We’re celebrating the sizeable landmark of reaching 200 issues this month, with a bumper production that’s packed with great content, plus the chance to win valuable prizes by voting for your favourite cover! We’re spending some time looking back at some of the developments that have taken place in the sixteen years since we first hit the streets, which incredibly includes the introduction of the smartphone and the total digital transformation of the professional business, and we’re also recalling some of the great names who have graced our pages over the past couple of decades.
Rising Czech fashion and wedding photographer Simona Smrckova provides the cover for our special issue and tells us how she regularly turns down commercial work in order to retain control over her output, while Kathryn Cooper is sharing her extraordinary images of starling murmations, one of nature’s most glorious and evocative sights.
Elsewhere this month we’re looking at how to mimic the gorgeously vintage feel of Kodachrome using Affinity Photo, Lisa Devlin is recalling her early move into digital photography when she was first starting out in weddings, our ground-breaking audio series is continuing with a look at how to cut the cord if you’re looking to record subjects from a distance and we’re catching up with a skydiver who’s borrowed his camera kit from secondhand specialist MPB.
All this plus a group test of gimbals from Zhiyun, Ronin and Manfrotto, an 800mm shoot-out between a full frame Nikon 800mm and its MFT Olympus equivalent and a full review of the epic Chillblast Defiant laptop, one of the best priced fully-featured editing machines on the market. Lots to catch up on, so feel free to dive in!

Our new MPB-sponsored series celebrating used kit sees wedding photographer Tommy Reynolds working with a Canon EOS R6 and 50mm f/1.2 to partner his current EOS R5.
The vintage analogue look is massively in vogue right now, and it’s simple to re-create the look and feel of a classic emulsion such as Kodachrome by using the handy toolset that can be found in Affinity Photo.
The days when mics needed to be connected by trailing wires are thankfully behind us, and a new breed of clever wireless audio systems has opened up a whole new range of possibilities.

There’s a wide choice of image sensor sizes out there, but if you imagined that there is only type of lens to partner each of them then think again, because the range of options you have is huge.
