Just posted all the photos in a new blog post if you want to take a closer look: 💛

Wtf a random Kristina cameo lmao this model was soooo good and the edit tones sooo soft! Amazing as always Julia and welcome to the Sony family! Lol
Alex Iby
This location is incredible, it looks like a dream! And I loved all the pics, especially the one with Kaitlynn sitting on the floor with the backlight of the sun! Cheers Julia :)
Anita Sadowska
Your model looks like an absolute angel! She is so beautiful without makeup. It only shows that with skills like yours you don’t need a team of people to make your shots amazing! Oh and I struggle with the viewfinder focus switching the screen off on my small Sony too, it can be so frustrating 😂😅
Ramy Kabalan
Where's the canon strap? 😂
Jade Savage
I love how your voice overs aren’t a constant stream throughout the whole video ( if that makes sense lol) your videos are so nice and relaxing to watch ☺️💕
Marc Klaus
Amazing job Julia! Every time you do a video with Sony gear, you convince me that I should consider switching! haha
Zed Pro Media
That location is so dope!
Jae Jae
yessss! a no makeup shoot is the best :)
Bilal Izaddin
That lens is just magic through it on any body and it work I have adapter for fuji and used it with film simulation it worked and gave me colors better than native 35mm ,but for speedy shoots and walking ,movement shots I think canon 5dm4 still better
Michael Sasser
THANK YOU for putting out such great content. We need more photographers like you on YouTube!
Merlin Alfonso
The images are lovely, but the size, weight and shape of that camera + adapter + lens combination is terrible. It looks so ungainly and front-heavy.
Jing Hell
what’s your principle of cropping limbs and head?
Michelle Cox Photography
Such a fun photoshoot! :) Gorgeous location and as always love your model!

If you change the camera's priority from "release"/"balanced" to "focus", the focus accuracy would be even better significantly.
Ferenc Bodor
Oh my gosh! The RAWs look so nice! Sony A7III + Canon 35mm 1.4 mkII is probably THE dream setup! :D
just a heads up, Sony cameras have an option in their menu that you can turn off, to keep the LCD from turning off. By default, it is set to "auto," so you have to switch it to either EVF or LCD otherwise it will automatically alternate based on the orientation of the camera. I just figured this out a week ago:)
Ran Bar-Levi
The photos are beautiful and sharp but the colors seem colder and less life like than your canon ones. Sony has the tech but canon has the color science better than everybody.
Kyle and Allysin
Seriously your photography inspires me so much! You're amazing!!
That Modern Dude
Wow you work incredibly well with models. Awesome video keep it up #roadto100k
Panha veng
She is super beautiful <3 and you skill is amazingly fantastic <3
Regina Loppacher
I love how Kristina is present in almost all the videos!
Dylan Perkins
That's such a cool location! Also, I would like to just take a moment to say "Thank you" for actually including your interaction with the model in your BtS videos. As someone that is very new to portrait photography, that kind of stuff is both very interesting and very useful to me :D
Greg Goodenough
If you leave the screen slightly tilted, the viewfinder wont turn off the LCD. The camera will know you're using the LCD, not the viewfinder
Regina Loppacher
it's weird that when you are taking photos i'm looking around the background thinking what other places i would take pictures too
Mathew Suarez
I want to see you do a comparison video of the canon 24-70 and the Sony 24-70 g-master
Gone Zapatero
She is beautiful, nice shots too
Luciano Pizzatto Kasecker
Make sure to use AF-C to use the EYE AF continuously.
3:50 THE BOKE(H) !!!!!!!!!!!!
Kamal Chebbah
Paul Alexander
Eye AF is defo my fav feature of the sony cameras
Chava Marquęz
I need a 35mm lens in my life...
Eric Esser
Lovely, sold me on the 35mm focal length. Thinking of the distagon native 35 for a7 iii. Do you know if continuous AF works with your adapted setup?
your only problem with this camera will soon be solved! sony is making a 6million dot 240 hz evf upgrade for 400$! That's 3 times the resolution and double the refreshrate!
Jaskaran Singh
i have no words how pretty the pictures are, location (oh my god, how did you find such beautiful location and lighting ahhh i am going crazy) eagerly waiting for the full review and specially autofocus tips tricks.
Yasmina Bauly
I love your style and your videos are so inspiring! Keep up the good work & thanks for the content you provide!
Claire SUN
more with a7iii❤️!!:)
Paul Frohnau
beast camera for sure
Harisman Satria
Great photos, waiting for the A7III review
Waldo Wolf
Funny that people were always bragging about the "canon colors" when these tones are just ridiculously beautiful! Sony really did an amazing job with their new color-science in the a7III series!
Ana Velasquez
I really want this camera now lol
Geri Brn
Time to sell that canon gear haha. but at least try out these lenses: 28mm F2.0, 55mm F1.8 and 85mm F1.8
Fangli Chandra
Why you dont shoot nikon ?
Julius Ho
More 35mm f1.4 ii and A7iii combo please
A wild Kristina appears!
Jaden K
Metabonz right?/
Polani Almoni
Canon colors are the best, easy editing.
Angie Gray
I have the A7II and LOVE it! I also have the little A6300 and it's pretty amazing as well....
Kketansa Art
Aeyy! WHY are you attaching a Canon lens to Sony A7III? X( ... X(( ... X( Use Sony lens. Now!
TT Smasher
Btw, move the screen out a bit so that the camera knows you’re using the screen and not activating the view finder
TT Smasher
She’s too beautiful, love blonde
Choi Alcabasa
I would love to see you try the 50L, 85L and the 135L
Ryan Tan
Would be nice to see it on the 85mm f1.2
steven eades
So basically you're forced to use the live view mode and touch screen to select focus points? must be super hard on batteries right?
I'd love to see how well the A7III focuses with the older Canon 24-70 version one. I'm considering the Sony body, but I love that lens, and use it all the time. Knowing how well it focuses will help the decision process.
LiA studio
Please dont leave canon :(((!
Me Myself
90% focusing rate is not good. Get a sony 35mm or get a 1dx foryou canon glass.
Bella Pelagio
Paddington reservoir is one of my favourite locations for a shoot in Sydney!
It seems like the Canon had nice colors out the camera and even after edits. But you do so well at making anything beautiful
Canon 135mm please.
These look incredible! Can’t wait to get this camera
kc chen
Amazing video, love your voice over comments. thank for sharing. cheers.
Wilson Eusebio777
Always so Pretty Julia. GOD Bless 😊😇🙏
Great Shoot. Amazing Beautiful shots! Good video as well.. Link to the music Maybe? Love the track in the background. Goes great with the vibes of the video.
Mark Harris
As always a brilliant video, I think for portraiture mirrorless is going to be the future.
Oh snap Julia got the A7III! It's go time! Bye Bye Canon!
Great video! How did you activate the touchscreen option? Thanks
sony does make some of the best cameras out there :)
Great video Julia

I find that I rarely use focus points where there are people in the frame (especially when there is just one, like in this photoshoot). I set my Focus Mode to multi, enable Face Detection, use Eye-Af, and boom, I can just focus (lol) on the composition, lighting and proper exposure.
SONY Adicto
Dis you try Autofocus Continuous!?? AF-C is better for Eye-AF as it locks the focus on the eye, avoiding what you mention at 4:30 with my Sony native lenses and the right shutter speed, none of the photos are out of focus. Like 100% success ratio 😛 That’s not actually possible with Single Autofocus as you or the model can move slightly and then the eyes won’t be in focus due to the f1.4 aperture.

I like how you compare the cameras, the gen3 (including the a73) are a huge step up from the older gen. My gut feeling is you might be even more pleased with a a7R3 since the lcd and EVF are better and you even have more detail to work with. Lastly if you feeling on the sony vs canon is already 'good' then given how much you can tune, change and/or add by going native lensss, adding l-brackets, adding your own tweaks probably means its a good upgrade for you.
Louis Luzuka
Can you please use the 50mm and 85mm
85mm or 50mm F1.2 would be good to see... .. with regard to the way you are focusing .. I have the a7riii ... I just have it on AF-S or AF-C & wide area then I hit the AEL button (which I have assigned to eye-AF).. perfect focus every time... I dont use or need to use flexi spot or have to move my focus point.. this way its a much quicker way to shoot thinking of your work flow.... ..lovely model & great pics by the way..
Such beautiful pictures!!! <3

Julia, you must absolutely love this body!
Docta Pepper
When are we getting married, Julia?
Mike Lam
You can turn off the EVF auto-detect in the settings!
Mike Lam
85mm canon on the a7iii!
Howie Mudge Photography
The A7 III is an amazing camera as is the a7r III. The eye autofocus is ideal for portrait photography and if you consider your using Canon glass on a Sony body that's mega impressive. Nice video.
Albert Wong
I switched over from Canon 5d Mark IV to Sony A7Riii and A7iii. I definitely would like to know your impressions and see how they may be different and same pro and cons. Look forward to it.
I'd like to see the 70-200mm. One of the reasons why I only use my A7R II for hobby is because Canon lenses + the adapter draw so much battery and I was wondering what's the efficiency penalty on the battery w/ using Canon vs. Sony. I bring my Canon DSLRs still when I travel and do events.
Baldur Tryggvason
Awesome video with very a natural and beautiful model. So glad you like the Sony, I just covered fully from Canon to Sony when the A7rIII came out. Looking forward to more shoots with that camera and I would love to see you use the 85mm 1.2II with it.
Exciting and excited to hear your thoughts about this camera! I'm still using my Canon 60D but I'm currently selling a lot of old stuff I don't need anymore and I plan on buying the A7ii. I'd love the iii but the price difference is so big, I'm getting that one after I graduated university and got a really job towards the end of the year. But the iii seems to be like a huge improvement over the ii, not so much in image quality but battery life, menu, ergonomics and stuff. You mentioned that you like the color rendition of the iii just as much as the one of the ii. I read that the iii is supposed to be a huge improvement in terms of skin tones, did you notice anything about that? One question: the image at 6:32, you cut off her foot but still have quite some negative space above her head, was this intentional? I feel like the "beginner way" to approach this photo would be to lower the camera to get her foot in the frame but this one made for a surprisingly nice photo to the photo still gives me the feeling that I wanna lower the camera :D

Great video!
Just earned a new subscriber. Great photos and video.
congrats on the a73 :)

Eye-AF is a game changer for shooting portraits for me! Please shoot with Sony's legendary "budget Batis" FE 85mm f1.8 for a future video!!!
Nick Minderman
Julia I'm so proud of you picking up the 7iii. I'm watching the way you hold your camera and lense, when you pickup a Sony gmaster lense, you can set the little focus hold button to the eye AF and I'm listening to your camera and your in afS try that in AFC. Way better.
Enzo Jerez berlin
Excellent! Thanks.
Rick Mentore
This was very entertaining! For me the highlight was, how "snappy the adapted lens" were. The rapport with your model was also cool!
Rick Mentore
Any off camera flash, I could not tell? Amazing, minimal shoot!
Jim Penn
Congratulations Julia on your a7iii! Thank you for this very informative natural light tutorial. Super work! What is your experience with the Eye AF on this lens? I have had my a7iii for about a month now and love it!
Nathan Bryant
Slowly converting. Yes! *side eyes with smirk* Mentally this builds even more confidence for me and I'm sure sooooooo many others. Mainly, for me because one you’re a great photographer and make great videos with Dan. Two because you now have the same camera body as I do. I just use the Sigma MC-11 adaptor and Canon 50mm 1.2. Focus is awesome! Being Sigma has their native lens for Sony now, I really feel they're committed to Sony. So I really feel I made a good choice with the Sigma adaptor.
Nathan Bryant
Maybe turn off the viewfinder to stop the sensor from thinking you're looking through it which turns off the LCD?
