#BehindTheShot with #CanonExplorerOfLight @jeremycowart: "I’m really proud of a recent shoot I did with @mattmahermusic. The label wanted us to go up north to shoot on some beaches but logistics kept us from doing so. So I said “I think I can take us to the beach in my studio”. So that’s what I did. Typically, you can photograph someone on a wall and then composite a background behind them, using photoshop. This technique has been done for years and is done all the time. But I wanted to get it all in camera without having to rely on ANY photoshop. So I used a super high res Canon projector (The WUX450ST) and projected beach images behind Matt on a white wall and then I matched the lighting to the photo and direction of the sun. So what you see here is done all in camera with no compositing or photoshop. I think the only thing I did was desaturated the image a little in post. This image was shot with the Canon 5Ds using the 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens. Focal length was 50mm at ISO 160 and the shutter speed was 1/20th. It’s amazing what can be done with high end projectors these days. I rely on them frequently." Camera: Canon EOS 5DS

Inside #CanonExplorerOfLight @lindsayadler_photo's camera bag: "The most important part of an image is what I put in front of my lens-- the content! That being said, I must also have the right gear to bring my vision to life. I love to shoot in the studio is because, to put it frankly, I’m a control freak! I control every single pixel in my frame. Every bit of light has been carefully decided upon and placed! I used to think it was overwhelming, but once you master studio lighting it is actually quite freeing! Let’s take a look at the tools in my camera bag that I use to create in the studio.

Canon 5DIV: I’ve been shooting the 5D series of cameras for more than 12 years, so much so that this camera has simply become an extension of myself! With each version Canon keeps improving image quality and performance, and keeps its same seamless interface. If I need higher megapixels, sometimes I’ll grab a Canon 5DS, especially if I may need to crop in even tighter.

EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM: My go-to portrait lens for versatile and flattering compression.

EF Zoom 24-105mm F/4L: The lens on my camera the most since I can achieve from full length to head-and-shoulders crops.

EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM: Narrow depth of field and beautiful compression.

EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM: My secret weapon for super tight shots of eyes, lips, and face.

Accessories: Of course I always have extra cards, batteries and a backup hard drive with me on any shoot. For my studio shoots I also always shoot tethered into the computer so I can review my images as I capture them. For this reason I need a tether cable (to attach my camera to the computer) and TetherBlock to affix the cable to the camera for a more stable connection. Because I am photographing skin as well as saturated colors, I always have a grey card or a color checker to use as a neutral reference to achieve perfect white balance under any light and even to create custom color profiles. Last but not least, I need the radio trigger for my strobes that allow me to change the strobe output without having to touch the lights! It isn’t about having a lot of gear, but having the right gear for the job to bring my images to life!"

#BehindTheShot with #CanonExplorerOfLight @lindsayadler_photo: "One the greatest gifts as a photographer is the ability to create images that capture a special moment in a person’s life or immortalize a special relationship. This portrait is from an engagement session I shot for my amazingly beautiful friends. I created this image on a frigid winter day, and we wanted to grab a few outdoor shoots but to do so quickly! I scouted around the corner from my studio until I found this beautiful and cinematic looking natural light bouncing off of large white building, creating a soft and directional light source. Behind them was nothing more than a metal door, so I decided to shoot at a very wide aperture to kick it out of focus and to create a romantic and dream-like mood to the image. I chose the EF 85 f/1.4L for flattering compression and shot wide open at F/1.4 for a striking narrow depth of field that helped simplify the scene behind them. Thankfully the EOS R has Face Tracking and Eye Detection Autofocus to help me nail the focus on the Steve’s eye even at such a narrow depth of field. It allowed me to nail focus to get the image quickly before my subjects froze in the cold! This was one of their favorite images of the shoot! Congrats guys!"
