This week, we answer a listener question about the future of DSLRs. Given the overwhelming trend towards mirrorless cameras by all of the major camera manufacturers, it’s a good time to ask whether there’s a future for DSLRs.

We’ll also discuss alternative approaches to creating multiple exposures, both in-camera and with Photoshop.

Silhouettes and Negative Space; New Mirrorless Gear from Canon

This week, Canon announced three new mirrorless lenses, and a new flagship mirrorless camera body. The Canon EOS R3 is a pro-style body that will be capable of 30 fps stills, and uses an all-new sensor developed by Canon.

Canon also announced a 400mm f/2.8, 600mm f/4, and 100mm f/2.8 macro lens for their mirrorless mount. While the 400 and 600mm lenses are optically identical to existing Canon telephotos, the new 100mm macro lens offers 1.4x magnification and a spherical aberration control ring.

We also discuss the creative use of silhouettes and negative space as a creative technique in photography. We explore how to create these types of images both in your camera and with post-processing.
