What’s Your Next First

- With the introduction of the Canon EOS M50 I didn't only get to see one photographer use them, but three of them. And although none of them might be exactly my style they show perfectly what this camera is capable of and that's a lot. From wide angle nature shots to intimate portraits, the use of light and depth of field. This might sound super nerdy to people who don't work with cameras on a daily basis but I love how crisp the colours are and how soft some of the shadows come across.... but enough of the details and back to the three photographers who tested the Canon EOS M50.
- Each of them focused on a different topic and person. Under the theme " What's Your Next First" they all got to pick a person who did something for the first time and documented that journey using Canon EOS M50. Incredible shots, even more touching stories and I now desperately want to test that camera myself. I picked my favourite shots and linked all the photographers and talents at the end of this article if you want to check them out later.
- While writing this post I also got to think about what I would have done as my "next first". One of my biggest goals for the past years has been having my own exhibition / photo book. I already have a portrait project, there are already more than 100 portraits shot but for some reason I haven't gotten around to the next step. Mainly because I'm super critical with every photo, always think that it could have been done better and want to photograph more people to somehow reach a higher level. But I know myself I will never be 100% happy with any result. For this exhibition to ever happen I either need a deadline or someone who pushes me there.
But enough about me. I hope you have a little insight on this camera now, and especially on what kind of photos you can take with it. I've also added a video on my favourite photographer of the three mentioned. It explains how the images were shot, who the talent is and you also get to see the camera in use. I especially loved to see how small and compact it is. For some reason I imagined it much larger by just seeing the product photos and was positively surprised. As I've been looking for a smaller camera for when I travel, this might actually be the right option. Canon if you read this... I'd be happy to try the Canon EOS M50 myself!
