The days are getting that little bit longer, the weather that little bit more clement… spring has most definitely sprung! The months ahead promise a plethora of opportunities to get outdoors with your Nikon, aided by the expectation of lockdown easing, and with that in mind Ross Hoddinott shares his top spring nature shooting advice in our lead feature.
Of course, this issue has been put together under firm pandemic restrictions, so our Apprentice is a little different: Instagrammer Louise Carey goes solo to show how you can take terrific self-portraits with a few outfit changes, props, a tripod and the self-timer mode.
We’re also delighted to announce the return of our sorely missed Nikopedia section, where you’ll learn everything there is to know about autofocus. We also explain how to use the brilliant Capture One Express for Nikon – and download this software for free!
In our Big Test, we put eight fast, wide-angle primes and zooms that are ideal for astro through their paces, give the Nikon 50mm f/1.2 S the review treatment, and help you buy a photo-editing monitor.
Plus we have our usual mix of inspirational interviews, cracking columnists and tutorials to try at home. And as an added bonus, we're giving away Teach Yourself Seasonal Photography ebook edition – a fantastic guide to encourage you to get out with your Nikon, whatever the time of year.
