#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." Camera: #Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Lens: EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Aperture: f/4 ISO: 640 Shutter Speed: 1/160 sec

"Peek a boo!! I was at an alpaca farm for an event, and this guy was a little bit confused about what I was doing. He happened to be munching on some grass when he decided to take a look!" #MyCanonStory Photo Credit: @roswell_photo Camera: #Canon EOS 70D Lens: EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Aperture: f/1.8 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/5000 sec Focal Length: 50mm

#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!"

"Patiently waited through a cold night to experience the sunrise. Stepped out of my tent and was happy to see the sun appear and provide some warmth.
