Need help with portraits
Hi, I'm starting a project that invovles portraits of mostly middle aged people. I'm planning on square format, 3/4 view with some enviroment/background. Available light supported by a reflecter and possibly a 500 watt flood. B&W. I'm using a Yashica A and a Bronica SQa w/80mm lens. The question is how best to make them look good. Show the character, not the spots and such. I'm using 400 film (Arista), Fomadon R09 (new), and standard developement. I'm not adverse to new equipement (I love to buy things), but I refuse to get a new lens for the Yashica!
we're all showing our age!:o
