The Fives Project - Ej Estapa Photography

The Fives Project aims to create stunning images
using  a Canon 5D  and only a 50mm lens.  


The Canon 5D released in 2005 at a cost of about $3000 is a 12 megapixel full frame DSLR known for excellent image quality.  The 50mm lens is a commonly used lens considered to most closely match the focal length of the human eye.  The camera and lens were purchased for about $425 in 2016 on Ebay.

The project objective is to challenge myself by relying on older technology with a focus on composition and content.
