    Frozen flower photography: the perfect rainy day photo project

    Freezing flowers is a great way to give your flower photography a chilling and painterly look. It might seem a bit odd to encase a delicate flower in a heavy and harsh block of ice, but the cracks, bubbles and other imperfections created by many gradual layers of frozen water can actually give your subject a lovely impressionistic quality.

    At last – there’s a monthly photography magazine just for Nikon users!

    N-Photo’s mission is to help you get the most from your Nikon and every one of the magazine’s 132 pages is packed with Nikon-specific advice.

    Unlike other photography magazines, our how-to articles are all illustrated with Nikon screens and menus. And because we only test Nikon-compatible gear, we’re able to bring you a greater selection of relevant product reviews than other titles.

    Each issue of N-Photo is designed to help you develop as a photographer. Our plain-English guides and creative projects will help you master your Nikon digital SLR and key photographic principles. And we provide plenty of help for editing photos in both Photoshop and Nikon Capture NX 2.

    We’ll make sure you stay inspired too, by showcasing the very best Nikon photography from around the globe and bringing you regular insight from leading Nikon professionals.

    N-Photo is also a truly interactive experience, with every article in our Nikon Skills how-to section accompanied by a video lesson. Not only does this make us the only photography magazine to offer live action tutorial videos every month, but it also provides you with two great ways to learn new techniques.

    N-Photo is available in both print and digital editions.

    Nikon interview: XQD memory card format is the future

    Nikon has affirmed its belief in the newly developed XQD memory card format, which so far is only available in its flagship DSLR, the Nikon D4.

    Many expected that the new memory card format would make it into the Nikon D800 when it was launched, however that features dual slots which take the older Compact Flash and SD cards.

    Nikon is the first manufacturer to introduce the memory card format into its cameras, with its professional level D4 camera.

    How to blur the background in Photoshop and sharpen foreground detail

    The ability to sharpen an image after you’ve taken it is a saving grace. Sometimes a shallow depth of field or a wrongly chosen autofocus point can mean that key details in an image are soft. Using the Unsharp Mask filter in Photoshop can bring back these lost details, and prevent an otherwise great photograph from being destined for the recycle bin.

    In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll show you how to blur the background in Photoshop and sharpen detail in your foreground interest. Here we’re going to apply two layer masks to our snowy egret image: one to sharpen the fine feather details and one to blur out the background.

    Waterfall pictures: set up your DSLR to shoot moving water

    Waterfall pictures are some of the most satisfying subjects you can shoot with your digital camera. However, the fast moving water throws up some challenges for photographers.

    Often, exposures end up disappointing – you may have set the wrong shutter speed, for instance, and won’t get the traditional blurred-water effect in your waterfall pictures. Other times the exposure ends up being too dark or light, due to having to cope with the combination of dark rocks and bright, foamy moving water.
