A Glimpse Through the Canon 5D Mark IV with Mike Cohen

We asked Mike Cohen to test out the new Canon 5D Mark IV and give us a glimpse at what it is truly capable of and he didn’t dissapoint! Here are a sampling of shots using the 5D Mark IV during his last trip:

 

alberta-falls
Alberta Falls: Alberta Falls is located within Rocky Mountain National Park and can be reached via an easy uphill hiking trail. This image is a composite of a shot metered for the sky, and another for the foreground. I arrived after spending the morning shooting elk so by the time I reached the falls there were plenty of people on the rocks. I removed them in Photoshop to avoid their distracting bright jackets.
aspen-abstract
Aspen Abstract: This was taken in Colorado along one of the County Roads near Ridgeway, Colorado. I zoomed the lens while exposing the picture then removed distracting elements and did some other post production work to enhance the colors and symmetry of the image.
bugling-elk-in-field
Bugling Elk in Field: It was difficult to isolate the males as they were keeping track of their females or trying to attract those from another male’s herd. I liked the contrast of the elk against the grass in this field. I needed a higher ISO which the Mark IV handled well.
lighthouse-at-dawn
Lighthouse at Dawn: To get to the vantage point where this shot was taken requires wading through some salt water and risking splashes from the waves. This is a favorite spot of mine, close to home. I return to both sides of the inlet to shoot this lighthouse frequently. Here, I sued the bridge and lights, which are normally a distraction, as part of the composition.
path-through-the-aspens
Path through the Aspens: This was in a stand of aspens near Estes Park, Colorado. The prime colors had already passed and the wind was knocking down the leaves at a fast pace. As a result, the leaves decorated this path into the forest nicely.
