Fashion, dance and portrait photographer Sascha Hüttenhain is renowned for getting the killer shot. His ability to merge precision with creative flair, as well as a willingness to co-create visually with his models, has brought him great commercial success, while ensuring his artistic visions are consistently realised. He's also not afraid to experiment, regularly shooting in a range of environments.
To test the capabilities of the Canon RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM lens for shooting outdoor fashion portraits, Sascha chose two dramatically contrasting locations: a stark urban landscape of pillars, steps and concrete buildings; and an atmospheric forest near his home, which he discovered while walking his dog.
"I like contrast and also settings and subjects that complement each other and harmonise together, and this was the case with both locations. Although they were different, they were appropriate for the fashion theme," he explains.
Here, Sascha discusses his motivations behind the shoots, and how the Canon RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM lens, together with the Canon EOS R5, enabled him to achieve his goals, while Mark Fensome, Canon Europe Product Marketing Specialist, explains how the lens was developed and its many technical capabilities.
