Be enchanted by Italy – as seen through the lens of photojournalist Lester Ledesma’s Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera.
I’ve been using Canon’s DSLR cameras for travel photography for over 14 years but recently had the pleasure of shooting with the EOS M6, Canon’s latest pocket-sized power shooter, during a trip to Italy. Backed by these razor-sharp EF-M lenses – the EF-M11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM and the EF-M15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM – I captured the historic charm of southern and central Italy with this lightweight shooting kit.

A new dawn at Piazza del Plebiscito
In the heart of Naples, Piazza del Plebiscito buzzes with activity for most of the day. Hoping to capture a quieter photo of this famous landmark, I visited the area early in the morning when its main building was catching the first rays of sunshine. The EOS M6 accurately metered the scene’s contrast lighting, but I opted to underexpose by 1/3 of a stop to give me a moodier scene.
