Its been a while since i did some portrait photography so this morning i set up the A7r4 with the S0ny 85mm lens. I used the self timer and i wanted to test the lens with natural light so i positioned myself in the widow and let the light pass through the window. I was Using f3.5 ISO 160 and a shutter speed of 1/20. I used a remote trigger for both images.
Then i got my Beautiful wife Ruth to pose for me with a USB soft light i purchased from Amazon. My settings stayed the same. I used a black backdrop and but i am so rusty it was not positioned right so i have to do another session Sunday, but these images should give yo a good idea of what the Sony 85mm can produce.
A tip to remember is when you look at the LCD screen make sure the Brightness is not set to Summer as it gives you a false reading of what the image looks like, so when i loaded the images from today they were all dark and under exposed so i had to brighten them a little or should i have increased the shadow i am not sure.
