We have a brilliant issue of PhotoPlus: The Canon Magazine in store for you this month. First up, our PhotoPlus Apprentice Sue spends a day in the photo studio with Canon pro Andy Green, learning how to take amazing close-up photos of all sorts of reptiles and amphibians! 

We reveal two new budget Canon mirrorless, in the shape of the lightest full-frame EOS R camera, the new Canon EOS R8, plus the new APS-C mirrorless Canon EOS R50, and new RF 24-50mm and RF-S 55-210mm lenses.

New Canon camera skills!

Also inside, we help you get the most out of your Raw images, with our 10 essential Raw image-editing tips, from the basics to more advanced techniques.

In Canon Skills, we have some new photo projects, including how to use cool coloured gels on flashguns to create warmer backdrops for creative outdoor portraits – even if this sounds totally backwards! Plus how to take sharper shots, and more inspiring image-editing tutorials – all with free video guides.

We interview dazzling ‘dogtographer’ Kaylee Greer, who uses a super wide-angle Canon EF 11-24mm lens and lights for her colourful close-up dog photos, shot against beautiful American landscapes.

There’s more of your great images in Photo Stories, and in Canon School we help you master your wide-angle lenses, and answer your technical questions in EOS SOS. 

We also test eight of the best budget lenses from Canon, Sigma and 7Artisans, prices starting at only £109.
