NEX magic

I haven’t hidden my growing admiration for what the NEX cameras can do. It’s taken me a while to get used to, and comfortable with, the system, but now that I am, things are just on a roll.


We had a little Easter celebration over the week-end, coupled with the tenth birthday of my lovely niece. Once again the NEX 7, paired with the SEL35/1.8, proved to be the perfect everyday companion, capturing light, colors and textures exactly as I saw them.

Paques2013-09My favorite NEX feature has got to be the lovely rendering of contrast

Paques2013-11Playing with metering here. The strong backligting means you need to switch to Manual, but before I did I enjoyed the silhouette effect so shot it as such

Paques2013-12I’d lie saying I clearly remember what being 10 feels like. But I see a lot of expectations in those eyes here

Paques2013-13Here comes da boom… sorry, da cake 😉
