Instagram Follow Friday – Spring Has Sprung!

The vernal equinox finally arrived this week and we are seeing the bright colors of spring all across Instagram! This week we’re featuring Sony photographers who are getting outside and capturing the blooms. Give these outstanding accounts a follow and make sure you’re following @sonyalpha for more great photos captured by you, and shared by us. Tag your Sony photos with #BeAlpha for your chance to be featured in the next Instagram Follow Friday on AlphaUniverse.com.

Spring has officially arrived and we’re featuring a group of Sony photographers using their Sony mirrorless to capture the bright colors.

Dane Issaac – @dane.isaac

The Sony Alpha Imaging Collective is currently in Japan, and Dane Isaac is one of the lucky members on the trip. While his Instagram typically boasts thought-provoking portrait shots, he’s also been sharing the beauty of spring in Japan while he’s there. This beautiful photo of Japan’s cherry blossoms at the Tokyo Skytree was taken by Dane using his Sony α7R III and Sony 85mm f/1.4 G Master lens. See more images from their trip at #AICDoesJapan.

Mardi Labuguen – @mardimar

Mardi is a Sony photographer based in the Pacific Northwest. He posts mesmerizing landscapes and cityscapes to his Instagram that we just can’t get enough of. The tones and colors that he captures in his photos really pull you in and make you look closer to each and every detail. This image was taken during sunrise at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Oregon using his Sony α7R II and Sony 70-200mm f/4 G lens.

Christopher Rivero – @ccr_out_of_here

Christopher is an LA based photographer who’s all about travel, adventures and good times (as his Instagram bio states.) He mostly posts landscape photos from his travels that show the vastness and complexity of some of Earth’s greatest wonders. Chris is out there living the dream #BeAlpha life, and sharing it all with his followers. Here are some gorgeous shots taken at the Walker Canyon Poppy Fields at Lake Elsinore in California – taken using his Sony α7 III.

Olivia – @oli_the_rose_

Olivia is a Sony photographer based in Germany. We love and agree with the phrase in her Instagram bio: “Some bokeh a day keeps the doctor away.” She shares magical macro flower images to her account, all captured using her Sony α7R camera. Her photos combined with her cheery captions make this account an easy one to follow.

Cody Booth – @cdtwitchy

Cody is a Sony photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah, but he’s always up for traveling. His entire account is filled with breathtaking nature and wildlife shots taken with his Sony α7 III. He also posts inspiring captions that will make you get out there and start checking off items on that bucket list. Give him a follow for a great glimpse into the #BeAlpha lifestyle.
