I recently got a used Canon G5X on ebay, as I do most of my photo gear. It’s a small 1″ sensor camera with a hot shoe. This is important because it allows me to shoot with strobes. That’s my one complaints about my RX100V. Tonight I got a chance to test it at a small birthday party for Ryan at East Brother Brewery in Point Richmond.

Had a call in Santa Cruz and ventured out to grab a couple of photos with my new Canon G5X. Of course it was a crappy light situation.

As soon as I got rid of my big Canon cameras, Sony announced the A7III, hmmmm.

As much as we dislike this building that blocks our view, it provided some focal points to this evenings sunset.

I made an attempt at shooting a family friends night time soccer game. I horribly underestimated the field lights intensity and the resulting images came out pretty damn noisy. I shot approx 345 images but most were trash. At some point I was shooting at ISO 20K. Those were unusable. While my Sony A6500 performed well the slow lens did not, lesson learned.

I haven’t used a DSLR in a long time so I decided to get rid of em. First the 5D3, then the 7D2. I have a love hate relationship with ebay selling. It feels like I spend too much time entertaining very stupid questions & requests.

Sandy just flew in last night so as usual we didn’t do a Christmas Card. Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year. I’ve always wanted to do a shoot at this location but it was a used car lot and full of cars. They must have closed down so I took advantage of the situation and grabbed 3 speedlites. Magmod Magsphere camera right Maggrid camera left as a hair light and a bare flash pointed up to illuminate the Alameda sign.
