I upgraded from the M50 to R6, and want to make the most out of the new camera.
I am a beginner photographer and only ever play with the ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. I mostly take pictures of people, events, and food.
Are there concepts or guides I should read about? What will I be able to do (that I wasn't able to do with M50)?
I have the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II that I'll be using with the adapter.
Anything helps, thank you!
You need to understand the basics of photography. If you bought a piano, you would not be able to use it effectively if you did not understand the basics of music. This is a link to series of videos released by Canon USA several years ago. It is aimed at absolute beginners using a Rebel camera.
The principles of photography are the same for every camera.
As seeking further education in those and other areas. The first thing I would recommend is checking out the on-line catalogue of your library. Look for an e-learning resource called LinkedIn Learning. If you can find it, that gives you free access via your library log-on credentials to what would normally be a fairly costly site that has extensive resources on a wide range of subject - including photography. Do a search for photography and check out the topics. They cover everything from the basics to advanced techniques for studio work and post production. The material is presented in a very professional manner by skilled photographers and educators.
The other obvious source is YouTube. There is a huge range of tutorials on the R6, and on its applications. There are also topics covering food and people photography.
I have a couple of R6 cameras, although I use them mostly for shooting other subjects - in particular wildlife where the IBIS and eye tracking are hugely beneficial.
In general, you will gain advantages with your R6 at the wider angle end because you are using a full-frame camera, and that also is a bonus for noise and lower light performance. Your M50 has a crop sensor body that meant that what it captured was reduced from what the values on the lens suggested. So a 15-45mm EF-M lens would actually render 24-72mm, but also the apertures would be impacted too. So you have gained a lot for your food photography by going Full Frame - you can isolate subjects more and get in closer.
