When I’m stuck be­hind a slow-mov­ing learner driver on the road, I try to re­mind my­self not to get an­gry – af­ter all, we all have to start some­where don’t we? The same goes for Canon users, we all have to start our DSLR pho­tog­ra­phy jour­ney some­where. With this in mind, our main Canon skills guide this month is a DSLR Starter Pack for new­bies who need to get to grips with their new EOS cam­era and learn ba­sic Canon cam­era craft. There’s also great tech­niques for those more ad­vanced ama­teurs who need to re­fresh their Canon cam­era skills. See page 28 to get stuck in.

Also in this is­sue, our Ap­pren­tice spends a lovely morn­ing learn­ing how to pho­to­graph laven­der fields with great Canon pro, Guy Ed­wardes. From wide sweep­ing scenes to close-ups of flow­ers and in­sects, Guy helps him mas­ter it all. See the Ap­pren­tice’s amaz­ing Hot Shots from page 8.

We also in­ter­view artis­tic fam­ily por­trait photographer, He­len Bartlett, on page 64. In Canon Skills, new photo projects in­clude pho­tograph­ing un­der­wa­ter, sim­ple still-life home stu­dio set­ups, and street pho­tog­ra­phy tips, new image-edit­ing tu­to­ri­als, plus all come with free video guides so you can fol­low along and get things how you want, start­ing on page 45.

We have some new ad­vice for you in this month’s Canon School (from page 79), with tips on how to make the most of brack­et­ing for bet­ter ex­po­sures, and in our Gear sec­tion (from page 95), we’re test­ing eight of the lat­est photo-edit­ing soft­ware pack­ages, plus Sigma’s brand new 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens on page 100.

Don’t for­get to check out our re­vamped web­site which is packed with Canon news, photo tu­to­ri­als, free cheat sheets and buy­ing ad­vice.
