Last week I got this message on Facebook, I have answered but I thought I’d do a blog also!
I try not to use a flash unless I have to. Even then I’ll bump up the ISO so I don’t have to. I prefer natural lighting, I think it looks fresher and less harsh. It’s just my personal opinion, some people always work with flash and it works perfectly for their style. If I use a flash, this is what I use. It’s not the biggest or best flash ever but it does the job! I try and bounce flash off walls etc, so I don’t get any shadows!
My favourite lens ever is the 50mm 1.4 and this so happens to be the lens that all my favourite photographs (of mine) are shot with. I love the low f stop that creates the out of focus background and I can use it for bride and groom shoots, small group shots and some detail shots! It’s my favourite.
I’ll do another blog soon on some other lenses I use! Just thought I’d big up my favourite for now.
