    Good tips on the 50mm inside use Don, can't wait to see how it works Frank, Don a few more questions, for the tungsten light source remove the shade of the lamp for the bare bulb light? to harsh? Any EV comp. when adjusting the WB or better to leave it alone and just tweak the WB? SSS off because of the long shutter and tripod correct. center weighted metering or does it really matter?
    Thanks as always

    Lightbulb Shooting "Tungsten" portraits

    Too harsh? Well, that depends on the light splash you get into the camera. The camera does not always react the way our eyes do and you also have a lens shield to block side-lighting effects, so you need to evaluate TTL (through the lens). The more light you have, the better.

    EV comp adjusts your manual settings by adding time or aperture to your shot, automatically. If you are shooting (M)anual, EV comp seems to be a redundant process. You can get the same effect by making your own adjustments to your manual settings. Use EV comp with AUTO!

    Absolutely right on the SSS ... leave it off if you are on the tripod. It avoids a feedback issue that might arise from a lack of input to the SSS system, when it is stable. SSS loves to compensate ... all of the time.

    With portraiture, metering should be on the subject, unless the background is important to the shot. It is much better to do studio shots with a light meter, if at all possible. Your background lighting should be an f-stop darker than your subject.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
