Welcome to issue 69
One of the age-old frustrations of landscape photography is that the weather doesn’t always play along, especially in winter. How can you capture stunning – heck, even passable – images when the wind is threatening to whip your tripod into the nearest lake and the rain/sleet/snow/hail (delete as appropriate) is making a good case for built-in lens wipers?
Well, N-Photo reader Steven Henriksen might have the answer. He found himself shooting landscapes in precisely these conditions on this issue’s Apprentice shoot in Norway. You can find out how he got on, and how he was able to work with the conditions rather than against them, on page 50.
Other highlights this month include our brilliant guide to taking the next – or even first – step with your portraiture (it really is as simple as turning on the lights); our inspirational gallery of the year’s best travel images taken on a Nikon; our story of a multi-award winning press pro who got his first big break when he was just 19 (a real-life example of the old adage ‘f/8 and be there’); and our wide-ranging interview with legendary nature pro Frans Lanting, whose own sage advice you can find on this issue’s cover. Enjoy!
