WHAT KIND OF photographer are you? Thanks to a short quiz I found online, I now know I’m a ‘Photo Flower Child’ owing to my tendency to shoot the ‘art you see in your mind. You don’t stress about having a set-in-stone itinerary for a shoot, you’d rather go with the flow’. It’s like they’ve met me. Whether you’re a Flower Child or Photo Ninja (that’s Kirk, apparently), there’s one inarguable fact that unites togs of all kinds – knowing how to get the best from our kit makes us better photographers. Lenses come in all shapes and sizes, and are the most important tools in our kit bags. But how do we get the best from them? How can we use them to turn a brilliant idea into a…

beyond the lens

Out of the blue by Iza Łyson This image was taken during a photo session for a puppy. The dog turned out to be a very promising subject, so it was quite a challenge for me as a photographer to capture and emphasise his very best features. I wanted to accent his blue eyes, so I had to find some background scenery that would make the colour stand out. A nearby river happened to be just perfect. The river itself didn’t matter, I just wanted to have that blue in the frame. Nikon D850 | 85mm | 1/5000sec | f/1.8 | ISO 400 Iza Łyson is a dog lover, proud border collie owner and photographer from Poland. She is also a 500px brand ambassador. 500px.com/izalysonarts Urban flights by Jan Kasl This spectacular bridge in Prague was seemingly designed…

rumour mill

Canon EOS Rs Rumblings have made their way to PP headquarters that appear to suggest that Canon is set to announce not one, but two new full-frame CSCs in early 2020. The first is believed to be a 75MP behemoth, which will feature a new design, dual card slots (possibly using CFast), and in-body image stabilisation. It’s aimed at professionals, and if true, will trump Sony’s α 7R IV resolution. canon.co.uk Fujifilm X100V We have reported on the rumoured fifth prestige compact from Fujifilm before, and we now believe that it has a firm release date, with an announcement set to take place during February. As well as bringing the X-Trans IV 26.1MP sensor, and advancements made thanks to the X-Pro3, it may also feature an updated take on the traditional fixed 23mm…

SEASCAPES #1 Seek out lead-in lines PUTTING A NEW TWIST ON A classic location isn’t always easy. Iconic places draw photographers like moths to a flame, all looking for a new angle to shoot. Beat the competition by focusing on finding strong lead-in lines and a solid composition, as Bradley Damms (braddammsphotography.co.uk) did at Cromer pier. “This is an iconic structure in Norfolk and is often photographed. To look for a different perspective, I headed a mile or so up the coast to Overstrand beach. I opted for a long lens to bring the pier closer, while keeping the amazing lead-in lines of the sea defences. I even stuck to the rule-of-thirds, which is something I rarely do. “On the day, there was a lot of haze in the air and very faint clouds…
