Long time lurker and first time poster recently I've developed an interest in glamour/lingerie photography and have stumbled upon a fantastic opportunity to get started... A very attractive amateur model and a very cool, bright apartment in Paris. Dayum! Trouble is I have two weeks til the shoot and need to get my indoor lighting tactics down pat :-O I am going to be shooting with my trusty 40d and 17-55... Sadly it's all I have for the next few months until I bite the bullet and get my hands on the 5D/24-70 combo I've always dreamt of. Unfortunately this opportunity won't exist in two months as ill be back in Australia dreaming of such a situation.
Now I have a 430ex speed light and am willing to buy stands/umbrellas/remote flash triggers etc if you think that's how I should go?? Is it? I like a natural look, not soft, but not crazily studio like either.
Please go easy on me and refrain from saying I'm crazy and have no chance of getting a decent shot with this gear... I know it's going to be tough but the model is super easy going as am I... We have all the time in the world to play with settings and create something resembling 'magic'.
What would you buy / what setup would you run with?? Any advice would be much appreciated
Ps. I have the 50mm 1.8 but could swap it for the 1.4 if even that change in lens is worthwhile?
