Detail and light

By bobby55  
Checking out the a6000 mirrorless camera as suggested to me, I noticed how the light from the window played on the control dial and decided to photograph it. To me it had all the elements of a good composition, light, line, detail, shape, texture and colour.
I have finally bought the camera but due to the price being many times my usual spend, I am yet to be brave enough to use it.

A good camera no doubt (also my dream camera) .......the greatness of the camera will no doubt depend on the lens you use too.

No new lenses for me, just my vintage glass that serves me well.

What lenses do you use? Nice to hear which ones.

Go for it!

Manual adaptors are really cheap on eBay, and if it was me, I couldn't wait to try the camera out... Go on - and post here!

Is that the mirrorless thing causing you trouble? Unfamiliar?

After six years with mirrorless, I am thoroughly converted. I suspect you will be, once you start to get used to it...

The offset viewfinder throws me a bit, also the speed of the darn thing..I click and think I'm looking at actual subject waiting for the review when I find it IS the review I'm looking at.
It was a bit like my Honda Goldwing and sidecar......had it been intended for me to travel that fast with my butt that close to the ground, I'd have short legs and a turbo!
I've uploaded my first proper practice shot in the versions. Also playing with software hence b/w.

Strong suggestion: switch off the auto review. It will mean that you have to push a button when you want to see it, but it avoids interrupting the viewfinder view.

P.S. Handheld on a windy day at a wide aperture won't give much of a basis for judging quality...

Changed the version for an indoor shot taken in jpeg with the 16-50mm lens, just resized it.

Ahhh... If you have the 16-50, use it until you get the hang of the camera as a whole.

Once you've done that, it's time to play with the older optics!
