and that was about it.


These are all with the a6000 and the kit 16-50mm. Seems to hold its own, but the files needed a lot more work to get them where I'd like them compared to the Nikon (so much I had to establish different defaults for both my cameras), and the shadow recovery still doesn't hold a candle.

It's super convenient but really missed the DLSR. Good practice run with it before my London/Italy trip in May.

Mirrorless cameras really need help in the battery life department. I would have expected that weekend might have used 5-10% of my nikon's battery, i was down to 20% by the time I got home. I only took like 200 pictures.

I'm proud to say my work is on the walls of MOMA.
Unfortunately,it consists of drywall tape and compound,and was created with a knife and trowel.
Nice pics.

That's better than the crap they called photography there. Last time I was at the MET they were showing an Annie Leibovitz exhibit (~16 years ago). This year it was literally shots someone took around his office building. the most boring ridiculous pictures ive ever seen, like someone got his first 1.8 lens and start shooting the first thing he saw.

the MOMA was just way too busy, full of loud dumb kids and silly conceptual art that looked like trash and had no point. It's a shame Starry Night is there and not with the rest of Gough at the MET.
