    • Post in Share Your Favorite Floral Photo Challenge
      Hi all,

      I live into the country in Texas. Spring time is flower heaven here. I tend to capture lots of flowers just because they are some of the best things to photograph on my property. The challenge for me is capturing a flower so that it's not just another flower picture. I want it to be interesting. 

      Hope you all enjoy these!

  • Product Highlight - Alpha 9 III

    • Thank you Patrick for another great article! Always nice to hear from fellow sports shooters how they are adapting with the new technology.
    • Four Sony Alpha Cameras Get Huge Firmware Updates and C2PA Tools https://petapixel.com/2024/03/27/four-sony-alpha-cameras-get-huge-firmware-updates-and-c2pa-tools/ Doesn't look like all the updates are actually available yet. The firmware site (https://alphauniverse.com/firmware/) shows the A1 as having the update available, but when you click the link only last year's version can be downloaded. I'm curious to hear experiences from those who update right away. With MLB Opening Day tomorrow and seven games in a row, I'll probably hold off for now.
    • The A9III is not going to replace the A1 by any stretch.  Just because its new does not mean that it is better than the A1.  I also purchased an A9III but will keep both of my A1 bodies.  For shooting birds in flight, I feel like the A1 is still the better choice, unless your specialize in shooting humming birds and need to capture their wings in flight.  The A9III was a camera pretty much made for the Associated Press, especially for its use at the Summer and Winter Olympics.  The A1 is still a fantastic camera that can punch in and still offer a file that is just a few mp shy of what the A9III is cranking out.  The answer, of course, is to own one of each!
    • My #1 suggesting is get all the resolution you can! I like to slice and dice my images into many vertical crops and then string them together for social reels. A very pretty and large arrangement is surprisingly boring as one shot on social. By cropping into multiple frames, I can get the viewer deeper into the image. I LOVE my a7R5. I used the IV version prior. Now, if you want to shoot flowers and wildlife, the a9III may be a great choice, but I am more interested in resolution.
