Golden hour in the mountains never disappoint. Photo captured by photographer @ag.shotz 🙌🏾🙌🏾 "Lightning conditions are key to provoke emotions. Try to use light as a medium to create extra focus on the subject you want to accentuate. Light is such a powerful phenomenon that can’t be forgotten when capturing a quality image. It pushes and pulls warm and cool tones and creates extra depth in your scenery. Use it to your advantage." | a7R III | 24-70mm f2.8 GM | 53mm | f8 | 1/100 | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @andyhvu “Would you dive into this freezing cold water to get a photo like this? Moment that I saw this perfect reflection, I envisioned this photo in my head. We did a few back flips and this dive. Kudos to my friend @dannytrz for enduring this freezing cold water. I shot this on my a7R III on burst mode with 10 fps. All the shots came out equally sharp but this one is my favorite." | a7R III |16-35mm f2.8 GM | f6.3 | 1/640 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @aliaumec_photography "Shooting the Milky Way in Belgium is quite tricky due to light pollution. I found this small lake that is somehow well protected from city light. I arrived there at sunset and waited a few hours until the milky way was perfectly aligned. The high ISO quality of the Sony a7 III helped me to capture a very clean shot." | a7 III | 14mm f2.8 | 20 sec | ISO 6400 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

An insane view of Egypt's Pyramids of Giza captured by #AlphaCollective member @oveck 👀 "Shooting at popular places can make it challenging to get a stand out shot. In this case, I really wanted to capture the Pyramids of Giza in a different perspective. Since they're so close to the city, I wanted to get a shot that showed the ancient and new architecture. Having the 70-200mm G Master lens is great since you can compress the foreground and background nicely so both are prominent but the haze made it extra difficult to get both sharp enough. I was happy with the results because the haze during sunset gave it a little bit of a Bladerunner vibe." | a7R III | 70-200mm f2.8 GM | 200mm | f4 | 1/640 | ISO 400 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Sunset at France’s floating city captured by photographer @djesper "A friend and I decided to try and find a different composition at this frequently photographed spot. When shooting at really wide focal lengths, I like to get as close to my foreground as possible. This creates leading lines and a lot of depth in a photo." | a9 | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | 17mm | f13 | 25 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

📷: @samoetiker "Two times a year, as the sun sets over Monument Valley in Utah, the shadow of the West Mitten lines up perfectly on the East Mitten, creating a really cool mirror image. I happened to be there on the exact day that this occurred and it was one one of the most memorable sunsets I've witnessed to date." | a7 III | 24-105mm f4 | 105mm | f5.6 | 1/200 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

Views from Las Vegas captured by #AlphaCollective member @dylan.schwartz. We are currently at the Be Alpha Community Celebration in Las Vegas and are sharing the scene on our Instagram Story- check it out now to see what's going on! #BeAlpha

"Las Vegas is like no other city. It’s an amazing experience shooting Vegas from the air, especially at sunset. I love the way all the lights come on while there’s still just enough sunlight in the sky to create some very compelling and unique conditions. While shooting from a moving helicopter, you need to keep your shutter speed really fast, so using high ISO becomes necessary. This makes it one of the best ways to show off how clean high ISO images are on the a7R III." #SonyAlpha

Photography duo @brotherside shares this unique perspective in Hamburg, Germany 👉🏽 "The collision of people, architecture, and traffic makes urban environments interesting to photograph. On the other hand, composing images in such an environment can be challenging due to the high number of elements in the frame. In those situations, a change of perspective is a good way to fill the foreground and lessen the impact of excess subjects."

"This particular street was filled with parked cars, which didn’t fit well with the classic architecture. Instead of doing the classic lookup, I used the car rooftop to hide the extra cars and create a more interesting composition." - @brotherside

📷: @grantplace "This shot was taken this past weekend in Silver Bay, MN, on the shores of Lake Superior in -15°F. Waves can crash higher than this rock and the sea smoke reigns almost 100 ft high above the water. This was specifically taken in Tettegouche State Park after it had just snowed. It was difficult to find proper and safe footing this close, but I always put safety first to get the shot." | a7 III | 16-35mm f4 | 16mm | f4 | 1/60 sec | ISO 400 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

The Avenue of the Baobabs in Madagascar captured by photographer @tothewonderblog "Under giants of another era! For this shot, I decided to add more drama and visual impact by light painting the trees. I love using high ISOs with my a7R III because this way I can shoot at shorter exposures for a sharper and more defined Milky Way." | a7R III | 14mm | f1.8 | ISO 10,000 | 10” | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha
