WELCOME TO THE AUGUST 2019 issue of Digital SLR Photography. With summer in full swing, photographers will be taking full advantage of the good weather and longer days to head out and make the most of the opportunities the season presents. Landscapes and travel photography will top the list of subjects and it’s quite likely these topics will head up your plans too, but have you ever considered close-up photography? Shooting macro is an area of photography that offers the potential to capture images packed with impact and beauty, but it’s one that many photographers – in particular beginners – are put off trying due to the challenges it presents in terms of kit and technique. While it’s true that specialised kit, which can be expensive, is required to make…

Tryfan from Y Garn byAlessio Andreani www.alessioandreani.com “I planned this photo weeks in advance. There is some walking needed to reach this vantage point for a view of Y Garn in Snowdonia, Wales, so I needed a proper plan for the right time of the year; I went in April because I wanted some snow on the peaks and a lot of water in the lakes. Luckily the clouds did break up enough to reveal some sun rays and illumination.” NIKON D800 WITH 16-35MM F/4. EXPOSURE: 100 SECONDS AT F/11 (ISO 100). Boscastle, Cornwall by Alessio Andreani www.alessioandreani.com “This was one of the best and longest-lasting sunsets I have ever seen.

The competition was split into five categories: Animals, Plants & Fungi, Intimate Landscape, Manmade and Micro (for images captured with a microscope), as well as Young CUPOTY (for entrants aged 17 and under).
