the Balkans

Short travel doc about a 3-week trip to the Balkans. Shot entirely on a Canon EOS 1D X mk.II and by using only one lens (Canon 24-105mm f/3.5 – 5.6 IS STM). The challenge I took on was to only shoot hand-held, and only in full-auto mode. Everything was set to automatic: auto-white, auto-iso, auto-iris, auto-focus. Wait, autofocus? Yes, indeed. Throughout the whole shoot, I never touched the focus ring, not even once. And it worked out surprisingly well!
