Check out what's in #CanonExplorerOfLight@tylerstableford's gear bag! | "When I am shooting ice climbing in the mountains, I aim to carry the minimal amount of equipment in my bags so that I can climb and keep up with the athletes — but it also needs to be the best gear that can capture the best images! The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III and the SanDisk 512gb Extreme Pro CFexpress cards are my go-tos for high-speed shooting. When I’m hanging on a rope photographing or filming a climber, I am not as mobile as I would be on the ground, so I use zoom lenses that let me reframe the scenes quickly. My favorite lenses are the 11-24mm f/4, 16-35mm f/2.8, 24-70mm f/2.8, and 70-200mm f/2.8. I’ll often leave one of the two widest lenses at the base, but I like to have both with me until I evaluate what the scenario will require. This photo shows a small portion of the climbing gear I bring on a shoot, including crampons, harness, ice tools, ascenders, rope, and a Garmin Inreach Mini for emergencies and satellite texts (fortunately I’ve only had to use it for texting with my family when out of cell range). My camera gear all goes in my trusted Think Tank Photo Speed Racer 2 shoulder bag, which I can wear buckled on my hip or slung around my shoulder for quick access; and it doesn’t obstruct my harness. The rest of the climbing equipment goes on my harness."
Photo by #Can#Can#CanonExplorerOfLight@jer@jeremycowart | “Digital photography gets better and better. Cameras get more and more reliable and consistent. The quality is insane. But reliability and consistency can also make an artist like me really bored. I’m always dreaming of ways to figure out how to make digital photography weird and unpredictable without having to rely on heavy post-production. I’m certainly a Photoshop user but I try to only use it when absolutely necessary like light skin retouching. Nothing else.
So when I was hired to create this image for an album package, the artist wanted something ethereal… something that looked like it was from another planet. For some reason my mind went to a place of him being submerged in another world… liquid or bubbles almost.
So I had the idea to use the TTV technique which means “through the viewfinder” to shoot through an old waist-level viewfinder camera that I found online. Here’s the fun part: I wanted the lens to bubble up on the viewfinder camera so I set it on fire. I literally took a lighter to the lens in my kitchen and let the old vintage glass burn a little bit and burn and bubble up. The effect was exactly what I was hoping for.
Then on our actual photoshoot, I took my Canon EOS 1DX Mark II and a 100mm 2.8 macro lens and I stood high on a ladder so that I could lean over and photograph the artist with my Canon DSLR through the burned vintage camera.
I had just one light with a large octabank lighting him from the left and wha-la. Some light RAW processing later and there ya have it. No textures added or photoshop work done.” .

Nature and urban environments were my playgrounds. It taught me to make quick decisions & to find magic in the mundane. This early experience paved the way for me as a location fashion photographer. Understandably, these editorial or commercial shoots can be quite fast paced - time is always of the essence. To help me make quick decisions and avoid switching lenses in busy environments - I often use a zoom lens." Camera: #Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

"This was shot in March 2017. Because of all the rain earlier in the year, this area that previously had been pretty dry, was filled with water again. So it was nice to see and capture this! I stood at this spot for close to 2 hours waiting for this shot. There were so many people walking around that area and I needed a good 20-30 seconds to be able to capture the serenity of this place. Everything came together so nicely. Definitely so proud of this image!" #MyCanonStory
