A girl and her hat: Maria S.

A quick shoot with Maria and the Zeiss 55mm 1.8 wide open on the Sony A7. This setup is now officially my favorite standard lens/body combo.
Af is spot on in good light, even when the model moves a lot, the keeper rate is much higher then during my Canon 5Dmk3/50mmL 1.2 and Nikon D800/50mm 1.4 days. Of course I am still using Canikons, however, nothing beats the current Zeiss 55mm for full figure and 3/4 location shots. A few more shots after the break
(more…)

Snapshot of the day: the challenge

Filed under: City Life,City Life Portraits — Tags: , , , , , , — mike.kobal @ 9:43 pm


Went location scouting today and spotted this kid, his mom kindly gave permission to take a few snaps, my favorite shot before he realized I was talking his picture, shot with the Sony A7 and the Zeiss 55mm 1.8 at f2. Quickly becoming my favorite body/lens combination for full figure fashion/editorials and portraits.
You can already find great deals on Sony A7 bodies here on ebay and once in a while a used Zeiss 55mm shows up.
You can also get the Sony A7 discounted here at Adorama.
