eos m200 offers 4k video for mirrorless newbies

Canon has announced the EOS M200, a upgraded version of its beginner-orientated EOS M100. It’s not a huge upgrade over its predecessor, but there is one headline new feature: 4K video capability. The design of the M200 is very much like the existing EOS M100 – you’d have trouble telling them apart from the outside. There’s no viewfinder, but there is a flip-up selfie touchscreen display at the back. It’s designed to be an easy camera to use, and doesn’t even have a mode dial – instead, most of the control happens via the touchscreen display. The EOS M200 uses a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, like many of Canon’s consumer-level models, and takes the company’s EOS-M mirrorless lenses. The standard kit lens is the Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, which has image…

capture family portraits

For decades, family portraits have enjoyed pride of place in many homes. Whether it’s to mark an important family milestone or to document the arrival of the newest member of the family, nothing immortalises the occasion better than a beautifully framed photograph – and for photographers, this is a perfect opportunity to cash in. Families are willing to invest good money in top-quality portraits, which makes it a really enticing genre for any photographer looking to either earn some extra cash on the side or to start up their own bespoke family photography business. Profitability aside, family photography can also be incredibly rewarding. Nothing beats the feeling of seeing your client’s face light up when they see their photos for the first time, and knowing that those images will be treasured…

pick a location

When it comes to capturing family photography there are two main options for shoot locations. The first is to set up in a photography studio using flash lighting, and the other is to head outdoors on location. There are pros and cons to both options, and it’s important to know what these are before choosing one over the other. A studio setting is usually what springs to mind when you think of family photography, as it tends to be the most common choice. An indoor location allows you to shoot all year round, and using artificial lighting affords you total creative control for added flexibility. You will, however, need to invest in a set of studio lights and potentially a photographic backdrop too, if you want to achieve that high-quality studio…

choose your kit

It’s important to make sure that you have the right equipment for the job. Obviously you’re going to need a DSLR or mirrorless camera that’s capable of producing high-resolution images, and you’re going to need to pair it with a suitable portrait lens; a 50mm lens or longer is ideal, as it’ll produce minimise distortions. You may also need to invest in a wide-angle lens, for situations where you’re required to photograph large groups of people – a 35mm lens is a good choice here, as it’s wide enough to cram more people into the frame, but not so wide that you start to suffer the effects of barrel distortion at the edges of the frame. If you’re looking to create studio-style imagery then think about investing in a set of…

flash or no flash?

As most family shoots will take place during the day, flash is only normally required when you’re shooting in a studio, or outside when you want to create a more studio-like aesthetic by using off-camera flash. Shooting with your flash on-camera and pointed straight at your subject will create harsh lighting that’s unflattering, so avoid doing this unless you have some form of light diffuser that you can attach to soften the light significantly.…
