Self Portrait: Messing around with new toys.

Well not exactly new, I have had a Sony NEX 6 for a while now. I am and have been seriously contemplating moving to a mirrorless camera setup because of all the new opportunities of portability that they bring. Think of the Rangefinder cameras of the 60s and 70s, even to the point, that in some White Houses, that was the only thing that you could use because of the noise. I think these new cameras give greater access with quality that is now surpassing film in many ways.  

A few days ago though, I saw a function that said Smart Remote, and I thought, "huh." Well turns out it was a function via the PlayMemories function that allowed me to use the remote setting on my camera, and even focus from the iPad (or smartphone). I used two Rotolights, one for main/hair and the other for fill. I am very impressed with the results. If you have any questions about the setup, feel free to comment.
