In case you weren’t keeping track, Smart Photography completed 100 issues with the last edition (July 2013). With this 101st issue, we renew our pledge to bring the best of the national and international photography and imaging industry to our readers. In August, we feature ornithological photographer Partha Sinha (Kaleidoscope), and take a look at fashion photography through the work of Vipin Gaur (Showcase). Also, since we couldn’t pick the better of the two, August has not one, but TWO Master Craftsmans – Rajen Nandwana, and Indonesian Rarindra Prakarsa. Hope you like both the articles, and learn something from both of them. We take a look at Autofocussing (Basic Learning V), the importance of Perspective in Photography (Understanding Photography), and the importance of Production Designing & Planning for a photoshoot, in our tutorials. Finally, we review a raft of equipment, including the Panasonic Lumix G6, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300, Nikon Coolpix P520, Fujifilm X20, and the FUJINON XF55-200mm F/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS, and pit two iconic telephoto zoom lenses against each other in our Head-to-Head Comparison: the Canon EF 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6L IS USM v/s the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm F/4.5-5.6G ED VR. As always, feel free to write in with your comments and feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy reading!
