Hey to all, how do i go about shooting a house warming? especially the fact that i do not know any of the people there.I am honoured to have been ask to do a house warming shoot later but have tons to think about...
How many cameras [( DSLR) i have 3] to bring?
How do i exactly slow people down to take the shot?
Which Lens to bring?


Some Facts and figures... the house has a pool, would be expecting about >100 people there.
Deciding to bring my D80,50mm and my 12-24mm nikon.


Any one can help shed soem experiences and what to look out for?

For house shots you'll probably be shooting wides to medium telephoto, and you'll want low light lenses because indoor lighting tends to suck. I'd recommend 2 bodies, one with a 35mm prime mounted, one with a 85mm 1.8 mounted. And maybe the 12-24 for the wide shots.

:dunno: thinking of D80 hold onto 12-24. D50 hold on to 50mm...
wondering if should bring 90mm macro or 55-105

rich, haha.

pass your prosumer to the kids or a trusted person there let him take. sometimes, ppl in the crowd can take shots with better rapport.

Take just 2 bodies and 3 lens, have fun and shoot.

You are not after award winning shots, but shots of the moments.

Don't get too involved with having to get the "perfect" shots, take time and have fun and just shoot when you can.

I am shure there will be many shots that will bring back the good times to them.

Have fun :)
