Utah on the Sony 28mm f2

After spending a few days exploring autumn & snow covered Colorado, it was time to start heading on our road trip through the US for a new adventure. The first state we had to drive through was Utah, and since it was so closeby, we decided to stop in Arches National Park on our way through. It was such a stark contrast to now be in the desert compared to lush and snowy Colorado but it was a beautiful landscape to experience nonetheless. In some spots of the National Park you could even see snow-capped Colorado in the distance!

We drove through the night into Salt Lake City, woke up in the morning and spent a whole day driving through a barren part of Nevada, making it to the border of California. Next stop is Yosemite National Park! I hope you all like the before & after images I’m including throughout my blog posts now! After getting some feedback on Instagram, it was a general consensus that you guys wanted to see more of that.

And if you haven’t seen it already, below is my photography related vlog of our time in Colorado and at the end, of what we got up to in Utah. Every photo in the vlog includes a before & after & was shot on my Sony A7iii + Sony 28mm f2.

Traveling to Colorado with only the Sony A7III

Traveling to Colorado with only the Sony A7III

In October, I travelled to Colorado with Dan and our friend Cuong to visit Denver and road trip through the snowy and autumn coloured mountains. We visited Aspen, Telluride, Ouray and all the places in between. I took only my Sony A7III to be able to vlog and take photos throughout our trip + 2 lenses: the Sony 28mm f2 and Canon 35mm f1.4 (which I used with a Metabones iv adaptor on the Sony). 

The reason I decided to take the Sony over my Canon 5D mkiv is because it is such an optimised camera for travelling. First up, it’s small and light weight which is perfect to vlog on and also doesn’t weigh me down while spending long days exploring, hiking and just walking around. Second, I see it on par with photo quality as my 5D, the images are crisp, RAW files are easy to manage and colour and focusing is actually pretty fine with the 35mm adapted. 

Lastly, since I also run a YouTube channel, filming video is just as important for me as taking photos! The Sony system is great for video, it has smaller file sizes than the Canon and again, the small and light weight nature of the camera means that I am able to vlog on it! I think we’ll all get sea sickness if I had to vlog on my 5D haha.

Check out the vlog from our trip below which has behind the scenes of us taking travel photos - portraits and landscapes as well as travel photography tips and SO many before and after photos!

Sigma 85mm f1.4 ART vs Canon 85mm f1.2L II

During today’s photoshoot, I was testing out the Sigma 85mm f1.4 ART vs Canon 85mm f1.2L II lens. I used both lenses on the Canon 5D mkiv and have mixed up the photos throughout this blog post from both lenses :D I have a review video coming really soon on what I thought of the Sigma lens and how it compares to the Canon and will make another blog post with unedited images so you guys can see the difference!

But this blog post, I just wanted to share all the photos from this lovely photoshoot! I think the fact that you can’t really tell the images apart is already a little hint into how amazing this lens was. Watch the behind the scenes of our photoshoot below & please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already! I release new videos every Wednesday and Saturday.
