I’ve been on Holiday in Rome. It was the first long trip I’ve done since going all in on the Sony A7r and ditching my Canon 1Dx. Mostly I ran with the Zeiss FE 35 & 55 lenses and I have to say it was an absolute joy to be out there shooting with a small discreet but high quality outfit. I have also learned a few things about working with the Sony too. One example; I beleive it under-exposes so I default to dialling in 1/3 of a stop of over-exposure.
All in I made around 500 exposures (some of which I think are pretty darned good), so rather than making a photo-a-day posts I’m going to make a number of longer multi-image posts with some different edits from the set, This way I can hopefully tell a story about my impressions of Rome. Look out for these interspersed with the regular ‘shot of the day’ type posts over the next couple of weeks.
I did get the chance to use a couple of my TS-E lenses on the trip too. The shot below, of the foyer in our apartment block, is a 3-image flat stitch from my Canon TS-E 24mm.
