Welcome to the May 2016 issue of Digital Camera
This month’s special feature is a fascinating look at the art of storytelling through
photos. Photojournalist Stuart Freedman is your guide: through his inspirational images and expert advice, you’ll learn how to put a photo essay together in the classic style of the magazine Life. Thinking about photo stories and long-form projects such as Stuart’s is a great way to take your photography to a new level.
In this month’s Shootout, readers Geoff and Mike joined me on the Somerset coast at Porlock Weir. We were blessed with great weather and an inspirational location; see page 66 to see how they unleashed their creativity.
Next issue, on sale Friday 20th May, will be packed with travel advice and inspiration... and we’ll be giving away Creative Camera Skills, a brand-new DVD worth £19.99. This must-have disc offers 30 videos of cool creative techniques for you to get stuck into this summer!
