The latest issue of N-Photo, the award-winning monthly magazine for Nikon DSLR users goes on sale from 4 July. Here are the highlights…
You just can’t beat mountains for breathtaking scenery; with imposing peaks, inviting lakes and raging waterfalls, a day in a National Park is a photographer’s dream. With that it mind, we headed to Snowdonia for a yomp in the hills to shoot from dawn ’til dusk – and scaled Wales’s loftiest peak for good measure. And you can read all about our exploits – and pick up some handy tips for your own landscape shoots – in this issue’s lead feature.
And that’s not all. Also in this month’s N-Photo:
Our Apprentice gets at one with nature, learning to get great action shots of ospreys as they pilfer fish from a trout farm under the expert eye of wildlife pro Chris Gomersall.
Lifestyle and environmental photographer Holly Wren sits in the interview hot seat, Michael Freeman explains about the ‘creative triangle’, and lighting whiz Joe McNally pares it all back to a single softbox for his striking ballerina-in-the-kitchen portrait.
In our projects section, we show you how to: move away from Auto mode; mix oil and water for abstract art; set up your tripod properly for shake-free shots and cracking compositions; shoot classic cars on location, in the garage and on the race track; plus improve your photos in Photoshop, Lightroom and Nikon's Capture NX-D software.
In our gear section, we find which of six camera holsters are fastest on the draw, try out Nikon's ES-2 film digitizer for scanning slides and negatives, test the Western Digital My Passport Wireless SSD, and head to the city to put eight wide prime lenses for street photography through their paces for our Big Test.
