Whether pounding the pavements of your hometown or seeing the sights of the world’s great metropolises, there’s so much to capture in the urban conurbations most of us call home. Award-winning photographer Jordan Banks shares his top tips for shooting cities in this issue’s lead feature.

Heading out into the countryside, our Apprentice heads for the hills of the bucolic Brecon Beacons for a dawn-and-dusk shoot under the expert guidance of landscape pro Edyta Rice.

Back in the city, we try lenses that are ideal for street photography; but while ‘street’ used to equate to 35mm primes, times have changed and we’re including widish zooms, too. We also share our pick of photo paper for perfect prints and test the Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift – a wide-angle ‘shift’ lens for a lot less than Nikon’s PC-E optics.

In Nikopedia, we explain the science behind exposure, and how manipulating your Nikon’s key controls of aperture, shutter speed and ISO is key for creating appealing images. Plus, we explore Curves and Levels in Nikon’s free NX Studio, while our Skills section is packed with a plethora of projects to try your hand at.

And as an added bonus, we're giving away Photography Tips, Tricks & Fixes ebook edition – packed with practical advice for turbocharging your photography.
