One of our dispatch technicians, known as Chewett, is supporting her friend who is raising money for Parkinson’s Disease, by photographing the car he is using for a journey from London to Benidorm in aid of the charity Parkinson’s UK. Chewett is a self-confessed novice when it comes to being behind the lens, but she is always keen to get quirky shots whenever she can. Most comfortable with Canon, the EOS R was the perfect choice for this venture.
Over to Chewett…
I wanted to help my friend Tris by giving him some really good shots of the car, to keep and remember this event by. I have always enjoyed trying to get decent shots of cars, with an unusual style to them, but I have never had the camera to do so!
I wanted to try the Canon EOS R with the kit 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens as it is a very impressive new camera, but doesn’t overcomplicate things for a ‘dabbler’ amateur like myself. It was so easy to use yet still create images I’m really pleased with.
Being able to transfer the images straight to my phone was a huge help to, so thank you Canon for the app! The camera and lens combined were very light and the IS was fantastic.
I used the camera in auto mode throughout and all of these images are straight out of camera, with no tweaks in photoshop and I am really impressed with the results – both in terms of metering and colour rendition.
British racing driver Barry Lee’s signature, having met Tris at the Motorsport with Attitude show earlier this year, where Tris won third place with the car for ‘The Barry Lee Best in Show’.
Every hour, two people in the UK are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. If you would like to donate and support Tris’ fundraising road trip, you can find his Just Giving page, HERE.
