It is possible to do almost anything in software these days, but sometimes the old ways are the best! Not every filter effect can be simulated in Photoshop, Affinity or Capture and this when hardware filters shine.

In our feature this issue we take a look at all of the main filter types no pro shooter should find themselves without. From ND grads and polarizers, to the more niche stripe filters and soft focus models, we examine and demystify all of the main types, explaining how to get more from each, for high-end images. Find all of this great advice starting on page 22 of the magazine.

Black and White photography remains as popular as ever, but learning to shoot and edit for the maximum depth and texture can be a lengthy process and takes plenty of practise. In our creative pro project this issue we join Helen Trust, who shoots a wonderful study of the New York skyline and explains how best to capture exposure and then convert to beautiful mono.
