Travel Photography with the Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless Camera: Exploring Italy

Traipsing through Via Orvieto at dusk

Dusk caught up with me in the medieval town of Orvieto, where I was strolling with the EOS M6 slung behind my back. I didn’t have a tripod at the time, so I had to use my widest available aperture and an ISO setting of 640 to get a shutter speed for sharper images. I then relied on the EF-M15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens’ Image Stabilization function to give me this sharp handheld image.

A street artist showcases his creativity

Travel photography is also about observing your surroundings. I was fascinated by this street artist who created replicas of classic paintings using coloured chalks. I figured an overhead shot that showed his open-air workshop along with the audience’s feet would illustrate the casual nature of his work. I simply zoomed out the EF-M11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens to its widest focal length, and flipped the EOS M6’s moveable LCD screen so I could shoot with my arm above me.
