Brooklyn Footage with the Sony 135mm G Master
This is a short film with video footage and stills with the Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master portrait lens.I thought I'd do something different for this video since I had so much good stuff from the Sony shoot. So this is presented as a short collection of visuals without me talking. If you want to see the full review - the video is below.Thanks to Sony for organizing the event at the Greenpoint Terminal Station which is an event space in Brooklyn, NY.Video footage was shot with the 135mm G Master on a Sony A7 IIIStills were shot with the 135 G Master on a Sony A9Check out my other videos:• Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master Lens Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2mLNFmNOT8• Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master Lens Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pix0A5TGn8• Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master Lens Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW-xRCrZXIc• Why Sony Is Absolutely Killing It Right Now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hYMgDT_iAI• Sony RX100 V :: Wow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuY48hNitCAMusic is from Epidemic Sound.

The ULTIMATE PORTRAIT LENS? :: Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master
The Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master lens is the 31st lens in Sony's full-frame, e-mount lineup.I quickly fell in love with this lens - it is outstanding. Designed for longer portraits, this has some of the best optical rendering that I've seen on any lens to date. This is the ultimate portrait lens. Bokeh is excellent, it has outstanding sharpness and the autofocus speeds are impressive. This has the same XD linear drive system that is found in the Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master as well as the Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master lenses.One correction - around 03:17 I say there's little spherical aberration at small apertures when in face I meant to say diffraction. This is where the sharpness softens in the lens and for most lenses this starts around f/16. Its been a long week - sorry for the confusion.Check out my other videos:• Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master Lens Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pix0A5TGn8• Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master Lens Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW-xRCrZXIc• Why Sony Is Absolutely Killing It Right Now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hYMgDT_iAI• Sony RX100 V :: Wow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuY48hNitCA• Sony a5100 :: The Best Deal In Photography? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuY48hNitCAMusic is from Epidemic Sound.

There was a huge surprise in the mail today!I get some amazing things sent to me by viewers. Today I got two Sam Haskins books that are fabulous!Sam Haskins was a British-born, South African photographer famous for his photo books in the 1960's. These featured his style of "in camera" montage images. His son Ludwig Haskins sent these to me.

Canon EOS RP :: Why?
Canon has just announced a new entry level, full frame mirrorless camera - the Canon EOS RP.The most interesting features on this new camera are the RP's small size and its price. Its the most affordable full frame mirrorless camera to be introduced in the last year. But this makes me wonder, what is the point of the Canon RP? It doesn't have any more features than the DSLR cameras that currently exists, so unless your requirements are an extremely small size, why would this be a camera of interest?Pre-order the Canon EOS R from B&H https://goo.gl/7QqFxjor Amazon https://amzn.to/2IdP9C7Blair Bunting's article on the need for high-end cameras: https://petapixel.com/2019/02/12/why-arent-cameras-more-expensive/Check out my other videos:• Fired from Canon!

Canon EOS RP :: Why?

No Photography Allowed?!?!
This weekend I went to Marfa, TX to visit the Chinati Foundation. Of course, no photography allowed.I'm always the first to defend the right to photograph, but in this case I actually agree with the policy. Experiencing the works of art by Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, John Chamberlain, Robert Irwin and many others - it requires attention. These are experience and environmental works that can't be reproduced in a photograph anyway. This does make it difficult to share my experience in this video, but I can talk about these works which is probably more important anyway.Also related:• Art Trip: Marfa (The Art Assignment) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2ASyPRzH8w• Nobody Cares About Your Photography https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4pE-pdhnJw• So You Want To Be A Photographer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HfLQDFYHJY• Fujifilm X-E3 Is Incredible https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjCjp-6lhcA• Fired From Canon :: The Instagram Problem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQqdw0iNBeoMusic is from Epidemic Sound.

Minimalism
This weekend I'm headed to Marfa, TX. Why? The main reason is Donald Judd. Judd is one of the leading minimilist artists from the 1970's and 1980's. While working in New York City, he started purchasing property in West Texas to display his large scale environmental works. Today, Chinati features works by Judd as well as Dan Flavin, Claes Oldenberg and Robert Irwin.I'm going to be vlogging my trip over the next few days. But before I do we need to discuss minimalism.Check out my other videos:• Your weekly PHOTOGRAPHY INSPIRATION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9Cgn0WxYPs• Panasonic S1, S1R :: First Impressions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zSAh3t2aks• Switching to an iPad for PHOTO and VIDEO editing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fRJXJCEIyw• Fired from Canon!

Only two episodes in, and I'm in love with this podcast. Ted's explanations are perfect for any aspiring photographers looking to learn more about the art. There are very few podcasts out there that explain the fundamentals of photography (how a camera works!) -- this is one of them. I'm looking forward to more episodes in the future!

For people that are aspireing to enhance beginning to intermediate photography, this is the best podcast I have seen so far. He really focuses on theory so that you can understand what the equipment means. I've seen the three podcasts so far and they are great. I hope he keeps making these.
