What Sets Professional Photographers Apart

Canon‘s recent ad shows what sets professional photographers apart and likens their obsession over the minutest details to their new top of the line photo printer. Taking 3 subjects, including commercial photographer Joel Grimes, and using eye-tracking technology on them as they survey a photo printed using the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000, the difference in the results of their eye movements are quite amazing. Although it’s no surprise that trained photographers have a specialized skillset including poring over details others might gloss over, this video lays everything out in plain sight and offers an enlightening perspective on what makes photographers a special breed.
