Well, Sony's at it again with another camera, the Sony A9. I'm still waiting for the Sony RX10 IV though myself, but the Sony A9 is very tempting and makes me want one also.
It would seem that the target audience for the Sony A9 are sport photographers - nevertheless, other genres, such as wedding photographers, can also benefit from such camera.
Most people enjoy taking photos - it's a great way to store, share, and keep memories. Many begin having a desire to expand on their photography, including myself. As an enthusiast, I continue to learn as much as I can, but just like many, I had to start somewhere too. There's a lot of information out there, a lot of terminologies to learn and remember, but today, I'm going to take you on a crash course on some basic terms used in photography, and then understanding the different functions of a camera and how they work.
For those who are new to photography, I hope this tutorial helps you better understand what your camera is capable of. For those who are more familiar with cameras, I hope this will give you some insight into other capabilities of your camera that you may not have tried, or realised was there, yet.
Of course, this will not dwell into every function, just the main ones - most of the extra functions and features branch off from the main standard function either way. Also note that some of the terms used will be based more on Sony cameras, as I primary shoot with Sony.
The long awaiting Canon 5D Mark IV was finally released last week - the upgrade from the Canon 5D Mark III that many users had been waiting for.
It's finally available to us and will be brought in upon first customer order. Please note that the initial order will take 2 weeks to arrive and you'll receive it shortly after.
Our good friends Thanh and Lindsay were having their 2nd baby. So they wanted some family photos with their son Harvey and use this opportunity to announce the gender to him. A beautiful way to celebrate boxing day.
I don't think Harvey was as interested in knowing it he'll be receiving a little brother or sister as his parents though.
We did the photo shoot at Khu Du Lịch Văn Thánh (Van Thanh Tourist Park) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
I used Thanh's Canon DSLR for the shoot was I was already undergoing camera upgrades with Sony, so I didn't have my usual equipment with me.
And as usual, Canon just wasn't for me. Nevertheless, it turned out well.
Long await successors and features finally make it, but just after everyone's already purchased the predecessors? Ouch!
I love photography and I'm excited to announce that we now have Canon DSLRs available for sale.
A typical wedding in Vietnam involves the groom's side going over to the brides's family and bringing gifts, and the next day, the bride's side will go over to the groom's side to celebrate. Sometimes they'll do it within the day depending on circumstances or convenience. I was able to help take photos on the Saturday but Sunday.
It was a long busy day, involving the ceremony at the bride's home, and had the reception a little in the city.
My gear as always, the Sony a65 and 28-75mm f/2.8 lens. There were situations where I wish I something wider, especially in the home, but I managed.
