So thanks to the kindness of Sony, I was able to borrow the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 lens prior to it being released to the public. So I asked my followers what they wanted me to do with the lens and one of the most frequent requests was that I slap that puppy on my A6500 and show the world what the images looked like.
So I booked my crew and a model and we headed out into the middle of nowhere....literally. We went out to Salvation Mountain which is somewhere between Mexico and Palm Springs out in Niland, California. It is a CRAZY place!!
We did a number of shoots earlier in the day and as the sun was getting close to setting I threw the lens on my A6500 and did a quick shoot. I wanted the shoot to be something similar to the time frame I'd have when shooting for 10-15 minutes at a wedding...like the couple shoot after the ceremony just to show people what can be done in a short amount of time.
Lighting wasn't necessarily optimal, but I wanted to show what could be done in less than ideal situations. I used the Flashpoint Xplor 600 monolight with the Westcott Rapid Box XXL as a modifier. Below are some of the shots from the shoot. All of the images taken were shot wide open at f/1.8.
