a week in photography

We’ve never been so spoiled for choice when it comes to cameras and lenses. There is simply no such thing as a bad camera these days, and few dud lenses, but that doesn’t mean some aren’t better than others for different people. Our job is to point out the strengths and weaknesses of different kit, so buyers can decide what best suits their needs. This week we present our top 40 cameras and 40 favourite lenses to help prospective kit buyers narrow down the options. If you’re not interested in kit right now we interview photography legend Marilyn Stafford, we present tips on photographing winter birds and location portraits, and lots more. If you enjoy this issue, why not subscribe? You’ll save 40% and get it delivered to your…

winter look book

Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 85mm, 1/400sec at f/2, ISO 100This winter fashion shot was uploaded to Instagram using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Eleanor Stobbart. She tells us, ‘This image was taken as part of an Autumn/Winter fashion editorial for a local model and fashion blogger. I particularly like this image as it is one of those natural moments between poses. I chose a location that was light and uncluttered with plenty of space, to minimise distractions in the photograph. Shooting fairly wide open with an aperture of f/2 gave the background that beautiful soft bokeh and made the model stand out. We shot in the morning on an overcast day, giving us a beautiful soft and flattering light.'IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES…

big picture

The British Wildlife Photography Awards showcase the diversity of the plant and animal life that exists on these islands.Paul Colley bagged the big prize of £5,000 with an astonishing infrared capture of three bats at night – but you'll have to wait until the 22 December issue to see that one. Professional ecologist Andrew McCarthy claimed the Hidden Britain prize with this image of a nursery spider lurking within the petals of a dahlia, waiting for her prey. The focus-stack comprises 42 images and took three or four attempts. Andrew focused just in front of the creature, then turned the barrel infinitesimally, taking a frame each time. The still conditions and bright overcast light were ideal for such an attempt.…
