I was offered by the company (a hi-tech company) I work to make a photography exhibition of portraits of the company workers.
Since I am not shooting portraits but landscapes and architecture debating whether I really accept the challenge.
What else my only good lens is Tamron 17-50 f2.8 which is not ideal for portraits.
I will ask your best advice Why do I have to accept the challenge (why not I have plenty).
Thanks in advance, Yoav Sinai

its a challenge! and its practice. jump at it and enjoy doing it. you might find something new you love- photographing people! good luck. btw... outdoor photos with a little fill in light can make a very nice business portrait without even buying expensive lights
Don't forget the model releases. ;-)
This is going to be a very interesting project for you. I wish to have this opportunity myself. What are you afraid of? How can you fail on this? Only if you make the sessions boring and unpleasant. Why would you do that?
Forget about lens. You need some studio lights. For about $100-$150 you can have them. You also need a decent background. Don't use the camera flash. Have a tripod.
It will be fun.
The classic portrait lens can be a 85mm 1.4 or 50mm 1.4, portraiture, generally requires a surrender with a soft softfocus! I think that 50 mm has a much more affordable price. Look at the price of a 85 or 50mm F 1.4 Sigma, maybe second-hand prices can be interesting!
