Things are looking up – and further afield – after our winter hibernation. As we take our tentative steps into the post-lockdown world, our thoughts will return to the adventures we may have been planning before the pandemic struck… whether at home or abroad. Whatever the scope of your plans, your first stop should be this month’s feature (p58), which is packed with hints and tips for taking your best-ever travel photos.

Elsewhere, Camera College continues with a motion-blur masterclass (p74), while we…

harry gruyaert

Visual storyteller Harry Gruyaert is known for his images of India, Morocco, Egypt and Ireland, and for his use of vibrant colour.

You’d be forgiven for thinking the DF-M1 is a piece of military hardware. The pop-up dot sight slots into the hotshoe of a camera, weighs very little and folds down when not in use. In practice, the sight allows you to pinpoint the centre…
