WHAT THEY SAY...
New Found Perspectives With The Canon EOS R6
Like many people, I first came to photography in high school. This was back in the days of film and dark rooms. Over the years, I would come back to photography and then step away and then come back and on and on. It wasn’t until around 2015 that I started getting very serious about my photography. A couple years later I attended my first Paul’s Photo LA Zoo Day. From there I began regularly attending classes, weekend workshops and photo walks at the Creative Photo Academy.
The Creative Photo Academy has provided me not only knowledge and mentorship but the chance to collaborate with and learn from the other students. To paraphrase Mark, a photograph isn’t done until it’s shared. Through the academy I’ve been able to share my work with other photographers and see their work. We learn from one another and push each other creatively. I find being able to talk and experience photography with likeminded people is more valuable than any lecture on technique, though those are important too.
I’ve always shot Canon and switched to mirrorless two years ago when the Canon R6 was first released. Shooting mirrorless has added so much to my photography. The low light ability and incredible focus tracking have enabled me to get shots I could have never gotten with my old Canon DSLR. The RF 70 – 200mm 2.8 is my favorite, go -to, lens. It’s so light-weight and fast, I sometimes forget I have other lens.
I love the way photography has taught me to see the world, whether in grand landscapes or tiny details. I see light and shadow and shapes in a way I never did before. It doesn’t matter where you are, there is always an opportunity to take a great photo. It’s just up to you to find it. Paul’s Photo and the Creative Photo Academy are helping find me these opportunities. And I’m having a lot of fun doing it.
