    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    My house is on the other side of Lake Union on the hill to the left. My office is on this side behind me. The Fremont Bridge, which I cross several times a day, is reputed to be the busiest draw bridge in the country. It was up, so, I got out to see what was passing under it. Turns out to be a 300' +/- concrete pontoon for the new floating bridge being built on Lake Washington! Not every day a hunk of concrete with a tug on each end cruises by. The pontoons are being built at Grays Harbor, on the Pacific Coast of Washington. I didn't know the Ballard Locks between Puget Sound and Lake Union were big enough for something like that.

    Googled it: 360' long and 11,000 tons!

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    While waiting for my bicycle to be worked on I ventured down to a bit of wooded river area right in the heart of the city. Im normally a cat person myself but there were several people out with their dogs and were pleased to let me take photos of them. Shoes left on the pebbled beach and pants rolled up I ventured out into the cold water for a bit of ankle wading. Turns out the A7 is decently water resistant in this type of environment, as tested by fairly close shots of very wet dogs romping about. Manual focus made capturing the fast moving beasties difficult but I managed a couple of respectable one. Overall a good, but tiring, day. All shots on either the Yashica ML 50/1.7 or the ML Macro 55/4. Surprisingly, all the water shots are from the Macro.

    Matt - the pontoons (and hence the bridge) were essentially designed to be just as big as possible but still fitting through the locks.

    It's a bit of a squeeze:

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Thanks Ben

    In hindsight I should have used the A7 with the flash sync at 1/250 as this was shot with the A7r at 1/160 with the Sony flash model 43 at 1/2 power. But it really is not overblown too bad and was able to pull those highlights back in pretty nicely. I like the fact it does not look like I used flash either its very subtle. Colors look good too on my daughter as that truly is her color and Yes Bob she does look like her mom actually both kids do. Lucky them. LOL

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    I always let the background blow when shooting portraits, not completely, just enough to make them bright/romantic/happy. Works perfectly here. Same ratio I would always aim for. You balance it too well, let the background be the same exposure and suddenly they don't stick out any more, they look dull, the dream is gone, oh and the fill is a lot more apparent. There's a reason why in the wedding photography world (the world I know) the background either looks exactly as you did it or is a lot darker with heavy flash on the couple. Sellin' the dream...

    All A7R + 55mm F1.8 at various apertures.

    I am really liking the 55/F1.8 FE Sonnar...It's a great lens IMHO.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    We had a bit of rain a couple of days ago which left a pool of water in a low lying section of our yard. Then, since Mother Nature decided she wasn't quite ready to end Winter, she sent us another blast of cold air. I made this picture this morning when it was 25 deg. Most of the water had receded, and this was left behind. Even though I'm so done with Winter, I appreciated the beauty of this little gift. Nature is magnificent.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Pulled shadows up a touch added black and the secret don't tell anyone in PS dodging tool on highlights at 10 percent just paint your highlights a touch. I did play with a little saturation. Now I would much rather do this in C1 with the color editor and pick my colors and play there as it's much more accurate. Most folks forget to dodge and burn. Okay old dog that did more darkroom work than I care to talk about but old school still carries over.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Some wide angle captures using the A7 + Voigtlander SW 15mm Heliar f4.5, that I acquired this week.

    Yes, it smears and it has colour shift but on the other hand the compositional possibilities and the dramatic output is worth it.

    This is the fourth time I have owned this lens. I had two first versions for my M8 and finally the newer m-bayonet version. In between my first and second copy I had the Leica WATE. When that reached a value equivalent to the GDP of a small country, I sold the WATE invested the money and bought another CV 15.

    When I sold my Leica kit I sold the lens, never thinking I would have the opportunity to use one again. Thank you, Sony.

    Incidentally, from my experience on the M8 I know it is not even necessary to focus this lens. I just put it on f8 and set it to infinity. Everything between 3ft and infinity is, in effect, in focus.

    Some Regent's Canal stuff


    This kind of shot is hard to create with anything else...


    Good example of the type of dramatic perspective possible, although there is obvious distortion.


    For architectural interiors it opens up a lot of possibilities - mind you so did my Fuji GSW690 but it weighed about 3 times this combination! New King's Cross canopy, opened in 2013.


    It allows certain creative possibilities that go beyond even a 21mm lens. This is detail from the frieze surrounding Paul Day's 'Meeting Point' (foreground) and in the background the latest installation art, 'Chromolocomotion' by David Batchelor, at St Pancras International Station, London.
    Note that this is a 6x7 crop - the 15mm allows the ability to extract in a format most suitable and of course the 24mm sensor allows a lot of 'cropability'. Good combination.


    A dramatic full frame shot of the 'Betjemin' statue showing other installations and a good deal of the restored Barlow Engine Shed at St Pancras.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Dang this wants me to throw in my 14mm in the bag when I go to NY the end of the month. I love these extreme wide angle looks. Was trying to go light weight. I'm actually going to rent the 24-70 for the trip and a gig I need to do the next day I get back to try and lighten the load. BTW my trip to NY is shooting NY. Love those kinds of fun trips just go shoot stuff.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Excuse me for being so late in posting a Cat Picture, I know it's one of the first things you're supposed to do when you get a new lens.

    This is the Zeiss 2.8 28mm in C/Y mount. It's quite sharp, but this was at f2.8, so I had to sharpen the cat a bit. Her name is Elizabeth.

    (I'm not sure why the image is so small, but if you click on it, it gets larger.)

    I clicked on image...but cat jumped!

    Does anyone know if the Zeiss 28mm f2.8 in C/Y mount is the same optical formula as the Zeiss ZM 28mm f2.8 lens? If so, that may be why Elizabeth is soft (no silly, not from jumping when I clicked on pic)...but the ZM version of that lens does have somewhat soft corners when shot at the wider apertures.
