I'd like to see this shot, but with him facing the light, or at the very least, maybe have someone (your son ) hold a gold reflector to light up his darker side. For the price, this or its bigger brother would make a world of difference.
It's MF focus only.do you have AF with that lens or is it all MF?
No, awesome advice! Much appreciated. 4-5 months? Wow! You're good Sir... really damn good!
