Landscape photography lovers will be amazed by some of the incredible images in this month’s Hotshots gallery. 

The Canarian Photo Awards aims to promote the best of Spanish and international landscape photography, and judging from the strength of the entries in this inaugural year, we think this competition will become a fixture on the photo calendar.

This month’s photographer interviews have a documentary flavour. Sebastian Bruno is an Argentinian photographer based in Wales. His long-form project about the Abertillery Dynamic freesheet has just been published in book form – we find out more about it in Behind the Lens from page 88.  

Our main interview has another connection to Wales: with his career retrospective having just gone on sale, the Magnum legend David Hurn looks back on seven decades of taking non-fiction pictures.

August’s Practical Photoshop section brings you more in-depth tutorials showcasing some of the latest features in Lightroom, Photoshop and Camera Raw. 

Tool School (pictured above) focuses on the new Remove tool in Photoshop. As the name suggests, if you want to remove something from a photo, then just paint over the offending details and it’ll be gone in a second. We have the lowdown on how to get the most from this useful new feature.

Get the Look (above) will interest landscape photographers looking for some proven techniques to tease more from their scenic captures. 

James Abbott is on hand with four non-destructive Photoshop edits that will bring the best out of skies, enhance detail or apply subtle blur. 

And for users of Lightroom Classic, Fundamentals shows you how to use the tone curve and masking features to make pleasing shallow focus portrait edits. 

Practical Photoshop concludes with a bespoke batch of 17 actions and presets to speed up your image editing workflows in Camera Raw, Photoshop and Lightroom.

August’s camera and kit reviews lead on the Canon EOS R100. Designed to tempt smartphone shooters over to the brand’s EOS R mirrorless ecosystem, does this affordable 24.1MP APS-C do enough to seal the deal?

Another new APS-C camera launch is the Fujifilm X-S20, which builds on the specifications of its predecessor by adding improved battery life, and a dedicated vlogging mode – de rigeur for today's content creators.

Also this month, a pair of new lenses comes under scrutiny in our lab: the Sigma 23mm F1.4 DC DN and the Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD

But Kit Zone isn’t just about cameras and lenses: other reviews in the August issue include Mylio Photos+ software and Lightroom 2023, the cloud-based version of Adobe’s wildly popular desktop image editor.
