Webinar Description

If you are an artistic portrait photographer, and you are particular about details, Idongesit has curated this webinar for you. Testing the Sony 85mm F1.4 GM under different lighting environments and with the A7R4, this full frame lens is Idongest’s go-to for capturing beauty shots and details, a signature of his work. With an aperture range of F1.4 to F1.16, he demonstrates how the 1.8 F-stop creates a great shallow depth of field and flattering bokeh, and touches on how the lens makes retouching easy.
