I am in a photo II class this semester and it mostly deals with lighting. We have a studio at school that we sign up to use and check out the lights etc. These are using a dyna-lite kit with umbrellas and softboxes. This was my first time ever to use the studio and the strobes. We are supposed to be kind of creative, and I had a really hard time with that this first time. I have done one other shoot, I will post in a separate thread. And I have the studio for 2 hours on friday in which I have 2 guy models and I am trying to come up with something to do. It seems harder for me to think of things for guys than girls. Also I would like to ask if it would be better to use a 70-300mm lens for this kind of photography instead of the 18-70mm i have been using. I plan to buy a 70-300mm lens soon and I just wondered if I should go ahead and get it for my friday shoot.
