    Which lens would you use?

    Hi there...i've been asked to do a indoor swimwear photoshoot for a friend.
    The venue is small and has both natural light (skylight) and artificial light.
    I'm a learner and this is my first photoshoot.
    I plan to hire a speedlite 430EX11 and reflectors but i'm undecided on lenses?
    I have a Canon EOS 1100D with a EFS 18-55 macro and a 75-300 zoom.
    The space i have to shoot in is a little restricted,so i want to be able to get in close and show detail on the swimwear while capturing the pool and surrounding architecture.
    What lens would you suggest?

    I'll be taking the two lenses mentioned but was thinking maybe i need a wide angle lens?
    Hoping for suggestions.

    Scrap. After you've had a practice, any wide angle would likely be a 10-20mm. This would complement the 10-55.

    Note that if you use wide, you'd want to - maybe - not get too close and cause differential enlargement, ie, distortion that you might not want.

    The likes of a 10-20 would be for wide shots where the people are a bit distant.

    Also, so many lenses might require another body.

    If the venue has a pool, space can't be that restricted, I would think that the 18-55 will give you all the width you are going to need
