comment Lens for shooting paintings with Canon 550d
@Nick Miners Can you post the calculation so I can replicate it with other focal lengths?

If I'm using artificial lighting (and a tripod, obviously) I should be able to have suitably long exposures to shot at F8, right?

Thanks for the answer Sergiu. Fortunately at this stage most of the work is greyscale charcoal drawings and etchings so I don't have to worry too much about colour (although this will change in future).

@Nick Miners Great, thanks for clarifying that. At 105mm, how far back would I need to be to photograph at 3m artwork? Also, what are the characteristics of a Macro lens such as the one you recommend?

Thanks for the recommendation. Considering this is an APS-C sensor (I think), does your suggestion of greater than 80mm need to be translated to greater than 50mm?
