Love the way this lens renders... very little to no post processing is ever needed.

Nice shots, Talley! What did you use for lighting? Flash or reflector?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

These are natural. Just a zoo trip and I catch shots when the kids let me lol. Her sister sat down so I told her to look at me give me a mean face and I captured the below and then next thing I know my youngest is sitting there waiting for her photo to be taken lol... I just let her do her thing and she does cute stuff naturally.

this one is sooc.

Yes.... seems you do need to MA it. on this lens even a +1 worth of adjustment can make a big difference.

Also this lens prefers to be shot at knee height. Kneel down and then take your shot. Well... maybe this lens doesn't prefer it but try it out and you'll see what i'm talking about. The separation really improves.
