JOIE! Andromeda rides a tire swing and tests the Sony A6000!

Post by Charles Haacker » Mon Mar 12, 2018 12:34 am

The contemporary Sony mirrorless have a reputation for very fast, accurate subject-tracking autofocus, far greater success rate than manual focus certainly (I could never have made these focusing manually, period). These were all made in Shutter priority, Sony ILCE-6000, E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS, ƒ/~5.6 28.0 mm 1/400 sec ISO-100. The autofocus was on continuous with facial recognition on (which mostly worked). I was firing short bursts of 3 or 4. I was on one knee in the sand and at my age and lack of condition I could not move. These are all full-frame, not cropped, finished in Lightroom CC Classic. The one that has me most chuffed is the last one. She is not only swinging across the field but also toward me, complex motion, but the autofocus locked right on her face. :look:

She is such a great subject, and you capture her personality so well. Not only is she adorable, she is a child who's full of joy, and it makes her absolutely glow.

Keep on shooting this kid and sharing her with us!

Thank you, Minnie! I shall keep shooting until I can't anymore. On the other hand, bear in mind that she is two, meaning that the reverse of the coin is a set of leather lungs and triple-chime brass pipes. :S

Thanks, Dave! That one is my favorite too. It seems reasonably well composed considering that I wasn't really composing at all, just trying a little desperately to keep my subject(s) in the frame. :| :lol:

Thanks, Steve! I occasionally reflect on the frozen-moments aspect of all artforms, photography in particular since it tends to be so immediate, fractions of a second most of the time. It goes back tens of thousands of years to people making stencils of their hands on rock faces, maybe just to say "I was here." :|

You know what amazes me though is when someone finds 30,000 images from the past and we're all in awe. They may have no technical merit, bad compositions, bad lighting, and yet we all still 'feel' a little something for them. It amazes me how much power an image really has, and how much we appreciate them as time goes on. Memories are precious, keep collecting them! S-
