Citybreak photography

Learn how to capture images of urban environments, both foreign and familiar, which tell a story of the place (Image credit: Future)

The last 18 months has proven a challenge for photographers creatively. We haven't been able to travel far and for those of us who like exploring exotic places it has been tricky to stay inspired.

With our feature this issue however, we hope to prove that whether you catch a seven hour flight or take a ten minute train journey, city locations have something to offer. Explore how to use colour, perspective, lighting and considered composition to  find the story in any city. We help you decide which kit you really need to take with you and how to use this to capture fascinating details many others would miss. 

Flower Power

Just like with cities, flowers are brilliant subjects for photographers to study. One of the best aspects is that you don't need to go far, indeed you don't even need to leave your home, to shoot gorgeous flower portraits. 

In this feature pro photographer Andy Small is on hand with expert guidance. Learn to work with colour interactions, subject shape and form and composition. Manage backgrounds, natural and studio lighting, lens choices and both interior and exterior shooting conditions. Turn flowers into art with Andy's tips!

Shoot edgy flash fashion portraits

Many of the best location fashion images use a mix of lighting sources. You have the ambient lighting, which may be the reason for choosing the location in the first place, and then you have a flash. While this may seem complex, in reality your setup can be kept pretty straightforward. In our creative project pages experienced pro shooter Alistair Campbell explains how to successfully blend natural and flash light and demonstrates why simple is often best.
