Low-light love

I'm constantly learning to push my gear to it's usable limits, especially in low-light or high dynamic range scenarios. Not long ago I purchased a Sony a7r III, and I am constantly blown away at this camera's abilities!

This image, straight out of the camera (save for the watermark), was captured at ISO 32,000....a number my Canon 7d mk II doesn't even have. 32,000 is the native ISO cap on the Sony cam, but it expands all the way to 104,200, which I've used to capture video of stars. It's crazy what technology has unlocked for us, and to think that it's continually improving is blowing my mind.

    It's amazing and sometimes daunting. Maybe in a few years out best work will look like stone-age photography.

    Wow no noise at that ISO.....crazy. Whatever you did, doesn't work normally it would be grainy as crap. Second why was such high ISO needed? No tripod?

    No tripod, just walking around the house testing out high ISO functionality on the new Sony cam. Really had zero reason to shoot so high, just wanted to see how it would come out. Since this photo was taken, I've been shooting more high ISO out of necessity with work projects, especially with video. Because I shoot a lot of high end real estate, there are often low-light areas that require ISO 64,000 to get the proper shutter & aperture settings for the scene.

    Additionally, I shot a sunset wedding & reception, with no flash the entire time, and was shocked at how clean everything came out! I'll post up some more low-light pics later this afternoon to compare.

    Here's one from the reception, shot @ ISO 8,000 with no flash.
