To bring in the new year, I did what I usually do on New Year’s Day: visit the ocean. I went to Pacifica with a couple of friends and enjoyed a glorious sunset. It had everything you expect from a Bay Area sunset — beautiful light, cold air, dark clouds, and an interplay of light and darkness. I didn’t take my camera (or the phone), so I borrowed my friend’s Sony RX 100 VII.
The attempt to take photos with that camera made me realize that I really don’t like Sony cameras and the colors they produce. And more importantly, after years of being a full-frame devotee, I just can’t embrace the 1-inch sensor. I won’t deny that I am so accustomed to my Leica SL that I have a built-in bias again any camera. How Sony cameras render colors are not to my taste. I had to spend a little time in Photoshop to edit these photos — mostly to adjust the colors to suit my taste.
Enjoy the photo story.
