Flash portraits and MF lenses?
Apr 30, 2012

Would you use manual lenses if you do portraits with strobe?

I am a bit owrried to not get pre-occupied wiht the tehcnology - flash power, MF, aperture, speed ....so many things ot set.

I hope to try tomorrow. Any advice before that how to make the workflow more efficient is welcome

The combination I have in mind NEX-7, Pixel Pawn triggers, two strobes - HVL-56AM & YN-560, umbrella and/or small softbox, lenses Contax G 45/2 or 90/28.

I have the 85/1.4 minolta with Ea2 but it is a bit bulky. I will take it as backup
