Join Sony Artisan of Imagery and award winning landscape photographer Jason Lanier as he shows you how to get perfectly focused images, at night, using Sony’s Focus Peaking and Manual Focus…
The Problem i have with the the Focus peaking is that in club photography,
the camera is having trouble identifying what is sharp due to the low
contrast caused by the fog/smoke they pump in. The lack of External flash
AF assist is a real issue. Yes i can manual focus, but with drunk people in
a club situation, people don’t want to stand there and wait for you to nail
focus. I love my a6000, but for now it won’t be replacing my DSLR until i
can find a convincing alternative method.
Focus peaking, in combination with focus assist, easily makes your pictures
Hey guys and gals! Brand new video out regarding how to get perfect manual
focus at night using Focus Peaking and the Manual Focus Assist. PLEASE
THUMBS UP AND SUBSCRIBE!
Hi Jason, could you make a video on using the Zebra feature in conjunction
with the exposure compensation? Thanks.
Funny you upload this now, I just back from shooting an event that I almost
exclusively used the mitakon 50mm 0.95 on the A7. Lots of focus peaking
going on there!
The Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range is just to the east. That’s
what you heard an saw.
I like these videos by Jason, they are very good indeed. I shoot with
Nikon D750, it’s very good at focusing in the dark, so I’ll go and try to
push it a bit. If it can’t auto focus, I’ll try the live exposure view in
live view which should aid in getting manual focus right…let’s see what
happens. Thanks Jason.
Here’s my question you have the sony a7s, which is around 12 megapixels.
why aren’t you shooting with the a7r with around 36 megapixels? I get it if
the reason is because you shoot in low light and the a7s is really good for
that but either way you could get a much better quality image on the a7r?
Every time I watch a new video I am in amazement. You are a master of your
trade! I have the utmost respect for you and your skills. Thank you for
sharing. Keep shooting and making videos! <3 all of it!
Thank you Jason, I’m learning a lot with your videos. Please do one with
the lenses that we should get. God bless brother!!!!
You can also hit the center button to zoom in even further, and move the
magnified area around with up/down/left/right.
If only you had caught that explosion on video haha! Great Video!
Jason you rock baby. Hell yea
I am currently a Canon user. Living in the desert I love shooting at night,
this is making me strongly think about making the switch.
Just picked up my A7ii today thanks to you. Glorious camera
Thank you man great advice
Hope to take one of your classes in the future
