Was on the fence about getting the Zeiss Batis 85mm or Sony 90mm macro. Both expensive lenses. I wanted the Batis, but it didn’t seem to be available. I ended up getting a Rokinon 85mm for $270. A couple of years ago I had one for a Nikon D900 and loved it.
I rarely like any photograph until I’ve been away from it for a year or so. Before I take out my camera I plan what I want to do. I try to work methodically. All that vaporizes into a cloud of distractions and confusions once I start shooting. I spent a lot of time preparing for this photo,
