      Hello Jesper! Many thanks for the kind words! :). I belive that the sharp and still soft look, comes out from the Fuji sensor and the 90mm F/2. I always use the Classicchrome film simulation, which is the starting point for me. Everything is at 0 value usually, and -2 noise reduction. Afterwards i always use the colorbalance tool in Photoshop. I add a bit cyan and yelow to the highlights, and blue and green to to shadow tones to my liking, and furthermore a bit blue and red to the midtones, it depends.It helps me to take away a bit red colour, what the ClassicChrome simulation rendres very well. Hereby the subject’s face pops out better,That is the part where i usually expose my pictures. On the top of this, i use a plugin called Alien Skin Exposure, and apply a filter which matches the colour sclae of the picture. I am just freestyling, and setting the proper exposure, and shadow tones how I like. I also use minor frequency separated re-touching and a bit dodge and burning. Shometimes i use also the selective colours tool to adjust the background colour, and mask it. Thank you for the reading!

        Are the 1st set of images shot with FUJI and a Takumar or with the 5D Mark I and a Takumar?

    The 90mm is a perfectly fine lens but is not for everyone. To use it indoors depending on your style of photography, you really need to have a lot of space between you and your subject. Just something to pay attention to before spending all this hard-earned money. Just my 2 cents. Your work is really first class !
