Need some advice on taking office staff photos
6 months ago

I need to take a couple of photos of our office staff for our website and letter-sized brochures. We will use a meeting room for the photos, it has good external lighting but there's always a possibility of shadows creeping in. It's a small meeting room, maybe 2.5 meters max between subject and camera. The photos will be taken against a white wall and subjects will be wearing dark suits and background removed from the photos using software.

Any tips on camera (X-E1) settings such as film simulation, exposure, WB, DR, NR, Sharpness etc? For example, with the 35mm would you use 1.4 or maybe 2.0? Would you also get a small studio lights, softbox on a stand? I am limited to the 14mm, 35mm, and 55-200mm lens and also a manual Helios lens.

Thanks.
