I am doing a birthday/cake smash in a couple weeks for a friend, and thought I'd get some of your input.
I haven't done much studio like shots as I mostly am just outside. I have a background stand and I'm getting a white paper background to use and sit the baby and cake on. That way I have a smooth seamless background. I have 3 speedlites I can use if needed. Most likely 2, one being on camera with probably a Fong, and the other on a stand and umbrella. This should be sufficient with the white background, huh?
What lens would you use for this? I may have room to use my 70-200, and if so, that's what I'll use. If not I'll use my 24-70, but I dont like the lower end of it. Would the 50 1.8 work better? I've considered getting a 35 or 50mm prime as well.
What do you use and how do you set it up? Thanks!
