I’m an unashamed Canon photographer. But I’m not some kind of Canon evangelist either. I’ve owned pretty much every early model type of Canon starting with the EOS650, through the EOI1 and EOS5. Then on to the 10D, 5D and 1D series. I’ve always used them so thats why I use them now. I’m sure if I were shooting on Nikon my images would be just the same. The make f camera doesn’t make me who I am.
My current cameras are the 5D Mark II and Mark III. I have two of the Mark II’s but only use two cameras in my main kit. One camera is configured just for shooting video. I shoot mainly using prime lenses. My favourite combo being the 35mm and the 85mm. I love the 35mm so much that about 2/3 of my shots at weddings are done with that lens. If were to take one camera, one lens for a job it would be the 5D3 and the 35mm.
Some people might wonder why I have the non-’L’ version on the 85mm lens. Well I did have the 85 1.2L Mark II but it just too heavy, too slow and to be honest the 5D Mark II really struggled with the autofocus. The non L version is light, fast and super sharp so it does me.
It’s also worth pointing out that I use Live View an awful lot at weddings. Quite often using a loupe on the back of the camera and manual focus. I just love using Live View. I can compose images much better, the exposure is always spot on and the images are guaranteed in focus. I get better images and spend less time processing.
What I love photographing is people, specifically children. Child Portraiture is a genre that I can honestly say I do well in. There is an art to portraiture that is more than just lighting, cameras and post production. It’s taken me a long time to learn what that is.
I love photographing weddings. I don’t get bored at them. Photographing a wedding for me is a day off. I get to take pictures all day and I don’t have to worry about business or anything else. It’s a pleasure!
