Our Stay at Home section covers more photographic housekeeping that’s crying out to be done during lockdown.
Discover how to produce perfect photo prints at home, how to choose a photo sharing site, and the best home photography kit (eg scanner, printer, computer, display and more) to invest in.
Many photographers would have started out with a 50mm prime lens married to an SLR camera, so this month’s feature celebrates this flexible optic that can handle most subjects you’re likely to want to shoot.
Read our expert advice on photographing landscapes, macro, portraits and more with a lens that should always be in your camera bag.
June’s Hotshots gallery features our top picks from All-About-Photo.com’s ‘The Mind’s Eye’ Awards 2020, while in our seven-page Q&A interview documentary photographer Marc Newton takes us behind the scenes of ‘The British Boot Sale’, a five-year project that explores our throwaway culture.
Image editing is lockdown-friendly, of course, so this month there are plenty of expert tutorials to get stuck into. Learn how to sharpen images in Lightroom, retouch portraits in Photoshop, and edit raw files in Serif Affinity Photo.
This section is also where you can find out how to download and use Skylum AirMagic, a new image editor that can optimise your camera drone photographs in a matter of seconds – it's this issue's software gift.
This month’s main camera review is the Canon EOS Ra, a full-frame mirrorless designed for astrophotography. Another model optimised for one style of photography is the Leica M10 Monochrom – but does it justify its £7,250 price tag?
We also test lenses including the Panasonic Lumix S Pro 70-200mm f/4 and the Irix 45mm f/1.4, while our group test reveals the best glass for photographing garden birds.
