With a busy summer staycation on the horizon, why not make 2021 the year you take your best-ever seascape shots? Turn to page 56 for an in-depth masterclass on capturing the coast, and ride the wave of hints, tips and expert advice. If you’d rather stay local, though, then another raft of projects awaits in Photo Active (p16) and Stay at Home (p43), while Camera College offers an introduction to still-life photography (p68). On other pages, you’ll find plenty of inspiration: Hotshots showcases the Portrait of Humanity Awards 3 (p78), and in our interview (p134), leading wildlife photographer Marsel van Oosten discusses his new book Mother.

the great british photography challenge

Hello photographers…” Rankin’s regular greeting on The Great British Photography Challenge may well endure as a catchphrase in the photographic community long after the BBC series concluded on 14 June.

(For anyone who didn’t manage to tune in to BBC4, you can catch the series on BBC iPlayer until June 2022.) The Great British Photography Challenge saw six amateur photographers selected to showcase their skills on prime-time television; the images they produced in response to the weekly assignments and briefs contributed to a set of 15 that were exhibited in a…

garden visitors

10 things to shoot, edit or create this month, including starry nights, floor-based fashion and everlasting love Garden birds are great to see at any time of the year. A common visitor to our gardens is the blue tit; they enjoy a wide range of natural food, but appreciate being offered something extra – so we always hang some food from our magnolia tree for them. I decided to try to capture these busy little birds with my Fujifilm GFX 50R and GF 110mm f/2 lens, plus a Godox V860II flashgun. I waited for a solitary arrival to alight on my target area. The blue tit took up several poses, and I snapped away until it decided to depart. It seemed completely unaware of the high-speed flashes and continued to feed happily. This…
