Jason Lanier Shoots The 100mm STF & 70-200mm GM In Cuba

While in Cuba Sony Artisan of Imagery Jason Lanier traveled out of Havana to Vinales to shoot portraits on a tobacco farm using the Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G Master and the Sony 100mm f/2.8 STF G Master mounted on the Sony α7R II. 

First using the 70-200mm f/2.8 G Master, Lanier indicated, "I chose the 70-200 to start with because it gave me such a flexibility to go from some of those zoom shots that you just saw to shooting some up close shots that you are going to see here."

With the 100mm f/2.8 STF G Master lens, Lanier was able to shoot incredibly sharp images of this tobacco farmer working on the same farm he has been working on for over 70 years. Lanier stated, "more than anything, we just got some really, really cool shots. It's really fun to be able to document something like that." 

On the benefits of using both the Sony 70-200 mm f/2.8 G Master and the Sony 100mm f/2.8 STF G Master, "it was really great to be able to switch from a portrait lens into a macro lens.. that 100mm STF is something else."
