Fashion story captured in the
city of lights

My love for fashion stories is bigger than anything because I find them ingeniously gratifying. I travel and explore to capture the fashion stories that eventually lead me to divulge the aesthetic beauty hidden in people and places. My recent fashion photoshoot in NYC will always hold a special place in my heart because it was a brilliant opportunity for me to express a narrative while embracing my artistic vision.

FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II: A versatile lens that amplifies photography

I love how amazingly the Sony glass amplifies the colour texture, depth, and appeal of my images. The entire shoot was accomplished using Alpha 1 with superb resolution and speed and FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II which is a great choice when I have complicated projects and where I know I have to be fast and discreet.

Immensely easy to lift lens: Made photography seamless

The lightweight and compact design of the lens have always been the key, as I never have to bother to carry it around while constantly moving from place to place. As I was frequently moving across NYC on assignment, I discovered the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II lens was incredibly handy and portable.

A lens that exploits natural light in all its splendour

Natural light has always been intrinsic to my work and is a deciding factor in my images. I’m glad that I got to utilise natural light at its best in this city of lights, and to my surprise, the camera and lens gave optimum results in varying light conditions. The lens's 9-blade aperture made my visuals stand out. The bokeh in my images had a unique look and helped with smoothness and natural lighting as well.

Alpha 1 made freezing the moment simple

Not to mention the impressive speed of Alpha 1 that offers me new dimensions of capturing images as well as effective workflow. The 50.1 megapixels allowed me continuous bursts at up to 30fps with AF and AE tracking using the electronic shutter.

Dependable auto-focus for flawless focus and performance

I am so happy with the visuals of this shoot as the images look spot-on with breath-taking texture and extraordinary resolution and big thanks to the accurate autofocus of the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II. The incredible precision for a flawless focus simply makes me fall in love with this lens and reconsider using zoom lenses.
