Returning to my family's homeland is something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember. Vietnam is known for its beautiful landscapes and vibrant culture, but it’s also an important part of my family’s past and plays a large part in defining who I am as a person today. As a first generation American born Vietnamese, my culture has always been an important part of my life and I couldn't be more excited to embark on this journey with fellow Alpha Collective member @lisabao Follow along as we share our story of discovering our native culture and reconnecting with the history of our ancestors." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 GM | 25mm | f5 | 1/800 sec | #SonyAlphaFemale #BeAlpha

A Southern California sunrise perspective captured by #AlphaCollective member @stanmoniz using the new 24mm f1.4 GM lens. Here's a photography tip from Stan 👉🏽 "Don't be afraid to drop your exposure compensation dial by 2/3rds of a stop for moments like these. It will help significantly with controlling the highlight in the sky making for a more rich and contrasted look." | a7R III | 24mm f1.4 GM | f/2 | 1/100 | ISO 400 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

  • 📷: @marshdog_productions "This shot was taken on the walking bridge leading to the Lady Bird Johnson Grove in Redwoods National Park. I always look for simple compositions when I’m shooting. It’s easy to make an image look super busy and congested, but to strip it down into simple components can really draw a viewer in and make them question what lies beyond just a single frame." | a7R II | 16-35mm f4 | 16mm | f/6.3 | 8 sec | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

    📷: @aroundq "Have you ever driven down the California Coast? You can find this beautiful lighthouse just 50 miles south of San Francisco. This is one of my favorite locations to shoot as I can catch sunset and the Milky Way." | a7 II | 16-35mm f4 | 16mm | f13 | 1/60 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

  • Photographer @aidenawhite shares this insane sunset captured in San Diego, CA 🔥🔥 "This photo is snapped at a lake where there was a canoe waiting in perfect composition. My tip for sunsets is to wait about 15 minutes after the sun goes down- that is when the colors start to really come out!" | a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 | f14 | ISO 160 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

    Expert photographer and #SonyArtisan @don_smith_photography shares this shot of the moon rising over Pinnacles National Park in California. What is your favorite National Park to go shoot at? 🏔 • • Here's more from Don behind this shot 👉🏽 "I captured this image a 93% Waxing Gibbous moon rise over the west-facing high peaks at Pinnacles National Park in California. It took a lot of plotting with software to figure out the right time to be there!" | a7R III | 100-400mm (with 2X extender ) | 800mm | f11 | 1/60 sec | ISO 200 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

    A long exposure capturing the essence of San Francisco, taken by photographer @k.whatswong with the a6000 👉🏽 "I personally feel this is one of the best locations in San Francisco to capture everything you want of the city. Light trails, Golden Gate bridge, and the city, all captured together! This specific shot is comprised of three images stacked together to capture all the trail lights." | a6000 | 35mm f1.4 | f/8 | 130 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha

  • An insane aerial view above Iceland captured by photographer @gardarolafsphotography 👀 "The rivers of Iceland look breathtaking from above, especially when the sun is out. Captured while flying over the highlands of Iceland in a small airplane, with my hands frozen, loud wind in my ears and a big smile on my face. I recommend fast shutter speed for aerial photography to keep the images sharp, at least 1/800." | a7R II | 24-70mm f2.8 GM | f11 | 1/800 | ISO 400 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

    📷: @black sail_ "Towards the end of the hiking season the climate in Norway can be quite harsh. We had a very cold and wet trip there in October, but the constant rain delivered some of the most spectacular waterfalls. The autumnal hues were also just beginning to pop! Pictured here is the exact moment that I ran out of dry clothes" | a7R II | 28-70mm f3.5-5.6 | f8 | 1/250 | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

    #SonyArtisan @tonygalephoto proves that sometimes poor weather can create amazing photographic opportunities 🌈 "Rainbow over sea stack at Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park. It had been rainy all day, but while we were at the beach the sun came out and created this amazing rainbow." | a7R III | 100-400mm | 181mm | f/5.6 | 1/2500 sec | ISO 400 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha

    Photographer @mikaelyanhayk shares this shot from his hometown Liège, Belgium. Here's a tip from the photographer himself 👉🏽 "You might be wondering why I shot this at f2. The reason is that it gives a smooth blurry foreground and even at f2 you can get a very sharp image with a 28mm prime lens." | a7 II | 28mm | f2 | 1/8000 sec | ISO 200 | #SonyAlpha #BeAlpha
