    Try not to use wide angle for portraits.. subject might not be too pleased with the results.... not to mentioned that you'll probably be wielding the lens right in front of the face occasionally..

    Neither... both are too short. You'll get lots of distortion unless you want a small person in a BIG background kinda shot.

    35mm still quite ok. Just walk nearer to the subject for half body shots.



    and walk further for full body shots (subjects seated).



    hmm but since 35mm on crop body will become 50mm... i think more suitable for half body shots then full body.

    or is 50mm more den enough?
    What about those who resort to the 135 f/2 DC? That's perhaps one of the most sought after lens for portraiture! Whilst there's quite a lot of threads out there comparing the bokeh performance amongst these various primes, your desired shooting style plays a great part too.

    WA portraiture be lean more towards the creative side. Background elements, model's outfit, light conditions all have to be well balanced to pull off a WA shot successfully, and there's the issue of whether you can apply distortions in a pleasant, appealing manner. That is why close to 99% of all portrait shots fall under the play-it-safe category (but hey, there's totally no fault in playing it safe!). Go take a peek at this Wide Angle and People group, it's got some interesting shots there.

    And if you really do it well, I don't see why you should get a slap, unless...
    Where does the ocean go...

    He's using D90, cropped sensor.. so it's more like 210mm FL....

    Guys.. can we shift the TCSS to the other thread..

    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=736036

    Especially on the portraiture shooting stuff.. getting a bit too technical

    pinkie hasn't came in for a few days.. maybe the topics we tcss is overdone.. I felt like a gangster sitting at a coffeeshop and driving all the other partons away....

    Let's move the hardcore stuff over there.. TCSS no limits..

    And this thread can remain more softcore.. e.g.. general stuff

    Nikon crop is 1.5x, I guess..

    So, when using 30mm on D90, the picture should come out identical to a 45mm on FF cameras in terms of framing.
