| Re: portraits- 5D+50 1.8 vs. 7D+17-55 |
I'd take both bodies, with the 17-55 on the 7D and the 70-200 on the 5D, and then use whichever one works best given the space you'll be in.
. . . Using a bit of tape to mark lines on the floor . . .
. . . Manual exposure mode, of course, so that nothing changes from shot to shot.
Makes sense, BrianO. I like your idea of setting place marks for the subjects. Consistency in background and distance to subject are a very good idea. Same goes for M mode, dial it in and then keep it the same!
Thanks for all the feedback folks. I'll bring both setups listed above, giving the 5D/70-200 priority, but having the 7D/17-55 ready just in case. Truth is, I will probably only get half or more subjects in the first pass and chase down the rest over a few weeks of meetings.
If you had a choice, would you choose a dark background or a light one?
