoa, it sees wildlife photographer Andrew Mason wrapping up warm and heading out into the elements. He shares 25 tips for stunning shots of animals in the harshest – but arguably most photogenic – season of them all.
But it was the warmth of the studio that was certainly favoured by our apprentice as he learned to capture images of splishes and splashes far faster that the blink of an eye, courtesy of pro photographer Iain Afshar’s high-speed flash workshop.
It’s also the time for our annual Gear of the Year awards, where we reflect on the very best kit that’s passed through our labs over the past 12 months. And with the January sales just around the corner, it could be the perfect time to pick your next photographic purchase. We also bring you the N-Photo verdict on Nikon’s stunning ‘Plena’ portrait lens, which quite possibly boasts the most beautiful bokeh ever seen.
Marine photographer Henley Spiers tells how he got bitten by the underwater bug in this issue’s N-Photo interview. And Michel Haddi explains how he came to photograph legendary rap artist Tupac in the prime of his tragically all-too-short life.
Finally, our seasonal projects selection includes astro, festive food photos, winter scenes and last-minute greetings cards to hone your photography skills.
