Gonna continue the trend of "macro" shots with this poor Coca Cola Polar Bear that Best Buy was giving away for free last weekend. :(
Nothing crazy about this shot too. Just my video LED light(my flash triggers ran out of battery and I don't have any spare AAA's lol) with a blue filter raised halfway(to get white light at the bottom and the blue above), my Vivitar 70-210 at f/8 and the presets Andeeeh provided in the 2016 thread.

I just look for freelance gigs and portrait sessions personally. I do the portrait stuff for fun, but I do my very best to stay away from free events these days. Sucks that you're hourly at your job though and not getting paid for down time.
Nope, those only come in Canon, Nikon and Sony's A-mount(which you can get a $200+ adapter for the E-mount and have the full gamut of features but eh).
Interestingly enough, I got approached by another company today that wants me to do inventory photog for a multiple number of car dealerships so essentially the work doesn't run out. But it's contract(so not only do they not do your taxes for you, there's no benefits either) and you get paid per car instead of per hour and the quota is about 30 cars a day(and 20-40 shots). I'm interested but idk coz I'd be using my A7 instead of a company camera and I'm not exactly sure if I want to put my camera to that kind of abuse.
Freelance stuff is hard to come by right now though coz nobody just wants to be outside in January and February lol. Seriously, it's below 30F right now in fncking Texas. I literally stepped outside to get groceries today and I felt like I was gonna freeze to death haha.
