Digital Camera World - - EDITOR'S WELCOME - Ben Brain, Ed­i­tor ben.brain@fu­turenet.com

For­get about the golden hours around dawn and dusk: the real magic starts when the sun’s gone to bed and the moon’s come out to play. Which is why in this month’s main fea­ture (page 38), we ex­plore the won­ders of the night’s sky, in our de­fin­i­tive guide to get­ting started with astro and night pho­tog­ra­phy. It re­ally isn’t as com­pli­cated as it sounds – and with

Chris Rut­ter’s no-non­sense, jar­gon-free guide, you’ll be shoot­ing ev­ery­thing from the moon and star trails to the Milky Way and more in no time..

We’re also start­ing a new Back to Ba­sics se­ries in the Shoot! sec­tion, and we’re kick­ing off with a guide to aper­ture and how con­trol­ling it can help you take bet­ter shots. So, whether you’re new to pho­tog­ra­phy or sim­ply want a bit of a re­fresher, turn to page 64 . If it’s in­spi­ra­tion you’re after, our in­ter­view with the leg­endary art pho­tog­ra­pher

Ralph Gib­son on page 92 is sure to get your cre­ative juices flow­ing. He’s a per­sonal favourite of mine, and it was a sheer de­light to hear his sto­ries.

Of course this is­sue is jam-packed with free gifts too, in­clud­ing another eight of our popular tips cards and a free copy of Pring’s Mini Pho­tog­ra­pher’s Mis­cel­lany – see be­low for de­tails.

En­joy your pho­tog­ra­phy!
