p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Some love for the 85mm 1.4 GM..Urban Fashion photoshoot


With all my talk about the Sigma 135mm 1.8 art, it surely does not mean the 85mm 1.4 GM does not get any love from me. In fact, in this photoshoot I used it for about 85% of the shots and it rocked it.

All except the 2nd one and 5th one were crops as I did most of the shots full or half body to showcase the dresses since the event was created by the designer.
I kept the lighting basic as there were more people around a not so big area so only one strobe.
BTW it was good to see that from the 5 photographers, 3 of us were Sony shooters!

Gear Used:
Sony A7R II
Sony 85mm F/1.4 GM
Xplor600 with SMDV A90 Softbox

Here is a Comparison Review I did of the Sony 85mm 1.4 GM, Batis 85mm 1.8, Sony 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 85mm 1.4:

Great work Gabriel!
Only a photographer would appreciate the background even more than the model.

Yes just the Godox (Xplor600) in manual mode this time as there were people around and other photographers/models so I wanted to be able to move fast. The softbox is the SMDV A90
Thanks!!!

Thanks so much for such kind words! If 85mm is a focal range you love then the GM surely gets my vote as you can imagine

Great photos! They don't look like f1.4, maybe f2 or 2.8?

Nope, everything is at 1.4...I rarely stop down unless I really need to.

Thanks a lot!

All samples are at F/1.4
The only shot I stopped down was when doing a group shot of the models

This is that one stopped down shot:

I thought they were all f/1.4 but in a couple images, I thought that perhaps if had stopped the aperture down to f/1.6 or f/1.7 for that extra pop.
