Are you ready to make the most of the ar­rival of au­tumn?

WEL­COME TO THE NOVEM­BER 2017 is­sue of Dig­i­tal SLR Pho­tog­ra­phy. As the sum­mer draws to a close and au­tumn be­gins, it’s nat­u­ral to turn your thoughts to two op­pos­ing ends of the pho­to­graphic scale: colour and black & white. The trans­for­ma­tion of the land­scape from greens to gold draws out­door pho­tog­ra­phers to wood­lands, parks and forests across the na­tion in search of dra­matic and colour­ful im­ages. With the op­por­tu­nity last­ing only a hand­ful of weeks, it’s best to be ready to take ad­van­tage – our guide start­ing on page 51 pro­vides a range of ideas and tech­niques to try. The on­set of au­tumn is of­ten the time when many pho­tog­ra­phers turn their at­ten­tion to black & white pho­tog­ra­phy too – as the weather takes a turn for the worse and land­scapes look bare and bar­ren, cap­tur­ing moody mono­chrome im­ages is a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion. In our Be­gin­ner’s Guide ( page 68), we’ll ex­plain how to set up your cam­era and ‘ think mono’ to help you cap­ture and edit black & white im­ages for a range of sub­jects. Our is­sue also pro­vides a wealth of ex­pert ad­vice on other tech­niques, in­clud­ing por­traits, close- ups and land­scapes, along with au­thor­i­ta­tive re­views of a va­ri­ety of kit. We hope you find it an en­joy­able and ed­u­ca­tional read. All the best!
