    Great video and I thought it was very informative .However, why don’t
    these tutors ever reply to the comments made .I find this very frustrating
    and shows lack of interest once video has been launched on here 🙁 We are
    all on here to watch and criticise that’s the whole point surely ? :0

    lol dude you’re so cold blooded but i’m pretty sure we were all thinking
    it.

  • By Giant Angry Robot, January 27, 2014 @ 8:08 am

    i don’t think there is a “best” the best lens for the job would depend on
    studio size and the models features. If you had a 1 light setup with a 135
    or 200 and a model with very flat facial features your picture would end up
    looking like a product shot of a dinner plate. the 50mm in the same
    scenario could help creatively exaggerate the model through perspective
    distortion and have a more pleasing look. just my 2 cents though. and for
    the record you don’t need a 85mm 1.2 like this guy haha

    i hear that. kinda upsetting though that so many people see pro gear and
    somehow think the person they are talking to must be a pro. sad.

    Case in point, this guy. Just look at those images. And yet, he apparently
    sees nothing wrong with them. Umm…wow? Welcome to the new age of digital.

    What overwhelmingly horrific makeup? Was the makeup artist a 75 year old
    woman who normally works at the Sears portrait studio on “1/2 off for
    Seniors” days?

    wykkydjvc’s statement about talent is true though. The huge majority of
    “professional” photographers working today, would not have survived during
    the days of film, back when you needed quite a bit of experience, combined
    with considerable skill, combined with talent, combined with marketing,
    combined with….on and on and on. You had to understand how the image was
    going to look with strobes and/or light mods, without actually seeing it.
    Digital has changed everything. For both good, and not.

    I think the 85 MM is a better choice.. I have the 70-200 as well.. I
    prefer the fixed 85.

  • By twoheadedelvis, January 27, 2014 @ 10:47 am

    Might want to read your last sentence again…. Kinda sticking your foot in
    your mouth there – one can certainly use a 50mm as a portrait lens…
    unless that person is hung up on the fact that some claims a 70-200 or
    actually that an 85 is the best option. Sounds like your talent revolves
    around a set of gear as well….

    Nice pics.

    To be honest, it doesnt matter what equipment you’ve got. Its all about the
    subject and light. You can have the most expensive equipment on the market
    but if those two things arent right, it doesnt matter.

  • By wykkydjvc, January 27, 2014 @ 11:52 am

    The statement above that 50mm is perfect portrait lens for crop sensor is
    incorrect. a 70 -200 or actually a 85mm is the best portrait lens for not
    only crop sensor but any sensor.. When your talent revolves around gear
    there is no talent.

    My fx 50mm lens turns into a 80mm on my dx. Not sure if that’s what he was
    going for. I like my 85mm but want a 135mm.

    ISO has nothing to do with pixelation though, you’d want to be concerned
    with megapixels for that. You might introduce some noise, but you’d have to
    get up to a pretty high ISO for that. I don’t think there’s anything wrong
    with a little bit of nice warm film grain look at medium range ISOs. You
    could also get your shutter speed a little faster that way. *shrug*
    personal preference I guess. Great shots! Keep it up!
