October’s One to One pro masterclass is a must-read for all shooters of scenic views – it’s a long-term landscape photography project with a difference. 

We go on location with Andrew Haggar in Cumbria, north-west England, to discover more about his MySqK project, which for the past six years has seen him capture images within the same grid square of a map. 

Find out how this approach could transform your landscape photography… as this pro tells us, great images can be captured in the most unassuming places.

Plus, we interview Andy Summers about his latest photo book. Perhaps best known as the guitarist in late 70s/ early 80s rock combo The Police, Summers is also a photographer of some distinction. 

His latest release is titled ’A Series of Glances’ – you can take a look at some of the photos that feature in it, all captured on Summers’ beloved Leicas, in our main interview, from page 118.

Turning to Lightroom, we have a fix for flat-looking autumn images (above). Discover how to deploy Lightroom’s HSL tools to bring them back to life with intense red, orange and yellow hues. 

Completing the tutorials in our editing section, Get the Look will teach you four techniques for using the Layer visibility tools in Photoshop to progressively build a particular look. 

To complement all our tutorials, we’ve bundled 16 software extras to improve your editing workflows: 10 Photoshop brushes, two autumn presets for Lightroom, and four Photoshop layer visibility Actions.

October’s camera reviews lead on the Sony A6700. Having waited four years to update its popular A6600 compact, will the improvements help Sony to reclaim the APS-C crown in a very competitive field?

Also this month, we test two new optics. At £11,500/$9,500, the Canon RF 100-300mm F2.8L IS USM is not something for buyers on a budget… but does its performance justify the price tag? Find out what happened when we gave it a real-world test.

And at the other end of the price spectrum, the Irix 150mm Macro F2.8 Dragonfly is now available in Sony E-mount fit. We loved the DSLR version, so what do we make of this new iteration for mirrorless? Turn to page 104.

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.
