Flower Photography with Canon

Spring has sprung! Now let's shoot some flowers with Canon.

Canon and michaels want to help you celebrate the arrival of the warm spring weather with some flowers for your visual and photographic pleasure.

All day long our florist Hattie Malloy will be creating floral arrangement to please both the eye and lens. Learn a bit about the art of arranging, then get creative and capture Hattie’s works with your own photographic style.

Document the florist at work or dive into the intricate details of an individual flower — either way Canon has you covered with a range of lenses perfect for isolating the subject, getting in close or even bending the plane of focus.

A selection of pre-release Canon products will be on hand so you can test them out before anyone else. The new range of Tilt Shift Macro Lenses will be a perfect match for a test drive in our floral playground.

Canon’s ambassador and all round Tilt Shift expert, Ian van der Wolde will start the ball rolling at 9am with his presentation "The Technical and Creative Uses of Tilt Shift Lenses" in our Lecture Theatre. Then it’s your chance to get hands on with Ian’s help to give Canon’s amazing Tilt Shift Macro Lenses a try for yourself.

This free event will have something for everyone no matter what brand you shoot on so don't forget your camera and some spare memory cards as you are going to want to try out some of Canon's great cameras. You can bet they will have all their newest compacts, mirrorless and DSLR's to show off.

Manage to capture a floral masterpiece of a shot? Take home a free Canon print as well.
