The big Christmas issue no.173 of PhotoPlus: The Canon Magazine is on sale now – as well as being delivered safely to subscribers homes.

Big Christmas gift guide, festive indoor photo projects, Canon EOS R cameras and RF lenses guide, great Canon pros + free videos + free 132-page Canon Complete Manual ebook worth £10.99.

After a challenging year for all of us, it’s nice to know Christmas is coming! Inside in our big Christmas gift guide, we have more than 50 great gear ideas for that special photographer in your life, or for yourself! Starting at kit under £15 to more than £300 for larger Canon-related investments, there’s something to suit every budget.

As it’s likely to prove difficult to see all our loved ones at Christmas, we have a great solution with a simple step-by-step photo project to help you produce your own Christmas cards, with festive photos and personalized messages.

Sticking with the Yuletide theme, we explain how to master depth of field and bokeh blur using decorations and fairy lights. Plus we have three Crimbo-tastic image-editing guides in Photoshop Elements, Photoshop CC and Affinity Photo for some cool, creative imagery.

All our photo projects and image-editing tutorials come with videos online to follow along.

Expert Canon advice

We also have your essential guide to all of Canon’s EOS R mirrorless cameras and RF lenses. Learn more about this revolutionary system, and their pros and cons.

On top of all that, we have some great Canon pros in this issue, including teaching our Apprentice how to capture better shots of buildings, we talk to the George ‘the lion king’ Logan about his amazing African wildlife photography, and David Newton about Canon kit and inspirational photos.

We thank you for sticking with us during these times. Our PhotoPlus and Canon community is growing, and now more than ever it’s important we continue to support each other.
