WELCOME TO THE JUNE 2020 ISSUE of Digital SLR Photography. In this month’s Photo Masterclass to using Raw, we show you how accessible the file format is and how easy it can be to upgrade your photography. Our Picture Special shows that, when it comes to hard-hitting images from across the globe, no contest comes close to matching the scope and impact of the World Press Photo awards. The Photo Expert guide focuses on garden birds, one of the most accessible types of wildlife to photograph without leaving home. Leading wildlife pro Ben Hall provides 15 of his favourite ideas to help you make the most of our feathered friends. We also follow Ben in our new Hot Shot series where he embarks on a trip of a lifetime to India, fulfilling a personal ambition to photograph tigers in their natural habitat. Lee Frost visits the Isle of Skye for our Photo Expedition. This beautiful Scottish island offers more scenic variety than any other – amazing coastline, picturesque fishing villages, jagged peaks, scenic waterfalls, wild moorland and peaceful glens. When the weather conditions work in your favour there is nowhere better for pure landscape photography. If you’re looking to test your creative skills, there’s no better place to head than the coast to experiment with ND filters and shutter speeds. Plus, we show you how to create a Zen garden for simple yet stylish images, why It’s worth the effort to be on location and ready to shoot before sunrise and how to shoot a creative still-life using the illusion of floating food.
