    yes, another what lens question!

    engagement shots, around 630pm.

    I have 35mm 1.8, kit 18-155, 55-200 zoom, and I recently bought a 50mm 1.8 (not autofocus, I've yet to really play with this lens, so)

    We will be doing shots around a downtown area, old buildings, there is a pier and a park.

    What would YOU choose?

    I would choose to bring all three.

    Plus a flash.

    Plus a reflector/diffuser.

    Plus a CPL filter.

    Plus a bottle of water.

    :)

    I have an SB-600 but I have to use it on camera.

    I do not have a reflector as of yet. Should I get a poster board? and use that?

    I can probably get a CPL filter tomorrow, but the reflector I'm ordering online. It is like 1/3 of the cost of the local camera store.

    I have 4 lens, so I should use them all? I mean it isnt a big deal to switch lens I know but I am nervous! haha

    Great! That is still miles ahead of the built-in flash. Read your manual again before the shoot just to brush up on something you may have forgotten.

    As your changing lenses, just take your time and still connect with your model. Explain that your changing lens to get (fill in the blank) effect on the next series. Have a drink of water, chat with your model, crack a joke. It's not a matter of shoot shoot shoot, it's people skills employed to get the best for your customer.

    Bring all your lenses, that's for sure.
