A week in pho­tog­ra­phy

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

It’s shap­ing up to be a good sum­mer, so now is the time to sharpen your out­door por­trait skills. Stu­dio shoots are all very well, but there is noth­ing like skil­fully di­rected and shaped nat­u­ral light. See page 12 for ex­pert tips on mas­ter­ing the art of al­fresco peo­ple shots, with in­spi­ra­tion and tech­ni­cal tips to get you creat­ing your best-ever im­ages. Our com­pe­ti­tion – APOY (Am­a­teur Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year) – is also look­ing for por­trait en­tries, so this is a great way to kill two birds with one stone. Pen­tax fans, mean­while, will want to turn to our field test of the rugged K1 (page 40), and there’s a great tu­to­rial on com­bin­ing the power of Light­room and Pho­to­shop (page 34). Add in some great fea­tures on doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phy and you’ve got an­other en­gross­ing is­sue this week. Nigel Ather­ton, Editor
