Vitt Salvador @vittsalvador CAMERA USED Sony A9, 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master CAMERA SETTINGS 1/60 | f/2.8 | 6400 Post processed on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

“The Sony SEL50F14Z Zeiss Lens and the 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master are the lenses that I used during the Masterclass. The 50mm is a heavy lens, but it focuses really well and I experienced that when I took photos of the couple. As for the 24-70mm GM, Sir Jiggie made me try it. This lens is lighter than the 50mm Zeiss and it is more flexible for most shoots, enough for group photos and very good for portraits, it’s also sharp at f/2.8 based on my photos. At the Masterclass, this was the lens that I used the most since I needed a more flexible lens for the rest of the session. If I’m going to shift to mirrorless, this Sony lens might be my first choice.” – Vitt Salvador, photography winner


LJQ Multimedia CAMERA BODY: A7III A6500 CAMERA LENS: FE 70-200 mm F2.8 GM OSS, FE 85 mm F1.4 GM, FE 100mm F2.8 STF GM OSS CAMERA SETTINGS: Picture Profile 3, Manual ISO, shutter speed, and aperture +1 Exposure

“The Sony A7 III and A6500 makes our job easier especially with its fast focusing and easy to manage settings. The color and sharpness that it gives our videos is superb. It also has a great body stabilizer that makes the shot smooth even when it’s used handheld without a glider. Using the Sony A7 III gives us the confidence of a professional videographer. In this regard, we would like to thank Sony Philippines for giving us the chance to showcase our output together with the professional videographers of Manila. We have learned so much during the Wedding Masterclass workshop with Sir Jiggie Alejandrino and Mayad Academy last August 9, 2019. We never expected that we could achieve such recognition even though we are the youngest among the participants. Our Sony gear made us accomplish our video with such ease.” LJQ Multimedia, Video Winner
