Photographing a Conference

Last month I photographed a conference down in Austin, TX.  In this video, I offer several tips for photographing conferences.

For this conference, I was using a 5D Mark IV, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II, 16-35mm f4L IS, and a 24-105mm f4L IS.  Because I was traveling, I didn’t bring a full-sized second camera as a backup.  Instead, I packed the very portable Canon SL1.  It stayed in my backpack for the whole trip, but it did its job of providing peace-of-mind.  On paid jobs, you always want to have extra gear in case something goes wrong with your primary camera.
