Canon R5/R6 Lightning Fast Eye Detection Targeting For Group Photos Tutorial


Face detection is a incredible tool for portrait and wedding photographers. Many shooters however run into problems when shooting group photos, when wanting to direct it to a specific individual of the group. As good as the face/eye detection algorithm is, it will not know which person you want to get it dialed in on, unless you we tell it specifically. This is the lighting fast eye/face detection technique I recommend, with 3 backup plans just in case the first doesn't work.
