Views of the iconic Alabama Hills shared by photographer @missjessbess 👉🏽 "I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at Alabama Hills that the wildflowers were in full bloom. This day, I was hopping back and forth on rocks with two camera setups going. I used the distortion of the lens to really exaggerate the size of the flower in the foreground, I also did this by getting as close to the flower and as low to the ground as possible." | a7 III | 12-24mm F4 G | 12mm | f16 | 1/8 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Here’s a tip from photographer @professorhines 👉🏽 "This photo was taken with two filters, a 3-stop Neutral Density and a 6-stop Dark Circular Polarizer filter. Using a polarizer for images with water are useful for removing the reflections that may be presented on the surface of the water. In placing the filter onto your lens you can turn it as far as you desire, to minimize or remove those reflections from your image." | a9 | 25mm f/2 | f22 | 182 sec | ISO 50 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha #AlphaCollective

📷: @mydetoxtravel "The best images I have are the ones I've imagined even before pressing the shutter. I've scouted the area a couple of days before and I decided it'd be the perfect place for huge panoramas. This image took me 5 hours to process. The reason is that the file size is a little over 6GB, a result from a 21-shot Milky Way panorama and 7-shot foreground. It was very challenging to work with such a huge file and transform it into a 4x5 portrait shot for Instagram while trying to keep the shape of the mountains as natural as possible." | a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @jeroenvandam "The underground stations in Stockholm are considered by many to be the most beautiful in the world. This particular station, Radhuset, is my favorite because of the fiery orange colored bare rock. I took this shot at 1 a.m. in the morning to make sure the station was almost empty, except for me and the lovely Maja who walked in the frame. Also, with help of a tripod, I carefully composed the image using the leading lines of the floor, columns and escalators, so your eyes are automatically drawn towards the person in the center." | a7R III | 16-35mm f/2.8 GM | 16mm | f9 | 0.4 sec | ISO 200 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

A #SonyAlphaAnimalPortrait of the most adventurous cat we have ever met @sukiicat , captured by photographer @enchanted forest. "Anyone who photographs animals knows how difficult it can be to get the focus and timing right... photographing an adventure cat is no exception! With all the birds and bugs zooming around, I have to be fully prepared to catch the shot when she finally looks. The new Animal Eye AF, in combination with fast shutter speed, has been such an amazing tool for capturing those crisp, split-second moments." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 16-35mm 2.8 GM | 16mm | f4 | 1/320 sec | ISO 200 | • • We will be featuring several animal portraits over the next few weeks and will be looking for images shared on Instagram by YOU.

Seoul is very hazy because of all the pollution so I used a "Night Sky" filter to clear the yellow haze in the sky.

📷: @missjessbess "Every time I visit this spot, I realize that it is constantly changing. It had rained heavily about two weeks prior to this visit which had greatly diminished the number of cracks to be found. By getting as low to the ground and as close to the subject as possible, I was able to make layers and create depth to these mud cracks making them look much larger and more exaggerated than they were in person." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | 16mm | f16 | 1/20 sec | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha #AlphaCollective

#AlphaCollective member @nateinthewild shares this insane single exposure taken at Lost Lake in Oregon. "Shooting #astrophotography during a new moon can be tricky - the extremely dark skies are amazing for getting the stars to pop, but it's very difficult to expose the foreground. Thankfully, snow-capped peaks like Mt. Hood reflect light much better than dark forests, allowing for proper exposures on even the darkest of nights. Of course, the incredible low-light performance of the a7 III was a big help here, as I was able to create this frame in a single exposure with no stacking or bracketing." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | 28mm | f2.8 | 15 sec | ISO 6400 | #BeAlpha

📷: @calibreus “I have a slight obsession with roads. They can offer the perfect leading lines, and when you find a quiet road like this one, you’re often given opportunities to capture different perspectives and angles. Roads can look even better when they are surrounded by snow, as the snow can create more of a balanced scene when it comes to dynamic range. If you live in a place that gets snow every year, I recommend trying out some road photography when the streets are still dry and you get that texture in the asphalt. You may be surprised by the results. But of course, always be careful and mindful of traffic. If it’s a busy road, it might be best to go look somewhere else.” | #SonyAlpha a7R II | 16-35mm f4 | f8 | 1/200 sec | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

Views from the Jackson Street Bridge in Atlanta, Georgia, captured by photographer @jjasonchambers 👉🏽 "This is an epic spot for shooting sunsets and blue hour in Atlanta with the sun setting directly behind Atlanta’s downtown skyline and plenty of leading lines that give depth and draw the eye into the frame. I chose to stop down and drag the shutter just a bit adding some movement to compliment the leading lines."| #SonyAlpha a7R II | 24-70mm f2.8 GM | 24mm | f22 | 1.6 sec | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

📷: @fred malinis "This photo was taken along the Marin Headlands looking toward the Golden Gate Bridge during sunrise. It was one of those rare mornings when the city was experiencing a low fog event. A low fog event during sunrise is one of those special moments that every photographer in the Bay Area chases, but rarely gets to capture. I was very lucky to capture this shot because the fog broke open for only a few minutes exposing one of the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. The fiery orange glow was caused by the tower lights reflecting off the fog mist. It was a morning that I will never forget." | a7R II | 24-70mm f2.8 GM | 70mm | f2.8 | 2 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Never be afraid to try something new... you might be surprised with the results!"

Golden hour in Shanghai captured by talented photographer @kaiyhun Here’s a tip 👉🏽 "This shot was taken on my trip to Shanghai. One of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever witnessed. When photographing golden hour, I will always have the histogram meter on my camera screen. Using the histogram as a standardized chart, I would adjust my various camera settings to ensure proper exposure. Whenever possible, I try to keep my ISO low. The exposure of the image usually depends on the shutter speed and aperture, which I adjust accordingly to the subject I am photographing." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16mm | f9 | 1/40 sec | ISO 50 | #BeAlpha

The Mosque of Ibn Tulun, located in Cairo, Egypt, captured by photographer @davieg8 "This mosque is easily one of the most photo-worthy locations in Egypt due to its historical value and unique architecture. All of that made it quite challenging to me as a photographer to come up with a unique photo that captures the essence of the location. The weather and lighting conditions at that moment had a significant role in creating such a dramatic mood." | a7R II | 14mm | f/5.6 | 1/1250 & 1/160 (2 bracket exposure ) | ISO 64 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Lookin’ up with photographer @coreycaptures 😏 "I took this image in Chicago while walking around the city with a few of my friends. Sometimes the best photos are not the ones at eye level, but rather above or below you, especially within large cities. I am constantly looking for symmetry and where light is hitting -- When I looked up and saw the golden light hitting the side of the tower, I ran out into the middle of the intersection, aimed my camera straight up, and snapped a few images. I did this a couple of times in between traffic until I ended up with this image, which I was very happy with." | a7 III | 16-35mm f/2.8 GM | 16mm | f/8 | 1/250 | ISO 160 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @calibreus "Would you believe me if I told you that this reflection was created by a puddle that was less than a couple feet in length? It’s amazing what kind of perspectives you can get when you get low to a small body of water. Puddles generally produce stunning reflections due to the fact they aren’t affected by wind anywhere near as much as lakes or ponds are. Next time you’re out photographing a scene, look for puddles and try putting your camera really close to the water and see what you get. You may be surprised by just how big of an impact a puddle can have on a scene.” | #SonyAlpha a7 | 28mm f/3.5 | f/8 | 1/500s | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

Changing the height at which you compose an image, as well as the lens focal length you choose, can have a huge impact in how your image will turn out.

Photographer @rachel_jones_ross has embarked on a journey to spend one hundred nights under the stars and has taken her trusty 24mm F1.4 G Master lens along for the adventure. Here are her thoughts on the lens: "I’m a pixel-peeper. When I edit an image I want my stars to be sharp and round. A good astro lens is one that captures sharp stars with the least amount of coma. At its widest aperture (f/1.4 ), I saw very little, if any, coma in the Sony 24mm f/1.4 GM. And as the aperture decreased toward f/2.5, there was zero coma. I have not seen this level of sharpness from any other lens at such a wide aperture." | a7R III | 24mm f1.4 GM | f/1.4 | 3.2 sec | ISO 6400 | • • Be sure to follow #AlphaCollective member @rachel_jones_ross ' #100NightsUnderTheStars journey and learn more about her experience through the LINK IN BIO! #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @wolfmercuryphotography "Saying there are a ton of photos of the Space Needle is an understatement. It's one of, if not the most, iconic landmark in Seattle, making it a challenge to find unique and new views to photograph. I've shot from this street a few times now, never quite nailing the shot. No matter the edit, the flare from the street light overtook the image drowning out the moodiness of the scene. This time, I decided to stack two different apertures - f13 and f2.8 - so that I could get a nice sharpness throughout the image while having the "spikes" of the flare at f13 and the softness at f2.8." | a7R II | 16-35mm GM | f2.8/f13 | 1/15 | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Here's a tip shared by #AlphaCollective member @missjessbess to keep in mind when using a wide-angle lens 👉🏽 "Death Valley is home to several dune fields, and each of them has their own unique characteristics. By using the edges of the frame with a wide angle lens, you can actually make things like mountains, dunes, or flowers look much larger and more dominant in your composition. This is as opposed to placing objects like this in the center of the frame on a wide angle lens, which would make them appear smaller and diminish their presence in the overall composition." | a7R III | 12-24mm f4 G | 15mm | f16 | 1/20 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha
