Photographer @nateinthewild shares theses images from a recent adventure to the arctic to photograph polar bears using the new 400mm f2.8 G Master lens. "From the moment it was announced, I’ve been looking forward to using the Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master. The lens set the photography world abuzz and, in my opinion, it established a new peak for what a super-telephoto prime should be. Over a full kilogram lighter than the competition, better weight distribution, three image stabilization modes, the fastest focus system ever – the list goes on and on. I knew the lens would be a game-changer, and I couldn't wait to take it out into the world for a hands-on test." (Read more below!) #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha • • "One of the most important aspects of wildlife photography is capturing the personality of the animal. This means being on the ground and eye-level to truly convey the behavior of these bears - taking shots from an elevated platform doesn't feel authentic. This photo is part of an in-depth look at the arctic world I did in partnership with @churchillwildsafaris." | a7R II | 400mm f2.8 GM | #AlphaCollective


A set of images shared by #AlphaCollective members @lisabao and @tiffpenguin taken during a journey to photograph Vietnam. "The northern region of Vietnam is where we were most inspired to photograph because of its mountainous scenes and hillside vistas. This was also when we began to feel the most comfortable with our experiences and connection to the people. It was at this point in the trip we realized that even though we were raised in a different country, we found so many of our own strengths and characteristics mirrored in the people we were meeting everyday. We’ve been documenting our experiences along the way on our journey and can’t wait to share the full video soon!" | #SonyAlpha a7R III | #SonyAlphaFemale #BeAlpha

This photograph is the result of a successful set of circumstances.. I was in the right place at the right time." #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha


We are currently following photographers @tiffpenguin and @lisabao as they adventure through Vietnam to explore and document the country's landscapes and culture. #AlphaCollective member @tiffpenguin shares this shot of the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park's caves 👉🏽 "I've been wanting to explore the caves of Central Vietnam for years now. When we arrived at one of the largest caves in the world, it was pitch black inside and the lighting made it one of the most challenging things I've ever photographed. As we explored more, I was completely blown away by the unique landscapes in these giant caverns. There are many ways to capture photos in low light situations and understanding how light painting works can really help to elevate your shots." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | 20mm | f3.2 | 8 sec | ISO 320 | #SonyAlphaFemale #BeAlpha
