Yep with a 6D. 1st one @ f/2.2 and 2nd @ f/2.8. ISO 50.

Thanks :-)

You brought up an interesting question Raymond. You mention that you are using ISO 50? Do you find any significant difference in using that extended low range of 50 (compared to 100) on your images. While I know it does go as low as 50, I have not found any practical reason to use that low ISO. Being the 6D, I definitely use it for the usable range in the other direction. I feel very comfortable at 25600 and even 51200 if I need to really push it.
Just curious about the reasons for using the low end since I have not really thought to use it myself. Thanks in advance for you insight.

Had forgotten how good this lens is for portraits, I use it mostly for indoor sports.

The reason why I used ISO 50 was to use the fastest sync speed with the flash at a larger aperture possible, as I try to keep away of going down the High Speed Sync road as it cuts down power and eats up the batteries.

Thanks

My uses for ISO 50 are typically to use a wide open aperture, I have to use a lower ISO than 100 because my SS is already at 1/8000. Or if I'm limited to only 1/200 SS while using a flash.

Makes sense. I was just curious why you would use it. But the reasoning is exactly why it is there. I have an ND filter I use for the same purpose. I just wanted to make sure I was not missing something.
Thanks for the response.

Lovely shot Raymond. Love the softness of that green bokeh behind.
If I can offer some constructive criticism, one thing I noticed that was a bit distracting is the treatment you did on her teeth. I'm guessing you desaturated them and shifted the WB slightly cooler to make them seem whiter and cleaner?
I'd recommend dialling that down a touch in intensity, as it can often give your subject a look of having 'deadtooth' if it's too strong.

Thanks!

Her teeth were desaturated and nothing else was done to them.

PS On camera flash was bounced off a white wall behind me (as you can see if you look into her eyes) with a 1/4 CTO gel to get that proper job result as taught by Neil van Niekerk. :)
