Hey everyone, so recently I’ve had the opportunity to team up with a friend that owns a nursing home. Older people are sometimes forgotten and she wanted to make a small book documenting their life in the nursing home to show that they are still very capable, alive, and well and should not be forgotten.
I’ve never documented or done lifestyle photography, but as a friend she wanted me to help with the pictures. I recently moved from canon to Sony so im short on gear. I have a Sony A7iii and the 35 f2.8.
My thought was either the Tamron 28-75 because of its versatility or the Sony 85 f1.8 because it’s much faster, would be better for portraits and cheaper. But again I don’t have much experience in this style so I’m looking to see what you guys think? Also any tips since I’m assuming the photos are more candid orientated, I’ll also have to tell a story and maybe get some closer detailed shots of them with their things? To eventually work up to full body shots of them socializing and doing their daily things.
All help isn’t appreciated thank you!
