  • Photographer @chrisburkard was one of the first to test out the all-new #SonyAlpha a7R IV. Naturally, he decided to take it on an epic expedition to Russia's Kuril Islands. Here are some of his first impressions: "The a7R IV is the camera I have always dreamt about.  Small enough to take on the expedition and hike with but with quality that rivals any medium format available…in your hand it feels like the most intuitive device I have ever used.  I am halfway through my expedition to the Kuril Islands, some of the most remote and beautiful islands in the world that string out between Russia’s Far East Kamchatka Peninsula and Japan.  To call this place harsh would be an understatement…constant rain, fog & ferocious wind are the norm amongst these active volcanic islands, which is what makes documenting the place so incredibly challenging.  Every day my a7R IV has taken a beating from the weather while at the same time providing me with some of the most beautiful images I have ever taken.  The camera has brought me back to the joy of shooting my first digital camera, and in many ways, it has helped me bring this remote and wild place to life in a way that I hope makes people feel more engaged about nature and its ability to change our lives." | a7R IV | 10mm | f/9 | 1/160 sec | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

  • If these images don’t warm your heart, we don’t know what will 😌 Photographer and wildlife queen @charlottelittlewolf shares, “The thing I love about wildlife photography is that it keeps you on your toes. You never know when something is going to pop up or fly away. The new firmware update with animal eye auto-focus further helps me to not miss a shot and keep those eyes sharp.” | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 100-400mm GM | 400mm | f5.6 | 1/800 | #SonyAlphaAnimalPortrait #BeAlpha

  • 📷: @mattkloskowski "As a landscape and outdoor photographer, I’m used to shooting narrow apertures to achieve the largest depth of field. But shooting with a 35mm f/1.8 lens gave me a new world of creativity to work with. Shooting at such a wide aperture let’s you really show off details (or a subject) in a scene, while still using the wide field of view to help tell the story of a larger scene." | #SonyAlpha a9 | 35mm F1.8 | 1/40 sec | ISO 400 | #BeAlpha #SonyArtisan

  • Views of New York City captured by #AlphaCollective member and local NY photographer @jnsilva who took the new 35mm F1.8 prime lens for a walk around the city 👉🏽 "35mm is my favorite focal length to shoot at because, in my opinion, it's the focal length with the most versatility. Portraits, landscapes, street, details -- you can capture them all with the right 35mm. The first thing I noticed about this lens is how light it is, making it the perfect companion for my street excursions in NYC. After shooting with it for a few days, I was blown away not only by how fast it focused and how sharp my images were but also by how smooth the bokeh was when I shot wide open. I'd highly recommend this lens to anyone looking for a compact and efficient all-around lens to add to their arsenal." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 35mm F1.8 | #BeAlpha

Photographer and #AlphaCollective member @dane.isaac, one of the photographers who had the opportunity to test out the all-new 35mm F1.8, shares his experience trying out this lens 👉🏽 "I was truly honored to be one of the first people to test the 35mm F1.8 prime lens. I shoot at 35mm almost every day as this is my favorite focal length and this did not disappoint. The obvious take away is the size and weight; it makes it less of a job to carry around. The surprise came from the picture quality and the focusing speeds which truly blew me away." #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

  • Photographer @december19 shares view taken at Bangkok's popular Ratchaprasong Intersection 🔥🔥 "This intersection is a really famous spot for both local and foreigner photographers. It can be taken both day time and night time. I came here at rush hour during the night time to capture the movement of the light. When the light was green, I took the shot the moment the car started moving and got it! I kept it super steady shooting handheld at f/2.8 and a shutter speed of 1/8 without any tripod." | a7R III | 16-35mm GM | 16mm |  f2.8 | 1/8 sec | ISO 500 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

  • 📷: @tiffpenguin "One of the goodest boys I know. It’s never easy photographing a moving subject (especially when it’s an animal), but I’ve been using the new Animal Eye AF feature from the latest firmware update on my a7R III to help me capture the sharpest images possible. This new feature helps you nail the focus every time by locking the animal’s eye in focus no matter how much they’re moving while your shooting." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 24-70mm f2.8 | f2.8 | 1/1000 sec | ISO 320 | #SonyAlphaAnimalPortrait #AlphaCollective #BeAlpha

  • An All-American view captured by #AlphaCollective member @marcodegennarophotos 🎆 "It's the Fourth of July and the season for fireworks, which is one of my favorite things to shoot. I fire off continuous shots for 2 to 6 seconds at a clip throughout the show. I usually open the shutter as soon as I hear each explosion of the mortars. At this location it is usually very windy, and since a long lens is necessary, the IBIS of the Sony a7R III in conjunction with a sturdy tripod helps me keep my images tac-sharp. Wishing you and yours a very happy and safe Fourth of July." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 70-200mm F2.8 | 191mm | F8 | 6 sec | ISO 50 | #BeAlpha #AlphaCollective

  • Two photographers @mmeyers76 and @danorst traveled half way around the world to get a front row view of one of the most unique experiences a photographer can capture. Here is a first look at what they were able to capture with their #SonyAlpha gear 👉🏽 “Dan (@danorst) and I (@mmeyers76) expected the total solar eclipse in Chile to be one of the coolest things we’d ever seen. It was that and then some. Not only was the event itself incredible, but the Chilean people were almost impossibly warm, friendly and generous. Thousands turned out and were in absolute awe, the two of us among them. To shoot it, we had six a7R IIIs working (one on the crowd, five to shoot photos, video and time-lapse of the eclipse), along with two RX0 IIs to capture BTS. We are very excited about the content we captured and will both be editing and posting more from our adventure during the coming days, but wanted to share this moment from just after totality tonight. If you look closely, you can actually see the cratered edges of the lunar surface backlit from the sun.” | a7R III | 100-400mm G-Master | f5.6 | ISO 1250 | #BeAlpha #EclipseSolar2019

  • 📷: @nateinthewild "Centered in the Brooks Range of Alaska, nearly 500,000 caribou migrate through the Gates of the Arctic National Park twice every year. The sea of animals had already passed through by the time we arrived, but I got to spend a quiet morning with this lone straggler as he tried to catch up with his friends. A telephoto is indispensable when shooting in vast landscapes. The compression helps convey the scale and draw your subjects closer." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 70-200mm f/4 G | 200 mm | f/5.6 | 1/800 | ISO 200 | #BeAlpha #AlphaCollective
