Sunrise Driftwood Beach

Sunrise at Driftwood Beach  – This is Driftwood beach at Jekyll Island with dead trees in the sand at sunrise as a 2 to 1 panorama. It was a beautiful morning sunrise with these fablous dead trees that seem to magically grow from the sands along driftwood beach at Jekyll island. This look almost un-worldly in the early morning at the beach. This has been a location we have wanted to go to for some time now. Driftwood beach or boneyard beach as some have coined the phase because of all the trees and limbs that seem to magically grow from the sands along the beach. This view of this tree is silouette at sunrise which looks out over the Altantic Ocean something we never get to see here in Texas. This skeleton tree that is still planted in the sand gave some nice reflections as a silouette along the wet sand at sunrise reflecting back the wonderful colors from the sky. Jekyll Island is part of the Golden Isles of Georgia barrier islands.  This golden isles barrier islands got their name from the gold color that the salt marshes grasses turn in winter that surround this group of island.

What is the best Sony Mirrorless camera

This is a loaded question, the short answer is it depends. The question should be “What is the best Sony Mirrorless camera for me?” What do you want to use the camera for would be one of the first questions I would ask when some one ask me this question. Do you need a high end high resolution professional camera? Do you plan to mainly take photos of your kids sports and family stuff? Do you do need to take video? Do you blog? What is your budget? While technically the top end Sony A7R III, A7R IV that just came out or the A9 are the “best” Sony mirrorless cameras out there are they over kill for what you need.

Here is some back ground on a few of the Sony mirrorless cameras and the best uses for each model. Sony makes cameras for beginners, travel photographers, enthusiasts and professionals. They come in two main types: Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras which take interchangeable lenses, and Sony Cyber-Shot compact cameras with fixed lenses for all kinds of users and all kinds of budget. We’ll help you decide which type you need and which Sony cameras are the best (and the best value) right now.

Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras are designed for more advanced or enthusiastic photographers who need the versatility of interchangeable lenses and don’t mind a little extra size and weight. They’re the best choice for hobbyists and enthusiasts and pretty much the only choice for professionals.

Sony Cyber-shot cameras don’t take interchangeable lenses – but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re limited. There are some simple point and shoot models in the range which make great low-cost family cameras, but there are also more advanced Cyber-shot cameras for keen photographers who need a powerful camera that fits in a pocket, or for sports fans and videographers who need a longer zoom range than they can get with an Alpha model.

Lets take a look at some of the top Sony Alpha cameras that are available with either APS-C or full-frame sensors. The APS-C models are smaller and more affordable and designed more like traditional rectangular ‘rangefinder’ cameras – but they still pack plenty of power. Sony’s full frame Alpha cameras are more like mini DSLRs, with a conventionally placed electronic viewfinder on the top. These are larger and more expensive and more orientated towards expert and professional users – though there are still bargains to be had for enthusiasts.

Although it’s now over four years old, the A6000 is still one of Sony’s best cameras. Moreover, it significantly undercuts the newer A6400 and A6500 models for price. Indeed, it’s currently little more than a third of the price of the A6500. With its APS-C format compact camera styling, and access to Sony’s range of interchangeable lenses, it’s a small body that packs a big punch. Resolution is good in every area, from the 24.3MP image sensor to the 1,440k-dot electronic viewfinder and 921k-dot tilting screen. It lacks the ability to record 4K movies but overall performance and image quality are very impressive, and it’s terrific value for money too and would make a good lower cost entry level video camera for bloggers.

The Sony A6400 is effectively Sony’s ‘middle’ A6000-series camera, fitting in above the A6000 and below the top-of-the-range A6500. But it’s newer than both, packs a super-fast, super-high-tech auto-focus system, and great 4K video capabilities. Its still image quality is very good, but really this camera’s strength is as a blogging/vlogging tool for single-handed content creation. Its 180-degree screen is the key here, flipping up and over to face you to help your framing, facial expressions and delivery as you present video pieces to camera.

It might not have the glamour of Sony’s top-flight A9 and ultra-high-resolution A7R III and IV bodies but the A7 III camera grabs most of the best bits from both pricier models and delivers them in a more affordable package for most users. It features include highly effective 696-point AF system and a 5-axis image stabilization system that promises 5EV of compensation.There’s a new 24.2MP back-illuminated image sensor, coupled with the latest generation of image processor, and the two deliver amazing tonal range and make super-high-ISO settings possible. Handling is excellent, with a design that combines easy access to important camera settings with a typically compact and lightweight Alpha build. For top performance at a sensible price, it’s the best Sony camera out there for the average user.

The Sony A7R III, there are 42.4 million reasons why this camera is so popular. The ultra-high megapixel count enables you to capture the finest detail and texture in images, which makes the A7R III excellent for everything from architectural and landscape shooting to high-end portraiture and fashion photography. Even the view through the electronic viewfinder is deliciously detailed, thanks to the camera having the same EVF as the range-topping A9. Indeed, some of the image sensor technology is taken from the A9 too.Highly effective 5-axis image stabilization helps you to retain ultimate sharpness in handheld shooting, and the camera is no slouch either, with fast-reacting auto-focus and a speedy 10fps maximum drive rate.

If ever there was a camera to prove that you can get professional-grade performance and image quality without the need for a reflex mirror, this is it. Sony’s flagship A9 has the same megapixel count as the A7 III, but it boasts a higher-resolution electronic viewfinder and tilting touchscreen, both of which are beauties. As well as being a fabulous all-rounder, the A9 is a properly sporty camera, its stacked sensor design enabling a blistering 20fps continuous drive rate, while a cavernous memory buffer can keep you going for up to 241 Raw shots. This camera costs twice the price of the (also excellent) A7 III, but for professionals it’s a no-brainer.

Last but not least is the new flagship 60 megapixel A7R IV. The Sony A7R IV is a slightly higher-resolution evolution of the A7R III, which makes it the world’s highest-resolution consumer camera. It boast improved battery life up to 670 shots w/LCD, 10 FPS with a 68 frame buffer, 567 phase-detect AF points full-frame, real time Eye-AF for both people and animals, Dual UHS-II SD slots just to name a few.

So as you see there are several great options to choose from the Sony line up for the “what is the best mirrorless camera” out there.

Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower BW

Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower BW- We captured these  two iconic landmark features of downtown Dallas the Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower in black and white. The Flying Pegasus sit on top of a oil derick in front of the Omni hotel in downtown Dallas. This Pegasus had been on top of the Magnolia Hotel for more than half of a century till it was so rusted and  damaged that it had to be taken down. The city of Dallas replace it with a new pegasus on top of the building for a cost of around 600,000. The orginal pegaus sat in a warehouse for years until a group of nostagic people came together and started the process of bringing it back to life, this city of dallas artistans came together and started to help bring it back.  It was no small feat as no one seem to know where it was at first.  Finally the orginal pegasus was found and then it needed a home and it was placed on an oil derrick in front of the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas.  From this location you can see two landmark for the city of Dallas with the Flying Pegasus and the Reunion Tower in view.

This is an aerial image of the Austin skyline at right after twilight looking down Lady Bird Lake with the city high rise buildings along the shoreline of the lake in the downtown area and also looking north over IH35 where you can see the UT stadium and Erwin Center in the distant view. You can see downtown Austin tallest building the Austonian which for a few months longer will hold that title till the Independent is completed sometime before the end of the year. It has been hard to capture images of Austin skyline from anywhere along the hike and bike trail because they are constantly adding new building along the shoreline. About the time you think they are done new cranes show up. Just recently we found out that we will have two new buildings along the town lake shoreline once more and they will be taller than the Independent so its title will not last long. Austin skyline has been changing so frequently that we hesitate to even try and take pictures because we have to come right back a month later because things have changed.  For now it is much more stable because they are running out of room along Lady Bird lake where most of the high rises are going up in the city of austin for now.

The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge with the Dallas skyline is probably one of the top places for people to come and take photos of the city.  Dallas downtown has a lot to offers with some many cultural places with fantastic museums, art museum, and plenty of music events. Downtown dallas is broken up by regions like Deep Ellumn a popular spot for live music and drinking, uptown dallas which has many shopping areas, along with the Trinity Grove area for great views of the city and some wonderful restaurants.

How Large Can I Print a Digital Image

How big you can print your digital image depends on the number of “pixels” in the image. Pixels are the “dots” of color that make up your image. The greater the number of pixels, the bigger you can print your image.

The first step is to determine the resolution of your image by looking at the pixel dimensions of your original file, or a file that has been manipulated with non-destructive editing (meaning you haven’t cropped it or changed it in any way that will affect the quality of the image.)

What is the resolution of my image?

You can find the resolution of your image by opening it in your favorite image viewer program and then finding the image properties in your program’s menu structure. Alternately, you can also find your dimensions in these ways:

  • Windows 7 – Locate the image using Windows Explorer. Click your right mouse button on the image file name, and then choose “Properties” from the menu. Go to the “Details” tab. The dimensions will be listed there.
  • MAC – Use the finder to locate your image. Click on the image name in the finder. The image and information about it will display. The last line of the file information is the image dimensions.

Print Size Chart

Once you know the pixel count of your file, you can figure out how big it can go. This chart is set up so you can quickly find the basic range of sizes your image can be printed.  Notice that as the print size doubles, the megapixels required increases geometrically.

Megapixels vs. Maximum Print Size Chart

Megapixels Pixel Resolution* Full Resolution Print Size @ 300ppi Print size @ 200ppi Largest

*Typical Resolution. Actual pixel dimensions vary from camera to camera.

**At 150ppi, printed images will have visible pixels and details will look “fuzzy” and is the largest print adviable.

The Largest Print Possible

For the purposes of this chart, under “Largest Print” I’m listing the maximum size you can print the image without seeing hard-edged pixels, or little squares, in a print made on a typical printer. Some printers do a better job than others of printing files that are pushed to their maximum print size. You might not see actual pixels, but when you view the print up close you should expect to see:

• softness (the edges and details aren’t crisp)

• artifacts (weird anomalies in the areas that should be smooth)

• choppy transitions between tones

• any flaws that the lens captured will be magnified – you might see color fringing, distortion, spots, or any number of other flaws that wouldn’t be noticeable on a small print

A Full-Resolution Print

A full-resolution print is your ideal print size using the full image-reproduction capabilities of most printers. Printing at full resolution usually means printing at 300 pixels per inch (ppi), or sometimes 240 ppi. This file configuration gives you optimal quality on most printers. This isn’t to say that your print will necessarily be perfect. If the subject is out of focus or it has bad exposure (meaning the image is too dark or too light) the print may not look good printed to this size. Full resolution prints refer to the printer’s ability to render the information accurately. Having a good image to work with is a whole different post I will do later.

Can I Make Smaller Prints than a Full-resolution Print?

For any given image, you can almost always safely print smaller than the full-resolution print. However, sometime making a very large jump down in size can make an image slightly soft due to how the printer or print software interprets all that excess information. If this is a concern it can re-size the image with appropriate image manipulation software like Photoshop.

Here at Bee Creek Photography we use the highest-quality professional cameras and lenses to capture the best image possible at the highest resolution. We work hard to ensure each and every image we have on our web site is print ready and can be printed on a variety of high-quality materials like fine art paper, canvas or metal.
