    • Mixed Light Portraits in the field
      I try to use natural light in my portrait photography whenever possible but I will say, having a small portable light that can fill in some of the backlight really makes a difference when I'm out shooting! What's great is if you're shooting at golden hour you really don't need a powerful light source to have it show up in your frame. I'm using a simple Rotolight AEOS2 that only has about a 2-3ft throw but it adds just enough pop to really make the shots stand out and look natural at the same time! What kind of systems do you prefer to use out in the field to make your fill light pop? 

      Shot these on my A7RV with 50mm 1.2G (My favorite combo!!)

      I will use any excuse to make the two and half hour drive to Joshua Tree National Park.

    • Does IE have a method for combining focus stacked images? All I am seeing is an option to combine shots for a pixel-shift shot. Are there any tutorials online?
    • I've been trying to find the best and most efficient way to do self-portraits and I'm wondering what everyone else is doing. My current setup is studio based, 3-4 lights (Aputure 300DII / 600C's), my Sony A1/A7RV, 50mm 1.2GM, and a 32" monitor for viewing via HDMI.  Would love to know what YOUR workflow is!   
    • One of the best combos I've used for urban exploration is the Sony A7RV + the 12-24mm; especially when you only bring 1 body and 1 lens with you. Most of these rooms were 90% pitch black but I was able to shoot at f2.8 @ ISO 6400 on the 7RV and WOW WOW WOW can that camera handle the dynamic range and resolution! Honestly, I didn't expect the A7RV to perform as well as it did in low light but the amount of detail left in the shadows and mid-tones really makes me a believer!! What are some of your favorite pieces of gear to shoot with if you're out on an urban exploration? 
    • Agree! Green AUTO should be remove or at least Sony should allow users to reprogram that setting. For example, the AUTO could be changed into your main working setup.
