Kawaii Gifts in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA
The owner was nice enough to let me try out my new Sigma 180mm f/2.8 macro
These sign photos were taken with the 24-70 f/2.8 Nikkor
Using a pair of Sea & Sea YS-110a strobes for direct and bounce flash
Direct flash, system on Gitzo 3 series tripod with Arca-Swiss Uniball head
Excellent detail with the Sigma 180
Going to bounce flash..
Bounce flash for one strobe, reduced power direct for second strobe
Trying out new Sigma 180mm f2.8 Macro
Visited Kawaii Gifts, a toy store in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. Shot with a pair of Sea & Sea YS-110a strobes, one bounce and one direct with diffuser, Nikon D800e, Gitzo 3 series tripod with Arca-Swiss monoball head.

Both strobes bounce
DSC_2907
f/5.6, narrow depth of field
f/16, much larger depth of field
f/16 seems to be the choice for working in this close
DSC_2912
Both strobes direct, with diffusers
Both strobes bounce

Grumpy cat close up
f/8, not quite enough depth of field to get both eyes sharp

These guys look like Politburo members at the May Day parade in Red Square... Shooting on monopod.
Excitable panda! Need more depth of field...
Cats and donuts? Need more depth of field...
Shooting handheld now, no supports
I bought one of these to take home...
System working fine for longer distance work
DSC_2984
DSC_2986
DSC_2990
DSC_2993
Handheld, takes 2-3 attempts to get focus point right
DSC_2997
Shifting around to minimize glare from flash easier handheld than with tripod
DSC_3007
Kneeling handheld is steady enough for close work
