With spring in its full throes, now is the perfect time to get outside and photograph flowers. To that end, floral photographer Andy Small reveals his tricks of the trade for shooting truly creative plant portraits. 

Our Apprentice heads to the not-so-mean streets of Bristol to document the gentrification of the once-notorious Stokes Croft area of the city under the watchful eye of acclaimed street photographer Colin Moody. 

In our Gear section, we take a look at eight lenses that are perfect for portraiture, combining a mid-telephoto focal length and wide aperture for a delightfully shallow depth of field and stunning bokeh. We also pick five ND filter systems for slowing your shutter in both screw-in circular and slot-in square formats. And, while we already know that the Nikon Z 6II is a brilliant mirrorless for stills, we test out its video capabilities with the Essential Movie Kit bundle. 

In Nikopedia, we show how taking your Speedlight off-camera is key for creative flash photography, and continue our exploration of Nikon’s free NX Studio, while our Skills section is packed with projects to try, from frames-within-frames to soap-bubble planets.

Plus we have our usual mix of inspirational interviews, cracking columnists and tutorials to try at home. And as an added bonus, we're giving away Senior's Guide to Nikon ebook edition – an easy-to-follow guide to using your Nikon camera.
