    I've been asked by a band to go to a big house where they are recording their second album to get some shots. I'm really looking forward to it - I'll spend a couple of days there!

    Question is, do I need to hire/burrow more than what I've got? I currently have Canon Digital Rebel, 50mm 1.8f, 18-50mm 2.8f, a 100-300mm f5.6-6.7f (can't imagine I'll need that but i'll take it anyway), Canon Speedlite 430EX, tripod and of course the odd filter and memory cards etc.

    Here's a link to an article about the house with some pics.

    You might be surprised how much you may use a longer lens. The wide-angle lens might be good for some shots but you will need to get close for them it might be better for some variety to use the longer lens.

    Good advice cheers. I don't think it'll be a problem getting in too close; I know them pretty well so I'll just bat away any grumbling and get in as close as possible without microphones picking up the sound of my shutter (difficult to judge though)! Annoying a sound engineer might prove more problematic...
