NEX-6+Zeiss 16-70/4 emount (photoshoot + fashion show pics)

Just got home from a trip to the Philippines to attend the Cebu Sinulog and do a bit of shoots there as well as in Metro Manila area. I decided to just bring one zoom lens and keep my Zeiss primes at home. I've used various lighting in these pictures from natural light only to strobes ( I borrowed) and my F43am flash.

I am really ecstatic about how the images turned out although part of me wished that I took my Canon 5DMKII and 85/1.2 L II as I love throwing off the background. However, I wanted to travel light and a lot of times I shot at 70mm wide open to separate my model from the background. The only negative is I tried a few times to capture the model walking straight at me (with AF speed priority) but I ended up with a lot of out of focus shots. I had to improvise in my last shoot and use the flash (using single shot instead) and that went very well.

Here are links to the shoots:

As usual I welcome all comments.
