We’re aware that many amateurs find it daunting trying to shoot in Manual mode and set up flash lights. The great thing is, you’re in total control of the lighting, and your camera – which actually makes everything easier! 

To help simplify and demystify the world of studio portrait photography, we’ve enlisted experienced Canon pro Phil Barker who teaches our amateur Apprentice simple setups, to more advanced techniques using coloured gels, for some great portraits of our model Tyla. 

When learning to master the art of shooting portraits with studio lights, it’s a wonderful feeling when it clicks, and the portraits look bright and vibrant on the screen of your Canon camera. 

The best Canon experts

Also inside this cracking issue, we speak to five successful Canon pro photographers about how to make money with your Canon. From getting started to selling shots to stock libraries, family and wedding portrait photoshoots, to selling prints and running workshops – we’ve got you covered. 

In our Canon Skills section we have new photo projects and image-editing guides with free videos to follow along – from mega macro shots, using props for better portraits, and creative depth of field effects, to clever composite editing skills in Photoshop. 

Plus we talk to the ‘bi-polar’ Canon photographer Camille Seaman about her passion for photographing the frozen ends of the earth. While in our Super Test we lab test eight of the best budget lenses for Canon EOS R mirrorless cameras.
