This has been a big summer for our family...my brother-in-law and his girlfriend are expecting a baby in October, and my sister just got engaged. I've been taking pictures for a while, but only recently have dived into the M,A,S,P settings instead of the presets. When I have taken pictures on these settings before, they are hit and miss--sometimes they turn out great, and other times, not so much.
I've been asked to take engagement and maternity pictures for my family, and I don't want to mess up the pictures for them, or spend lots of time trying to figure out the settings while they are sitting/standing around. So I thought I'd ask fellow Nikon users for some advice and insight.
In a maternity and engagement photo shoot...
-What lens would you use? (I currently have the starter kit (AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 and the AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 1:4-5.6) and a prime lens AF-S Nikkor 35mm 1:1.8)
-What settings do you find work best?
-Any advice on taking engagement and maternity pictures?
Thank you fellow Nikon photographers!
