In a world where more and more pic­tures are taken on smarter and smarter mo­bile phones, there is one last bas­tion of cre­ative con­trol avail­able to the se­ri­ous pho­tog­ra­pher.The abil­ity to change lenses is one of the key rea­sons we use our DSLRs or mir­ror­less CSCs.These cam­eras are part of a sys­tem that al­lows you to cus­tomise your op­tic to the sub­ject you want to shoot, the dis­tance you can shoot from, and the vis­ual ef­fect that you want to achieve.

All too of­ten, we use our zooms or switch our lenses sim­ply to save our­selves hav­ing to move our feet.But it is the cre­ative pos­si­bil­i­ties pro­vided that most in­trigue me... You can find out 10 of my favourite lens tricks in our cover story on page 40. Else­where, we joinRoss Hod­dinott for a one-to-one masterclass on shoot­ing but­ter­flies and dam­sel­flies (page 8), and spend a rain-sod­den cou­ple of days with two readers in ourShootout (page 88). E njoy!
