Natural Light Portraits - Canon EOS 200D Retrospective


I’m coming across a host of photographs that I shot on my little Canon 200D last year, and just like my previous post, I’ll be sharing a few of those photo-shoots with you over the next few weeks. Some landscapes, some portraits, and perhaps fo few alternative or experimental shots too. Also, in-between all the retrospective blog posts, I will be sharing current work as well - mostly shot with my Sony A7-III which I am really enjoying right now.


While the A7-III is leaps and bounds ahead of the 200D, I feel the “smallest and best enthusiast’s DSLR” from Canon is severely underrated. I’m really glad I made the [educated] decision to buy that camera when I did, and then use it to pull myself back into the types of photography I always loved so much, but had somehow lost along the way. Cropped sensor cameras are not to be discounted, and for hobbyist or semi-professional photographers, they’re great value, and a whole lot of fun to play around with and create images you will be proud of for years to come.


I could waffle on about how much I loved that camera for ages, but long story short I liked it a lot but it was time for me to move on. I’d outgrown what it could do for me, and in order to push myself to the next level I think I just needed a new level of camera. A change in arms if you will. New tools for a bigger fight.

Anyway, as mentioned, I’ll be sharing a few of my 200D shots, until I quite literally run out. And since I didn’t blog all that much in 2018, I have stacks of images to share that nobody’s seen before. I’m looking forward to 2019 and sharing some more of my work with the world.

Below are a few natural light portraits shot with my old Canon, and a “nifty-fifty” 50mm f/1.8 lens. Some of these were posted to Instagram during the course of last year, but I thought it would be nice to share a few here as well. Here’s the link to the Facebook album if you’d prefer to see them there.


And that’s it…
