WELCOME TO THE OCTOBER 2017 issue of Digital SLR Photography. Summer is drawing to a close and while we’ve had a fair amount of rainy days, we’ve also been gifted some occasional, but lengthy chunks of hot, sunny weather, so we can’t complain too much. With the good weather set to continue a while longer we’ve no excuses not to head outdoors and once you’ve checked out this issue, we expect you’ll be gagging to get out and shoot! We’ve dedicated most of this issue to outdoor photography covering a wide range of subjects, techniques and kit. Wildlife photographers will be inspired by the story and images of Israeli photographer Roie Galitz (page 92), while our guide to wildlife on page 77 provides ideas and advice on how you can…

Four Seasons by David Ball www.davidballphotography.co.uk “We headed up the Quiraing on our second to last day on the Isle of Skye. I was excited to see snow, but the sky was dull. Having waited for almost an hour, I started to head back to the car – within minutes storm clouds rolled in and with them the most amazing light. I ran down to this famous tree, falling in the snow on the way.” Canon EOS 5DS R with EF 16-35mm f/4L lens. Exposure: 1/60sec at f/11 (ISO 200). Wetlands by David Ball “I must thank fellow photographer and friend Nick Hanson for this location. Photographing the Isle of Skye can be tricky – especially finding something a little different. Upon arriving at this location I saw the potential for a fresh take on…

The world is a smaller place now more than ever; we can virtually explore the planet thanks to the abundance of visual media at our fingertips, and we can physically travel with greater ease than previous generations. shop frugally and you can be on a plane and in another country for the price of a train ticket. surely that’s a far better way to improve photography than buying another lens or accessory? You don’t make great images sitting at home. Case in point – the winning images from this year’s National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year award showcase of the very best products of wanderlust. From violent volcanic eruptions in Mexico to underwater caverns, densely-populated settlements, and creatures and cultures in far-off countries, this year’s selection will have you reaching…

new dates for photokina show

Photokina is the world’s biggest photo and video trade fair and, up until now, it has been a biennial affair, taking place every other September in Cologne, germany. Earlier this year, the show organisers announced that 2018 would be the last biennial show as Photokina was to become an annual event. Photokina fans won’t have to wait long after the 2018 show for their next fix, however, as the first annual event is now scheduled for 8-11 May 2019 – just eight months later! Organisers have said that the move to the annual format is to "reflect the fast-paced nature and the ever briefer innovation cycles of an increasingly digitalised industry”.

haclong-term rentals

When it comes to buying new kit, trying before you buy is tricky. Ordering online gives you no chance to get hands on, and if you do – heaven forbid – visit a bricks-and-mortar shop, then a quick test under the watchful eye of a sale assistant usually isn’t long enough to try out a product properly. Renting before you buy, however, is a great way to save money. Not only can you borrow rather than buy if you need something for the odd occasion, but you can also use renting to see how you get on with new kit. To make the prospect even more appealing, the folks over at HireACamera have recently added up to 30% discount on their standard daily rates when you hire a camera for…
