I wanted to share with you how I setup my new Canon EOS R5 as a commercial studio photographer. My last camera was a 5DIV, so this video will take a deep-dive into the settings and features of the first Canon professional mirrorless camera and how it compares to its DSLR predecessor.
I got to play with my new camera on a Portrait shoot and the new eye and face detection auto focus rocks!
When the topic of light meters comes up, many photographers are surprised to learn that I used them. While TTL and trial and error can be an effective way to nail an exposure, nothing can be more effective than manually and precisely dialing in your lights before fine tuning them on screen.
When I was just starting out in photography, I really looked up to other photographers who had a lot more experience, because I realized right away that when you looked at their work, you could easily recognize that it was their work, because they had a sense of style.
