This issue comes out just as we all take a well-deserved festive break. It’s a time for reflection as we look back on the year past, and various levels of lockdown aside, it’s been a pretty good one when it comes to kit. We bring you the best that 2021 has brought us in our annual Gear of the Year roundup.
Also in our Gear section, we test the svelte Z 40mm f/2 and explain radio flash triggers, with our pick of five of the best.
With winter well and truly upon us, we enlist the advice of explorer and travel photographer Dave Williams, who shares his tips for shooting snowy scenes, winter wildlife and, if you’re lucky, capturing the majesty of nature’s most amazing spectacle, the Northern Lights.
Our Apprentice gets top tuition from wildlife photographer extraordinaire Laurie Campbell for capturing coastal critters, from squabbling seals to abstract slow-shutter seagulls.
And our Nikon Skills section takes on a distinctly seasonal theme, as we show you how to capture beautiful bokeh from Christmas lights, embark on (and keep on going with) a 365 photo project, create an image-filled wreath in Photoshop, and shoot a scrumptious festive spread.
Plus, as a special bonus, we're giving away a free N-Photo: The Nikon Annual 2022 ebook – packed with the very best bits of the N-Photo magazine in one handy volume!
