welcome

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER 2019 issue of Digital SLR Photography. With the latest cameras offering a wealth of features that make capturing images easier than ever, it’s understandable why many beginners leave their mode dial set to Full Auto, as more often than not this gives a good exposure. However, as experienced photographers know, taking control is essential for better results. Knowing how to change apertures and their effect on the image is arguably the first and most important lesson anyone looking to improve their photography skills can make.

leave it on the lightbox

CAMERA: NIKON D800 / LENS: SIGMA 60MM F/2.8 DN A THE CHANGING LEAVES of autumn have to be one of the year’s biggest highlights for many photographers, whether they’ve a penchant for landscapes, portraits or still-lifes. The varied colour palette can be quite the spectacle, providing the perfect luminous backdrop for creative still-lifes. Whether backlit by the sun or artificially by a lightbox, the amber and auburn leaves glow and their details become visibly enriched. As lightboxes are a throwback to the days of film photography, unless you have one stashed away they can be tough to find.
