Today, I'm hopeful I'll be allowed to take my camera inside a prestigious car museum. It will be a whistle-stop tour and I won't have time to set up lighting, change lenses, prepare speedlight, etc.
I'm planning on taking just the nifty 50 f1.4, based on the reckoning that I'll be too close for my 70-300 — and also that I don't have a good 24-70 (I have a 24-120 that I don't like) and my kit 18-55 just isn't fast enough.
Plan of action so far is to work Aperture Preferred, Matrix metering, continuous servo AF — but I'm not sure whether to go with Auto-area or 3D. Some of these shots I'm guessing I'll barely have time to stop walking, let alone get comfortable .
I'm considering setting up bracketing to spread the chances of one being better than the others, or even to HDR afterwards; but I'm tending towards thinking I'd do better if I manually "bracketed" aperture instead to try grabbing a selection of high detail shots vs shallow & "arty".
On balance, I'd rather end up with one good shallow DoF shot than a card-full of uninteresting shots sharp across the room.
That would leave me only having to watch my ISO values are keeping exposure times within manageable tolerance.
Does this sound like a sensible plan, overall, or should I be thinking more in terms of "F8 & be there"?
