Welcome to your new issue of Digital Camera
Britain’s best-selling photography magazine
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!
