So, need some advice, I have a shoot tomorrow downtown Denver on 16th st mall.. see link below for shot examples.
What Im wondering is basically I have two lenses which I finally just got, in fact opened them last night. I have my Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC and Sigma 17-50 2.8 OS. I know most of the shots will be with my Tamron, but (and know it composition specific) but would I be best to leave it around 135mm (or 85mm on my crop) I know it depends on a lot of things.. However, if I would have walked in there with an 85prime or 135prime, then it would be a different story.
Also, I would prefer not to bring out my soft box bag but looks like some of these shots almost require it (see below)
I’m going to try and see if I can maybe use enough ambient to still achieve this look.. or would it be best to bring it anyway? I’m just thinking since it’s just me then transporting up and down the mall will be a pain.
Would there even be a decent time to switch to the 17-50? Say if I wanted 85mm and I just went to the 50mm range on the Sigma? Quality wise stick to the Tamron?
