Barb is one of the realtors I work with (shooting real estate) and the other day she mentioned she didn’t like her current picture. I suggested we take a new one, so we decided to grab a quick snap on the balcony of the office building we work in. The sun was shining rather bright so I didn’t want any part of that because of the harsh shadows. I noticed one corner of the building that was shaded by some large nearby trees, but still had some nice light bouncing off the windows. The lighting worked out pretty good for such an unplanned event.
I shot this photo with my recently acquired Sony a7ii paired up with my Sony 55mm 1.8 Ziess lens. The coolest part about shooting a portrait with this set up is Sony has some amazing auto focus technology in this department. I press one button on the back of my camera and the auto focus hits right on the person’s eye! Once that focus hits, I press the shutter button with my index fitter and it’s perfect focus every time! This cool feature is by far my favourite thing about shooting with the a7 series cameras. I hope Canon picks up this little gem of an idea in the future.
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
