Although most of my images on this blog are landscapes, I also photograph people. From time to time I will be involved in certain photoshoot sessions, but most of the times this work is not uploaded on my blog. Today, I am posting images from a recent session with Vaia Daldis (you can check out her site here).


For a project like this I would normally use the Nikon D800E, but since I was also shooting video, I used the Sony A7s with Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 and Leica Elmar 135mm f/4 lenses. Despite being marketed as a video camera, the A7s can also make great images. I find the 12 megapixels a little bit restraining for this kind of photography, but for web work and decent size prints, it is fine.

This session was all about natural light, I didn’t bring with me any flashes.



The Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 is a great portrait lens, and the razor thin death of field can help a lot in isolating your subject without having to step far away. The Leica 135mm f/4 is actually 40 years old and has a very distinctive soft look when shot wide open. I really love the results I am getting from this lens.

Enjoy the rest of the images.

    The third is the softest in color and mood.
    Perhaps you use that old lens.
