Canon South Africa Cape Town Roadshow weekend. Part 2.
The second part of the Canon South Africa Cape Town Roadshow weekend was the Mirrorless workshops on the Sunday, including a fashion show in an old church.
Not quite 1175 people, but they were close enough to see me sweat and heckle me :-) And I love that – I love the interaction and showing people how passionate I am about photography and talking about the gear that I use to get the shots I do for my clients.
I have recently sold my Canon 5D MKIV’s and moved over to the Canon EOS R System with the incredible RF lenses and in short, holy macaroni!
I am absolutely, madly and passionately in love – if you have not had a chance to use an EOS R and one of the amazing lenses, do yourself a favour and ask your local camera shop if you can do a try before you buy. And you will buy…
But that is for another post…
Here are some pics from the Canon EOS R Mirrorless workshop held at the Orms Cape Town School of Photography, and refurbed church on the next block called FORM.
I again spent my time shooting the BTS, the attendees, backstage, etc. It was really cool not to have to shoot the clothes as I would in a fashion show, but to shoot the whole experience from my own perspective.
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 :-)
Alternative angles like the glimpse of the models through the curtain before they walked out onto the ramp are always cool.
I love the feeling of this image. I can “see” the deep breaths, the thousand-yard stare, focussing on the task at hand while the other models are moving around her, music blaring…
I wanted to get a different angle on the confetti bombs with the couple and the photographers shooting them.
I also wanted to try some slow shutter speed motion shots. Very difficult, I sucked at it but was cool to try it out :-).
My version of Vladimir Tretchikoff’s Chinese Girl. I loved the stairwell – I am not sure if anyone else shot anything here.
