48 Hours in Paris, France with the Sony A7ii | Travel Blog

Travel

Continuing the last blog post, which was a blitz through part of Europe’s Schengen Area, landing in Oslo and taking the train down to Copenhagen. After jumping on a flight from Copenhagen, I was off to Paris for a few days! Luckily, the gloomy weather in Northeastern Europe gave way to sunny skies in France, which made a pleasant couple of days in Paris, though for the photos I would have preferred a few clouds for those dramatic skies. I stayed in a hostel in Paris, which is always fun, since I was solo traveling with just my backpack I didn’t need all of the comforts of a proper hotel without Betty or Miles with me. Two days totally free in Paris before I had to take the train over to London meant A LOT of walking seeing as much as I could, and taking a few photographs along the way. Here are some of my favorite photos from 48 hours in Paris :). All photos taken with the Sony A7ii of course!

That was day 1, Paris is not too shabby even in March! Of course, I wish their were more Spring blooms and greenery around the park areas and the Tour Eiffel, but you can’t have it all I guess! After a loooong day of walking around, I headed back to the hostel and crashed hard. But it was back at it again exploring Paris on day 2!

Day 2 was more of the same I guess? If you couldn’t tell, I love the architecture in Paris and the streets. I thought the streets of Manhattan in New York were pretty cool… until you see the old streets of Paris. Seeing the catacombs, Seine, Lourve, Tour Eiffel… all cool, but just wandering those old streets was my favorite part. This was a great quick trip to spend 2 full days wandering around Paris for the first time with my little Sony A7ii. The next morning I checked out of my hostel and it was on to London via train to meet up with Betty and Miles for a couple days in London together. Highly recommend Paris to anyone and I really want to go back as soon as possible, hopefully for a wedding or prewedding photo shoot during slightly warmer weather! :)

Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Days 10 & 11 | Wuyi University & Train & Shanghai
Days 10 and 11 of our Summer vacation to China sort of blended together with one day being a travel day, so they're blended together with this vacation photos blog post! As we were exploring parts of Fujian and Wuyi we went to visit Wuyi University which has a gorgeous and large campus out in the countryside of Wuyishan. After spending the morning/afternoon around the university and visiting Betty's family they dropped us off at the Wuyi rail station where we took the evening train over to Shanghai. Here are some of the sights from Wuyi University and Shanghai! Had Betty stand in for scale to just how big some of these buildings at ...

First Sony A7ii Review + New York City Time-Lapse
I really tried to like the Sony A7r for wedding photography, I did! You can read the initial Sony A7r for Weddings review blog post here and then the follow up here, where I talk about using the Sony A7r at a few Indian weddings and Vietnamese weddings as a second camera body. While it's a great landscape camera, not so much in a dimly let reception venue as a wedding camera. Well, of course Sony does offer the A7 which DOES fit that niche, but I was blinded by the high megapixel count of the -R rather than looking for what I actually need =). When Sony announced the new updated A7 Version 2 (A7ii) I knew that I needed to finally make the swi ...

Travel Photography: Farmers in Rural Shanghai
This post comes as a welcome break from the more travel oriented posts about our time in Beijing. While Betty did some real work in Shanghai, I spent my time on assignment shooting at the various farms and greenhouses we visited in the suburbs an hour outside of Shanghai. While Betty was occupied talking about gerberas and tissue culture, as well as being the company’s official translator from Mandarin into English, I occupied my time with camera in hand! Language barrier running at an all-time high way out here in rural China, I did my best to communicate nonverbally. Most of the time I made things work using the simple action of smili ...
