Shoot incredible landscapes! N-Photo 117 on sale today

There’s more to ‘natural’ looking landscapes than meets the eye. More often than not, stunning scenic shots have been ‘helped’ to look their best through the use of filters to balance bright skies, eliminate glare or smooth choppy seas. Pro photographer Jordan Banks is your guide to using filters for your best-ever landscapes in this issue’s lead feature.

With a dozen different Nikons to choose from, including full-frame and APS-C sensor models, DSLR and mirrorless, which is the best for you? In our Big Test we evaluate the entire Nikon range…

Then, just as we went to press, Nikon surprised us with an exclusive look at the Z 6II and Z 7II – updated models of its full-frame mirrorless marvels. Also in our Gear section, we put the new Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S VR to the test.

Our Apprentice set an early alarm for a crack o’ dawn shoot of the deer rut in Richmond Park under the tutelage of wildlife pro Matthew Williams-Ellis, returning with some sublime stag shots to prove it.

We sit down with Nikon Ambassador Nadia Meli, who tells how she swapped weddings for portraits to reinvigorate her photography in the N-Photo interview.

Over in our Nikon Skills section, you’ll learn how to bring subjects closer with double exposures, get supreme shots of birds in flight, use your Nikon as a webcam, and shoot mono HDR scenes. Plus we have our usual Adobe CC, Affinity Photo and photo app tutorials.

And as an added bonus, we're giving away The Nikon Camera Book ebook edition.
