WELCOME TO THE MARCH 2020 issue of Digital SLR Photography. As a photographer, if you could ‘wish’ for just one thing, what would it be? Would it be to be able to afford the latest top-end camera or maybe the ability to instantly know what camera settings were best (come on, don’t be lazy, practice can get you there!). For me, without a question of a doubt, it would be to have the funds and the time to travel the world and capture the diversity and beauty of our planet’s people, cultures, wildlife and landscapes. That’s why at the start of every year, I look forward to the release of the winning images of the Travel Photographer Of The Year (TPOTY) awards. In my opinion, no other photo competition can…

First Light by Emma Stokes www.emmastokesphotography.co.uk “I set out early for a dawn shoot whilst on holiday in Croyde last August not knowing what it would offer, but a post-storm swell and incoming tide, combined with sun-tinted clouds to the west, made for a very welcome scene. The biggest challenge was finding the right location for the tripod on the sharp and jagged rocks.” Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with EF 17-40mm f/4L. Exposure: Eight seconds at f/8 (ISO 100). Return to the Sea by Emma Stokes www.emmastokesphotography.co.uk (Right) “This was taken on the famous diamond beach at Jokulsarlon in winter. A solitary ice rock caught my attention with its surface pattern and beautiful turquoise tones.

world of wonder

AWARDS SPECIAL IT IS EASY to take for granted how privileged we are to be able to witness spectacular images from every part of the Earth, from the highest peaks and the remotest areas of terra ferma to the darkest depths of our oceans. The winning images from the 2019 Travel Photographer Of The Year (TPOTY) awards by amateur and professional photographers provides a fascinating, awe-inspiring and in some cases shocking insight into the world we share.

CAMERA: NIKON Z 7 / LENS: NIKKOR 14-30MM F/4 / FILTERS: LEE FILTERS 0.6 ND GRAD (MEDIUM) & LITTLE STOPPER SO YOU WANT to capture a great coastal sunset? You have planned your visit to the seaside meticulously, checking the sun’s position (using a sun calculator, like The Photographer’s Ephemeris), tide height, and packed your Wellington boots. However, when you get to the beach, you are greeted with a boring, cloudless sky. What do you do? Turn the car around and head back home, or try to make the most of the conditions? While there are many things within our control as landscape photographers – for example, selecting the correct exposure, filters, shooting angle and composition – we have absolutely no say over the conditions. Yes, we can check the weather forecast…
