I am shooting with a Canon T1i, and I am fairly proficient with doing portraits, and I am fairly knowledgeable with how to use my camera.
I am tasked with shooting about a dozen sorority girls for graduation, and I am worried because my portrait strategies (with one person) might not work because I am not sure which of my lenses is better. Assume the ladies will all by pretty closely together in a square.
I have two lenses:
- Sigma DC 18-50mm f2.8 DC Ex macro lens
- Canon 28-105mm ultrasonic
I understand that the first one is wide angle, and I am guessing this is better, but I have read a lot about why it might not be the case. I use the second one for portraits usually because I get a decent bokeh effect if I am zoomed out enough.
EDIT: Yes, in retrospect, I realize that my question was very poorly worded. What I am asking, basically, is if we assume that I have direct control over: the background, subject position, my distance from the subject and all of that, IDEALLY, which lens would give me the better result? I hope that is more clear.
