WEL­COME TO THE APRIL 2017 is­sue of Dig­i­tal SLR Pho­tog­ra­phy. An hour ago it was pour­ing with rain; now the clouds have parted and sun­light’s il­lu­mi­nat­ing the land­scape. A day like to­day is typ­i­cal for spring, which is why it’s such a pop­u­lar sea­son for out­door pho­tog­ra­phers will­ing to gam­ble with the un­pre­dictable weather. With flow­ers burst­ing from the ground, blos­som and leaves ap­pear­ing on trees and baby an­i­mals aplenty, there is cer­tainly no short­age of pho­to­graphic po­ten­tial. Our in­spi­ra­tional guide, start­ing on page 79, of­fers a dozen ways to cap­ture great im­ages of spring, so be sure to take full ad­van­tage of the world as it bursts into life. If pho­tograph­ing wildlife is a pas­sion of yours, be sure to read our big in­ter­view with Ben Hall ( page 88), one of the UK’S lead­ing pros in this field. If por­traits are more your thing, the sec­ond part of our Be­gin­ner’s Guide to Stu­dioflash of­fers sev­eral light­ing tech­niques that will im­prove your pho­tog­ra­phy. Else­where in the is­sue, we’ve tu­to­ri­als and ex­pert ad­vice on var­i­ous other top­ics, rang­ing from build­ing and us­ing your own ring­light to shoot­ing win­dowlit flower im­ages or spend­ing a photo day in the city. We hope you’ll en­joy try­ing them all out and im­prov­ing your photo skills. All the best!
