Hi. I'm a reasonably competent and experienced landscape photographer, about the push the borders of my comfort zone considerably. In three days I will be taking part in an on-the-spot competition whose theme is People and Place. The competition is in the venerable and ancient English city of York and I'm looking to combine both elements of the subject by shooting a model in an iconic setting. In the first case, I will be shooting one of York Minster's stone masons working in the Minster Stoneyard; in the second I will be shooting a female model at the city's Victorian railway station setting her stillness against the movement of commuters. I will be using natural light with my Sony A99 in combination with Sony Carl Zeiss SSM 16-35mm ZA f2.8, Minolta A 50mm, and Sony 100-300mm. I welcome any thoughts on this, particularly regarding settings and possible presets for the camera. Thanks in anticipation.

After about 11 years of doing photography, and especially street candids, I bought an A6000. I also started shooting mono for the first time. I've a feeling it will take me some time getting good at it, though.
