IS sony a 7 iii is the best low light camera full review

HI i am kunal verma I’m gonna show you guys how I shoot photos of myself but one of the reasons that I bought my first camera was because I wanted to get better photos of myself to post on social media you quickly realized that when you’re the one with the camera you actually end up taking photos of other people way more than you end up getting good photos of yourself so along the way I figured out a way that works for me to take more photos of me hopefully this way is helpful for you but there are a couple other ways that I’ll try to explain as I go the way that I’ve found easiest to take photos of myself will work with most modern cameras and that’s to connect your camera to an app in your cell phone like I said as long as you’ve got a fairly modern camera most of these companies are now making some kind of an app that will connect to your camera and allow you to monitor what you’re seeing and take the photo from your phone that being said most of the apps that I’ve used to try and do this are not exactly user-friendly there might be a little bit of fighting to get it connected you might lose some functionality that you normally have when you’re taking photos it’s all a bit of a game of give and take here’s what we’re gonna be shooting on today now first things first we’re gonna need a tripod and that should be pretty obvious because if you’re not holding the camera who is in this specific case I’m using my older tripod because I’m currently using my new one to film this obviously we’re gonna need the camera I’ve got the a7 three here I guess I can take this off because I am no longer vlogging with it I’ve switched over to the a 6400 for video so we’ve got the a7 3 and we’re gonna be trying out the ville trucks 85 millimeter F 1 point 8 I have tried this on my a 6500 but I haven’t tried it since I bought a full-frame camera slap this guy on the tripod and we’re ready to go so first and fore most I like to just set up my shot and make sure that I like it obviously there’s some people walking through it right now but that’s okay it’s feeling pretty good maybe we could move to the left and get this centered up a little better though that’s better so this is going to be a little bit different on every camera and the first way like I said is to connect to the phone so in the Sony cameras we’re gonna go into the menu I’m gonna go up to the top go over to the little world thing and go control with smart phone turn that on and hit connection now because I had previously been connected to this phone it automatically connected again but there will be some kind of a Wi-Fi password or QR code that you can scan or you can use the NFC I believe it’s called and scan that there will be a bunch of different ways that you can connect like I said in this case because I was previously connected it knew to reconnect so as you can see here I’ve got mirroring displays interesting how different the color is in each of them so now that I’m connected I’m gonna keep an eye on my phone and I’m gonna go st and in front so the first round is generally just me checking to make sure that once it gets focused on me that I s till like the composition and everything in this case I do think it’s looking pretty good I like that you can still see a little bit of the bridge although may be F 1.8 is a little too blurry in the background let’s try f28 and then I’m gonna have to crank up my ISO a little bit get my exposure proper let’s go hang out back in front again there’s the f18 shot and the f28 shot and generally I’m pretty happy with how that’s looking so now it would just be a matter of going out in front of the camera trying a bunch of different poses holding a camera or something to give it more interest in the shot this isn’t a particularly interesting shot inherently but I think it’s looking pretty decent and of course because we’re all on Instagram nowadays let’s flip that sideways and do a couple more one other thing to note is that I personally like to shoot portraits at at least 1/100 of a second if not 1 125 or more the reason for that is because all of the little tiny movements that your model is making are going to affect how sharp your shot is so if you’re looking to get sharper portraits make sure you’re shooting at a fast enough shutter speed I am losing my light real fast but before I get on to telling you an alternate way that you can also take photos of yourself I want to talk about today’s sponsor so you’ve taken a bunch of photos of yourself maybe you’ve made some presets you want to put them up on your website but you don’t know how to build a website you need to make a logo you got to do all sorts of stuff to get this stuff out there on the internet and you might not know how to do that this is where Fiverr comes in Fiverr empowers the creative community by connecting you with freelancers who can take care of some of those things that you might not want to or know how to do Fiverr has that talent on the website and they can connect you instantly literally you can go on there and find so much and all you have to do is click a button and you’ll have an order made there are different options for all sorts of budgets and all sorts of projects so use that link in the description to go check out my custom curated store see some of the people that I recommend some of the people that I’ve worked with in the past and if you’d like to see something else on my store make sure to hit me up thank you to for sponsoring this video now back to being vain and taking photos of our selves oh man it’s starting to get dark let’s crank this up I tried to catch Golden Hour but it just went from like bright to dark so personally I think connecting to the app even though it has its disadvantages and it can be a little bit glitchy at times is probably the easiest way for me to take photos of myself but there is an alternative that I also recommend and that’s by using an interval timer now again this might be something that’s built into your camera the newer Sony cameras all have interval timers the old ones had the where you could get an interval timer but you can also buy one to plug into your camera I will leave a link in the description and you can go find one from there so let me see if I can show you how to make that happen now again this might be different on your camera but I’ll show you it’s in the first menu on the fourth page we’re gonna go to interval shooting function I’m gonna go to interval shooting turn it on we’re gonna take one every let’s say yeah three seconds should be okay we’re gonna wait for 10 seconds to get in place the number of shots we’re gonna take is 10 now one of the catches with interval shooting is that depending on what your camera is it’s going to be different as far as how the auto focus works in this case I’ve never had good luck getting the interval shooter to auto focus in between shots so what I’m gonna have to do this time is actually set a manual focus point and just try and stick with it now especially at F 1.8 this is going to be a little difficult but what I’m gonna do is go set my backpack out where I’m gonna stand and then focus on that I’m gonna say a little prayer and go stand where I was these are super moody mostly because it’s starting to get so dark out here that you get
