I really envy you right now! I just looked trough your other shoots and you most recent one, from Bioshock: I love how you composed the picture with that lightsource.
Also I like and agree with you about your newest Journal entry. I'm going trough a system change right now and I was sure I gonna build up my new system with primes. What I wasn't sure about was if 24, 35 or 50mm is the right for me. 85mm was a given for me. I think it gonna be the 24mm because of the Backround-thingy you mentioned. Time will tell...
Thank you. We were both pretty pleased with the outcome as well. The lighting was quite lovely as it was, not a lot of post processing was required. With prime lenses, I say try them all. Rent one for a day and see the results that you get from it. It's the most productive and inexpensive way to test lenses out in the field. I had the 35mm and 85mm combo for a while before deciding on the 24mm. The 85mm rarely gets out to play these days but it always deliver as far as results go. I had great results in the past with the 50mm but can't really gel with it due to my shooting style.
Tehehe, well trying to become a photographer myself I gotta remember these details myself otherwise the client ends up unhappy with photos that have nothing to do with the general idea of the show, even if I have no clue what its about. xD!
