Seeking advice

At work I have been asked to shoot some (semi professional) pictures for use in social media and the departments webpage. This is a Laboratory in a hospital. Typical indoor shots involving researchers and others working in the lab, some shots of officeworkers, detail shots of Laboratory equipment etc.

My gear is a Lumix GX9 and I have the following lenses;

Lumix 12-32 f/3.5-5,6

Lumix 25mm f/1.7

Leica Elmarit 45mm f/2.8

And a telezoom, Lumix 45-150mm f/4-5.6

I mostly shoot outdoors, streetphotpgraphy, landscape, wildlife etc.

The light conditions in the building is pretty good.

Of these lenses, what would be your choice for this kind of mission?

(Or should I invest in something completely different)

I'd want a faster wide lens, but I'm sure you'll do fine with what you have available.

You could consider renting a white balance adjustable LED light to create a bit of separation between your subject and background. Don't overdue the lights influence, just a subtle kick to bring emphasis. Do a test beforehand to establish what white balance you need on the light.

Shoot RAW, shoot lots and have fun.
