C., gave me a tremendous appreciation for the craftsmanship of the statues and paintings on the walls and ceilings, as well as for the dedication of the artists to Lord Buddha. This photograph of a water monitor, photographed with my Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM set at 100mm, is the result of all of the above.

When it comes to storytelling, we need to take wide-angle and close-up photographs.

This wide-angle photograph, taken at ISO 10,000 with my Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, captures the entire scene – the Hindu priest interacting with the wives against a beautiful background.

Yes, the camera did get splashed a bit, but I was not worried, because the 5D Mark IV offers improved weather sealing.

Still, I ran out of the water as fast as possible and gave my camera and lens a good wipe-down ASAP.

This photograph illustrates one of my most useful photo tips: Use your camera like a drone.

To get this shot, which clearly shows the offerings by the women, I held my camera above the subjects, and used Live View to compose the scene.

In this article I’ll share with you some of my favorite photographs and experiences from my recent trip to Sri Lanka – a magical destination – documented with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

The photograph of Sri Lanka stick fishermen near the city of Galle that opens this article is my favorite image from this sojourn.

So my advice for photographers is this: Make it fun for everyone and you will have a more memorable experience. Here I am showing the fishermen – using the flip-though feature and pinch-zoom feature on the camera’s touchscreen – my photographs from the photo session.
