welcome to issue 83

The Clash. The Sex Pistols. Bob Marley. Mick Jagger. Meet the rock photographer who’s shot them all… See page 92 What’s the first thing you do when you unbox your shiny new Nikon – read the manual, or head straight out to get shooting? While that thick book that comes with every camera is packed with important operating info, most of us are guilty of giving it little more than a cursory glance. So this issue’s lead feature is packed with 101 must-read tips to get the best out of your Nikon. It’s much more digestible than ploughing through that manual!

the n-photo team’s food photography tips

Adam Waring Editor Cooking up, styling and taking scrumptious shots of food is certainly lots of fun, but the best bit of all is eating it afterwards. Yum! adam.waring@futurenet.com Jason Parnell-Brookes Technique editor Soft window light cast over the food invites us to go for a bite. But if you find shadows are a bit dark, bounce some light back in with a white reflector. jason.parnell-brookes@futurenet.com Ben Andrews Lab Manager Food photography is all about the details: spotless presentation and a carefully dressed setting are vital, so tell any circling flies to buzz off! ben.andrews@futurenet.com Rod Lawton Head of Testing I’ve just bought a Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 for my D7200.

AT THE WATER’S EDGE CATEGORY WINNER Thórsmörk (the valley of Thor) Witold Ziomek, Poland After a morning full of drama, during which we almost ‘drowned’ our car in a river – and then pulled out a young Frenchman who had – we reached Thórsmörk, in the south of Iceland.

supercharge your nikon!

Unlike some camera manufacturers, Nikon doesn’t make fax machines, photocopiers, televisions, games consoles or vacuum cleaners. It started off as a maker of optical equipment, over 100 years ago, and has been specializing in cameras for the last 70 of them. Suffice it to say, Nikon knows a thing or two about camera design, and that can be a very delicate balance. There’s much more to a ‘good’ camera than how many megapixels it has, how accurately it can autofocus and meter the light, or even how well it can express the colour and tone of the subject you’re shooting. In some ways, a camera should be invisible. You see the shot, you take it. The last thing you want is to spend all your time wrestling with arcane menus and…
