There are definitely limitations with the lighting and studio set up, this is for sure. These are all hot lights and I usually lose a stop or so beyond a 3/4 length photo. This I know, so that may be part of what you are seeing.

This model stands 5'2", so there may be some perspective issues considering that I am shooting from a lower angle (not really low)

Here are two other photos of the same perspective, same model, mind you the quality may be really bad on them. Just test...

:idea:

How about a 24mm?

With both the 17-35 f/2.8-4 and the 17-40 f/4, you'll be stuck with a lens change for what you're doing and switching to close portrait, but with a 24-60mm you can have your cake and it eat it too!

The only problem is this is a new lens but it's not ultrasonic (HSM), but a constant f/2.8 nonetheless and is of the high-end EX series... the Tamron Di is also excellent but it stops at 28mm.

Canon also has an excellent EF 24-70 f/2.8 L

I have the Tamron 28-70 which I like a lot, but it won't allow me to capture the feet. Which is what brought this whole question up in the first place:angry:

I suspect that a lens change may be my only choice... or a camera change LOL

I can usually shoot all the full length ones at one time... so it shouldn't be too bad...
