Atago Shrine Fire Festival – The Process

  6.12.2018   Alik   Blog, Photo Tips   No comments

Once a year, at the temple Agato in Fukuoka Japan, visitors gather together to begin the celebration of the coming new year in an annual fire festival.

A tradition with a series of rituals rooted in Shintoism and celebrated by both the Buddhists and Shintos of Japan.

To photograph this event, I used the Canon R with the 24-105mm f4L and processed the photos with Lightroom. I’ll also share you some tips and tricks and the mental process I use to produce these photos.

Canon EOS R | Just About Everyone Got It Wrong

I’ve read and watched most reviews of the Canon EOS R, and man, what an echo chamber. The online review game has gotten really lazy.

If you didn’t know any better, you would think the Canon EOS R is a complete failure and a disaster, especially when you compare it to a similarly priced Sony A7III.

I’ve been shooting with the EOS R for a few weeks now dissecting its performance and capabilities so that I can share with you all the pros and cons of this camera and how it compares to my beloved Sony A7rIII.

In the meantime, here is what just about every camera review got wrong!

Best Memory Cards Canon EOS R

The Canon EOS R is no slouch when it comes to data output. With 8fps continuous burst shooting speeds the Canon R can produce a RAW image data stream of  more than 250Mbps and it doesn’t stop there. Video specs are very data heavy with 4k video having an output of 480Mbps and 1080p video have 180Mbps.

To get the full benefit of the amazing data output, it may be a good idea to buy the fastest memory card for the Canon EOS R, but the card you buy will depend on how you plan on using the camera.

Use this guide to find the best memory card for your Canon EOS R.

Did Canon Just Win? 3 Reasons Why I Think So!

As the mirrorless Armageddon comes to a head, it looks like Canon just dropped the most advanced camera we’ve ever seen. Period. Undeniable. I’m talking about the Camera itself, not the engine inside which still has plenty of horsepower.

It might not be a spec god, but the camera is unlike anything we’ve ever seen from anyone. It really is doing so many things I love and is taking advantage of technology that you would expect to see in a Playstation controller or a Nintendo Switch or something.

Let me share a few things I think are incredible. Then I’ll point out the obvious bad things that are triggering people.

The Canon EOS R specs are out. If you weren’t satisfied with the screeching and raging of the Youtubers and bloggers with the Nikon Z cameras, you’re really going to love this one. 

Single SD card slot, not even UHS-II, no IBIS, no joystick.

Why does Canon do this? Why can’t anybody seem to compete with Sony?

I’ll tell you why.
