We're rolling into the weekend with another fresh group of Sony shooters to follow on Instagram. In this edition of Instagram Follow Friday we’re excited to again highlight a trio of photographers who are just about to complete their nine-day journey capturing all of the public piers down the California coast with Sony α7R III cameras and 24mm f/1.4 G Master lenses, a Sony Artisan with an eye for fashion, an Alpha Collective member finding beauty in the darkness and two other Sony shooters who are using lighting in unique ways to bring new life to their captures.
