    Re: Photography

    Hi Thanks for the advice, will look into a 80mm prime


    An 80mm prime (or equivalent) is the most common/popular lens with portrait photog's.

    For the type of photo booths you see at weddings, however, a wider angle is probably needed; as it'll allow more people to fit in the frame. Also, you'll want a "fast" lens (i.e. a low f" number). Aim for 1.4 or 1.8; don't go higher than 2.8 at the wide end. I'd recommend sticking with the kit lens whilst you're learning the ropes, though.

    You might want an off camera flash also. LED panel lights are a popular choice due to their low cost and low power consumption. However, these cannot be used as strobe flashes, as it seriously reduces the life of the LEDs.[/QUOTE]

    Re: Photography

    I started with kit lens on my Canon 60D some years ago, but it only got fun after i got a Sigma 17-50 1:2.8! I think that is the best 'bang for buck' around, at least for crop cameras. I threw in a 70-200 as well, but for portraits, I have to get a bit too far. Should be better with a full format, but for now, I'm fine!
    A tripod is high on the wish list.. :p

    just keep in mind as the d7200 has a cropped sensor so equivalent focal length of a 50mm lens on my D7000 is around 75mm this may differ for the D7200

    All good advice above. Bear in mind that field of view is a factor but probably more important to portrait photography is distortion of the subjects face. Wide lenses are bad for distortion - they elongate the face and make the nose look much bigger than reality. I used to work in a photo studio and a 100mm or 135mm lenses were considered to give the most natural facial reproduction. My advice is try several lenses at the distance you anticipate taking your photos from and compare the facial reproduction before you make a final decision.

    Re: Photography

    Hey everyone I'm a hobby photographer here. I use a Nikon D3400. It's a really solid little camera and I'm very happy with the results I'm getting. I also work with Photoshop so I'm pretty good at getting images to a professional quality. I would like to put them up online but I'm worries about the images being used for spread without my permission. Does anyone have any experience with that or with copywrite? This isn't really my area of expertise. I know you can put a watermark on them, I've seen that in Photoshop but I think it will also ruin the viewing for people. I Googled copywrite and I've found a few articles, this one was pretty good. But I wanted to know if anyone had any personal experience with this and if so could you share it with me? Any help would be appreciated.

    Removing a copyright mark takes about 2 minutes so marking a photo won't stop somebody using it behind your back if they really want to. And marking or not makes no difference to the copyright status - you take it you own it. Bottom line is you won't know about it unless the photo turns up somewhere it shouldn't - maybe on the front cover of a book in WH Smith. If that does happen, get your brief to call the publisher and point out the copyright infringement and sit back and wait for the cheque to arrive. If it doesn't turn up then what you don't know about can't hurt you.

    On a practical note, photos on photography forums are always very low resolution and wouldn't be usable commercially. Resolution can be restored to some extent but not without loss of quality and publishers won't use anything but the highest quality.

    If you post images online they will be used regardless of any watermarks or copyright in exif data.

    If you think someone is using for commercial use then you can write to them and even invoice them. These days people just screenshot images and repost them.

    Wouldn't really worry yourself about it unless your a pro whose is making money from your shots.
