When I ask my cycling buddies to post group ride photos to our team Flickr pool, they complain that Flickr isn’t user friendly, it’s to hard, yada yada yada. Yeah, Flickr could definitely use some UX love. But then they start comparing Flickr to Instagram. OK, maybe you have a Facebook account and like to waste inordinate amounts of time on social media. Good for you. But as a photo sharing resource? Continue reading “Flickr vs Instagram”
I know I’ve gone on and on about this before, but the resolution, quality and detail in the image files coming off of the Sony A7RII blow my mind every time I work with them. Continue reading “incredible detail”
I am still so blown away by the capabilities of this camera, by the sheer amount of detail. Shooting with a 50mm prime feels like you have the resolving power of the hubble telescope, only hand-held. Continue reading “Sony A7RII + Canon Glass”
I met recently with my friend Zubair outside of Tout de Sweet cafe (best espresso and pastries in the area!) to compare a few lenses against my A7RII camera body and his new A6000 camera body. This was a series of lens tests to roughly compare the following lenses:
- Sony Zeiss Sonnar® T* E 24 mm F1.8 ZA
- Sony kit zoom lens, E 18–200mm F3.5–6.3 OSS Zoom (SEL18200)
- Canon 50mm 1.2L using the Metabones IV adapter
I convinced a friend of mine to jump on getting a Sony A6000 as this is, in the opinion of more than a few pro photographers, currently the single best value camera on the market. His next question, naturally, was “what lens do I get for this camera?” Continue reading “I’m getting a Sony APS-C mirrorless camera – what should my first lens be?”
If I could get a copy or what you shot – one way or another (flickr, Dropbox, etc.) that would be great. Sometimes I find that even ‘not so great’ shots / blurry etc. can be cropped or adjusted to make for a cool photo.
Hi <redacted>, just a quick note –
screen cast of my iOS photography post workflow. For details see the previous post.
One of the awesome features of the Sony A7R II is WiFi – I can connect my iPhone to the camera and download images right away. So I actually have two different Post workflows. Continue reading “post process – from camera to iPhone to Mac”
The day I got my DSLR, many years ago, I took a bunch of test shots having no clue what I was doing. One of those shots I have always considered my best photo, ever, even though it was totally random and lucky. As of yesterday, that shot has been replaced as my favorite shot ever, with an image I took with my iPhone 4S.
