hello all...im looking for a way for me to take a picture like the one below...the photog is a friend of a friend of a friend...and he has been in the business for a while...im just asking if i could take something similar with my current body the t2i. If you think my body can handle the IQ then what lens do you think i can use to reproduce something like this...i already have a 17-55 which is a fantastic lens but i cant reproduce the sharpness in these shots...any help would be much appreciated ! TIA!

Camera used : Nikon D3
Lens : Unknown except for focal lengths in the 24mm - 85mm range mostly shot at 2.8

Your 17-55 with off camera flash should do it

These look like they were taken in natural light.

i believe on certain shots a flash was used...for me if i could get remotely close to shots like these i would be happy...i also believe a fair amount of post processing is needed to get her skin that perfect.
here is the model getting ready for a cat walk in hk...

OP, just a heads-up, but I'd change those images to links before a mod sees them. Forum rules only allow the posting of images that belong to you.

By the way, the T2i is a very capable camera. With that body paired with your lens, in the right light, you should be able to reproduce these shots. You'd need to do some post-processing, but they are attainable shots with that combination, in my opinion.

Best of luck to you!

The first image looks like there was some after shot editing done... a little sloppiness gives some clues...
The bush has some spots that are blurry and others in perfect focus
Above the bush, left hand side, black box, half the grill is blurry diagonally.
The other box, perfect focus on bottom, top gets blurry treatment.
Left hand side of the image, under the window, the bricks on the bottom is in focus, and gets the blurry treatment as it goes up.
The tree, leaves closest to the trunk appears to be in focus, and further out gets the blurry treatment.
Plant box next to the tree, top yellow, OOF, the bottom yellow next to the purple seems to be in focus.
Her outfit, just above her butt, where the top drops below her arm gets the blurry treatment.
The bottom left corner of the frame, gets the blurry treatment, but the subject is in the same focal plane.

So can you do it,… yes you can with some post editing.

Your 17-55 is an amazing lens. That with your T2i should be able to knock your socks off. I guess I am saying that you have the equipment to pull off even much better shots than these. Practice!! ask questions, practice more..

your 85 f1.8 should also produce some sharp pictures!

With the right lighting it's pretty easy to get that kind of shots. Using a long lens (like the 85 you have) and shoot pretty open can help you achieve that look too.

Judging by your equipment list you probably already know what I'm going to say, but I was surprised at how much sharper/crisper my shots got when I started using tripods and remote controls or 2-second shutter release options, even in bright sun-filled settings.
