IT’S OFFICIAL: SPENDING TIME outside is good for you. In fact, it has ‘significant and wide-ranging health benefits’, according to new research from brainy science types. This wonderfully simple revelation is just one of the many reasons why this issue is a seasonal celebration of all things outdoor. The British Isles is home to an impressive number of hugely talented landscape photographers, each with their own unique vision and methods. For this issue’s brilliant guide to outdoor excellence (page 34), we asked six of our favourites to talk us through their distinctive styles, techniques and fieldcraft. From classic rural scenes to snow-capped mountains and beyond, there’s something for every outdoor enthusiast here, no matter your experience and ability.

beyond the lens

The Opal by Örvar Þorgeirsson This image of the schooner ‘Opal’ was taken in a remote part of north-east Greenland. A harsh midday sun and choppy waters are not ideal conditions, and usually I keep my camera in my bag on days like this, but the strong fjord wind in the backlit sails worked well with the wintry scenery to create an 18th century polar explorer feel. As I was shooting from another rocking boat, I had to make sure my shutter speed was fast enough to guarantee the image was sharp. Nikon D800 | 320mm | 1/640sec | f/8 | ISO 100 Landscape photographer Örvar Þorgeirsson is based in Iceland, and he runs regular photographic expeditions to the Arctic. arcticphoto.is Colour waves by Jürgen Armenat I have a passion for the façades of buildings, and particularly…

AWARDS Comedy wildlife shots rewarded The kings and queens of photographic funnies have been recognised by the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. The competition, run in association with conservation charity Born Free, saw 4000 entries from 68 countries compete for the crown, being whittled down to a shortlist of 40 finalists. Of that lucky bunch, the top honours went to Sarah Skinner. Taken in Botswana, Sarah’s shot shows an adult lion playing with a cub, and has been titled ‘Grab life by the...!’ As well as claiming the Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year title and bagging a safari to the Maasai Mara, Sarah also achieved first place in the Alex Walker’s Serian Creatures of the Land category. Other category winners include Harry Walker, who nabbed both the Affinity Photo People’s Choice and Olympus…

Fujifilm X-T4 The X-T3 is only just over a year old, but now rumours have begun circulating as to the X-T4’s specs. While there is no news on whether it will stick with the same 26.1MP sensor or not, it is expected to bring video features to the fore. We’ve heard Fujifilm is looking to include 6K video, 10-bit internal recording with F-Log, as well as IBIS and a fully-articulating LCD touchscreen. fujifilm-x.com Nikon D760 Rumour has it that the latest Nikon full-frame DSLR is set for an early 2020 release. We’ve heard that it’s expected to stick at 24MP, though will include a new BSI design, pack in more AF points – possibly the 153 focus points of the D850 and D500 – and capture 4K at 30fps, or 1080p at 120fps.…

ABSTRACT #1 Try out new things THERE’S A LOT TO BE SAID FOR STICKING WITH one genre of photography, honing your skills and practising until you know it inside-out. Then there’s the flip-side, where trying something new can spark your creativity, as Jack Appleton (jpappleton.com) has done. “My usual style is landscape photography, but then I saw this concept online and decided to have a go at something different. I scavenged around the house for props, gathering a bulb from a lamp, a piece of glass from a picture frame and some leftover sparklers from bonfire night. I placed some black card on the kitchen table then put the glass on top to create the base reflection. With the bulb in place on the glass, I secured a sparkler behind it on a…
