"SONY" Camera Not Tethering to Capture One? Cloud File Syncing May Be to Blame

Sony Cameras not tethering to Capture One Pro or any other softwares on your MacBook/Windows

Is your Sony camera not tethering to Capture One Pro or any other software on your Mac or Windows computer? I had this issue for quite some time and thought there must be some issue with my system, or camera, or wire โ€” nope. I decided to write a message to Capture One and get a fix but no one could help me.

Almost no one seems to know about this issue. There were a few people who had the same issue, but they never shared any solution to it. It was just get a new camera, laptop, tether tool wire, or maybe stop tethering.

Anyhow, last few months Iโ€™ve stopped shooting because I couldnโ€™t tether and I donโ€™t enjoy my shoots if I canโ€™t tether. I was going mad trying to fix the problem, and today I have the solution. 

Every time I connected my camera, this is what the camera showed:

Capture One Pro was clueless and gave me messages like this one:

And other times it showed nothing at all:

NOW LETS TALK ABOUT THE SOLLUTION:
ITS
GOOGLE DRIVE BACKUP & SYNC

What I discovered is that this was caused by Google Drive Backup & Sync. All you need to do isโ€ฆ

Yes, thatโ€™s right: simply Quit your Google Drive Backup & Sync and it should start working perfectly. Iโ€™m not much of a technical person, but I really think this is the stupidest thing that I have ever come across. There shouldnโ€™t be a connection at all, so I still donโ€™t understand whatโ€™s happening.

Anyhow, do this and youโ€™re back to Tethering!

Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art for Sony E-Mount

Iโ€™ve been using Sony Mirrorless cameras for last 3 years and initially when I purchased the E-Mount body we didnโ€™t really have any other options but buy the patent lenses from Sony but now the time has changed and finally sigma has announced lenses for Sony E-Mount camera. 

I happened to test Sigma Art 35mm f1.4
Firstly let me start with a Built Quality as it is same as Nikon & Canon Sigma Art Lenses. This is the first time Iโ€™ve ever used a sigma art lens and when I compare the sigma lens with any other third party brands, sigma is built very well. Has a nice body with auto on/off switch and lovey hood.

Autofocus:
I wasnโ€™t really expecting much since in the past all the brands have failed on auto focusing lens for Sony E-Mount. Not to forget there are few features like Eye auto focus which was not available while we were using third party lenses with the adaptors on. But this lens has completely surprised me with the Auto Focus in a decent distance.

This image was shot in a Natural light where I had just 2 mins to make few images.

I shot few images early in morning against the sun to see what it could do. I didnโ€™t want to edit these images so that you all could have a look at the output directly from the camera.

I also gave a shot to this lens in my commercial shoot for a jewellery brand where I was using 3 Light Setup.

How about the Bokeh?
Everyone knows about the bokeh you can achieve with this lens so instead I created few images where you could not just see the bokeh but also understand how this lens could perform even when the subject is moving and keep the image sharp & intact.

Overall View
When you start to compare this lens with any other lens Iโ€™m very excited that sigma is finally in the game. Itโ€™s pretty cool to have a fast aperture lens in such an amazing price range which is very affordable to those who needs a fast lens but doesnโ€™t want to invest a lot on the lenses. Colors are great, edges are sharp, less distortion, Little heaver than the Sony 35mm f1.4 but you shouldn't mind the weight when the lens is half the price. It is a great lens for all the portrait shooter & wedding photographers.

Thatโ€™s all for today. Thank you :)

HOW TO SHOOT ON NATURAL LIGHT - STREETS OF DELHI

Hello Guys!
I'm sorry I didn't want to stack EXIF data with the images for this series cause I wanted you all to read this blog.

Anyhow, I'm amazed by everyone appreciating this initiative. I'm going to stack light setup for sure and try my best to help you. 

I like to shoot on streets and I love to work with different people who don't belong to the industry I'm tied up with. It's an amazing experience and its challenging for the subject and the photographer, both! that makes it even more interesting, cause now we are talking something else altogether. 
I happened to get in touch with a friend in #Delhi ESHNA KUTTY she was very much interested to shoot with me & try something new, she also got this brand on board called เคฎเฅˆเค‚ (hindi: i am)

Me & Eshna went all around delhi travelling in auto, metro, cabs to shoot every place we coud cover. It was an intresting shoot. By this blog all I mean to say is try something new all the time don't stick to same genre and create same images. You have got to try your hands on Commercial, Editorials, Street Style, Personal Content, Beauty, Documentry, Landscape, ofcourse Fineart and many more. 

This whole photoshoot was shot in Natural Light. All I want to let you all know that better understanding of natural light can make your life easy. I used only those spaces where I found the perfect natural light to shoot my images. If you see my images has sun in the background but still have a nice fill light on the subject's face. Choosing the perfect area for the shot. 

Hope you all liked my blog.
