It's been awhile since I use the bigger camera. Dusting it off and trying to condition the old battery to hold a better charge for the Yosemite trip in 3 weeks. Here are a few shots from Ken's photoshot last weekend and a few shots from this afternoon.

Image

I tried to clean up the imperfections on the wall and front door.
Image

Trying to use the monocolor to move the focus to the subjects instead of the overexposed background.
Image

Image

Image

Finally a decent shot of Spot since I got him, instead of moving around.

I found out about the old school Minolta lens working on the Sony Alpha while reading some DSLR news. Some more looking shows those legacy Minolta lens are still some of the best lens for sharpness and picture quality. The best part is those Minolta lens cost half or more than the Sony lens. So I used some of my tax refund and got a lightweight used Sony A35 SLT and an old school Minolta 50mm F1.4 lens to start. Here are some test shot I did this afternoon.

Camera is much faster, lighter and smaller than my old workhorse (Sony F828). Can't wait to take it out for some outdoor shots.

My second lens (Minolta 100mm-200mm F4.5) came today along with a 49mm->58mm step-up filter I got also. The step-up filter enables me to keep using the polarized circular filter and close-up filter from my old F828. This 2 lens should keep me going for awhile until I can afford the more expensive lens.

I'm quite excited with the setup and can't wait to take it out for more shots. :D

Took some pics of Oreo and Spot in the garden this afternoon. Still trying to learn how to use the 50mm prime lens and experimenting with soft focus.

Thanks Kimhak. It was around 5:30pm when I shot them, so still a little bit too bright. I'm still trying to get used to the whole setup. More practices. :)

And a quick shot of the rims on the WRX after I spend an hour cleaning them today, it was cover with a thick layer of brake dust.
