PhotoPlus: The Canon Magazine - new issue on sale now

The April edition of our sister title, PhotoPlus: The Canon Magazine, has just hit the streets (as well as subscribers' postboxes) - and it’s a huge issue. 

Inside, there's an in-depth night photography skills guide to help you master Canon DSLR techniques for great shots at night. From cityscapes and bridges lit up at night to starry skies and the Northern Lights; from fireworks and light painting, to classic traffic light trail shots.

In the regular Apprentice section, liquid specialist photographer David Lund shows how make a splash with high-speed flash photography.

Elsewhere, there are interviews with aviation photographer and Top Gun shooter John Dibbs about his career ascent, and Marco Gaiotti pushes his Canon kit to its limit with unplanned dips in icy waters.

The Canon School section is back by popular demand, and you'll find refreshed tutorials on Canon’s free Digital Photo Professional and EOS Utility. 

Also, everything you need to know about white balance, and readers' toughest technical questions answered.

The Canon Skills section features more fantastic photo projects and image-editing guides – and all of them come with accompanying free video guides on the disc – or accessible online – so you can follow and learn at your own pace.
