comment How can I shoot in a studio at the widest apertures?
just a word of warning - if you go for a variable filter make sure it's a good one. two polarisers can impart colour casts on your photo strobist.blogspot.co.uk/2010/06/…

in a normal studio setting i guess you wouldn't have a window - rather you'd use another light (and a modifier). you could then simply put the lights on low power and move them further away in order to make them less bright when falling on the subject. you'd also be able to stand a reasonable distance away and use a more telephoto lens if you so wished.

If you're not easily able to hang something in front of the window, and you don't want to buy either a TTL cable, pocket wizards or an ND filter, a combo solution could be to put the flash on the camera, use HSS and bounce the flash from the wall or the ceiling - depending on the room size and ceiling/wall colours you could probably achieve something similar to using the umbrella doing this. Also the baby will appreciate not being flashed directly!

Thanks very much! I will report back with some results when I can. I hope the flash is a 'flashmatic' one. I may experiment playing with the metering the see how that alters the ambient and the flash. Thanks again

Hey @mattdm thanks for editing the tags - only thing is it's 'agfa' not 'afga'

comment How much post processing advantage is gained when scanning 35mm negatives as TIFF rather than JPG?
In the future I may try and find a place that can scan 16bitt TIFFs and then compare them to JPGs. My understanding from the above (@AJHenderson) is that I would mostly be gaining an advantage in colour, as opposed to detail in shadows/highlights - is this correct?

Thanks everybody Just to update you - after speaking to the lab on the phone they didn't seem to know whether their scanner was 8bit or 16bit but thought it would just be 8bit, so I went with JPGs The chap on the phone said that he thought the 'quality' difference between the two was indistinguishable as he didn't notice any difference in prints made from either. I tried to explain that the difference might lie in post processing but he didn't seem to understand - frustrating as I am specifically using this lab as it seems to be one of the most clued up ones in the UK.

Thanks! Did you mean either of those criteria or both at the same time? If the scanner and files are 16 bit, what sort of difference do you think this would make in comparison to a high quality JPG?
