Love the bokeh in your shots! I can get somewhat similar using the 50/1.4 but not quite as nice. I've done composites to practice but it doesn't look quite right like a SOOC capture. May have to play more with the light placement.
Thank you it’s all about being as close to your subject as you can then having your background lights as far from the subject as you can!
I don’t always do it but for this image, it’s actually a panorama of around 15-20 images then I cropped it to a 4x5 ratio. I could have done the same composed shot with just 1 image but I wanted to take all images at MFD to maximize the size of the bokeh balls. I bought a macro focus rail which made it a lot easier to shoot this.
