I like Ms for portrait stuff, it's kinky. =) available light is the way to go with Ms, in my eyes. anywhere, anytime.
I haven't used my M4 with studio and studiolighting so far though.

Personally Dave ... I like portraits best in as close as I can get with a fast 50mm wide open in natural light. Depending on the subject I also don't like them too sharp which is where my 1.2 Canon is excellent. The second one is with a 50mm Nokton ... which I don't have any more as I really like the look of the Canon better.

Each focal length brings something to a portrait. I personally prefer portraits with normal (50mm) - to normal wides (35mm, 28mm).

Here's a couple with a 50mm (the first is with M2, coll. Summicron, Neopan 1600, HC110B and the second with MP, Summilux 50 Asph., HP5, Rodinal, the last one MP, Summilux 50 Asph., TriX, Rodinal) :

While posed, studio work is nice, the informal style seems to be the trend nowdays (like what's shown above). A fast 50mm to 75 or 90mm will work well.

Todd,

I always love your work - while both of these are great, the second one of these is so immaculate !!

Have to agree with Simon on that child-with-cars portrait of Ron, that is a very strong image. If the kid were naked it would have been a Sally Mann shot! ;-)

Todd, love the ones you posted as well.
