The streets of Paris captured by photographer @ryadoug 🇫🇷 "I always like to shoot in backlit settings because it adds other elements to the photo like this “sunstar” effect and shadows. Thanks to the sensor on the a7R II, the I am allowed to get details from the shadows in post-production without using a flash." | a7R II | 14mm | f22 | 1/250 | ISO 200 | #SonyAlpha


📷: @meghanmaloneyphotography "I'll never forget the feeling of being alive on that morning and unexpectedly running into fellow photographers I knew of only via Instagram. To share in that moment together at dawn on top of a mountain was all the more special. I love how the Sony a7R II can capture the vivid color palette of the mountain in such detail against the subdued afterglow of the dawn." | a7R II | 16-35mm f4 | 35mm | ISO 100 | f/7.1 | 1/13 sec | #SonyAlpha


📷: @travel.n.think "What I like about photography is that it forces me to examine my surroundings and find unique perspectives. I like trying out different vantage points and take my time. It sometimes amazes me how slight changes can have massive impact on the mood of the photo." | a6000 | 16-50mm | 16mm | ISO 100 | f16 | 1/125 sec | #SonyAlpha


The desert night sky captured by @micanthonyhay ✨ "After making our way through this canyon at night, we were treated to an amazing star show after turning off our headlamps. One of our guides hiked up on this ledge to help us compose an incredible shot of the canyon and himself holding a flashlight staring into the heavens." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | 22mm | f2.8 | 20 sec | ISO 6400 | #AlphaCollective


San Francisco based photographer and the newest member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective @jude_allen shares some insight of what photography means to him: "Photography to me is so many things on so many different levels; Traveling to distant places, meeting new faces, staying connected and sharing a part of myself with the world. Follow me on my journey as I embark on this amazing adventure." | a7R III | 24-70mm f2.8 GM | 70mm | f4.5 | 1/200 sec | ISO 100 | #AlphaCollective • • Be sure to check out more of Jude's work at @jude_allen and show him some love by giving him a shout below! #SonyAlpha


📷: @aroundq "Uluru has to be one of the darkest places I have ever been to. When shooting in places with no light pollution do not be afraid to increase your ISO. The a7R III handles noise extremely well." | a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | 16mm | f2.8 | 30 sec | ISO 8000 | #AICdoesTheOutback


📷: @albertdrosphotography "The famous Neist Point at the Isle of Skye in Scotland is one of those places you just have to see. This is an amazing place for photography and looks good all year round. For this shot, both a polarizer and an ND filter were used." | a7R II | 16mm | F/14 | 8 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha


Flying above Los Angeles captured by #AlphaCollective member @gjaden 👉🏽 "I always love the freedom of seeing these adventure shots. It always gives a sense of wonder. A tip I have is to use at lease a 1/1000 shutter speed as a minimum to keep your shots crisp when shooting from a helicopter." | a7R III | 16-35mm GM | 16mm | f3.5 | 1/1600 | ISO 200 | #SonyAlpha


📷: @ck_outside "This shot of the Space X rocket launch was taken next to the lifeguard tower at New Smyrna Beach in Florida. It’s easy to take these launches for granted, having grown up in Florida, but they’re really a special thing when they launch just before sunrise!" | a7R II | 16-35mm | f/9 | 115 sec | ISO 250 | #SonyAlpha


Cotton candy skies over Spirit Island shared by #AlphaCollective member @mydetoxtravel 🙌🏾 Here's a tip: "Lately I've been revisiting shots from old trips. After a shoot, I tend to edit only a few & let the others sit in the hard drive for a couple of weeks or even months. It allows me to come back to them with a fresh view and truly appreciate the beauty of a landscape. While going through the photos from my trip to Spirit Island last fall, that shot caught my eye with the symmetry, the leading lines and the reflection. I still don’t understand why I didn’t like it back then, but it’s the proof that our tastes change, and it’s always worth it to review old work… You might find some gems!" | a7R II | 16-35mm f4 | 35mm | f4.5 | 1/100 sec | ISO 800 | #SonyAlpha

#Alphaddicted on this shot by @adrianbaias 👉🏽 "The trick to getting these kind of skies is to go out on location whenever a big storm is approaching at sunrise/sunset. You should look to the horizon: if you see a clear strip of sky near the horizon, expect the clouds to light up as soon as the sun rises/sets in that strip of sky. Remember to bring your tripod for the sharpest shot." | a7 II | 16-35 f/4 lens | 16mm | ISO 100 | f/10 | 2.5 sec | • • Photographer @adrianbaias continues, "Of course, luck is a big part of the equation. This shot was pure luck, as a storm came out of nowhere during a previously dull sunset in Luxembourg City. I set up my camera on a mini-tripod, placed it on the bridge railing and started shooting. Literally seconds after this shot, it started pouring." #SonyAlpha
