favorite shots, cameras, lenses and thoughts

According to Instagram, these are my most liked and commented shots from 2015. An interesting year as I became addicted to street shooting (again), as you probably noticed I haven’t had much interest to review gear.

Millie: bokehlicious Sony 90mm macro

Love shooting with the Sony 90mm macro, you can get amazing deals here on ebay, as many sell this wonderful lens after their Batis arrived. I love the macro option, being able to go as close as I need without being limited by the minimum focus distance. Bokeh might not be as buttery at 2.8 as with the Batis at 1.8, however, due to the longer focal lenght it compares to the Batis at approx 2.2. In this shot I was inspired by the 135mm STF, which is -was- on my wish list, was, due to the fantastic af capabilities of the A7rII I haven’t been inspired to use my mf lenses for still shoots…….

Snapshot of the day: getting ready: A7rii and 50mm 1.4

Shot with the Sony A7rII during the 2016 campaign shoot for AG hair.
I have been shooting with the A7rII since the day it arrived, everything from look books, catalogs, campaigns, 4k video, 120fps video, model shoots, low light portraits and street, I will post an in depth report in a couple of weeks.
Much to like about this very versatile camera, however, it isn’t perfect and there are a few gotchas I hope we can get fixed with a future firmware update…..stay tuned :)
