A 35mm lens on DX is a normal lens, so don't use it for tight head shots or you'll distort features. Pick up the new 50/1.8 AF-S instead. It's a short telephoto on your camera - classic length for portraits.

I agree not to use the 35mm up close. He will be getting the 85mm eventually so the reason I recommended it over the 50mm is that I would rather have 35mm and 85mm rather than 50mm and 85mm (on a DX).
