This month our lead feature is all about getting out of the studio and shooting environmental portraits. Learn to control colour for natural skin tones, manage different types of outdoor lighting and work with natural backgrounds, for balanced compositions. Plus, we discuss how to work with indoor ambient light. If you don’t have a studio this feature is for you - if you do have studio lights, you never know when your subject will need to be shot on-location. Don’t miss it!

Once you’re done reading that, take a look at our guide to one of the hottest content topics today - video. Motion content is undeniably critical for staying relevant in the industry today, but it can be an intimidating switch. Look no further! Our Technique Editor Kim Bunermann explains how you already have the essential skills to broaden your portfolio and guides you through the process of making this exciting jump.
