Some picks from my vacation in the Outer Banks this past summer. Need to put them in two different submissions. Here's the 1st. I tried using the SR app on the pier shot. Made the spraying water look a bit grainy and the sky wasn't great for it, but it was fun to do. These were all shot with my A6000. I have the a7RII that I normally shoot with but when I go down to the Outer Banks I only take my A6000 due to all the wind and dirt i end up getting on the camera. I'm a bit more carefree with the a6000.

No modifiers anticipated since the flash exposure will be blended in with the ambient. Setting the ambient to lighten mode and mixing with the flash exposure will help cancel out color cast. Thanks for the info on the AD200. I thought it performed similar to a speedlight but I see that's not the case.

As a side note, I'm a bit torn on the idea of introducing lighting into my architecture photography workflow. I'm concerned that it will deviate from the "style and look" that my current clients selected me for in the first place. Is that odd to think that way?

I don't see anything wrong with that concern, but done right, flash doesn't have to look too much different.

As an aside to your other question. If you want something that breaks down small but can still support a proper light, look into the Mathews reversing stand. If you need something with an even smaller footprint for hiding a light behind a chair or something, you can look at the manfrotto background light support stand. A few superclamps with baby pins never hurt either.

A9 is getting sold this afternoon. I need a body for a wedding this Saturday. I'm going to see if Pro Services can get me an a99II loaner with the A-mount 24-70

I have the same concerns, I have been a natural light diehard, and my clients have liked that look, worried about adding in lightning

It's not odd at all. I always get a little irked when people hire me based on my portfolio, and then ask me to shoot in a different style. But its more of a personal issue....if I can pull the shot off and the pay is worth my time I'll go out and do it. Plus sometimes it forces you out of your comfort zone and you learn a thing or two that you incorporate into your natural shooting style. I think its good to have some mastery of flash, even if you don't use it often. I actually prefer natural light, but very often flash is a necessity.

Whew! Glad I'm not alone with these concerns. Agree with you Carlo. I need to learn OCF. It's a good skill to have in my tool kit if the need arises.

Oh another thing I'm realizing from my recent commissioned projects is I need a 15mm lens. I've been using the Batis 18 and Loxi 21 in tandem and they are great but there are times when I can't physically move back and having 15mm would be so beneficial. I do have my Voightlander 12mm but I don't prefer to use it for interior shots.

Yes, you need something between 12 and 21. For me, if I were doing that sort of work, I'd almost certainly get a 16-35mm; probably the FE 16-35mm GM. When doing architecture the ability to carefully fine-tune your field of view with a zoom can be invaluable.

Great point David. Yeah you can't beat that focal length versatility. I need to see how the new 16-35 handles distortion. I could sell the Batis 18 and get it if everything looks good. I know it's a sharp lens. I would still keep my Loxia 21 but that could change if the GM is superb at 21-24mm.

From what I've seen in Roger Cicala's review comments, the GM is excellent in the 16-24mm range.

A nice advantage of the zoom is being able to shoot the entire job with one lens. It removes one headache from the project.

The GM has a lot of aperture blades, so the sunstars are messier - the FE 16-35mm has better looking sunstars. Also the F4 model is a lot more affordable. Still, I'd want to give the GM a solid try because it could possibly replace your Batis for astro.

Sell the Batis, but the Loxia 21mm is too good to ever sell imo. :)

My attitude is buy with a sincere expectation of keeping it, but returning the item if it doesn't measure up to your realistic expectations.

Continuing my studies of the RX10iv (the affordable a9).
Today strangely we had Sun and I found one of the hawks early on.
This shot one of 20 in the sequence and I can tell you the 10iv tracks large birds
(like hawks) like a train=very very a9 like.
This shot very similar to the other so won't bore you with them, but know this,
and I freaked, the 10iv continued tracking the hawk through many branches, just
outstanding AF-C, and I was in Wide for all the points.
If I lived in Florida this camera would do me fine.
