    Hi Angela,

    I used the 28-135mm for this shoot. But I also use the 50mm f/1.8 a lot for portraits. I'm sure you will like the 50mm lens. The 28-135mm is a great all-around lens because it gives me a fairly nice zoom range for outdoor stuff, but is also sharp enough for portrait work.

    I think you did a nice job with these. The last one with everyone looking in a different direction is a little distracting, but still a nice shot. I like the vignetting as well. Good job.

    Thanks Johnboy! I know exactly what you mean. It was nearly impossible to get them all to look directly at the camera at the same time. I had the parents and their neighbor in back of me at all times trying to get them to look in my direction, but their eyes kept wandering. This shoot was getting tough near the end, but overall I enjoyed it. ;-)

    Hey Kathi, thanks for the comments! As always, I appreciate your kind words. :)

    Hey Zen,

    We waited until late afternoon, around 5 pm maybe. I used the 28-135mm lens. I was back about 20-25 feet (on my belly most of the time) and zoomed all the way in to 135mm for good depth of field.

    Stupid question is 28-135 a wide angle lens? Can you tell me what wide angle lens you would reccomend thats fast and can take big group shots.
