For photographers, travel is particularly exciting in many ways. In the distance you will find countless new impressions, views and motifs – the architecture of foreign regions and countries can be as interesting as it is challenging. Because the view of the architecture in New York, Istanbul, New Delhi or Butan may be spectacular, but the fascinating impressions of your travels often only appear half as impressive in a photograph.
For example, you have seen certain perspectives of the Empire State Building or the Taj Mahal 1000 times, and for ambitious photographers, “re-photographing postcards” cannot be the goal. In our cover story, we therefore give design tips on how to capture the fascination of world-famous sights as well as lesser-known motifs in your photos.
Photographing world-famous sights in a different way, in the current c’t photography we explain how it works.
In the new issue of c’t photography, the award-winning travel photographer Thorge Berger explains how, with a little training, you can sharpen your photographic eye when traveling to show well-known sights in a different way: Combine the photographic design elements of light and shadow with unexpected perspectives and take photos You outside the usual times or in bad weather. As a traveller, you should expressly take your time for the subject and, above all, distrust the first photo reflex.

APS-C – the new cameras in comparison. Canon and Fujifilm have introduced their new mirrorless APS-C models: the EOS R7 and the X-H2S should be professional, versatile and fast, in order to also be interesting for action and wildlife photographers. We tested the new APS-C models in the laboratory and in practice and show where their strengths and weaknesses lie. We also introduce Nikon’s new ‘always with you’ camera – the Z 30 – and explain who the new, uncomplicated camera is of interest to.
Four super telephoto lenses for little money. We took a look at the new fixed telephoto focal lengths from Canon and Nikon in practical and laboratory tests and found that the long telephoto focal lengths can now not only be quite cheap, but also surprisingly good. Super-telephoto lenses between 400 and 800 mm are finally becoming more affordable for many amateur photographers.
Exposed Arcadia. Public parks and landscape parks are exceptionally designed places and not only interesting for garden lovers. The green areas offer photographers a wealth of motifs: from colorful flowers to huge trees to landscape architecture. We will show you where in Germany you can discover this variety of motifs and how you can find the right perspective for attractive picture compositions.
Square photo books put to the test. The square format is very well suited for the analogue presentation of photographs. That’s why we anonymously ordered square photo books from ten suppliers and looked at what they had to offer for up to 30 euros. The differences are significant in terms of both quality and features.
Legend from Wetzlar. For a long time, the Leica M6 was the tool of choice for important photographers in reportage and street photography and beyond. With hardly any other analog camera you can take photos as unobtrusively and precisely as with this rangefinder camera. Introducing the M6 and its special features – a declaration of love to a classic camera.
