“Spend on cameras, invest in lenses…” is how the saying goes. But are you really getting the most from your glass?
That’s what we’re focusing on in this month’s cover feature, with 12 pages of expert advice and insights for getting the optimum quality from your trusty optics.
Other highlights in June’s Digital Camera
And we’ve got plenty of potential subjects to photograph – just head straight over to Photo Active and Stay at Home for another set of projects to immerse yourself in.
Other visual treats await in Hotshots, with our highlights from the Royal Horticultural Society’s 2021 photo contest, and Pro in Focus, where we catch up with leading photojournalist Brent Stirton.
Our latest Camera College continues, with an in-depth tutorial on how to get creative with multiple exposures.
Follow along with the tutorials then enter your best shot in the photo challenge, where one lucky reader can win a copy of Affinity Photo worth £23.99/$25.
Plus, in this month’s interview, Alok Sinha takes us behind the scenes of his ‘Gas and Glamour’ book.
This month’s bonus digital gift is a Lightbeam Brush Kit for Photoshop CC, which will allow you to add attractive shafts of light to images in just a few seconds.
And as always, there’s an appealing selection of image editing tutorials to dive into, with more creative techniques for Camera Raw, Lightroom and Photoshop.
June’s lead camera review is the Fujifilm X-E4, a rangefinder-style mirrorless ideal for travel photography; plus, we take the DJI Air 2S camera drone out for a fly.
Street photography lenses come under scrutiny in our group test, while two new fast primes – the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM and Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN Art – are put through our exacting lab tests.
