Given the quality of the feedback that this group provides, I'm going to just hang my rookie status out there and accept the fact that I need help. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Long time recreational shooter who has finally decided to get in and do a little studio shooting. I'll never make money at it, but that's not really why I'm doing it (except for IRS purposes).
Currently shooting a Canon 1D with limited lens selection (Canon EF-300mm, Tamron 28-70 mm, and Tamron 70-300mm). Bought the camera and Canon lens used from a friend in "the biz" at a screaming deal when his company upgraded their equipment, and had the other lenses from my previous Elan-IIe. I'm ready to get serious.
I'll be doing Rolando's Chicago workshop in April, and want to make sure that I've got the right stuff in the case when I arrive. Given the 1.3 mag factor on the Canon 1D, I suspect that I could probably make do with what I have, but that is an amateur's speculation. I want to know what an experienced photographer would do.
I will be upgrading to all Canon lenses from this point on (since I clearly now have more money than good sense), so spending a bit to do this right is an option. My thanks in advance for your comments.
