He’s been shooting for over a decade, picking up a Canon EOS 1000D as his first DSLR and progressing later to a 5D Mark III.

RAW POWER WE WENT into the settings of Colin’s EOS R and set it to shoot CR3 Raw files, as these will contain loads more exposure information than simple JPEGs, and you need as much data as possible to play with when shooting in poorly lit conditions. We also switched off any image stabilization on his lenses…
