WEL­COME TO THE AU­GUST 2016 is­sue of Dig­i­tal SLR Pho­tog­ra­phy. It’s a typ­i­cal English sum­mer’s day as I write this. Yes, that’s right, it’s rain­ing out­side. But thank­fully the poor weather will be pass­ing by soon to be re­placed by warmer and drier con­di­tions that suit pho­tog­ra­phy out­side. This month’s main tech­nique guide deals with shoot­ing out­doors, but rather than land­scapes, wildlife or na­ture, we’re look­ing at cap­tur­ing por­traits in day­light. Us­ing am­bi­ent light with­out any ar­ti­fi­cial light sources like flash­guns or por­ta­ble stu­dioflash is chal­leng­ing, yet highly re­ward­ing. You’re re­ly­ing on a light source you can’t fully con­trol, so the best you can do is ma­nip­u­late what’s avail­able to you us­ing rudi­men­tary but ef­fec­tive light­ing aids. In our Be­gin­ner’s Guide ( page 68), we’ve pro­vide ev­ery­thing you need to know on how to use day­light in its many forms to cap­ture stun­ning por­traits. It’s just one of the many ar­ti­cles that aims to raise your en­thu­si­asm for tak­ing pic­tures as well as im­prove the qual­ity of your re­sults. So whether you’re shoot­ing wild flow­ers ( page 52), ar­chi­tec­ture ( page 38), HDR land­scapes ( page 46) or clas­sic Bri­tish beach scenes ( page 32), we’ve ex­pert ad­vice for you. En­joy a great month’s pho­tog­ra­phy. All the best!
