#BehindTheShot with #CanonExplorerOfLight @susanstriplingphotography: "As a wedding photographer, you have to be ready for ANYTHING. As a NYC wedding photographer, you have to be ready for anything then some: crowds, crazy weather, difficult logistics, small spaces, the list goes on and on. At this sweet elopement, the bride and groom wanted some pictures with the vintage taxicab that they rented for their day. It was getting dark, and there wasn’t enough ambient light to really illuminate the couple inside the cab. I wedged a gridded Speedlite in between the seats of the cab and used it to light the couple’s faces, separating them from the background and making them really stand out against the dramatic scene."

#BehindTheShot with #CanonExplorerOfLight @ricksammonphotography: "Photographing in the rain forest is a challenge. It’s very hot and humid and . . . often raining. Finding and photographing subjects, hidden by leaves and surrounded by branches, is another challenge. What’s more, it’s often dark, even on sunny days, under the canopy of the tall trees and thick vines - and the subjects are usually back lit. And let’s not forget the fire ants, mosquitos and venomous snakes. I made this photograph in the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, called by National Geographic the most biological intense places on the planet. One of my goals on a recent trip was to make a natural-light photograph of one of the rain forest’s coolest critters - the red eye tree frog. Getting down on eye-level, watching the background, and seeing eye-to-eye and shooting eye-to-eye, I made my shot (exposing for the highlights) - just before a torrential downpour!"

@charlesglatzer's #whatsinmybag: "What camera equipment do you recommend?" is always one of the first questions I receive from someone inquiring about a workshop. As I head to Yellowstone I thought I'd show you what gear I'm taking and why I chose it.

My primary cameras for wildlife are the 1DX Mark II; offering me the best balance of image quality, drive speed, buffer rate, AF acquisition/tracking, weather sealing, ease of customization, functionality and ergonomics. I use two similar bodies when working a field, with different lenses attached to quickly choose the desired focal length. Most often I bring an additional full frame camera like the EOS R with higher megapixels, and less vibration for more detail oriented imagery like landscapes, star/milky way, macro, etc. Additionally, the EF EOS R converter allows me to use all of my canon lenses without any loss whatsoever of AF function. I always bring at least one extra battery per camera with me when shooting. In winter I keep the batteries readily accessible in an insulated jacket pocket. A cable release is used for static imagery, requiring slower shutter speeds. If I could only take one lens for wildlife photography it would be the new EF 600 III, with EF 1.4x and 2x III converters. When hiking a field overall weight is always a consideration, traveling on my side the tack sharp EF 100-400 II a perfect accompaniment to the 600mm. The outstanding RF 24-105 and EF 16-35 III lenses cover my wide angle needs. I typically have at least one Speedlight and Wireless Transmitter with me for supplemental lighting. Never know, eh!
