This is from a shoot I did last April. The designer picked his favorites and I edited them right after the shoot, but picking my favorites and editing them has been taking much longer between other projects. I went through all the RAW files again tonight and decided to edit this one. One reason I loved this shoot was because the clothing designer rented a Canon 85mm f/1.2L for me to use, which I had never had the chance to play with before this. I really loved it, but honestly I think the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 is going to be my next lens purchase; the Canon is just way too expensive!

Captured in all natural light.

I remember her from the other post. Great job, and I agree with you on Canon lenses, they cost a lot more!

And one more of the same outfit.

Thank you. And yeah, I wish this wasn't such an expensive hobby; I'm terrible at saving up money, so it's rare that I make a camera or lens upgrade.

I feel like the crop on the first is a little tight, or something. I like the second better. The somewhat masculine pose works well with the styling.

Thanks for the feedback. I like the pose in the 2nd as well; it makes her look very strong to me.

That's why my last lens I bought was a 1970's OM mount lens, old but worth the 20 bucks!:lol:

Nice! I haven't bought a lens in 2 years. It was my 135mm, but I'm thinking about selling it and getting a Sigma 85mm f/1.4 to replace it. After that I want a 35mm.

That's what the old 70' lens is, 135mm f/2.8. A 85mm f/1.4 would be great lens to have, I see why you want one! :)

I actually like photo 1 better than photo 2. I like the tight crop and think the model's pose is more unique than the second one. Both are really good though really impressed with your work! :1247:

I bet that old 135mm can still render a beautiful photo. What body do you use it on?

I love my 135mm, but it can be a pain in the ass to use sometimes because of it's long focal length. I feel like an 85mm f/1.4 would give me an almost identical look and is a much easier focal length to work with.
