Sony A7r II – Focus Testing w/ 24-105mm f/4 L IS Lens – Sample Photos

Sony A7r II – Focus Testing w/ 24-105mm f/4 L IS Lens – Sample Photos | Sony Photography You Must Check Out!! | Scoop.it
Hey guys! In this quick video I will test the new Sony A7r II w/ my older Metabones III lens adapter and my killer Canon EF 24-105 f/4 L IS Lens. Specific to this video, I will test speed of the center focus mode, Eye AF, and Continuous AF mode (AF-C) for focus tracking purposes and a hit rate test using speed priority shooting mode w/ a moving subject. My Dad was more than willing to help me and is always fun to work with :) I was using a tri-pod and really tried my best to illustrate the focus

SAL Photography Challenge #9 - Water - Page 2 | Sony Photography You Must Check Out!! | Scoop.it

Closing out the summer with August I figure it will be a great month to see what we can all do with the theme "water" for this challenge.


The goal of of this challenge in particular, is to apply the skills learned in previous challenges to capture water in new and creative ways. The standard shots will also work, don't get me wrong, but we have explored many photography elements which should help bring new dynamics to this challenge I'm thinking.

At The Fair | Sony Photography You Must Check Out!! | Scoop.it
Went to the fair last night while on vacation here in Bemidji MN. First shot shows what the ride looks like, second is 8 second exposure, third is 15 sec. Taken with a7r using Zeiss 24-70 lens. I like the effects of the long exposures. Enjoy!

Lantern Festival

Lantern Festival | Sony Photography You Must Check Out!! | Scoop.it
The Missouri Botanical Garden is having a fantastic show of Chinese lanterns this summer. Photographers' Night was a few days ago, which is the only time tripods are allowed. A big crew of artisans comes over from China and spends weeks setting up 22 beautiful displays. If you are in or near St Louis from now until August 23, this is well worth taking time to see. I'm posting a few images here. A link to my 67-image album on Google + is below:

Damselfly

Damselfly | Sony Photography You Must Check Out!! | Scoop.it

I couldn't figure out name of this damselfly, but i got lucky shooting it.
It landed in front of me just long enough for macro lens to focus (loooooong time) and 4 shoots at 8fps. This was last shot in series, all other ones had soft eye.

Brody - FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Lens | Sony Photography You Must Check Out!! | Scoop.it
We celebrated Layla's 5th Birthday yesterday at our family's house that is much better than ours for hosting parties ;) Everybody had a fantastic time and my buddy Brody was looking like he really needed his photo taken! Love this dog and he was not doing so well a few weeks ago. It was a scare and I'm so happy he is feeling better again. Something with his little heart is not 100%...

The lens performed killer optically, but the auto focus was struggling a bit more than I was expecting on

Coins of the world | Sony Photography You Must Check Out!! | Scoop.it
I was thinking if there was enough people who are willing to post up photo's of the coins in their part of the works.
That a section could be made up for it and maybe in Specialised Photos in a sub forum if that is the right word for it.
I know I have got a few coins that may or might not have been seen by some and it would be good to share what they look like for others.
Its only a thought and you might as well see if it can be done instead of saying it will never be done.

My best four legged friend Bones Jones Hermann is finally coming into his own and is such a great dog! He is very happy, loves pets, is super lazy, and looks like a cartoon character almost. gotta love em ;) I took this photo a few days ago with my Sony A7r and killer Minolta 50mm f/1.4 Rokkor-X Lens... I then converted to BW in Lightroom using the green filter preset for detail, and then added some clarity and Vignette.

Hey guys! It's been a little while since I received my camera but I haven't had much time to fully test it out. However, I still wanted to share with you guys some of the quick shots that I have taken around my office etc. As some of you might know from following me on G+ that I absolutely love black and white shots so most of these are going to be monochrome. I am planning on sharing more soon of maybe the sunrise at the beach or some other location so you can see the quality of color that

In this next challenge we the awesome fireworks celebrations happening around the world, and this can require some special settings on the camera to get the best possible results. The Sony cameras have a fireworks mode that works well, but you can also use manual mode and take total control of the exposure yourself! It's time to get out the tri-pod and switch to the M mode on your camera for this next challenge!
