    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Taken this afternoon...This is the lovely little village of Cardinham, the neighbouring village to where I live on the other side of the Camel valley.
    Taken handheld at 168mm FL on the Sony 70-200mm F4 FE, which I feel is about it’s limitation before the corners start to go a bit softer towards the 200mm end.
    Please click on ENLARGEMENT link below to see the detail...Many thanks Barry

    Nothing special but here is a shot with the CV15/4.5. So far I'm really impressed with overall and corner sharpness

    What a bee shot Louis! .

    With the recent state of emergency for toxic river plume in New Mexico, I remember this shot I took about 3 months ago. Knee-deep in that....

    Well, I can't find anywhere to buy an A7Rii, so I'm forced to go out shooting with my crappy old A7ii.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    I have been recently travelling around several of the small churches set within the remote Cornish countryside. As the night descends these churches can take on an altogether different appearance outside and especially within!
    In one such church that will remain nameless, I stumbled upon a very small figurine of a monk almost glowing in the dark shadows of the corner of the church set against an old carved oak cabinet, it made me think back to an old English ghost story that I read way back years ago...
    The Stalls of Barchester Cathedral – By M. R. James https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/j/jam.../chapter5.html

    Quotations...
    “This might at first sight be mistaken for a monk or “friar of orders gray”, for the head is cowled and a knotted cord depends from somewhere about the waist. A slight inspection, however, will lead to a very different conclusion. The knotted cord is quickly seen to be a halter, held by a hand all but concealed within the draperies; while the sunken features and, horrid to relate, the rent flesh upon the cheek-bones, proclaim the King of Terrors”

    I must be firm, I must be firm, I must be firm”

    With the 55 FE (and my kid )
    (like how the A7RII deal with harsh/hard light conditions. Take care of the highlights and recover the blacks in post, works pretty well)

    I have merged all the A7rII posts with the overall thread now for all a7 cams. As always nice to know which camera and what lenses you used as that is a help to other members. Thanks Guy

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Very nice Guy, the Batis lenses and CV15III together with the A7RII look to be a magic combo in your hands congratulations. I have to admit it’s lovely to have all the A7’s back again within the thread that you created.
    I think I’m flogging a waiting it out for an announcement of a Sony A9...I probably should have preordered the A7RII like everybody else weeks ago and paid a little less attention to SAR

    Just a few miles NE of where I live lies the tiny village called "Temple" on Bodmin Moor.
    This is the rebuilt church at Temple that was originally built way back in c. 1120, on land belonging to the Knights Templar just one year after the Knights Templar's first became active c. 1119
    Wiki - Temple https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple,_Cornwall
    Wiki - Knights Templar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_Templar






    Just on the outside of the Church is an ancient outbuilding which resembles an oversized dog kennel from a time gone past. This has some very strange carved symbols in the stonework itself!
    It’s hard to see but on close inspection one of the symbols (Just right of centre) looks decidedly like a chalice!
    So I’m guessing that the “Holy Grail” is probably tucked away safely inside, where I expect it’s protected by the Bodmin Beast day and night and night and day

    Barry, I've admired your photos of historical sites and especially like this series. Thanks for sharing both the images and the history.

    Can you point me to a description of your BLENCOMO process? I know I've seen it described somewhere in this thread, now 118 pages long.

    Lovely composition and toning, Tim. Plus, the FE-55 is just stupid good. When I was shooting the A7R, that's the one lens that never failed to put a smile on my face.

    Joe
    Thank you so much Joe, that's very kind of you + Likewise another thanks to you for your mogrify/2 tutorials (Framing etc...) on your website, they became very helpful to me for when I first started playing around with the script.

    I will put both the tone mapping process that I still currently use here and also the BLENCOMO (BLENded COlour with MOnochrome) treatment, although my workflow has changed since writing this earlier.



    Tone mapping (page 100).... Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    I am still currently playing around with Photomatix, it’s not exactly the most natural looking of all the tone mapping programs out there!
    I figured if I could tame the OTT aggressive effects with this program (worse case scenario) I could then apply the same techniques with other more natural looking tone mapping programs.
    I generally make no more than 3 tone mapped images now, each one concentrating for either the highlight areas like skies, another for the mid tones and a darker version for the shadows.
    I will then compile these 3 images as layers on top of the natural original worked up image...Fading the opacities to taste, then erase/dodge/burn different parts of those layers to accentuate different parts of the image...Once happy I will then merge the 3 layers together with the original.
    It can be a little time consuming but I quite like playing around with this sort of thing, it’s a bit like assembling a jigsaw but in 3D!




    My old workflow back then incl. BLENCOMO treatment (page 62)... Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    GetDPI is a sharing community so here is my typical workflow as best as I can remember for you or anybody who is interested (apologies to those who are not).

    RAW>DNG>CS (ACR..Only basic corrections like exposure, vignetting etc...) open.

    When in CS straighten up the images horizon and then correct perspective and crop...Save as a Tiff.

    Open the Tiff into LR and then Export to Mogrify 2 LR/Mogrify 2 - Add Watermarks, Border and Text Annotions to Images Exported by Adobe Lightroom 2 the image (In other words add a preset frame with title, author and lens info etc.)

    Re-open back into CS (for Labcolor processing) and run this free downsizing/sharpening Web Sharpener CS4+ script Web Sharpener - Better Sharpening for the WebAndreas Resch ? Naturfotografie
    Andreas Resch - Websharpener script is just wonderful IMO, you can control the final output size (I use 1600x1600px maximum output for Flickr) and the actual amount of sharpening on layers together with contrast and saturation...I have pretty well tried most downsizing sharpeners out there, this is my favourite for sure but it can only be done in CS4 (or above) because it steps down in increments using the Lab color method.

    Once happy with the image flatten off the layers off and convert the Lab colour to SRGB and save as a new Tiff.

    Zoom into the corner where the image touches the frame and make a selection around the image only (This means all changes from now on in only have a effect upon the image itself and not the frame)...Make a thin black, grey or white (penline 1 px wide your choice) using Edit>Stroke.

    BLENCOMO (BLENding COlour with MOno) treatment.
    Keeping the same selection (marching ants) and now open filters (Nik software Silver Efex Pro 2)...I use a slight variant Preset of my own which is very similar to the std. Preset *015 included - but with less noise.> OK. (It’s like getting an instant black and white TONEMAPPED image which adds some drama to an image...vary the SOFT CONTRAST slider to taste or even add a tone like, sepia, selenium etc... should you so wish).

    Go to the Layers and fade the opacity to around 50% (It much depends on the colour within the image itself) and then flatten off the layers, you should now have a pastel coloured image which needs bringing back to colour life by adjusting the (Image>Adjustments>Vibrance) Vary the vibrance and saturation to taste.

    Still with the selection on use the graduated filter to Colour Burn down the Sky (Edit>FADE GRADIENT) and the Ground up (Edit>FADE GRADIENT) to form a base for the image.

    Correct the White balance (I use Pictocolour PictoColor Software: PictoColor Software: Color Correction Software and Photoshop Plugins ).

    Final step...Auto Contrast (Edit>FADE CONTAST) whilst watching the Histogram doesn’t burn out the Highlights...Add some curves, dodge tool (highlight) along pier strip and clone out birds and insects flying in the sky, deselect selection and save as a jpg....Takes me about 30-40 minutes most images.

    Hope that gives you some insight to my typical workflow....Cheers Barry


    EDIT...I will just add that these were copied from their respective earlier pages, when I was still finding my way with the process.
    Later experimentation showed me that the IQ increased dramatically by changing the sequence of the workflow.
    Just work the full sized image 24mp/36mp/42mp or whatever size you happen to be using to it’s fruition including the BLENCOMO treatment, then finish off with framing (Mogrify - LR) and then the Web Sharpener downsizing script in CS4 upwards.

    Thanks very much, Barry. I'll give it a try. Stay tuned.

    And I'm happy you found the tutorials on my website useful. Just trying to "pay it forward".

    Re: Fun with A7RII

    I'm sorry Quentin's thread got lumped together with this one so soon, when I thought folks were just beginning to explore A7RII and lens combinations as a separate topic/inquiry. Oh, well, here goes.

    I took it out for the first time this morning, withWATE, MATE, and Zeiss C/Y 25 and 35-70mm.

    My main concern was whether or not I could use the A7RII to replace my MM, which has the disadvantage of no live view. This makes composition and framing hit-or-miss, using external finders. I was happy with the BW results and can see no reason why I (or anyone else?) would want to own both an M240 and an M246 when they can cover both uses with comparable results and a fraction of the cost with Sony.

    In color, I was especially interested in producing some images with a gentle palette, and may have got a couple of examples.

    I haven't sharpened these files, even with ACR/LR default sharpening, and it looks like one can easily make a 14x21 print without any. Flickr, however, may have added sharpening.

    This shot is with MATE @ 35mm, f11.

    Fun with A7RII

    Here's another that met my expectations, this time with MATE @ 28mm. Again the BW version meets my expectations; and I can't imagine the M246 will do much better because resolution of 24 MP w/o Bayer filter would not be too different from Sony's 42MP. And with Sony I have the advantage – besides LV – of being able to tweak the conversion, esp. with R, Y, and G sliders.

    Fun with A7RII

    And here's another that didn't do too well in the color version, though the BW is what I expected. In the BW version I wantedlots of texture and not much differentiation of the subject matter, with rock details looking a lot like forest details. That turned out OK. But the color version suffers somewhat from flare. I generally like the flare of older lenses (25mm Distagon) in BW, but to my eye, the effects of flare aren't as nice in color. If this proves to be a problem I might try either the 25 Batis, or a newer 25 ZE or ZF Distagon with up-to-date coatings.

    PS, a friend just told me the soft colors looks like Marshall's hand-coloring. I don't think she meant this as a compliment! Perhaps I should back off a bit from that experiment.

    Kirk, I rather like the colour version: it has a lyrical delicacy.

    Great shots everyone
    Shots from this afternoon
    A7rII and Batis 25mm. This is an amazing combo, and a lot to learn still...

    Hate to say it. I have been so Batis crazy I have yet to shoot my VC 15 on the new body. The 35 maybe once. The 25 is so dang good

    Wish I could find one (the Batis 25mm). My pre-order is with B&H. Our local store, Southeastern Camera, has one I can rent, but they can't sell it.

    If I recall correctly, you used to have a Distagon 25/f2 that you liked. Is the Batis on par with that?

    That would be the 'Hollywood' Distagon? Hard to compare – I'd end up liking both the apple and the orange. :-)

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    This was a tricky exposure with Contre-jour lighting but tone mapping can be really useful at times for single shot HDR
    Still undecided on the excellent Batis 25mm + CV15III combo as I really do like the versatility of the 16-35mm FE in a single lens with all it’s other FL’s built in...It may not be quite as sharp in the corners but it’s not half bad and really excellent for a SWA zoom...Please click on “ENLARGEMENT” Cheers Barry
