Whether your preference is shooting landscapes or city streets, freezing action in its tracks or getting super-close with macro, the secret of a good photograph is being pin-sharp in all the right places, so in this issue’s lead feature we share our top tips to shoot it sharper.

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

Our Apprentice learns the tricks of the trade for shooting painterly images of pretty plants under the guidance of Royal Horticultural Society photographer Andy Small and his amazing array of homemade props.

Want to shoot everything from wide-angle to telephoto without changing lenses? We put a selection of eight superzooms to the test, including the spanking-new Z 24-200mm – Nikon’s first such lens for its Z range.

Also exclusively for mirrorless cameras, we see if the Z 20mm f/1.8 S continues to uphold the Z mount’s stellar reputation for image quality in prime lenses.

And in the N-Photo interview, we sit down with Andrea Bruce to talk about how she goes about documenting conflicts in some of the world’s most lawless war zones and lives to tell the tale.

We have our usual mix of shooting and photo editing projects to try your hand at.

And as an added bonus, we're giving away a Master Your Camera in 4 Weeks ebook.
