Wel­come to is­sue 72

NPhoto - - From The Editor - Paul Gro­gan, Edi­tor paul.gro­gan@fu­turenet.com

“Road trip­pin’ with my two favourite al­lies, fully loaded we got snacks and sup­plies...” So be­gins Road Trip­pin’ by the Red Hot Chili Pep­pers, which waxes lyri­cal about the sim­ple plea­sures of the life on the road. I love the song and I love road trips, but best of all, I love cap­tur­ing them on my Nikon. In the Chilis’ case they got lost in the USA, whereas for this is­sue’s fea­ture, we got lost in the wilds of Scot­land. The views may be dif­fer­ent, but the feel­ing of free­dom is the same. You can find out how we got on, and what pho­to­graphic wis­dom and images we came back with, on page 26.

Some­one who did get lost in the USA is the reader be­hind this is­sue’s Photo Stories – you can en­joy his stun­ning pho­tos of Yel­low­stone Na­tional Park on page 70. And roads are also a key fea­ture in one of this is­sue’s Nikon Skills tu­to­ri­als, on shoot­ing traf­fic trails – in this case in Nor­way (see page 42).

And if all that sounds a bit ex­haust­ing, you might want to slow things down with a long-ex­po­sure seas­cape (p. 50), a tree-drag ab­stract (p. 48), or an artis­tic wed­ding shoot a bit closer to home (p. 58). Well, our home...

All that, plus what it takes to be a Getty news pho­tog­ra­pher (p. 100), what it’s like to pho­to­graph a Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal (p. 110), and what you should look for if you’re in the mar­ket for a Nikon-fit 70-200mm (p. 118). En­joy!
