A7RII and GM Lens Experience

Gerbie Pabilonia, runner-up at the 2015 SWPA in the Portrait Category, conceptualised the photography set and facilitated a total of four sessions. As part of the preparations, models for the workshop were carefully selected and briefed about the shoot concept.


Each participant received a trial kit consisting of the A7RII, and the 85mm and 24-70GM lens. Using a Sony 4K TV, the captured pictures were projected directly from the A7RII onto screen. Gerbie Pabilonia also gave fans a brief demonstration on quick composite editing.



The session kicked off with a briefing on the programme for the next two hours. Sony trainers were on hand to guide participants on how to correctly use advanced camera features, such the A7RII Eye-AF, which ensures continuous focus on a subject’s eyes. 


During the hands-on session, participants experienced what it was like to shoot using continuous light in a studio setting. They also had the chance to direct models and received guidance on how pick out the right angles to shoot from.
