90mm Macro + α6000: Is This The Ideal Camera & Lens For Portraits?

The Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS lens is one of the most highly regarded in its class. It's a top-tier macro lens and it's strengths go far beyond just flowers and jewelry. In a new series on Imaging Resource, Dave Pardue uses this outstanding lens on a Sony α6000 for portrait photography.


"For this reason I enjoy the longer range for certain purposes, and there's the added benefit that you don't need to be too close to your subjects when capturing moments. Canned smile shots can sometimes still work, but how boring compared to capturing people acting naturally! This is much easier to do at the 135mm length than more common lengths like 50mm, especially when shooting outside." -Dave Pardue, Imaging Resource
