Street portrait of the day: The first song after the rain


As I walked back from an appointment in the West Village, I spotted the lonely musician in Washington Square Park, right after a downpour, playing for himself, shot with the Panasonic GH4 and the 14mm wide open.
Not much time these days for gear reviews, swamped with work, got the GH4 for video and didn’t have time yet to try it out properly, ironic, isn’t it? The silent mode and af performance catapult it straight to the top for my type of street shooting, a nice bonus, certainly didn’t expect that. :)

Snapshot of the day: the challenge

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.
