Hello all! For start, I'd like to say that I am relatively new in all this photography world, I've been shooting portraits, landscapes and automotive photography, but now I have an opportunity to shoot a fashion event (bridal runway show) with no experience at this kind of photography at all. Which of my lenses should I take? Shoot with flash or without it? If I should use flash, should I use a soft box diffuser or omnibounce? What settings do you suggest?

I have Canon EF 50mm f/1.8II, EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 and Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3
and flash Wansen WS-560 flash

Is there a reason not to take all three lenses? I'd rather have options with me.

Of course I will take 'em all :)
But wanted to hear some experienced tip which setup would make the best for start (I will be changing it when I see actual conditions at the show, to make it fit the best)

Also I'm not actually sure how to set up the flash manually since it doesn't have TTL function?

Well, knowing absolutely nothing about the venue or your placement, I'd start with the 18-200.

As to the flash, if you don't know how to set up the flash manually, you probably don't want to start now.
