With its versatility and accessibility, natural light has the power to transform any scene – whether indoors or outdoors. And the best part? You don't need expensive equipment to use it effectively. Natural light can imbue your photos with emotion and mood, bringing your images to life and telling a powerful story.

Working with natural light can be a daunting task. From p36, we show you what's possible with this source. With the guidance of pro photographers Ryszard Lomnicki and Chloe Price, you'll explore the facets and effects of natural light and learn how to use it expertly in your images - from landscapes to portraits and more.

Our Technique Editor, Kim Bunermann, had an insightful conversation with the renowned photographer, discussing his past and present work -  from his early inspirations, recent exhibitions, and his latest book "A Series of Glances", published by teNeues Publishers.

Without a doubt, films possess the unique capability to tell a story with much greater ease than still photographs, all thanks to their moving images. The creation of storytelling and atmosphere in just one shot is an art in itself - By adapting cinematic techniques, photographs convey much more than just a reflection of reality.

In the detailed tutorial on shooting and editing, Editor Peter Fenech shows how to harness the power of shadows and pools of light. With this step-by-step guidance, you'll achieve the stylized cinematic look of classic crime dramas.

On course for success?
