The lens is a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8. I had to brighten the pictures a bit in Photoshop, because they all were about a half step to a step underexposed, and the difference between the gloss black of the frame and matte black of the skins wasn't readily visible. Other than that, they haven't been retouched at all. Is there a trick to getting proper exposure when shooting a black subject? I was using the spot metering on the camera. Comments?
