Meet Jo-Anne McArthur, the voice and photographer for the invisible animals of our world See page 92 ¡Hola! We all love a weekend getaway, and with that in mind I hopped over to Barcelona to see the sights and experience the culture that this buzzing city has to offer. I had my Nikon in hand, of course, and show you how to return from a break with images that document your travels, rather than the usual holiday snaps. Elsewhere this issue our Apprentice goes on a wildlife shoot with a difference – using props and hidden treats he manages to capture the cutest critter shots imaginable. While in our interview hot seat, Jo-anne McArthur’s photographs of animals are of a very different variety; her disturbing and thought-provoking portfolio highlights their mistreatment at…

the n-photo team’s travel shooting tips

Adam Waring Editor Travel light! You may be tempted to carry all your kit for every eventuality, but odds are you won’t use it all and lugging it around in 30ºC heat is no fun. adam.waring@futurenet.com Jason Parnell-Brookes Technique editor Take a set of carbon fibre tripod legs with you so you can lower your overall carry-weight and not be completely exhausted by the end of the day! jason.parnell-brookes@futurenet.com Ben Andrews Lab Manager For tourist hotspots, shoot from an unusual angle or viewpoint, or pack a travel tripod and ND filter and blur away crowds with a long exposure. ben.andrews@futurenet.com Rod Lawton Head of Testing If you don’t have an ultra-wide zoom, now’s the time to buy one. You’ll need it for tall pieces of architecture and spectacular interiors. rod.lawton@futurenet.com…

Current Affairs & News Shortlist Rohingya Refugees Kevin Frayer, China A Rohingya refugee boy frantic for help cries as he climbs on a truck allotting aid for a local NGO near a refugee camp on September 20, 2017 in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

travel with your nikon!

Heading off for a long weekend break (or week in the sun) offers some great opportunities for the photographer. You’ll encounter a myriad of sights and sounds, and be immersed in the culture. The art of travel photography is documenting these experiences with your images to give viewers a taste of what it’s actually like at the destination. So how do you balance getting some great travel shots while enjoying your weekend away? First of all, you’ll want to travel light. While it’s tempting to pack your entire collection of lenses, a filter for every eventuality and that full-size aluminium tripod, walking around hot city streets laden like a packhorse isn’t much fun. You can get away with a couple of lenses, and if you do bring a (lightweight) tripod, it’s…

stunning cityscapes

Map out your trip To get the most of holiday destinations, it pays to plan ahead and know where you’re going to be at what time of day. The narrow streets of the old town offers shade from the midday sun and is great for banishing contrast, while locations offering views over the sprawling metropolis are superb for city scenes. Tourist maps will show you the main landmarks worth photographing, and tourist buses can be a good way to get around as they’ll have stops close to the top spots. Where to focus for sharp city scenes If your entire scene is far away then focusing on the closet building should get everything in focus, all the way to the horizon. However, if there is something close to the camera then getting both…
