Photo Shoot.....Using a Taser? http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3361&photo-shoot-using-a-taser http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3361&photo-shoot-using-a-taser Sat, 30 Aug 2014 15:03:00 GMT Patrick Hall, photographer and co-founder of Fstoppers, says he's always throwing ideas around in his mind. One of the crazier ideas he had was taking some portraits right at the point when a person is being hit with a stun gun (taser gun). Although he realized the possible negative outcome of the experiment, he decided to go ahead and try it anyway. :) The results are hilarious. You can check out the video below.

Sony A7s Astrophotography http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3362&sony-a7s-astrophotography http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3362&sony-a7s-astrophotography Sat, 30 Aug 2014 10:06:00 GMT Sony a7s. It was spectacular. My Dad and I headed up to Haleakala late in the evening and were having so much fun we shot for about 3 hours. I was trying different techniques, this image was my favorite.

I was using a Canon 14mm 2.8 L II on the Sony a7s with just your basic Fotodiox adapter.

I stayed mostly in the ISO range of 3200-6400, no issues.

For this shot, Shutter speed was 13" at f2.8, ISO 6400




We sure had a lot of fun. It was amazing to me how clear the sky was up there at 10,000 feet!
