As I write this we’re back in the throes of a UK-wide lockdown, and the chances of restrictions being lifted anytime soon look increasingly remote. So where does that leave us photographers? Much of our hobby is a solitary pursuit, so why not use this enforced isolation to rekindle your creativity? We show you how to not just take pictures but make pictures in our lead feature, and all during your daily allotted exercise.
This issue’s Apprentice gets around the issue of social distancing by taking tuition from his fine art photographer other-half, and learns to transform his landscape shots into stunning painterly images.
We bring you our full review of the Z 7II, the update to Nikon’s flagship mirrorless, and ask if enough has been done to finally persuade you to make the move to mirror-free photography?
If you’re sticking with your DSLR, then this issue’s Big Test picks out the best-buy F-mount zooms for DX and FX Nikons. Also in our Gear section, we demystify card readers and help you pick the best for you.
Plus we have our usual mix of inspirational interviews, cracking columnists and tutorials to try at home. And as an added bonus, we're giving away The Nikon Annual 2021 ebook edition – a compendium of the very best bits of N-Photo over the past year or so.
N-Photo is 100% Nikon-devoted, and 100% editorially independent. If you're a Nikon owner and want to improve your images, get the best buying advice and reviews, see some of the world's best Nikon photography, N-Photo is the title for you. Get a free VEO Range 38NV Bag when you subscribe (UK only).
