Re: The 23/1.4 as a portrait lens

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions.

Miki's comment on the placement of the head in front of the golden reflection is good, it's not something I usually pay attention to. I'm aware of the metal rod poking her head but not good enough with Photoshop to clone it out, at the time there was not space to move it out of the frame.

As far as lighting the subject goes, I did position her under a street lamp (you can tell from the shadow on her face and the orangeish skin color), otherwise she'd have been completely dark, but a fill flash would have been ideal, yes. Off camera flash is actually my favorite thing to do, here's an example shot with the 35/1.4 and Yongnuo flashes.
