New Canon camera skills!

It may be cold, a bit wet, and sometimes feel like it’s already dark by mid-afternoon, but that doesn’t mean you should put your Canon kit into hibernation. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, it’s precisely these longer winter evenings that make it the perfect time of year to work on your night photography skills.

We had a great time on a photoshoot in central Bristol this month, with Canon pro Paul Groom, and PhotoPlus Apprentice Paul Way, taking great city shots at night. Learn how to take better shots, including epic traffic light trail shots, using long 30-second exposures.

We have more new photo projects with video guides for you to follow along, from shooting in the best light for landscapes, to custom festive bokeh shapes for more creative images.

We speak to Devon-based wildlife photographer Sam Hazell who’s passionate about getting out in nature with his Canon, and how it’s helped his mental health.

Plus there’s your Photo Stories, new Canon School and EOS SOS, where we answer all of your latest technical questions.

Also get your FREE Teach Yourself Macro Photography ebook worth £17.99, download details inside the mag.

We're the No.1 Canon magazine, written by Canon photographers, for Canon photographers, and we cater for every Canon EOS camera user.
