Event Photos: Antioch West Church Service and Potluck – July 23, 2017

I recently was blessed with the opportunity to upgrade my photography equipment. I upgraded from the Canon 40D to the 80D and bought a few new lenses: Canon 18-135mm/3.5-5.6 IS USM, Canon 200mm/2.8L and the Canon 85mm/1.8.

I love the large aperture on the primes which makes them work really well for indoor event photography. The zoom seems like a good all-around lens, and eventually I hope to obtain its companion external servo unit to try it out for video.

It felt right for the new camera’s first assignment to be photographing a church service. I enjoyed running around and trying to capture the service from all angles. The battery grip and 128 GB memory card eliminated any worries of running out of battery or storage space.

The new camera does require a new post-processing workflow, however, as Lightroom 4 does not support the 80D’s raw format. I installed Canon Digital Photo Professional 4 and the other free utility software applications for the camera. I use DPP4 for culling the images to determine which images should be discarded, which images should be stored but ignored, and which are worth sharing. While I previously ignored the Canon software, I admit that it works well enough and it’s a little faster than Lightrooom.

After identifying the outstanding photos, I either stay in DPP4 and do rapid editing and export to JPEG, or I copy best images to a child folder and use Adobe DNG Converter to convert the CR2 files to DNG. After it finally finishes, I add the files to Lightroom and do the cropping and levels tweaking and export to JPEG from there. I haven’t figured out how to use DPP4 to copy selected RAW files to a folder, so I open the Batch Processing dialog and take a snapshot of the listed file names, and manually select and copy the files in Windows Explorer.
