B&H Photo Shoot

Sep 13, 2007
Northern VA suburb of Washington, DC
It's not every day that you see six lenses and two camera bodies all made by Sony lined up on a log. So, I stopped to find out what was happening. It was a photo shoot alongside the walk to Dingmans Falls in Pennsylvania. It was for a B&H YouTube video that will be released in a few weeks featuring Sony equipment and everything needed for landscape photography including several accessories not displayed in the photos shown below. The personnel included a B&H videographer, a B&H still photographer and Sony Ambassador Colby Brown, who was managing the shoot. He lives near the famous waterfall and proposed the idea to B&H.

By the way, Colby started his first photography business 15 years ago and strongly feels that this is the best time to make money in photography. He feels the great photographers that aren't making good money aren't applying the required business skills. He travels about six months out of the year usually for no more than two to three weeks at a time.

We then got into a discussion about Sony's advanced technologies in the mirrorless arena. That was when he got really animated explaining the details of what happens when using the Sony Alpha 1's bird's eye autofocus. He was really blown away by how good it is.

I recognize the distinctive ultrawide angle Big Boy Lens on the end at Stage Right (our left as we look at the image) -- the fabulous 12-24mm. I would've loved to have been there chatting with the crew and watching them work! Very cool!

Colby has already put together what appears to be a very useful guide to setting up one's new Sony Alpha 1, which hopefully one of these days I'll be able to actually utilize.....
