The events of the last year and a half have made many of us re-examine what we do, forced us to innovate and led us to change in ways large and small. As we tentatively look forward to better times, in this issue we celebrate starting over, creating anew, the power of change and renewed commitment. We focus on those who record the defining ‘new beginning’ for many people – the wedding day – as they look forward to the return of joyful human celebration. We talk to those to have made new, sometimes surprising, changes to their photography careers and how change has helped them grow as artists. If you’re thinking of trying something new, we also have some top tips on getting the best from your mirrorless camera when taking video. Photography has always been a place where art and technology operate together, each driving the other forward. The new NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 S VR is the latest technological push aimed at setting creativity free. The first prime micro lens for the Z mount, this S-line beauty will earn its place in the bag of anyone who likes to get up close and personal with their subject matter. If you haven’t used a micro lens before this will be the one to change your mind. We could all do with trying something new after all.
