Canon South Africa Cape Town Roadshow weekend. Part 1.
What to do when you have a camera in your hand at the Canon South Africa Cape Town Roadshow weekend…
This year has been a strange year for many people. For me, it has meant fewer posts on my blog for some reason even though I have been really busy.
Perhaps it is the new business strategy I am busy developing for my company, looking at new avenues for the services we provide as well as new exciting ones we are developing, who knows.
But I am excited about the future and to post some of the work I have shot this year!
Oh, and did I mention, the future is mirrorless? #EOSR
So here goes, this is part one of the recent Canon South Africa Cape Town Roadshow, part 2 will cover the mirrorless workshops we did the day after the roadshow.
I am fiercely proud of being associated with Canon South Africa, together with Roger Machin, they have supported me for many years and every issue I have ever had has been looked into and sorted out. The arrival of the EOS R and the RF lenses have rocked my world and have caused me to fall back in love with the beautiful sport of photography :-)
But I digress…
The Roadshows are always such an inspiration for me – talking to people and telling them about the awesome gear and seeing the work of super talented speakers like Roger Sedres, Trevor Hardaker and Chris Fallows… OMW.
I had seen Roger and Trevor’s presentations at previous roadshows, but the body of work that Chris presented was out of this world.
I thought he was the shark guy – he is that and so much more!
Watching his work I was inspired to go off the beaten track and find beautiful creatures to photograph. And at the same time to sell all my gear because his work was so epic there was no way I could ever hope to have a body of work like that.
When I have a camera in my hand I cannot help myself, I couldn’t resist shooting some behind the scenes on the day.
I was using the Canon RF 28-70mm f2 L USM lens on my EOS R and absolutely loved the results – I am tempted to say I would replace my EF 24-70 with this lens in a heartbeat.
It is monstrously sharp wide open (My test for all the RF lenses) and at f2, you have a lot more possibilities when the light is nowhere to be found.
Here are some behind the scenes images of the day with the setup, speakers and guests.
If you have any questions about my experience with the EOS R, please get in touch. I am more than happy to share my experiences relating to what I love and what I hate about the EOS R.
Please note, the hate list is very short and getting shorter by the day :-)
