a week in photography

Few things in photography are more visually satisfying than the rich blacks and almost tangible grain you get in skilfully developed black & white film images, but not everyone has the time or inclination to acquire the necessary darkroom and printing skills. So this issue we explain how to get the classic black & white aesthetic with digital cameras and software, and the results are a lot more satisfying and authentic than you’d initially expect. Another highlight of this issue is our in-depth (and glowing) review of the Nikon Z 6, in many ways a game-changing full-frame mirrorless camera and a very important one for Nikon. Anyone in the market for a new smartphone definitely needs to check out our Huawei Mate 20 Pro review too.

seaham storm

THIS dramatic seaside scene at Seaham in County Durham was uploaded to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Amateur.photographer.magazine). It was taken by Andrew Davison. He tells us, ‘Seaham lighthouse and pier really catch some spectacular waves at high tide, especially when the wind is blowing in from the North Sea. On this occasion, I made sure that I checked the tide tables, weather forecast, wind direction and sunset times. Luckily, all of them were in my favour. It was a very cold, late afternoon and just as the sun set beneath the cliffs behind me, it lit up a huge wave that came crashing over the pier.' © ANDREW DAVISON IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES ONLINE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA…
