    LiveShots got a reaction from AntDX316 in Problem with A7R4 and deep colors. *Help please*   
    I cropped the images a little. The images are very under-exposed, so there is little room for improvement.
    Spot metering was used with no Exposure Compensation on the two images below
    I adjust the Highlights all the way down to -100 to get the colors to begin to show.
    I can't see from EXIF if DRO was used, it does affect the RAW files and gives more latitude to widely varying lighting conditions
    This is from first image screen shot from CaptureOne settings:

    Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. This screenshot shows CaptureOne settings for the following image. I had to adjust color on the basketball as the highlights were blown out.  
     I am certain that others could probably edit these much better but this should give you a starting point

    Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. My recommendation when taking shots like this is :
    1. Turn on DRO,  as mentioned above it DOES affect RAW files and gives more latitude on color correction etc.
    2. Use AEL , focus on an area that is mid-lighting and toggle AEL this may help to give a median baseline for lighting, then recompose, focus and take the shot.

    Here's another way of editing, just changing Exposure Brightness and Shadow

    Hi from  South Africa.
    I am a wildlife and surfing photographer, based in the coastal town of Ballito. (Upper east coast of South Africa).
    My wife and I were both formerly Canon shooters for 19 years, but we switched to Sony equipment in 2017.  
    My wife specialises in video ( Sony HXR-NX 80), and up to now I have specialised in stills, but that is now changing with the delivery of my SonyA7Siii today! Woopwoopwoop!.😝
    In 2017 the Sony A9i just blew me away with it's focus acquisition/tracking, and it's general performance, including its lightness, and comparative cost against my old Canon kit (1DX MKii / 5D MKiv / 7D MKii, and  200mm-400mm f4, and other white lenses)  It was Sony vs Canon , and the performance of the Sony A9i / Sony 70mm-200mm f2.8 GM +2xTC  just blew me away.  I confirmed totally, that it was a major inflection point in the world of modern photography.😲
    The big test came on the Zambezi River (Namibian side), documenting the 2017 breeding season of the erratic-flying  Carmine Bee-eaters. On our return to SA, I immediately sent all my Canon equipment to our  main photographic dealer, with whom we have dealt for many years, and I replaced all my Canon gear with a second A9i body, 100mm-400mm GM , 24mm-70mm f2.8 GM,... But since those days, I have grown incrementally with all the Full Frame Alpha bodies to my present A9ii, A7Riv and, as from today, the A7Siii.
    I have just traded in my magnificent Sony 400mm f2.8 GM .  *I have never been a great fan of long primes, and prefer the versatility of decent long zooms as they provide me with far more versatility for my kind of work, which is in the wilderness areas of sub-Saharan Africa, where we don't know what to expect around the next bush. 😉
    My "go-to" rigs are 100mm-400mm GM +1.4xTC (Always), 200mm-600mm G, on a  Gimpro Gear - double Pano Head  (One for stills, and one for video) , on a Monopod,  and next to me, for wider shots, either the16mm-35mm f2.8 GM / 24mm-70mm f2.8 GM / 70mm-200mm f2.8 GM.  
    This is my first post on this forum

    This was actually more of an experiment. It is very rare to see clear skies in my area. I grabbed the closest camera and shot these photos handheld. I didn't have time to setup a tripod, etc. I found it interesting to see the same moon in daytime and nighttime.
    Daytime Moon: Sony A6500, 70-350 mm lens at 350 mm, f/8, 1/2000 sec, ISO 800, handheld, file size reduced for web.
    Nighttime Moon: Sony A6500, 70-350 mm lens at 350 mm, f/8, 1/1600 sec, ISO 6400, handheld, file size reduced for web.
