Alpha Rays

12th January 2008 – the Sony Alpha shootout in Midvalley! We were given 10 categories to shoot; at the end of the day, we’d submit only one.

Good luck flowing in.

Top of a cherry?

Proud parents.

The curve.

The fish under the bridge.

The kopitiam.

The narcissist and a trespassing giant.

The wall being posed with.

The Tamron 28-105mm F2.8. Whoa nelly!

The portrait session free with a purchase of makeup products.

The… the… *

Wander, boy.

Her wonder.

Darren‘s Sigma 300mm F4 APO Macro versus the big white Sony 300mm F2.8G SSM. Also spot his Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG!

The Sony Carl Zeiss 85mm F1.4 has strong liquid color… though it’s a bit too contrasty at times. It makes a great compact, very bright medium telephoto prime lens.

The TT (teh tarik, or technology transfer) session after that.

The picture I chose to submit. No, I did not win the prize, a Sony 16-105mm F3.5-5.6 DT. 🙁

* the shot was from later when I tried the Sony Carl Zeiss 85mm F1.4. It responded very well to the Neutral Creative Style.

I’ll be in Redang for a company team building exercise from Wednesday to Saturday, so don’t expect any updates till then!

    Sammy: I should’ve used my horn to summon them!

    KJ and Melissa: Nah, a bit too gimmicky, the picture is nothing without the lens effect. Plus the exposure wasn’t that nice.

    Mich C: Do you miss Al B, too?

    percy: I have no idea, but the A350 should be sooner than we think.
