Sony | Alpha Profile Information

Golden hour in Shanghai captured by talented photographer @kaiyhun. Here’s a tip 👉🏽 "This shot was taken on my trip to Shanghai. One of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever witnessed. When photographing golden hour, I will always have the histogram meter on my camera screen. Using the histogram as a standardized chart, I would adjust my various camera settings to ensure proper exposure. Whenever possible, I try to keep my ISO low. The exposure of the image usually depends on the shutter speed and aperture, which I adjust accordingly to the subject I am photographing." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16mm | f9 | 1/40 sec | ISO 50 | #BeAlpha

The Mosque of Ibn Tulun, located in Cairo, Egypt, captured by photographer @davieg8 "This mosque is easily one of the most photo-worthy locations in Egypt due to its historical value and unique architecture. All of that made it quite challenging to me as a photographer to come up with a unique photo that captures the essence of the location. The weather and lighting conditions at that moment had a significant role in creating such a dramatic mood." | a7R II | 14mm | f/5.6 | 1/1250 & 1/160 (2 bracket exposure) | ISO 64 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @simonlachapelle "A cold winter day at Port of Montreal. It can be cold in Canada... really cold. This one was shot on a very freezing day. The good news was it was so cold outside that everyone was inside and we had the port for ourselves! I took this one at 16mm so I could correct the perspectives in Lightroom to makes lines perfectly straight." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16-35mm f/4 | f/5.6 | 1/250 sec | ISO 320 | #BeAlpha

Reflections on Eibsee courtesy of photographer @_alexanderwieck "The photo was taken a few weeks ago when the snow in the valley had started melting and the highest mountains still have their snow-covered peaks. It shows Eibsee, a small lake at the foot of the Zugspitze (in Germany) at sunrise. As a small tip, I recommend that getting up early compensates in most cases for all strains." | a6000 | 16mm f1.4 | f5 | 1/125 | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Lookin’ up with photographer @coreycaptures 😏 "I took this image in Chicago while walking around the city with a few of my friends. Sometimes the best photos are not the ones at eye level, but rather above or below you, especially within large cities. I am constantly looking for symmetry and where light is hitting -- When I looked up and saw the golden light hitting the side of the tower, I ran out into the middle of the intersection, aimed my camera straight up, and snapped a few images. I did this a couple of times in between traffic until I ended up with this image, which I was very happy with." | a7 III | 16-35mm f/2.8 GM | 16mm | f/8 | 1/250 | ISO 160 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @calibreus "Would you believe me if I told you that this reflection was created by a puddle that was less than a couple feet in length? It’s amazing what kind of perspectives you can get when you get low to a small body of water. Puddles generally produce stunning reflections due to the fact they aren’t affected by wind anywhere near as much as lakes or ponds are. Next time you’re out photographing a scene, look for puddles and try putting your camera really close to the water and see what you get. You may be surprised by just how big of an impact a puddle can have on a scene.” | #SonyAlpha a7 | 28mm f/3.5 | f/8 | 1/500s | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

Leading lines at Ancol Beach in Jakarta captured by photographer @tjieuw 👏🏽 "Don't forget before you take a photo to make sure you are in a good position. Be sure to use leading lines and the Rule of Thirds to make your photo look interesting." | a6000 | 9mm | f16 | 10 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

The insanely colorful California Poppies in full bloom captured by photographer @ccr_out_of_here 👉🏽 "This photo was taken near Lake Elsinore in Walker Canyon early in the morning. If you get there before sunrise, you can beat traffic and hopefully get a good chance to see the poppies without the crowds. If you're are planning on hiking or catching the poppies before they are off-season, please respect nature and stay on the path so we can enjoy the poppies for years to come." | a7 III | 16-35mm f 2.8 GM | f4 | 1/160 | ISO 640 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Photographer, creator, and timelapse expert, @stanmoniz, speaks to the internal interval shooting capabilities that are now available on the a7R III and a7 III 👉 "To have the intuitive timelapse capability right at your fingertips is a game changer! Where traveling light is a must and gear needs to be cut down, your vision to fast forward space and time can come to life in seconds! The onboard timelapse update available now on the a7 III and a7R III will lend to capturing a static sequence with the use of no shutter release cable. This = AWESOME!"

📷: @benmurphy.photography "With the arrival of Spring, tulips around the world have begun to bloom. Changing the height at which you compose an image, as well as the lens focal length you choose, can have a huge impact in how your image will turn out. When shooting very low to the ground and selecting a wide angle focal length, rows of tulips in the field can turn into a dramatic scene, where a forest of tulips now tower overhead." | a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | f10 | 16mm | ISO 100 | 5 shot bracket: 1/50, 1/6, 1.3s, 10s, 30s | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @johnnyv_imagery "One of the many amazing features that make The Big Island of Hawaii unique is the number of different environments and ecosystems that exist.  It is mind-boggling to be able to night dive with mantas, drive across great plains, bask in the midst of lush jungle waterfalls, and breathe thin air while watching lava glow below a psychedelic Milky Way.  I always come back with stunning images matched with life-shaping experiences.  This image is taken at Umauma Falls near the town of Hilo with the a7R III and 24-70mm GM with ND filter 🤙🏾" | a7R III | 24-70mm F2.8 GM | 60mm | f22 | 1/8 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha
