Great shot, Gabe. Really like the b&w and contrast.

Here's a shot from the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix car show:

We should exchange prints.
Amazing photo man. Now I would exchange for that... Gabes work with Ev as the model.

Hey Gabe - Are there common focal lengths that you use for your portrait shots or are they just across the board?

I am doing my first photoshoot for a model next weekend... We are doing it outdoors and I don't own any flashes or anything. I normally do architecture and landscape so I was just going to do my normal thing but put her in the scene somewhere.

No, my car wasn't there. I really thought BMW had a good show all in all. Put the MB guys to shame. There were some very clean M5's. I also really liked the gray e21 that was up in front of the Biergarten.

Love this shot. Very surreal. How did you expose this, or is it a composite?

Here are two other shots from this weekend's grand prix:

Hey man.
I think the 35, 50, and 85 are awesome for portraiture. You can obviously replace those 3 individual lenses for a 24-70 and a 70-200, or you can actually get away with it on a 24-70 alone. A couple of friends here only shoot with the 24-70, and it gives them enough reach.

I suggest looking here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/janksterrr/

Everything Evan shoots is basically with the 50, or occasionally the 85.

I think that if you're used to shooting landscapes only, then the longer focal length might throw you off, so I would definitely suggest playing around first.
What focal lengths do you currently own?

Right now I have a 16-35 II, 24-105, and a 70-300. (and a 50 1.8)

You're right though - longer focal lengths throw me off sometimes...

You will be more than fine then. 50 1.8 is great, and you have more than enough versatility available to you.

Hey man..i never/rarely use flash for my portraiture it's all natural light. I only try to shoot around golden hour or at least in open shape to get the best/most flattering light for people. 50mm-85mm is the best for portraiture IMO...at least thats where i tend to shoot
