Mostly I do outside portraits with my Sony, because the Eye Detect is great and simply works at distances, with my 135mm or 85mm Batis lenses. My 55mm f1.8 ZA is used mostly for inside portraits (and travel), and I find it is just great, so sharp with nice color. But with Covid 19 panic I am not doing much inside portraits or travel, so it sits quietly waiting to be useful again :frown:

Here are a few with the 55mm from 2019. Used 2 led lights in umbrellas on the 1st one and my AD200 in my 24" 16 sided softbox on the last 2.

Jim, excellent portraits indeed. :thumbup:
However... don't you think that the young lady in the first image is a bit too yellowish/orange ?
The other two are superbly illuminated !
thanks for posting such a nice shots ! :yahoo:
Thanks Antonio! That may be because it was someones else's LED lights, the 1st time I tried them, and the WB may be off. I definitely like shooting with my AD200's better than LED's.

Edit: I corrected the WB and replaced the photo above, it is more a natural tone now. The WB was set to Auto, but LED's have adjustable color temp and I don't remember where it was set, which is why the skin tone was off. Thanks
