Amara from Sensation Beauty wanted some portfolio photos for her  Make up website Sensational Beauty

Using the 85mm gave some good potraits, I am truthfully having a tough time with this lense, you have work it hard and it will eventually payoff with some stellar images. you then begin to realise the potential of this lense.

I went against the grain and did these ‘studio’ portraits with a shallow depth of field.  This allowed the tea lights in the background to simply dissolve in the bokeh.

Two canon speedlights in umbrellas did the lighting. The right hand one was used with a silver reflective and the left one was with a plain shoot through.  The flash power was reduced to 1/4 due to the wide open apetures used.
