    You have a sony A7III- Boy, I'll give buy that A7II for a dollar!

    Just kidding hehe dont take my Robocop reference too seriously.

    Thanks for the answer. F-stop of 5? Not bad. Still! The the looks good, and the layered picture gives me more of an appreciation of astrophotograhpy. My grandfather from my dad's side was more of a nature and space kind of guy and he'd tell me techniques and show me equipment to take good photos of the night sky.

    Valestein34 years ago#33452267First, I want to say you take some very good photographs. You combine set design and post editing very well. I like that. I'm not a huge fan of overly edited pictures or shopped backgrounds and props.
    Your ingenuity and creativity are like two forces of nature coming together. I really enjoyed that picture of Miku in an Easter basket boat, and after learning the set up you had to make for that shoot to work, is impressive to say the least.
    The Story of Miku was a really good read. I enjoy reading about people's thought processes, mentality of doing things, and their experience of growth, both of its success and failures.
    You have Sony cameras, and the Sony a7ii no less. Very nice. How are the a-mount lenses compares to e-mount lenses, picture wise? I have a Sony a6000 and I want to expand my choice of lenses. I only have the stock kit for it but it gets the job done for portraits quite nicely.
    I feel honored Haha It's not every day I get name dropped by someone. Keep up the good work, TravellingSee. Let fair winds and following seas take you home.


    Sorry for the super late response. I saw your comment a few days ago but didn't have the wits about me to be able to respond (too tired from studying everyday XD)

    First off I'd like to thank you again for your comment on my photo. Without it, I likely never would have made the Miku Series and if I did, it'd either be a lot later or with different thematic elements.

    In terms of e and a-mount lenses, as you know, I use the a7 ii which has a full frame sensor. When using the lenses themselves I don't pay all that much attention as to whether or not I'm using an A or E-mount compatible lens but rather as to whether or not I'm using an APS-C or full frame lens. In that respect, I feel as though, so long as the photo upholds a certain standard of quality, it is good enough.

    I will say, however, that I default to my full frame e-mount Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 lens when I do most figure photography. Even if I'm using my APS-C alpha ILCE-5100, I default to the 55mm.

    Between A and E-mounts, the A-mount lenses are made for the Sony mirrored cameras whereas the E-mounts are designed for Sony's mirrorless cameras. They both come with APS-C and full frame options. To use one on the other, you'll need an adapter of some sort.

    Basically what I'm trying to say is that the mount doesn't have that much to do with the quality, it's the glass (I mean, you could potentially lose a little bit of quality and functionality on the camera if you're using an A-mount on a mirrorless or vice versa but I feel as though if the glass is good enough, the difference won't be too noticeable). Zeiss has a high standard of production and is Sony's premiere line of L-lens equivilent lenses.

    A and E-mounts could be useful in certain situations. With your a6000, you just have to test things out. It's probably obvious that using the correct mount on the correct lens will yield "superior" results in general, but if you have a really good A-mount and you want to use it on your a6000, then you might surprised with the results.

    I hope that helped! ^^

    Valestein34 years ago#31255365Sort of. Don't just solely make dark pictures. If you want to make those kinds, it doesn't have to be completely dark. A tinge of warmth or hope can make a powerful statement.
    Is that what you were asking?


    Well the Harvest Moon Miku picture wasn't supposed to be sad in the first place. It just so happened, like you mentioned, that it turned out that way. But it gave me an idea for a miniature series revolving around that. I'll see what I can do and work with it.

    TheTravelingSee4 years ago#31255114So basically you think that, if I were to do a darker picture of a nendoroid, I should commit to that idea?

    Valestein34 years ago#31255093Hi. I've read your comment and I'm glad you took my opinion into consideration.
    I wouldn't mind somber pictures of Nendoroids. just something that's "darker", moodier, etc. It doesn't have to depressing, deep, or violent, something that isn't overly bright and colorful. I can't explain it too well.
