Wel­come to is­sue 69

NPhoto - - From The Editor -

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!
