My first portrait shot with a macro; I borrowed the Sigma 105/2.8 from a friend for this particular shot:
Also, another shot in the (tiny) studio session I had:
It's nice, but if the 56mm 1.4 that is supposed coming out next year is solid, I may consider swapping it. Not only should it be a better portrait lens, but the 60mm is the slowest focusing of the three and really a pain to use in low-light (it behaves much like my Sigma 50mm macro for Canon). The new lenses are rumored to notably improve that.
BTW if my posts get to be too much let me know and I'll cut back on what I'm posting here. My current plan is to post 5 photos a day to flickr, and therefor 1 post a day here until this set is done. It was a long trip, so I'll be going on for a bit even with trying to stick to only putting my favorites on flickr. Photography was a big point of this trip for me, and I'm actually kind of bummed I didn't spend the time I needed to set up some super interesting shots because I got caught up running around seeing things. One more reason to go back someday, now that I know the turf.
Heh, is it wrong when the photographer is starting to get jealous of the camera he's holding?
