The latest issue of N-Photo, the award-winning monthly magazine for Nikon DSLR users goes on sale from today. 

The main feature gives expert advice to improve the sharpness of your shots. With ever-increasing megapixel counts, advanced focus modes and amazing ISO performance, the latest Nikon DSLRs will give you incredibly detailed shots. But this level of detail isn’t worth anything if you don’t get your shots sharp in the first place. So travel photographer Steve Davey shares his in-the-field tricks and techniques for getting your sharpest ever shots. 

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

With the World Cup around the corner, our Apprentice learns the art of photographing footie to produce the sort of action pictures the papers will be clamouring for.

We speak to husband-and-wife nature photographers Orsolya and Erlend Haarberg about how their respective landscape and wildlife photography disciplines complement one another. 

In our Projects section, we show you how to: master the classics of composition; capture classic coastal scenes; blur backgrounds from moving vehicles; use the forced perspective technique to fool the eye into believing a model car is the real thing; plus improve your photos in Photoshop, Lightroom and Nikon's Capture NX-D software. 

In our Gear section, we check the new Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art lens and ask whether this is the best-ever wide-angle zoom

Using a decent tripod goes a long way to achieving sharp shots, and so we've rounded up eight good-value tripods, all around the £200/$300 mark, in our Big Test. 

And if your telephoto lens is a real whopper, you'll be pleased to know that we've also put six gimbal heads through their paces.
