Sigma 35mm 1.4 vs Nikon 85mm 1.8G for photobooth shoot at 1st B-day party?
Jun 8, 2013

Just got the sigma 1.4 yesterday and will use it for first time tomorrow at my son's 1st birthday.  It's a "mustache bash" theme and I'm going to take pictures of everyone that arrives.  They'll hold a mustache prop with a background.  The party is outside and I'm setting up under some shaded trees.  Going with the grey seamless background.  I'm shooting with a D600.  No plans on using flash.

My question is should I go with the 35mm 1.4 or 85mm 1.8 for best photos.  They're will be as many as 4 people in one shot.  Since I haven't used the 35mm 1.4 yet I'm curious if it will be perfect since I'll need to be a little wide on my shots plus it's supposedly incredible.

Any advice on which lens to use and/or other suggestions on setup or technique.
