It’s a funny one, street photography. After all, it is, in essence, documenting the unremarkable goings-on of everyday life. But developing your photographer’s eye can reveal the extraordinary in the ordinary, and carefully considered compositions can bestow shots with laugh-out-loud humour. Nikon Ambassador Ross Harvey exclusively reveals his secrets for creative street photography in this issue’s lead feature.

And that’s not all. Also in this month’s N-Photo

Our Apprentice learns to shoot streets of a different kind; in the miniature world of model railways, as pro Chris Nevard shares his techniques for making these scaled-down sets look larger than life.

Fine art portrait photographer Sophie Harris-Taylor explains why she seeks out ordinary people to pose, rather than professional models, in the N-Photo interview.

A pair of N-Photo readers share more of their great photo stories. Paul Parent invites us to view his macro gallery of creepy crawlies, revealing the hidden beauty of wasps and hornets. And Animal-lover Ellie Sharples documents her beautiful shallow depth-of-field photography of her faithful canine companion, Dax.

In this issue’s Big Test, we turn the spotlight on studio lighting, weighing up the options of mains and battery-powered lights, as well as constant LED devices. We also try out six flash triggers for more creative off -camera flash setups in our Mini Test.

In our Skills section, we’ll tell you how to beat camera shake, perfect your panning, shoot long-lens landscapes, and create eye-popping portraits with water balloons. As well as projects in Adobe CC, Affinity Photo and Capture NX-D, we’re giving away ON1 Effects, worth £50!

This issue also comes with a bonus Teach Yourself Photography ebook, a beginners' guide that explains your camera's features and reveals how to use them to shoot stunning photos of landscapes, children, animals, holidays, night scenes and more!
