Quick and Easy Photography Tips with Lisa Wilkinson

Australian television presenter and journalist Lisa Wilkinson shares with us her top photography tips that are super easy for you to practice yourself.

How To Get In The Shot

Looking back at old photographs with the kids when they were young is a wonderful thing to do. But have you ever realised that you're not in any of them because you're always the one taking the shot? With the Canon Camera Connect App you can easily pair your smart phone with your camera, allowing you to make adjustments and remotely trigger the shutter. This means no one has to ever be left out of the shot again.

To replicate Lisa's setup you'll need: 

Canon Powershot G7X Mark III
Any tripod
• Your Smart Device (smartphone or tablet) connected to your camera via the Camera Connect App.

Finding The Right Light

I really like my food and often enjoy taking photos of a great looking meal. However sometimes the shots just don't do the food justice. That's when I discovered that getting the best results out of my food photography is all about finding the perfect light.

Lenses For Travel Photography

With travel restrictions easing in Australia just in-time for school holidays and Christmas, here are my go-to lenses that I always take with me on my travels. Using a variety of lenses with my EOS M6 Mark II ensures that I have the best angle of view for any situation I find myself in; from sweeping landscapes to close up shots of faraway objects.

EOS M6 Mark II
EF-M 15-45mm IS STM

Taking A Better Selfie With The PowerShot G7 X Mark III

One of my favourite compact cameras from Canon is the PowerShot G7 X Mark III. It’s small, fits in my handbag and is super handy for those moments when you want better quality than your smartphone. One of my favourite features of this camera is the 180 degree tilt-up touch screen, ensuring I always look my best before taking a selfie.

Using Your Canon Camera As A Webcam

Keeping in touch with family and friends whether they’re here in Australia or overseas is really important to me. For those situations where I can’t see my loved ones in person, its valuable still being able to make meaningful connections with quality catchups. This is where my Canon camera comes in handy as I can hook it up as an ultra-high-quality webcam using Canon’s free downloadable EOS Webcam Utility software. You can instantly see a significant improvement in video quality compared to using a built-in laptop camera. The Canon EOS Webcam Utility is my choice for video calls, knowing I can always rely on it to help me remain sharp and in focus when catching up with loved ones.

To replicate Lisa's setup you'll need: 

• EOS M6 Mark II
• Camera USB cable
Free downloadable Webcam Utility software
