welcome to the may 2017 issue of digital camera

THE wonders of the world in close-up offer some amazing opportunities for photographers. Our cover story this issue shows you all you need to get started with some cool and creative projects. We also catch up with Levon Biss, whose staggeringly detailed images of bugs are, quite simply, stunning! To capture such intricate detail, many of Levon’s images are made up of a mind-boggling 8 to 10 thousand photos. Even if macro photography isn’t your thing, I’m certain you’ll be impressed by these wonderful and revealing images. Battling with the elements on the Jurassic coast, Digital Camera readers Chelsea and Lynne joined me for a wet and blustery day of shooting.

a snapshot of the photography show

Other highlights from this year include getting insight into the work of Nadav Kander; listening to a super talk from the always-inspirational David Alan Harvey; seeing Joe McNally running a photo walk around the NEC, and showing what you can pull out of what appear to be the most unphotogenic of locations; Ben and other judges getting to hand out the 60 Seconds to Change Your Life award to…
