Portrait shooting
Dec 27, 2013

Let me start of by saying I'm a rookie shooter and I created a makeshift studio in my living room for Christmas eve dinner. Living Room color is a very light cream with white back drop however I wasn't getting sufficient light. I did not want to use flash and I have no other lighting source.

I have the A58 with kit lens.

I did some research and found the Sony SAL50F18 DT50mm F1.8 SAM for portrait shooting.

I am also looking at Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG APO Macro Telephoto Zoom for some distance macro shooting.

This will be my first 2 lens and would like to know what you guys think?
