Photo Active gets things under way, with seven great projects you can shoot indoors, plus more inspiration besides.
Remember that if you can't get to the shops to buy a copy, then you can buy Digital Camera online.
Plus, we're also running a lockdown-friendly five issues for £5/$5/€5 promotion. Don't delay – subscribe today!
Our new Stay at Home section follows on and will walk you through some of the photographic housekeeping you’ve been meaning to do for ages – if only you had the time.
Now you probably do, so this selection of lockdown-friendly jobs includes scanning photo prints with a camera, an introduction to image cataloguing, and a new four-part series on how to build a photography website.
This month’s Shoot Sharper Shots cover feature is an essential guide to getting tack-sharp images every time, whether you shoot wildlife, nature or action.

As always in Digital Camera, there’s plenty of inspiration to savour.
Our Hotshots gallery showcases our highlights from the 2020 Zeiss Photography Award, while leading pro Craig McDean talks about fusing fast cars and fashion for his forthcoming photo book, in our seven-page Q&A interview.
Image editing is something that can safely be undertaken in lockdown, of course, so we’ve expanded the range of our coverage.
Alongside Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, you can now immerse yourself in a Serif Affinity Photo tutorial – the first of a new series.
