A week in photography

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

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
