The Rokinon 85mm f1.4 Aspherical on the Sony A7

My oldest son just got his first pair of glasses, and I figured it would be a great opportunity to do a little "studio" session. It's also a perfect opportunity to test out my Rokinon 85mm f1.4 on the A7. It's a bit of a generic looking portrait, but for what it is, I'm quite happy with the end result!



If anyone is interested, here's the lighting setup & equipment I used:



I used 2 Yongnuo speedlights. 1 in the umbrella & the other directly behind my son pointing backwards onto the back drop:


Triggered using these inexpensive Cowboy Studio wireless triggers:



An umbrella softbox at about a 45 degree angle on the right:


A silver reflector on the left:


And an old black fleece blanket for the backdrop. I've found that black fleece turns into a nice gray when lit with a speedlight.
