Photography is all about recording the light that strikes your camera’s sensor, so it makes sense to ensure that the quality of illumination is sublime in the first place. To that end, outdoors photographer Nigel Forster explains how to anticipate great light in this issue’s lead feature, and how you can make the most of it when the conditions aren’t so hot.
And that’s not all. Also in this month’s N-Photo:
Our Apprentice learns to make their own light for a family portrait shoot in the studio and outdoors, complete with toddlers and pets.
Most likely, you bought your Nikon with a kit lens – we compare these against standard zoom upgrades, and ask whether it’s worth splashing out the extra for your lens you use everyday.
We also review the landmark Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct, and are astounded by just how sharp Nikon has managed to make this super-wide-aperture glass. And in our new Parting Shot section, Technique Editor Mike Harris muses who, at £8/$8k, is actually going to buy one.
Also new is our Photo Apps series, kicking off with Nikon Manual Viewer 2, which enables you to carry your camera instructions at all times. It’s in our Skills section, among other great tutorials.
This issue also comes with a bonus Teach Yourself Studio Photography ebook, designed to help you master lighting – be it a home studio or pro setup.
