The relentless march of technical progress in imaging is very exciting, but it’s refreshing that an area of photography that harks back to the roots of the medium is still so popular. Black-and-white photography enjoys a substantial following – and that’s what we’re focusing on this month, with a range of features and tutorials to help you shoot better mono images. Our cover feature looks at some theory and practice, shares some pro workflow tips and shows how to get creative with HDR infra-red. Back in the world of colour, though, we zoom in on some classic cars, bring you 10 fabulous new photo projects, demystify white balance, and blend bard and bokeh in Stratford-upon-Avon. We also test 39 memory cards, so make sure you consult our nine-page guide (from…

a blast at bicester

While I know very little about cars, I recognise a good car image when I see it. I came across Amy Shore’s work on Instagram, and immediately wanted to find out how she creates her elegant and classy photographs. Perhaps knowing little about a subject or genre makes it more intriguing, but fortunately for me, Amy invited me along to a ‘Sunday Scramble’ event at Bicester Heritage to see her at work. Bicester Heritage was founded in 2013 and is based at a beautiful 425-acre former RAF WWII bomber base. The site, which is north-east of Oxford, has quickly become a national hub for classic car enthusiasts. The meetup that I’d be attending runs several times throughout the year, but the January date is designed to shake off the post-Christmas and…

working the angles

Framing shots Amy looks for elements to shoot through and frame her pictures.“Light, colour, shapes – that’s all you’re trying to arrange in your picture,” she says. “If it’s a dull day, focus on colour and shapes.

1 Nikon D850 The D850’s weathersealed body enables Amy to keep shooting whatever the weather. “This is my primary camera, and a go-to combination with a 35mm lens attached.” 2 Nikon D5 “I’ve only just moved to the D5 this year.” The 153-point AF system on this full-frame DSLR provides Amy with wide coverage and precise focusing, for both moving vehicles and stationary ones. 3 Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 lens This lens is mounted to Amy’s D850. The 35mm focal length provides a natural angle of view, similar to the perception of the human eye. 4 Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 lens “Attached to my D5, this is perfect for capturing those moments that are just that little bit further away from me.” 5 Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens “This was my first proper lens after a kit lens. Once I got it,…
