Thanks Vinz! This was actually shot with a single speedlight through the lastolite 24 in soft box up and camera left. Man, these shots are tough to set up with the 10 second timer and run back to get in the shot myself but still look relaxed! Not to mention the kids squirming around!!

Need some advice from another person with this lens, about how far back would you have to stand to get a full face / waist up of the person to cover most of the frame outdoors. I have a issue with my current lens 50mm prime that I'm either too far in they face or I'm to far back and I have to crop too much of the image to fill the frame. I want to stand a good enough distance to let them be natural and still keeping them in tight. Will the 85mm be a good lens for my current issues.

do you have any other zoom lens that can cover 85mm, if you have you can zoom it to 85 and see for yourself.

Cropped

I just measured with my daughter and she is 7 and we got an approximate of 6ft with her shoulders and full head. Seemed pretty close. I am sure if I used an adult it might be around 7ft. Wife is not available to try and get a measurement.

EDIT: I just measured with an adult and seems for Horizontal images the distance was from approximately 8Ft and a vertical was around 9ft. Just a quick measurement, and I rounded off to exact feet. Of course everything will change depending on your subject and how tall or short or round or thin etc; there are a lot of variables.
