My Sigma 70mm macro lens is the supporting actor to all these strong subjects. Had a lot of fun both making the pictures and then later, processing them in Lightroom. Sometimes I went for natural, but other times, I processed the images to match how I felt about them. Enjoy.
I was hand-holding my camera for these tight shots and often at 1/80 second or slower (I know, tsk, tsk). At any rate, I really liked the image above, but on close inspection, found there to be a little bit of camera shake (surprise, surprise). I brought the image into Photoshop as a Smart Object and applied the Shake Reduction filter to it. The first version was horrid, but when I retweaked the settings by reducing the Blur Trace Bounds to under 20, the result was much more natural and to my liking.
