Welcome to issue 73
If you’ve ever taken your Nikon on holiday (or ‘vacation’, if you talk funny ;) you’ll know exactly what it’s like trying to fit your photography in with all the sunbathing/swimming/sightseeing/ baby-minding/basket-weaving. “What, another photo...? Who do you think you are, David Bailey?” come the cries from your nearest and dearest, as you line up for your seventh hour-long sunset on the trot. Never mind that David Bailey has probably never shot a sunset in his life; as far as your friends and family are concerned, you are spoiling the party (or at least delaying them getting to one).
Sound familiar? If so, then help is at hand: in this issue’s fab main feature (page 16), veteran travel photographer and author Steve Davey reveals the tips, tricks and techniques for fitting in your photography that he’s honed over years of travelling with family and friends (and yes, they are still friends).
The travel theme continues with this issue’s Head to Head (page 92), which pits a typical travel lens against two smaller lenses that cover the same focal length range. You might be surprised by which option comes out on top. And finally, don’t miss this month’s interview with Gameof
Thrones photographer Helen Sloan (page 98), who reveals just what it takes to shoot over a million photos on the set of the biggest TV show on earth.
