WELCOME TO THE JUNE 2020 issue of Digital SLR Photography. This is the second issue we’ve produced while on lockdown and it’s unlikely to be the last. The Covid-19 virus continues to be a serious threat and the magazine team would like to send our heartfelt thanks and admiration to everyone at the NHS and other frontline staff for their role during this crisis. If you are one of those brave many, thank you, your effort, courage and dedication are greatly appreciated by us all. As we continue to follow the government guidelines and remain at home, the options we have for what we can photograph continue to be limited, but we’ve tried our best to steer a good proportion of the technique content in the magazine to subjects you…

Loughr igg Fell by Stuart McGlennon lensdistrict.com “The forecast on the morning this image was taken was definitely ‘50/50’. However, after a restless sleep I made the one-hour drive to Grasmere and the short, steep ascent of Loughrigg. I was greeted with a spectacular inversion – out of shot to the left the mist completely covered Windermere, however there was enough of it lingering over Loughrigg Tarn below to add interest to the shot I’d came to capture.” Nikon D810 with 18-35mm f/3.5 lens. Exposure: 0.8 seconds at f/11 (ISO 64). Autumn at Buttermere by Stuart McGlennon lensdistrict.com “There’s not many prettier places than Buttermere when conditions are like this – I was treated to mirror-like reflections, lovely cloud and bursts of light in amongst the autumn colours.

CAMERA: NIKON Z7 / LENS: NIKON 70-200MM F/4 / ACCESSORIES: FTZ ADAPTOR & LEE FILTERS WHEN YOU VISIT the coast with your camera, you can expect to see rugged coastline, far-reaching cliff-top vistas, rocky beaches, sandy coves and reflective tidal pools. With the seaside being home to so much natural beauty, you would be forgiven for overlooking less appealing, man-made objects and structures. However, many seaside towns and resorts are home to all types of interesting features that – with thoughtful framing and a creative approach – can create visually stunning results. The angular, distinguished shape of man-made structures, like concrete steps, metal railings, posts and jetties provide great picture potential for photographers who are drawn to shape and form.
