Lovely image Lee.

Here is a closer view of the sunrise reflections on the Denver skyline buildings. This was captured within 15 minutes from my previous blue hour shot.

Yep, Scrub Jays here for sure, although apparently ours aren't as friendly...I've never had one land anywhere near my head. ;-)a

I haven't shot one of these style images in a while...this one makes a nice addition to the collection.

some thoughts on sony cameras and how they work for me..

am I crazy for considering trading in my sig35 1.2 and 85gm for the sony 1.8 versions?

the baby shower I photographed the other day was shot mostly with the 35 and 55zeiss.. (the 14-24 came out a couple of times @24mm for some group shots) and I found myself almost rarely shooting the 35 at an f stop of 1.2.(main reason being dof too shallow for my taste, or more likely for my experience with events.. i felt like too many people were way oof, and only one person was sharp.. fine if you want that .. but not fine if i'm trying to show a group of people engaging with each other)

although this wasn't a low light venue .. it was decent I suppose.. a pleasant mixture of fluorescent strips running down the center and incandescent sconces along the walls .. I could have shot the entire event with no flash and never gone higher than iso3200.. if I at f2 and below (amateur mistakes were rampant.. i forgot cto gels at home :cry: )

how ever I shot 95percent with on camera flash and stayed for the most part at about iso800.

i'm not going to judge all my low light needs based on a handful of experiences but I will say i have a hunch that 1.8 would be enough in 95% of low light situations(considering i can add my own lighting and the great high iso performance , more especially the a73 vs 7r4))
but again my experience with events is too limited to say what works for me for sure

.. I certainly wouldn't mind the snappier focus of the 1.8's ..

it went well overall , the mistakes i made were purely due to still only having a handful of events under my belt and not knowing my gear like i should .. often needing to think for a second or 2 ,which custom buttons does what i need.
or on a couple of occasssions just forgetting to go into manual focus, for example on dance floor.. i don't BBF but i have a custom button set to switch to MF for moments when AF is struggling in one way or another.


the other thought is regarding the 7r4 and those 61mp.. i love those 61mp when i'm doing cityscapes and such .. but i'm mostly doing portraits ( personal projects,, colabs / tfp's) and hopefully the paid events keep coming in.., i'm finding the 61mp over kill ,

not that i didn't know that i have no real 'need' for 61mp when i bought the camera, but again with paid work begining to increase i'm now thinking more of what is needed and logical vs what would be 'fun' to have.
i'm thinking i may trade in the 7r4 for the a74 when its released(i assume with the newer style ergos)..

my daughter and her only cousin on my side...he turned 2 about 10 days ago. They had a great time together. I of course had the cameras ready at all times...

I don't think it would be crazy...you might miss 1.4 when you don't have it for portraits...I can see getting rid of the Sigma 35 and going for the Sony for sheer size and weight savings. Even if you find yourself at f2.8 or smaller a lot, those lenses still do that too...but also have the advantage of going wider if you need it...I know for me...the 85GM is going nowhere...the only way I sell it...is if I get out of photography entirely.

Again, stopping down is done with any lens...but to be able to open more if you really need it...if you can't do it...you will miss it.

Event photography is a whole different genre that can be challenging...you don't want to get in the way or too into the face of those at the event...you don't want to be distracting...yet you still have to capture it...

If the larger files are slowing you down in the field, consider something with lower res to go with it...or to just have a second lens on so that you can limit lens changes that could mean missing a moment. the r2 is terrible at people and events...too slow...I have loved adding the A73 in with the a9, it makes a great pairing and I don't have to change lenses all the time...and find that 24mp is plenty for people, portraits and events.

This has really been a down season for me. I haven't been motivated to ski. Not a lot of color out. Consequently, I've done virtually no picture taking. I do enjoy watching the sun come up while sipping coffee. Camera happen to be sitting on the table. Went out and snapped this for fun. The colors from this Zeiss Touit are really pretty nice.
