    Told is,Thank you. First one is without flash. I agree with your observation regarding over complicating things. My first phase is learning how to get "natural" looking images. Then learn how to use light for effects.Statistics: Posted by sury — Mon Jul 22, 2019 4:32 pm

    .Nice images, Sury, but I like the first one for making the flowers appear like jewels shimmering in the dark. Working with multiple devices can be complicating things a little. Over time, I think you'll settle for certain device arrangements and adjustments and all will be looking even better. Good luck!Thanks for sharing,YildizStatistics: Posted by […]

    . Sury, good to hear that the context and production purpose behind the last image are similar between the shooter and the viewer. That's as much as the viewer can get close to what the creator of the image had in mind.Good work and much of the praise goes to JBTaylor, of course. Our sky […]

Pro underwater housing for NEX-5

Most underwater housings for compact cameras are basic items intended for use down to 10m or so. The NEX-5, with its magnesium alloy body and exceptional 16mm f/2.8 optic with fisheye and wide conversion options, is worth far more than that. It can be turned into the modern-day equivalent of the Nikonos rather than a . . . → Read More: Pro underwater housing for NEX-5

NEX-5 live sound

I’ve been using the NEX-5 with accessory mic – and sometimes, by forgetting to bring it, without. Today we had the Ripon City Morris side in town, and I was taking still shots using the Nikon D3X with the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 AF-S G lens. The NEX was grabbed as an afterthought for video.

NEX-5 with ECM-SST1 mic

Some parts of this were very close to large PA system speakers; others were close to dangerous loud instruments of war, notable Border fiddle and Scottish bagpipes from the Coldstream town pipe band (not the same as the Guards, this is the locals not their namesakes!).

Hand-held, mic set to 90 degree coverage not . . . → Read More: NEX-5 with ECM-SST1 mic

Practical’s NEX-5 verdict – 8/10

I was going to post this on our Forum for NEX originally. It’s not good form to launch into what may be seen as ‘rival’ publications or journalists, so it’s the kind of thing which is often kept to blog pages or forum discussion. But Practical Photography is one the best-selling, and most powerful, photo . . . → Read More: Practical’s NEX-5 verdict – 8/10
