In contrast I have difficulty using the 35mm focal length for portraits...

    Ever since my wide angle has been sold, my 50mm is the main lens now so it's like a 'universal' lens.

    I just did a casual shoot on a rainy day and I didnt have flash, so guess which lens I used indoors? Hehe! The 50mm of course because its a great lens for location portraits.

    Window lighting + Shallow DOF is a gd formula for portraits

    Cos i now don't have my UWA, so of cos the 50mm becomes the main lens.
