Going to be shooting Christmas party portraits again this year. One to three people in the photos. The past two years we have had a small tree in the photos. Have been using one strobe at 30-40 degrees off camera axis, and one fill light along the camera axis. Have been shooting f/4-f/5.6.
I've shot high ISO in the past to pickup the lights on the Christmas tree. Is there a better way to do this. The only other way I know is to shoot a slow shutter with the flash (drag the shutter?), but I don't think that will work with live humans in the photo.
Thanks in advance...
