A week in photography
We’ve all heard stories of vintage Leicas or rare cameras costing more than a penthouse in Knightsbridge, but relax: you don’t need to be loaded to own a still-usable classic. On page 40, vintage camera expert John Wade reveals a tempting choice of oldies that can deliver quality photos and retain their value. Using older ‘manual’ cameras can help your digital photography skills, as we’re too reliant on electronics and micro-computers doing a lot of the work.
Lest anyone accuse AP of living in the past, we also bring you a practical guide to social media platforms for photographers – they’re not about showing off, but building audiences for your work. And don’t miss the chance to win yourself a fantastic new Sigma macro lens (page 30). It’s all happening in this week’s issue. Nigel Atherton, Editor
