Studio fashion with the Sony SLT A77

Studio fashion with the Sony SLT A77


My first studio editorial with the Sony A77 (full spread here) the camera does not cease to impress me. I found the EVF to be perfect in the studio and never felt the need to review the captures. And I have a new favorite studio lens! more after the break





the Rokinon 35mm 1.4 MF lens, stellar performance on this sensor, no problems with MF (due to the high contrast already wide open), field curvature wasn’t and issue and I was shooting at F2 to F2.8! This lens is tack sharp from F2 onwards and totally usable at 1.4!

    I have two a65’s for portrait and editorial work, and I find myself almost exclusively using my Rokinon 35 & 85 — the focus peaking makes them both an absolute pleasure to use, and the image quality is gorgeous. Tremendous value, both the lenses & the body. Beautiful work above. :)
