a powerful smile from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

Sarah Bellagha is a passionate girl. There is a shyness about her. Look into her beautiful eyes and you will see compassion, love and stars. Lots of stars. A fun shoot with the Sony A7 and A7r and lots of manual glass

Frostbite, shooting video at 10ºF with the Sony RX10

Filed under: Gear Reviews — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — mike.kobal @ 12:03 am


watch in full HD 1080p

Unlike the storm we had a couple of years ago when I wasn’t so sure that my Canon 7D would survive, the arrival of winter this year wasn’t quite as dramatic. However, wind chill pushed temperatures
well below zero and I headed to CP dressed in snowboard gear, the Sony RX10 a lightweight Sirui and a short Konova K2 slider.
It was the coldest day of the year so far and since cold days reduce atmospheric dust concentration the sky was bluer then usual. How did the RX10 hold up in these conditions?

waiting for her: director’s cut, teaser: 50mm 1.4

Filed under: Beauty,Models Fashion,Video Beauty,Video Fashion — Tags: , , , , , , , — mike.kobal @ 10:26 am

Another “less is more” clip. Filmed during my 2014 Hair campaign shoot for AG hair using a D800E and 50mm 1.4 lens. A good example why I love full frame. This is exactly where the Sony A7 fits in, I wish I had had it for this shoot, stay tuned for the sequel ;)
