    Default Tamron 90mm Macro Lens

    Just wondering if the above lens works good in portraiture shots as it's macro capability.

    Good for close up shots on the eyes...


    I am NOT a PROfessional photographer and photography is NOT my hobby

    TS is asking if it is good for Portraits. Closeup on the eyes is like marco. Btw, its better to take the eyes of someone not wearing Contact lens

    Btw, just wondering if it is the flashes that gives the star and heart-shaped reflection in the eyes?


    To the TS,
    Yes, its good for portrait as well.

    Is that a lightsphere with some star and heartshaped attachments?

    Are you talking about the Sigma 105mm f2.8 macro? I do not think that lens is good for portrait because I find it has poor bokeh... but that is my opinion only...

    Think he is referring to the AF Micro 105mm f/2.8D or AF-S Micro 105 f/2.8 VR.
