Behind the Photo Series
For this photo I was shooting another project exclusively on the Sony a6500 and was curious what it could do. It was one of my first serious outings with a mirrorless camera, and the size and features of the package were appealing.
I'm not sure if it was pure stupidity, or naive curiosity that had me get on the carousel with these young boys from Addis Ababa, but let's just say this photo almost caused me to lose my lunch.
I started thinking about telling the stories behind some of my favourite photos, and while a photo may be worth 1000 words, they aren't always my words. Don't get me wrong, that is one of my favourite things about photography — the freedom to interpret an image in a personal way — but there are some photos that have personal meaning behind them, and I'd like to share some of those stories.
Photography is my life’s work and has been something that I have just done since I was a young boy. My fascination with capturing moments in time has continuously evolved through the twists and turns of my own life. Photography is how I express myself, and how I communicate with the world. Whether it be motion picture, or still images I find the little stories behind each to be the most compelling thing that I do from day to day and I am constantly amazed by the people that I meet along the way. I am very fortunate to have done this as a career now in some way, shape or form now for over 15 years, and can’t wait to see what the next 15 brings.
The process is relatively simple. Set all of the the flash receivers to the same channel, start or restart the transmitter and put your lighting into play.
First and foremost I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed with the Sony A7RIII. The image quality is superb and Sony's colour profile is very good now. I don't see them lagging behind Canon in this department anymore. As with any camera this one has some idiosyncrasies that I endeavour to explain below.
While not necessarily the anticipated successor to the popular Sony a6500 camera, the a6400 has officially been announced and seems to be geared at the vlogging crowd with a 180º flip up screen so you can see yourself while filming or taking selfies.
24mm is probably the least sexy focal length, and thus does not get enough attention in the lens world. I currently only have a 24mm when attached to my 24-70mm GM or 24-105mm f4 lens; however, that is about to change.
Nikon has finally unveiled its new mirrorless camera lineup answering the call of the market currently led by Sony in the race to phase out DSLR cameras. While DSLR's have held onto the professional market to this point this probably marks the tipping point where that will change.
