Lessons from My 1rst SOMA Artists Studio Tour

During the first weekend of June, the 15th South Orange Maplewood (SOMA) Artists Studio Tour was held. I was convinced by my lovely bride to participate because I do not show my work enough.

Visitors are given the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work as well as show off their work environment. I went into the Studio Tour with grand ideas, but I missed a lot. It was not a huge success, it was a learning experience though. Here are a few of the things I learned standing there those two days.

Early Days With the #SonyA7III

There is one thing about the full-frame Sony Alpha series, it always reminds me of a Porche.

My Default Sony A7II Setup Sony 35mm F2.8 with Circular Polarizer and a Nitz Strap

When you look at all the current Full Frame Sony Alpha bodies, the Sony A9, A7rIII, A7III, they all look extremely similar just like Porches. However, they all have slightly different bits under the hood that a give them varying abilities and cost. The basic model out of all these cameras is the Sony A7III it is now my primary camera.
