I always look forward to hearing from readers on my site, whether they like a post, have questions regarding photography, or are even excited to get into “higher” photography by moving away from the P&S snapshot style.
Victor Hernandez is one such reader. We’ve been in contact for a little while now and through some constructive conversation we’ve settled on the NEX-6 to help jumpstart his journey into photography. He’s still getting used to focus peaking, balancing colors, and composition, but things can only improve from here. Here’s a small excerpt from our recent talks:
I’m BohemioVic and have been following your blog avidly…. You might recall I recently got a NEX-6 and have been asking you various questions… Thank you so much for your responses and advice… I’m digging photography so much!!!! Just a lil background of myself: I have over 17k pictures on my Mac that I have taken with P&Ss through the past 7 yrs… YES, I love photos and specially the memories… If you recall from your blog and our conversation, the NEX-6 was my big jump to real photography! Your blog has been instrumental on my approach.
This past Friday I finally received my legacy lenses; a Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.4 and MD 50mm f/2… Yesterday I got the Fotodiox Pro Minolta MD-Sony… Took a few shots and have been getting use to the Focus Peaking feature that the NEX offers…Here are some pics I took with the new lenses:
50mm, My friend and her daughter
50mm, My step-son
58mm, My pregnant girlfriend
Keep it up Victor, I hope to hear from you again soon!
P.S. To my readers, there will probably not be a weekly update this weekend. I’ve been bogged down with exams, an out-of-town conference, and an overall lack of sleep. As always though, I will post when I can. Take care guys and gals.
