Documenting Ever-changing Landscapes

Photography is one of the most powerful visual experiences that can evoke emotions and tell a story. Taking a photo can help capture the beauty and fragility of space that we live in. The Canon EOS M50 is a good size and weight, and the EVF AF active trackpad focus allows you to quickly switch points. It is a camera that is fun to use, responsive and efficient in getting the job done.

When shooting a landscape photo, focus on the space and how to best photograph it. Take into consideration factors such as the time of the day, weather and light conditions.

Shooting Intimate Portraits

Shooting a portrait is about trying to capture the personality of the subject.

Do not be afraid to approach people and always be there with them as the moments in their life unfolds. To do so, start by finding a common baseline or conversation topic and build the relationship from there.

Your subjects dictate the story and how the images turn out. In order to capture the nostalgia, observe your subjects and capture their moments.

Identify The Moment

To identify the moments to capture, the rule of thumb is to familiarise yourself with the space or patterns and be as unobtrusive as possible.
