Some help?

Hi everyone,
if there is anyone that can help me with a little bit of help and tips about what lens i should use or any help will be so nice



For each of the following photographic assignments, describe the lens,
attachments and filters you would use. Assume that you are shooting on a
small format SLR digital camera with a full size 35mm sensor and have the
following lenses: 20mm, 28mm shift, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 135mm. Please give a brief explanation of why you made the
choices you did.


1. An architect has hired you to photograph the façade of a new ten floor
building he has just completed, constructed of concrete. There are five
story buildings on the street opposite and he wants an accurate
rendition of his work.


2. An architect has hired you to photograph the façade of a new twenty
floor building he has just completed. The design is very modern and he
is looking for a creative photo to enhance his design. There are ten
story buildings on the street opposite. The building is made of stainless
steel and glass.

#1 : 28 mm shift - its a wide angle, so will get the 10 floor building in. The lens would need to be tilted a bit, so you would get converging verticals - so use the 'shift' of the lens to correct.

#2 : I would go for the 85 or 135, and try to get an imaginative crop - or a reflection from the buildings opposite.

ps what's the prize ?

The 85 or 135 have a slight telephoto effect (on 35mm, and bit more when on a dslr) - really nice for portaits - but in the situation that you describe, they might close in 'enough' on a feature to make it easy to examine, while also allowing enough of the surrounding features to be included.

But tell you what - go to your local town and just try it out , you know you want to.

Good luck
