Photographer Spotlight - Episode 14 @Stlbates

First of all, would you mind introducing yourself?

Hi my name is Colin Bates, I’m a 15-year-old photographer who lives in St.Louis MO


What equipment do you use for your photos?

I shoot with a t6 along with Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.4. I absolutely love this lens because it’s great for any kind of shoot and works extremely well in low light.


Do you have any favorite location to take pictures at?

The heart of St.Louis City is my current favorite place to shoot at due to the great architecture and streets. Hopefully, that changes over time as I get to travel more when I’m older.


What is your all-time favorite picture?

My favorite photo currently is this one mainly because of the bokeh and the depth of field. It’s so simple but yet has many colors that pull the eye in.
