On our second day here in Thailand, we had the opportunity to experience the annual Yi Peng Lantern Festival, which was one of the most rejuvenating and magical events to photograph. #AlphaCollective member @matt.ferr shares a few of his selects from the night ✨✨”It’s been an incredibly enriching few days in Thailand. Chiang Mai is currently celebrating their annual Yi Peng Festival and we’ve been immersing ourselves into the culture. It’s believed that releasing these lanterns during the second lunar month symbolizes a letting go of the past year’s misfortunes. It was breathtaking to experience this spectacle of lights and shared belief.” | Shot on the #SonyAlpha a7R + 24mm GM and 85mm GM set-ups | #AICdoesThailand #BeAlpha

There was no better way to kick off our #AICdoesThailand trip than a visit to one of Chiang Mai’s most beloved and active temples, the Wat Phra Singh. #AlphaCollective member @philngyn shares some background 👉 “Our first day in Thailand started off with visiting one of the most revered temples in Chiang Mai, Wat Phra Singh, which translates to the Temple of the Lion Buddha. Outfitted in gold and copper, the temple is just as lavish on the outside as it is on the inside with its ornate interior decor. Trying to emphasize the gold exterior in my composition, I used the Sony 24mm f1.4 GM lens to capture a wider frame of view and shot up from below to contrast the stunning gold color against the blue sky. I can’t wait for more to come in the next few days with more incredible sights to see and so much more culture to experience.” | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 24mm f1.4 | f10 | 1/6400 | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

📷: @patagoniatothenorthpole "Patagonia has become my favorite playground, especially in the fall, where this 24 km hike leads you through dense lenga forests to the iconic vertical granite towers of Cerro Torre. I tend to use natural foreground in a lot of my shots simply to create mystique. My advice for making the most of your Patagonia adventures - take advantage of serendipitous encounters: meet fellow adventurers, make connections on IG, hike with some strangers. You’ll walk away with stories to tell, future adventure buddies, some of your closest friends, and a much richer travel experience than just photos." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 85mm F1.8 | f/2.5 | 1/4000 sec | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

Oregon's Multnomah Falls captured by photographer @zeekyan using the a7 III, a tripod, and the bracketing technique 👉 "In order to capture this photo I used a tripod to bracket three shots then merged and masked them into one image later in post. The first shot was taken with a fast shutter capturing the bright parts of the image. With the second shot I metered the exposure in the middle to balance the amount of highlights and shadows the image captured. As for the last shot, I set a long exposure to smoothen out the texture of the water and capture the detail in the shadows." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 16-35mm F2.8 | #BeAlpha

Tokyo-based photographer @jungraphy_ shares this tip to make the most out of rainy days 👉 "If you want to take a picture of the city, please go out to pick it up on a rainy day. I'm sure you'll be able to see a more beautiful city than usual. Reflections, umbrellas, splashes, drops of water and many other things will make your photos interesting." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 24-70mm f2.8 GM | #BeAlpha

A fall series by #AlphaCollective member @philngyn 👉 "Fall in Yosemite... What a sight. I’ve visited this place in every season this year, but nothing encapsulates the magic of this park like Fall does. When the waters come to a standstill, and the leaves glow a bright orange as the morning sun shines on the valley, there’s simply no better place to be." | #SonyAlpha a7 III | 16-35mm F4 and 70-300 | #BeAlpha

Some photography insight from (insanely talented) photographer @mydetoxtravel who shares this view of ice caves in Iceland captured with the #SonyAlpha a7R III 👉 "I am fascinated by the limit that separates fiction and reality. I like to isolate elements of nature and assemble them to create a new experience and give another perspective on how a place could be. My creative process is based on how I felt about the environment, not necessarily to document it as it was. When it comes to compositing, don't hesitate to push your creativity and inject your emotions in your editing." #BeAlpha #AlphaCollective

I didn’t initially plan to capture this shot, but thanks to image planning software, I discovered that an incredible moment could happen if the weather held out.

The moon over Glacier National Park in Montana captured by photographer @nateinthewild 🌙 “When shooting expansive landscapes, using a mid-range lens is a great perspective change. A bit of telephoto compression brings the subject closer, focuses the viewer’s eye and cleans up the landscape. Once you’ve scouted your location, it’s all about patience - envision the lighting and composition you want the most, and wait for the right moment!” | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 24-70mm F/2.8 GM | 56mm | f3.2 | 1/60 sec | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

On our last day of our adventure to Iceland, we had the opportunity to jump into 35° water and go free diving in the sea caves of Silfra. #AlphaCollective member @stevint captured this series using the RX0 II 👉 “An unforgettable experience diving in waters just above freezing while being between two continents. One of the most beautiful and mysterious places I have ever been to. Packing light was important with this trip, which is why I used the RXO II to shoot these underwater photos. Even at an ISO of up to 4000 on these shots I was still able to come away with useable images.” #AICdoesIceland #SonyRX

Share below which one is your favorite 😏 #AICdoesIceland • • “It’s been a blast rolling through Iceland with the Sony Alpha team for the past few days. We have seen towering waterfalls, ancient volcanoes, and colors that almost seem too vibrant to be real. I think the highlight so far has been a 2 hour flight above some of Iceland’s unique river systems and highlands. Having been to Iceland twice before it was pretty amazing to see these places from a fresh perspective.” #BeAlpha

We are currently on our #AICdoesIceland trip, a week long adventure exploring Iceland with ten #AlphaCollective members and @chrisburkard, and plan to share live all week long. On our first full day, we explored the Snaefellsnes peninsula, where @starvingphotographer was able to capture this incredible view 👉 “I love blending short and long exposures to give a sense of timelessness. In this shot, the scene was captured with the camera on a tripod, initially at 1/60 sec with the model. Then, the model stepped away, I placed a 10 stop ND filter on and recaptured the scene at 180 seconds. Later, I blended the person from the short exposure into the long exposure scene.” | #SonyAlpha a7R IV | 16-35mm F2.8 GM | 35mm | F5.6 | 1/60 and 180 sec | ISO 100 | #BeAlpha

Photographer @Nathan_Ackley shares these colorful views from Guangzhou, China 🙌 "I usually never shoot above ISO 800 for night shots but for this shot I chose ISO 3200 for the reason that I needed to capture the colored lights cleanly as they were constantly moving and shifting colors. I found the best exposure was the 1/30 shutter speed to get a good shot of the moving colors." | #SonyAlpha a7R II | 16-35mm F2.8 GM | F2.8 | 1/30 sec | ISO 3200 | #BeAlpha
