A Happy New Year to all our readers. Our February 2020 issue features a 14-page masterclass on how to take food photography beyond smartphone snaps – so next time you’re faced with some fabulous fare, you’ll be able to shoot it like a pro.

Food photography may not be everyone’s go-to subject, of course, but it’s a great way to practise composition and nail lighting setups – plus it’s a tasty subject to eat once you've packed your camera away. 

If you’d rather look at a different menu, though, then our Photo Active section offers 10 all-new photo projects, including winter wildlife and macro ice shots. 

Further inspiration can be found in One to One, where we go behind the scenes of Amy Lathrope-Reid’s equine photography practice, and in this month’s Q&A interview, where Simon Roberts details his distinctive take on landscapes – and politics.

Niall is the editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and has been shooting on interchangeable lens cameras for over 20 years, and on various point-and-shoot models for years before that. 

Working alongside professional photographers for many years as a jobbing journalist gave Niall the curiosity to also start working on the other side of the lens. These days his favored shooting subjects include wildlife, travel and street photography, and he also enjoys dabbling with studio still life. 

On the site you will see him writing photographer profiles, asking questions for Q&As and interviews, reporting on the latest and most noteworthy photography competitions, and sharing his knowledge on website building.
