In a few weeks, I am going to a reunion weekend with some old friends, and I will be the officially unofficial photographer. I was wondering if anyone has advice on how he/she would handle this situation. I have the following factors to consider: 1. I need to keep the equipment as simple as possible. It will be mostly candids and reportage-style shooting, mostly at locations where I can't haul a camera bag with me. It means one body, one lens. I am leaning toward a 35/1.4 lens, but some think that 50mm is better. I'm not a fan of zooms, since they are slower (or insanely expensive for the fast ones), and a good portion of this shoot will be at night or indoors. Any ideas? 2. I typically shoot 400 Tri-X all the time, and I want to shoot B&W on this trip too, but I have to consider that our group of friends is very international, with WIDELY varied skin tones. A few (like me) are fair/blue-eyed, there are some mid-range Carribean islanders, and a few from all over India, from the lighter-skinned Northerners, to darker Southerners. The Man of Honor (the groom to be) is the darkest-skinned of them all. I want to be able to do justice to everyone, but I've never shot such a vide variety of skin tones. Will 400 Tri-X be appropriate? Is there something better for this? Are yellow filters helpful in this situation? Do I adjust the exposure to compensate? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
