Posts Tagged ‘the benefits of the Canon 5D’

I recently had the privelage of photographing Jessica, a good friend of mine. Walking the streets with a 5 in 1 reflector, I looked for shade and diffused light. Using the reflector to bounce back light onto the model, really made the images pop. The gold side of the reflector really helped with warming the face and the overall mood of the images. This shoot also was the beginning, of a hopfully long history, with my new EF 70-200mm f/4L IS.

Landscape photography with my Canon 5D has opened up new doors. Primarily I have a true 17mm wide angld field of view. This came in handy when photographing the Rockies. Secondly, the resolution and low noise is great for those times when you don’t have your tripod ready. I always try and use a tripod, but its good to know you can crank up the ISO a little and still have a great file. I am consistently looking for new gear to better my abilities of capturing the best landscapes presented to me. Inevitably it boils down to the photographer and the lighting. That is why I am always trying to be out in the woods, more than I am already.
