Canon x on a hazy morning

Do you remember our trip to Istanbul in December? The project that was all covered in mystery and which we have been so excited about? 

Well, we are thrilled to finally reveal what we’ve been secretly working on over the last few months… We’ve been working with Canon; On a hazy morning is part of the advertising campaign for the new camera EOS M3!! 

For this campaign we went to beautiful Istanbul for almost a week where we had the chance to photograph and film with this camera, while we were exploring the colourful streets of this interesting Turkish metropole. During our explorations we were followed by a film- and photography crew and today we can finally share the video and imagery with you!

But first of all a little bit more about the camera; the Canon EOS M3 is a compact system camera and can be paired with a range of changeable lenses. With a special mount adapter you can even use other Canon lenses. In our work as photographers we shoot with 5D cameras and lenses of the L-series, which we could also use on the EOS M3. For example; we’ve tried the 50mm f/1.2 lens on the EOS M3 camera while filming and we were so impressed with the results; super crisp quality with a beautiful and dreamy depth of field. We like that!

As lifestyle and travel photographers we are often shooting pretty street scenes. Architecture, details of a city, but also people and their styles. With this compact camera it’s easy to take candid shots, especially because of it’s size, the fact that you can tilt the screen up and down and control several functions using the touch screen.

Of course we can easily write for another hour about all great features, but it’s much more fun to watch the video and check out the photos of our trip! Enjoy!

On the Canon website you can find more about our trip to Istanbul, as well as the camera specs.

Also, did you know about the Canon's Come and See initiative? Come and See is all about capturing stories that unfold around us, every day. Here you can find inspiration and learn about techniques. 

We really enjoyed working with Canon and the amazing crew on this project. It was a great experience to explore the streets of Istanbul, we'll definitely go back one day!
