As for lenses, as "superkoax" writes, the 85mm F/1.2L is "State of the art" when it comes to portrait/people photography, as 85mm is where the face does not look to flat or to big... so if you mainly do portrait, make sure that you have a lens that covers 85mm ... (75-300 , 70-200 or similar) and remember to add up if you buy a camera with a smaller chip (Canon 400D x1.6 , Canon 1D x1.3)

By going for the Fullframe camera´s you will also have real Wideangle, not all that + Crop Factor...and you will get a better "Depth of field" with a FF

It is hard to recommend anything, but i would go for Canon fullframe, and if it is not the 1DsII i would buy a batterygrip right away, as most portrait pictures is taken in "Portrait" mode and you will then get the Shutter button where you need it.

And for lenses i would definately go for Canon lenses and especially the L series... it is expensive, but it delivers quality..

You could also go for Nikon, but i would not be able to help you here as i am brainwashed ;-) i have always had Canon...

Hi Jasz,

Thankyou very much for that helpful information! After reading all of that and doing some research, you're definitely right about that Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II camera and the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM lenses being an outstanding combination. And at the moment my budget is doing fine for me to go out and buy this!

However, I have one last question about Canon camera's, bare with me; the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II's are really good, but what about the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III's? I have just noticed that they are a brand new version, would it be better for me to purchase the Mark III instead of the Mark II? Is there a big difference? Does it really matter?

Thanks again, I appreciate your time!
Jordan

That's great. I'm still in the early stages of building my retouching/digital imaging portfolio and my website. I'll definitely let you know when it's all set and launched.

High key effect. Almost passed on these pix because I did not like them (the other pix is in the thread "Ultra high key saturatiion". Uploaded there as an example. Found out that I could not upload here also).

Used a copy of the red channel pasted into a layer with mode luminosity and reduced opacity to taste. The only thing in the red channel is the eye area so that this darkens and increases the apparent saturation of the eyes and makes them pop.

Hi Jordan

There is no 1Ds III only a 1D III which is a camera for sports and press.. it is very fast, 10 pics a second, but you have crop factor 1.3 on it and you "only" have 12 mpix. It is extremely good at high ISO´s

Just ask, and i will do my best to answer..
